Microsoft Announces Surface Plus For Business Program

Microsoft launches Surface Plus upgrade plan

The Surface Plus program is described by Microsoft as a "flexible financing" option available exclusively in the United States at Microsoft Stores and online at Microsoft.com.

You won't pay any interest, and will just be charged the normal price of the Surface hardware providing you opt for a 24-month payment plan - any longer than a two-year contract and interest kicks in at 19.99% April for subsequent years. As long as you have been making regular payments and haven't fallen behind, you will be eligible to upgrade to a brand-new device after 18 months. "Surface Plus and Surface Plus for Business are flexible financing options created to help more people and businesses take advantage of the power of Surface".

One can pay for their Surface in easy installments which would be spread over 24 months at-least. Upgrades allow you to get the latest Surface device after 18 months. "We're going to see lots more of this, with hardware vendors packaging up access to one or more devices on a subscription basis with additional subscriptions to software, content or other services layered on top". It's a simple plan to enable customers to jump on the hardware that Microsoft has so meticulously created. That's a good deal if you always planned on getting the next big thing, but you'll pay more than you would if you paid upfront, held onto a machine for a few years and updated later. Surface Plus for Business also comes with the Microsoft Complete for Business extended service plan with accidental damage protection. Buyers also get service and support at microsoft Stores and a 30-day return policy. All of the business machines ship with Win 10 Pro, and Office 365 adds $8/month to the cost.
