Recently purchased a Surface Pro 3 at Best Buy and was able to stack the educational discount coupon with the mover's coupon.

Currently, the i5 and i7 models are $100 off at Best Buy.

i5 (128gb) [bestbuy.com]: $899.99 - $100 EDU - 10% Movers = $719.99 + tax
i5 (256gb): [bestbuy.com] $1,199.99 - $100 EDU - 10% Movers = $989.99 + tax
i7 (256gb): [bestbuy.com] $1,449.99 - $100 EDU - 10% Movers = $1,214.99 + tax
i7 (512gb): [bestbuy.com] $1,849.99 - $100 EDU - 10% Movers = $1,574.99 + tax


Here's a Best Buy forum post [bestbuy.com] showing that you can stack a mover's coupon with the college student deals coupon.

Whether you think the price is unreasonable, it's still a deal because its 20 to 28% off retail.

I was able to do it last week. Take the forum post and tell them that the Best Buy social media specialist said it's fine with company policy. Also, the mover's coupon terms and conditions has no restrictions related to using it with another coupon.

Just because a company sets a retail price for a product doesn't mean said product is worth the the set price...Way to expensive!!

An i7, with 8 gigs of ram, 256gb SSD, 2160x1440 resolution 12" screen, built in front and back cams, 10 point touch, digitizer for pen, weighing 1.76 lbs and getting around 8 hrs battery life . . . while being 0.36" thick.

Not reasonable for $1200 . . . .?


I have bought two i7 units, they are AMAZING! You are getting a full laptop replacement + tablet all in one.

I think to many people try to compare this just to a tablet, like an ipad, and wonder why it's more expensive. This is blending an Ipad and Macbook Air all in one, and adding way more features.

I have the Pro 1 for quite a while now and the only thing that makes me want to upgrade is the terrible battery life it has. Does Pro 3 have a significant increase in battery life? How is it compared to latest MBA?

Care to elaborate?

I have been shopping for ultrabooks, which is what this is really competing with. All of the comparable ones, e.g. Ativ Book 9 Plus, Dell XPS 13, Asus Zenbook, etc, cost about the same. This however can double as a gigantic tablet when needed.

1. This is a repost.
2. It's super ymmv.
3. You need to be a student for it to work at all.
4. You need to go to the post office to get the coupon, which is a pain!
5. Even if 1 through 4 don't bug you, it's still too expensive unless the digitizer pen is a big deal to you. While the pro 3 does double as a tablet, it's not a great tablet unless the pen is crucial to you.
6. It's also not a great laptop in many ways. One USB port, only a micro sd slot, the kickstand is great but you can't use this device in many places where a clamshell laptop works great.

It's just too many trade offs for me. For others it may work, but it's still ymmv and a repost.

1: It's $25 less than previous post if I'm not mistaken.
2: It seems mild YMMV to me based on info provided.
3: That still applies to a TON of SDers.
4: Drive by the post office on the way to BB for like $80 savings. ..... worth it to most folks I think.
5: Threadc*** much? It's a really popular device that plenty of folks are buying. If you don't like the device why even click the post?
6: Again why are you here if you dislike the device?

Thanks for the heads up on the USPS BB mover's coupon. Didn't know BB was included. I need a numeric keypad, so unfortunately no Surface for me. But may use coupon for something else.

Get a power cover and you'll be happy again. my gf confiscated mine and is using it for school so I got her a power cover and 6+ hours of battery life in average, got it used in eBay for $100.

As for stacking movers coupon and edu that's a big YMMV! don't write that in the deal like it's an absolute truth because it's not, I've never been able to stack both and I've tried multiple times at different best buys. Some people get lucky but they are in the minority. And the price is not slick, you still have to favor in the keyboard, don't forget that which is another $80-100. At this point in its life cycle I'm waiting for the refurbs.

If you think it's a repost, report it to the mods and let them decide. By the way, you're supposed to report a repost, not comment on a repost.
