Microsoft has just announced that they will be bringing back their popular deal that allows any student purchasing a PC to receive a free Xbox 360. Participating retailers will give all students who purchase a qualifying PC priced at least $699 a 4GB Xbox 360 for free.
The deal will begin in the U.S. starting on May 20. This is just in time for students shopping for the fall semester. Customers in Canada will be able to take advantage of this deal a few days earlier on May 18. With this Xbox 360 promotion and the discounted upgrade path to Windows 8 which begins June 2, this may be one of the best times to buy a new Windows PC.
Retailers that will be participating in the deal in the US will include Best Buy, Dell.com, Fry’s Electronics, HPDirect.com, Microsoft Stores, and NewEgg.com. In Canada, they include Best Buy, Dell.ca, Future Shop, Staples and The Source.
