Hey everyone, I just heard about this and thought I’d let you in on it because it’s a great deal.
Microsoft has started selling an updated Microsoft Work & Play bundle which could be really handy for Surface owners, especially if you travel a lot or call overseas frequently.
This service bundle includes one-year subscriptions to the following:
- Office 365 Home (Including 1TB of OneDrive space)
- Access to 2 million paid Wi-Fi locations via Skype Wi-Fi
- Skype Unlimited World Calling
- Xbox Live Gold
- Assure Support Plan
- $60 Microsoft Gift Card
Here’s a short video from Microsoft outlining what comes in the bundle:
While all of these services are pretty cool, the one that might be the most valuable for you is probably the one you’ve never heard of – the Assure Support Plan.
Assure, essentially, gives you a year of direct 24-hour help-desk support from Microsoft. The support can be anything from help installing software all the way to one-on-one training on how do do something with your Surface. This is different from Microsoft Complete Warranty because it applies to anything related to Windows, not just Surface hardware issues.
Work and Play Bundle: Awesome, How Much?
Normally, these services would cost about $360, but they’re selling the bundle for just $149!
