Surface products represent some of the best laptops on the market, and they're generally viewed by other manufacturers as inspiration for the Windows portfolio. The premium design doesn't come cheap, and it's always recommended that you pick up a Surface product when it's on sale. While big sales events like Prime Day, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday almost always have Surface products on sale, there are plenty of other opportunities to save money with killer laptop deals. Regional holiday and social events (like back to school season) will often come with tech discounts, but it's never a bad idea to check out Surface deals on the chance you'll find some deep savings.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are just a few weeks away, and we're already seeing deals on Surface (and other Microsoft products) go live as we approach the event proper. We'll be sure to keep this curated list updated with the best Surface deals around.
Microsoft's lineup of Surface PCs is more limited than a lot of other manufacturers. It aims for more of a quantity over quality approach, so you'll often see the same products week after week. That doesn't mean we aren't keeping the sale prices and promotions updated so that you're still seeing fresh deals.
Microsoft's website lets you configure your device as required and will let you bundle accessories and software, but it doesn't always offer the best prices on standalone hardware. Third-party retailers like Best Buy and Amazon frequently host Surface sales, so it's always a good idea to shop around. We created this curated list to take some of the legwork out of the process.
Being able to tell if you're getting a good deal generally requires a bit of background knowledge and pricing history. You don't always have to pay the lowest price in history, but it's never a bad idea to get close to the previous low. If you're shopping at Amazon instead, a tool like CamelCamelCamel can display the product's pricing history for easy comparison.
