Students who buy a new PC can get a free Xbox 360

first_imgGoing back to college after a nice summer break can be a bit of a bummer but at least students get all the best deals. Now, thanks to a Microsoft promotion, if you buy a brand new PC and you’re a student, you get a free Xbox 360Best Price at Amazon. See, going back to school isn’t all bad!Not only will you get a free Xbox 360, you’ll also get a deal that means when Windows 8 comes out this October, you can upgrade to it for $14.99.

In this case you have to spend at least $699 to qualify for the free console. Several companies are offering the deal including Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Best Buy, Newegg and the Microsoft store itself so at least there are some options.This deal lasts until September 8, so be quick if you fancy a new PC and console.
