As graduation season is upon us, many parents are getting ready to send their kids to college next year. If you are one of those parents or students, this program is for you!
One major expense when it comes to school, besides tuition, can often be purchasing a PC. Thankfully this week Microsoft launched a new seasonal student buying program called “Chip In” to help students get a new Windows 8 PC for back to school.
A new program only in it’s first year, Chip In lets students with a valid .edu email address crowd-source funds to help them purchase a qualified PC of their choosing from MicrosoftStore.com.
Basically you set up the account and have friends and family members chip in to fund the computer’s purchase.
In addition, Microsoft will “chip in” 10% of the purchase price! AND if you are one of the first 10,000 students to fully fund their PC, Microsoft will also “chip in” Office 365 University at no additional charge! That is a $79 value!
The program begins June 4, and runs through September 1, 2013.
I am part of the Windows Champions Program. As a Windows Champion I received loan of a laptop and may receive other equipment from Microsoft to assist me in evaluating Microsoft products and services for my blogging activity.
