With the 8th day of 12 Days Of Deals from Microsoft, we get another Surface 3 deal ahead of the holidays, which this time bundles the 10.8-inch Surface 3 tablet with a $75 voucher from Microsoft. The Microsoft deal is available in both United States and Canada:
The $75 voucher with the Surface 3 deal is available with all Surface 3 tablets, ranging from the 64GB Wi-Fi version, to the 128GB 4G LTE version. The voucher can only be used upon check out when the value of a purchase is $75 or higher though, so it can be used for some accessories like a Surface keyboard cover or Surface Pen.
Microsoft Surface 3 is a 10.8-inch Windows 10 tablet with built-in kickstand, weighs just 622 grams/1.37 pounds, and the ClearType screen has a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1280 with a 3:2 aspect ratio.

Wi-Fi connectivity is good too with complete dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support, as well as Bluetooth 4.0, while the Surface 3 has a 10 hour battery life, which is good. Included with all Surface 3 purchases, and not just today’s Surface 3 deal, is a one-year subscription to Office 365 Personal.
The Surface 3 deal ends at 12PM PT, when this sale will be replaced by a tablet and laptop deal on selected Dell computers with Windows 10.
