Students: Buy a Windows 7 PC Over $699, Get a Free Xbox 360

Feel like studying isn’t really essential to the college process? Well, neither does Microsoft! Through the Microsoft Store, Best Buy,, and, students can now obtain a free Xbox 360 4GB console when they purchase a PC over $699 at one of the aforementioned participating retailers, gaining two gaming platforms for the price of one, successfully disrupting their college career.

If purchasing the PC through an online retailer, the student simply supplies their .edu email address. If said student does not have a .edu email address or prefers to purchase the PC from a walk-in store, said student simply needs to show their student ID.

The offer is available in the United States starting May 22 and end dates vary by retailer, so Microsoft suggests if one were to take advantage of the deal, to do it sooner rather than later. Those details you’re wondering about? Like how one proceeds to actually get the Xbox 360 after purchasing the computer? Microsoft suggests you see the individual retailer where the computer was purchased for details.
