The Surface RT tablet sure looks like an appealing gadget to own but the price might be a drawback, even if it’s not more expensive than it’s counterparts. That’s why, any offer, deal that we can get is a cheaper blessing, because it decreases the overall pricing of the device. Many of us need a tablet keyboard for increased productivity, and with the Surface RT, things are just the same.
But if you’re looking to get a Touch Cover for your Surface RT, then you should that it comes at the $120 price (that’s in the United States). Those residing in the United Kingdom and looking to buy the Surface RT have now another reason – you will get a free Touch or Type Cover with your purchase.
Free Touch or Type Cover with Surface RT purchase in the UK
This Surface RT deal is limited in time, though, running between 15 May 2013 and 30 June 2013. It is also available only for United Kingdom residents. Head on to the Windows Store, if you’re reading this from UK or you have a friend or relative who can gift it to you, and get the device. Here’s how the official Surface RT promotion reads:
Buy any model of Surface RT and get a Surface Touch or Surface Type Cover FREE. Please ensure you add your Surface Touch or Surface Type Cover to the cart when purchasing your Surface RT device to redeem the offer. Offer available between 15/05/2013 and 30/06/2013. Offer is subject to availability. This offer cannot be combined with any other offer or discount. Offer available to UK residents only
So, you should really hurry up as it also might have limited availability. What’s really awesome is that the limited editions of Touch and Type Covers are also included, as you can see in the image from above. You don’t need to add any promo codes at all, you just need to finalize the shopping.
Currently, there is no news as whether this promotion will appear or not in other countries, but it really makes sense. Consumers get confused when they are being told that they need to pay more to get the most of a certain device. If Microsoft will bring this great Surface RT deal to other countries, they have all the reasons to sell much more than they did so far.
