Discounts of $200 - $300 off 6 differently spec'd Surface Book 2's

Authorized dealer
Lowest I've seen for those that don't qualify for student/military discounts

Best if you live in one of their tax free states:
Sales tax is charged based upon the state the order is being shipped to.
Sales Tax Charged (includes APO/FPO and PO Boxes): CA, CO, GA, IL, KS, MA, MD, MI, MN, MO, NJ, NY, OH, PA, TX, VA
No Sales Tax Charged: AL, AK, AZ, AR, CT, DC, DE, FL, HI, ID, IN, IA, KY, LA, ME, MS, MT, NE, NV, NH, NM, NC, ND, OK, OR, RI, SC, SD, TN, UT, VT, WA, WV, WI, WY

Otherwise microsoft store's VR bundle is probably a better deal

I purchased the 15" 16 GB 512 version from Best buy a few days ago for $2899. This is showing $2699, for the same version. I will head over first thing in the morning to get a price match with this one from MicroCenter. With my $200 worth of BB RWZ Certs, and a 10% off coupon that they send me every year for having the BB mastercard, after taxes that will bring my total down from $3102.92 down to $2265.93.

Thanks OP! This information helped me out bigtime!

Didn't realize these were that much. I thought MacBooks were expensive.

These are microsoft's mac book pro competitor. More powerful, supposedly greater battery life, and detachable touch screen. They were just released last month so discounts have been a bit difficult to come by.

Not a competitor because MacBook pro isn't even in the same level.

Why?

SB2 has the following MBpro doesn't have:
  • 2 million more pixels
  • Dedicated video card for gaming - GTX 1060 with 6GB RAM
  • Supports 4096 level MS ink - stylus.
  • Detacheable Tablet mode.
  • Tent Mode
  • 17 hours of battery life (vs 10 hr on the MBpro)
  • XBox mode (you can connect your Xbox controller)
  • Front and back camera
  • Six sensors—ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer—let apps do things like track motion and determine location.
Surface Book 2 is simply on a different league, way above MBpro.

Looks like Greentoe has added 13" models of SB2, with 15" coming soon. Be interesting to see what deals come from there.

What is everyone doing it adding warranty when purchasing from microcenter? The MS Damage plan you have to buy from MS site with the SB2, otherwise you have to go to a store and have the computer inspected.
