Beginning today at 9:00 a.m. PT, we're excited to announce the availability of Surface Plus and Surface Plus for Business; flexible financing options created to help more people and businesses take advantage of the power of Surface. Once you buy a Surface device with Surface Plus, you can choose to upgrade to the latest Surface device after 1 and a half years of usage. Surface Plus has been launched exclusively for the United States and it will be available starting today.

Device Protection: Surface Plus for Business offers peace of mind with the Microsoft Complete for Business extended service plan with accidental damage protection. Corporate customers using the plan can buy Surface devices for employees and pay in 18, 24, or 30-month installments.

Surface Plus members also get what Microsoft calls "best in class" service and support from Microsoft Stores.

You can enroll in Surface Plus from Microsoft's online store, or at the physical Microsoft Stores. Included in the perks are 10% off future Microsoft products, a 30-day return policy, a free year of in-store support, and, best of all, the option to upgrade to a newer Surface model after 18 months.

Microsoft's new Surface Plus program takes a page from the wireless carriers' playbook: it allows consumers to get a Surface Laptop, Surface Pro (2017), Surface Book, or Surface Studio with interest-free payments spread over two years.
