Microsoft is obviously looking to increase PC sales as the company is offering students a free Xbox 360 4GB console with the purchase of any Windows PC worth $599 or more.
The free Xbox 360 console will be available in the US and Canada to students who purchase a new Windows laptop or PC which costs $599 or more, from certain retailers.
The school year is wrapping up for many but for those who are graduating high school – thoughts are already on the upcoming school year this fall and starting college. Starting college can be a big adjustment and we’d like to help with that. 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.
