Microsoft Launches New “Chip In” Program To Help Students Purchase A New Windows PC

Windows ChipIn

Microsoft today launched new a program to help students and parents purchase a new Windows PC or Tablet for school. The new Windows Chip In website allows students with a valid .edu email address to crowd source funds to help them purchase a PC.

They can choose from the Microsoft Store catalogue of devices with Microsoft Windows will “chip in” the first 10% of the cost of the PC via a discount to the overall cost. When a student fully funds the cost of a PC, Microsoft will also include  Office 365 University at no additional charge as well. How cool is that? As an icing on the cake, students wont have to pay shipping, handling or tax too..

Here’s how it works:

  • Go to http://www.windowschipin.com/.
  • Pick out the PC you’d like to help get funding for.
  • Create an account.
  • Ask friends and family to “chip In”.
  • Fund and receive a code for a brand new Windows PC or Tablet + Office 365 University.

This campaign will run from June 4th through September 1st, 2013. Read more from the link below.
