Great deal if you are thinking about buying a surface. But it's funny how when you click on the VR headset that it's including, it pairs it up with much cheaper laptops that are VR ready.

How in the hell are they fitting a 1060 into a surface book. That's going to be technically a VR (Vive and Oculus Rift) capable tablet, I bet it only runs the 1060 if it's plugged in.

Like the deal, but the price on the Surface Books. They have to come down right?

You can also get free or discounted headset with less expensive laptop... for example, this [bestbuy.com] Dell for $650 (Elite early access deal). See all eligible laptops and desktops here [bestbuy.com].

Do you have a link of the actual promotion? I ordered mine last week and I am trying to match it but Best Buy CSR needs the actual link to see if I am eligible.

Yeah, and it's rare that the coupon actually works with a bundle. There are a ton of exclusions so the fact that it works with the mixed reality headsets on a brand new flagship product is kinda surprising. I wouldn't be surprised if BB changes that.

I've been waiting for the SB2 and was going to buy one anyway, so the free MR headset was a bonus. The 10% birthday coupon was the icing on the cake. Plus I had around $500 in accumulated gift cards. Also bought BB gift cards with my BB Visa, got 5% rewards, and put the rest on my Amex for the $25 cash back. Worked out pretty well.

I contemplated driving down to Oregon to avoid Washington sales tax, but 270 miles round trip wasn't worth the time or gas.

One thing to keep in mind - the SB2 doesn't have display port or HDMI out. You'll need a USB-C to HDMI for all/most of the MR headsets listed above.

This one [amazon.com] is confirmed working [youtube.com] but there are cheaper ones that would probably work as well. I ordered this particular once since it's HDMI, USB, and USB-C as opposed to the cheaper ones for just HDMI.

Dammit, excludes prior purchases. I would do return and re-buy but it may take a couple of days before the refund posts.

Long shot, but would anyone happen to have a birthday coupon I could use? Are these account bound? If I register, they probably wouldn't send it right away, would they? Thanks in advanced! Been eyeing a Surface Book for a while now -- this seems to be a nice incentive.

How do you get the birthday coupon? I got one two years ago and yet last year and this year I did not receive one.

Also, I posted this same thing earlier but I got thumbs down?! Why?
