Retailers Offer $25 Windows Store Gift Card w/ Purchase of Touch Screen PC

In an effort to boost app purchases in the windows store, Microsoft has teamed up with a number of retailers to offer a $25 Windows Store gift card with the purchase of a new touch screen PC or tablet.  Honestly I think it’s quite crazy that all new PCs aren’t already touchscreen, and even crazier that someone would buy a new PC that does not have a touchscreen.  Well, there is a reason the Surface was necessary.

Participating retailers include, Best Buy, Fry’s Electronics, Staples,, Office Depot, OfficeMax, Sam’s Club,, and of course the Microsoft Store.  It does not appear that this offer is available internationally.
