Microsoft Rolls Out New Surface Payment, Upgrade Program

Microsoft has announced two new programs today that the company hopes will make it easier for organizations to buy Surface hardware.

Financing is offered to businesses in different increments, with the option to upgrade devices during the tenure of the financing.

When it comes to Windows-based computers, Microsoft's Surface family are among the best on the market thanks to first-party status, handsome designs, great performance and excellent build quality.

Alternatively, you can visit the physical store in the United States to get Surface Plus. Additional benefits for customers who shop at Microsoft Stores include a 30 day hassle free return policy, a Surface training and health check, and a year of free in-store support and technical assistance.

It allows users to combine as many Surface devices as they want into a single agreement, mixing and matching different Surface models.

In addition to the Surface Laptop and Surface Pro, Microsoft's new Pen is also compatible with the Surface 3, Pro 3, Pro 4, Book and Studio. Customers can spread the cost of a Surface device over 24 months with zero interest and can upgrade at 18 months if the device is returned in good condition. Surface Plus for Business will also let businesses get Office 365 for Business with an additional $8.25 per user per month.

Flexible Terms: Businesses can choose flexible 18, 24, or 30 month periods, with the ability to upgrade devices after just 12 months on a 24-month term (after 18 months on the 30-month term).

All customers on this program will have the option to add the Microsoft Complete extended service plan. Unfortunately, there is now no information on how the trade-in process works when you're ready to upgrade or if you will receive a purchase credit for the old device. The number of devices under the agreement can also change during the middle of the term as well, the post said.
