Microsoft Surface Plus explained: Upgrade and finance your device now

Under the program, which covers the Surface Laptop, Surface Pro, Surface Book, and Surface Studio, customers will be able to purchase a Surface device through a 24-month payment plan with no interest. After 18 months, you can upgrade to the latest Surface device, as long as you turn in your existing gadget and agree to a new 24-month payment plan for the new one.

Once you upgrade to a new Surface device, your 24-month payment plan resets.

Following the introduction of the Surface as a Service program past year, which provided Surface devices to businesses on subscription plans, Microsoft has debuted a similar offering aimed at consumers. With Surface Plus, you will not have to pay large upfront fees and can enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that you will never have an out-of-date device. This will start the process over again, as the user will then begin paying off the new device with 24 monthly payments. See program FAQs and Terms and Conditions for additional information.

To get a Surface device under this plan, you'll have to apply online at the Microsoft.com site or through one of the physical Microsoft Stores.

As a result, Microsoft is looking to entice buyers that would have otherwise passed on Surface hardware with the new Surface Plus and Surface Plus for Business financing programs. Customers also have the option to add the Microsoft Complete extended service plan. With PC competition so fierce, Microsoft is getting creative in ways to make the Surface more affordable - and to make students and individual buyers pause before buying a new Apple Mac.

All customers on this program will have the option to add the Microsoft Complete extended service plan. Business also get service plans with accidental damage coverage. Business can also aff $8.25 monthly to get productivity software, presumably Office 365.

Unlock all the benefits of Surface Plus, including phone and in-store technical support. Microsoft is looking to woo students and businesses with the plan.

Those who finance under this program are given the option of upgrading their device after 18 months have passed, just like with a smartphone.
