Microsoft Stores offering 100 Xbox Music Pass with first 100 Surface purchases

first_imgWhenever Apple launches a new product you can guarantee that Apple Stores will have lines forming outside them on the morning of release. Sometimes it’s even days before. Microsoft on the other hand can’t really guarantee that will happen outside Microsoft Stores this morning for the Surface launch, but it is making a tempting offer in order to encourage people to line up.If you are one of the first 100 people to line up outside a Microsoft Store this morning and then go on to make a Surface purchase, Microsoft will reward you with a year of Xbox Music Pass. The cash value of this offer is $99.90.Xbox Music Pass is set to offer unlimited music whever you go across a range of Microsoft devices including your smartphone, tablet, TV, and PC. You can stream or download music, use it as a discovery tool, and it also keeps all your music in sync across your devices.With the online pre-orders for Surface running out quickly (there was only 64GB models left last time I looked), visiting a Microsoft Store is probably the best chance of securing one today. And now you have an added incentive to get there early. I also suspect Microsoft’s PR department will be taking full advantage of any lines that do appear and filming the whole thing. You have been warned.via The Seattle Timeslast_img
