Finance Your Next Surface Hardware Purchase with the Surface Plus Program

Following the introduction of the Surface as a Service program a year ago, which provided Surface devices to businesses on subscription plans, Microsoft has debuted a similar offering aimed at consumers.

Once you upgrade to a new Surface device, your 24-month payment plan resets.

The Surface Plus program will launch today at 12:00 pm EDT.

Microsoft is bringing these benefits to small and medium-sized businesses as well. Corporate customers using the plan can buy Surface devices for employees and pay in 18, 24, or 30-month installments. 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.

-Dedicated Service & Support: Surface Plus offers best in class service and support from Microsoft Stores.


Surface Plus is available exclusively for customers in the United States at Microsoft's brick-and-mortar stores and online. Included in the perks are 10% off future Microsoft products, a 30-day return policy, a free year of in-store support, and, best of all, the option to upgrade to a newer Surface model after 18 months.

Starting today, anyone who buys a Surface Laptop, Surface Pro, Surface Book, or Surface Studio online at Microsoft.com and in Microsoft stores, will be enrolled in the program.

- Device Protection: Surface Plus for Business offers peace of mind with the Microsoft Complete for Business extended service plan with accidental damage protection.

Developed with Microsoft's N-trig technology, the new Surface Pen includes tilt detection, 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, and just 21ms of latency, which prompted the company to declare it "the fastest digital pen on the planet" in May. Surface Plus for Business will also let businesses get Office 365 for Business with an additional $8.25 per user per month. The number of devices under the agreement can also change during the middle of the term as well, the post said.
