It’s back to school time in the USA!
Yes, I realize that some of the rest of the world has already gone back to school but in the U.S., parents and students alike are in the “shopping for back to school stuff” mode.
So, if you have been longingly looking at the Surface tablets as a replacement for your old laptop or have wished for accessories for one you already have, this may be a good time for you because Microsoft is offering all sorts of good deals.
Here are the back to school sales on Surface tablets:

Side note: Also, if you are interested in getting a Windows Phone for going back to school, Microsoft is offering the Lumia 640 (black) with no contract for only $71.10, right now. It is the AT&T version. I have a Lumia 630 and absolutely love it, it is perfect for my needs and I bet it would be great for anyone going off to school.
All in all, these are pretty good back to school sales on Surface tablets and other electronics from Microsoft. Happy Shopping!
