Microsoft has launched their special deal for students in the US market.
The company is offering a free Xbox 360 4GB edition for free if a student from a recognized institute purchases a Windows computer worth USD 599 or more.
Microsoft spoke about this offer:
Starting May 20th in the U.S., students who buy a qualifying Windows PC worth $699 or more at participating retailers can get a 4GB Xbox 360 console for free, just like last year! Starting May 18th in Canada, students who buy a Windows PC worth $599 or more can also get a 4GB Xbox 360 console for free! Participating retailers in the US include Best Buy, Dell.com, Fry’s Electronics, HPDirect.com, Microsoft Stores, and NewEgg.com. In Canada, they include Best Buy, Dell.ca, Future Shop, Staples and The Source.
We are surprised that they are giving away Xbox 360 console which is already doing so well. And most students would have it already. The company could have done better for themselves by offering a free Windows Phone smartphone instead!
