Looking for a device upgrade before the new school term starts? Microsoft Singapore is having a back to school school sale with savings across Surface Pro and Laptop devices, plus extra discounts on Microsoft bundles and accessories.

To help make saving straightforward, Microsoft is giving students, parents and teachers 10% off Surface Pro tablets and Surface Laptop devices. And beyond that, there are also additional savings and bundle deals – such as a free keyboard when buying a Surface Pro 9, or discounts on a new laptop. Even better, the student 10% off stacks with the other Microsoft deals already available, giving you even bigger discounts that can add up to 20% or more off.

You can also get 20% off Microsoft software and accessories, if you purchase them at the same time as a new Surface Pro or Laptop. This includes Microsoft 365, Microsoft Complete Care, and options such as touchscreen pens, mice and docks.

While there are many configurations of the Surface Pro and Laptop to choose from, certain models stand out from the rest, which we have highlighted below. And let’s not forget about using that 10% education discount on the Surface Laptop Studio 2 – a high-end creative workstation that will suit even demanding university needs.

If you’re unsure about the education discount eligibility criteria , the Microsoft phone or online chat representatives are ready to help… and can sometimes offer exclusive discounts above and beyond what you'll find on site.

The deal price here includes 10% off for students, parents and teachers, and is compared to buying the Surface Pro 9 and SG$293 keyboard at full price. Handily, you can also upgrade and get the keyboard with the Slim Pen 2, and get that SG$293 discount applied to the full purchase price. We recommend the Core i5/16GB Surface Pro 9 configuration, but there’s also a cheaper 8GB RAM variant, or you can upgrade to the i7 CPU. In all cases, you get a powerful 2-in-1 computer that weighs under 1kg yet has up to 15.5 hours battery life.

The excellent Surface Laptop 5 currently is 10% off for everyone, but students, parents and teachers can score an extra 10% discount by confirming eligibility, which should bring the price down to just SG$2,024.19. For school use, the touchscreen-equipped 13.5-inch Surface Laptop is ideal, and our pick is the i7 / 16GB RAM variant. For those who need a bigger screen, the 15-inch Surface Laptop is also on sale, with potential education savings of up to SG$874.75.
