The Surface Duo is an intriguing dual-screen tablet / smartphone hybrid, but its starting price of $ 1,400 definitely puts it outside the realm of accessibility for many people. Those who are interested in a Surface Duo, but don’t want to shell out the full price, should check with Best Buy or Amazon, where the device is currently offered at a huge discount. This applies to the 128 GB and 256 GB models, but of course, there is a problem if you want to get the full discount – at least in relation to Best Buy.
Specifically, both models have a $ 450 discount from Best Buy at the moment, lowering the 128 GB model to $ 949.99 and the 256 GB model to $ 1,049.99. Although these two models are unlocked, you will still need to activate the device on an operator if you want to get the full discount. Best Buy offers the option to activate with Verizon or AT&T.
If you choose not to activate it today, you will still save $ 400 (which brings the 128 GB model to $ 999.99 and the 256 GB model to $ 1,099.99). This is still not a bad discount, although it is a pain in the ass to lose $ 50 simply by choosing not to activate the Surface Duo today. It is important to note that $ 400 discounts are also available on Amazon, and both models have Prime shipping
According to Hot Hardware, Amazon and Best Buy are not the only places where you can find discounts for the Surface Duo this week. There are rumors that Microsoft is launching its own sale of the Surface Duo on Friday, but it is not known whether or not we will see such deep discounts on the Microsoft Store.
We also don’t know how long these Best Buy and Amazon discounts will last, so those who are eager to get a Surface Duo can be better served by skipping these offers now, rather than waiting for Microsoft’s discounts. Check out the timeline below for more information on the Surface Duo.
