All Microsoft Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2018
Cool. Shows as available to me and I've had this before. Gonna bag it now incase its a mistake for previous users. Thanks op.
I guess it depends on the user. I have less local storage now than ever before. My phone, Surface, and desktop all have 128GB of storage. All three have loads of space left because pretty much everything is stored in the cloud.
I’ve got a few Surface Pros - love the devices. Gven how quickly and easily such a tiny hard drive can be gobbled up, and how cheap SSDs are this year, I find it criminal manufacturers still offer this small amount. Absolute min in my opinion should be 256GB at the same price. I know you can add an Micro SD card but throughputs are nowhere near. The norm 5 years ago for capacity for 500GB (spinners obviously) and I often feel like we’ve gone backwards as not everyone likes to store there stuff in cloud storage as an alternative. I guess with more recently you can get 1TB Surface Pros which is much better.
Will JL price match?! :D
I've got the original Surface Pro with a USA keyboard. Never been a big deal for me. I could have blank keys and type just fine. Still, not sure it's worth it at this price. Why is that a problem?
I sound like a broken record...128GB SSD in 2018...
You pretty much just described console gamers when voice chat is enabled and they arent in a party. My experience is most people will be in chat parties and may invite you, there qre toxic players but there are also nice players.
It's not the maps that are the difference between versions, it's the team operators. Everyone gets the maps. If you want newer soldiers/cops, you unlock by grinding through or pay. Same goes for the advanced customisation of player skins.
Is there not point in buying the other editions like gold? I assume standard has all the maps?
Folks what's the Xbox community like on this. I've heard it can be quite toxic in general with team shooting and the likes. Went to pick it up a few times but that kind of talk puts me off
Have this on PC, compare YouTube videos between the two, completely different game.
But what apps are on windows which utilise touch which browser ? For example how does it compare to an android iOS apps for general stuff calendar, one note, does it open desktop versions or mobile versions
Depends for me the specs are not good for price and no keyboard I understand why people like them they do look and feel good but as above
Hmm, well for the build quality, windows hello, seems very good.
People view it as incomplete without the keyboard and pen, and therefore consider the full price with all three items far too expensive. I somewhat agree, however as a tablet, without those things it's amazing. I have a surface 3 that I plan to eventually upgrade to this with, but I went to the trouble of getting the keyboard and pen for that planning for it to be a laptop replacement. Never use them. The keyboards have no travel so are awkward to type on, and the pens are great if you're an artist which I'm not. So consider this a windows tablet and it's the best 10" Windows tablet you can buy. The price is pretty good (most people probably only need the 4gb version if they're just doing web browsing and ms office) The storage is irrelevant with these as you can add a microsd to them (I have a 256GB one in my Surface 3). I'm absolutely getting this, but I'm patient enough to wait for a bigger discount than £10. Heat though.
Not seen it cheaper elsewhere in the UK so have some heat.
Im still struggling with the processing payment part. I used the fly vpn and connectify. But no luck. Can someone maybe help me out with the address, maybe thats where i am going wrong. Funny thing is MS took a small payment from the revolut card. Like 80p. But cant process my card for actually buying a game.
I kept getting the same error at first, tried multiple VPNs including top rated ones and still no luck. I highly recommend trying Fly VPN & Connectify. The whole process is in the description. Worked first time for me and the VPN is free for life (3 connections per day which is more than enough)
Tried purchasing from Argentina a few weeks ago, but kept getting a "something went wrong" error at the payment stage :(
Can't see it as a risk personally, people have been using overseas markets since 2013 and I haven't read that anyone has been banned. The Ukrainian developers that are making this probably know full well that lots of people turn to the Argentina store to buy games they wouldn't even consider on their own store due to the high price. It's not so much here's a good deal for the arginine gamers and more dangling a carrot too the millions of us that turn to the south American markets to get a better price.
If that's the case the price in Argentinian Peso's must have changed (a lot of the time the price jumps for pre-orders in Argentina), because you're charged in Peso's, so you only know the amount you're going to be charged in GBP on the day you're charged. However, if you can't change GBP to Peso's on Revolut (I've done it with Turkish Lira, but not checked Argentinian Pesos) then there's not a lot you can do about it.
It was a joke based on the fact it's on offer almost every week, that was all
Only Xbox sadly, won't work on PC.
I guarantee that more than one person did when it was first released on Xbox One... :/
Imagine being the one person who bought this at full price.......
Not the cheapest it’s been, but any reduction on this game is a bargain. Hot
I've had a similar experience, used to love my surface and recommended them to many people but never again.
It's not the same thinf, you don't get the name, the quality huild (Inspiron is bad compared to this), the nice screen, the better battery life and also the fact that it works as a tablet with great pen support. :)
Fair enough, lol. BUT, with wayyyyyy cheaper 'alternatives' already out there for arguably the same thing, etc?. Like eg: Dell Inspiron 5000 13.3-Inch 2in1 Convertible Touchscreen Laptop - (Silver) (Intel i5-7200U, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, Windows 10). (For around half the Surface Pro price). And/or, eg: Dell Latitude 12 2in1 i5-7Y54, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 2880x1920. (And again, for around half the Surface Pro price too). Etc etc etc ... So, with them things in mind, do these Surface 'Devices', still represent economical value for the money they are demanding? (Those eye watering Surface prices, reminds me a wee bit of some of the Apple Device prices too ... lol). Ps. My previous/earlier Surface price comparisons above, was a genuine query by the way?. (I wasn't b!tching off for the sake of it ... ). I would genuinely like to know, etc?, thanx. :-)
Didn't Apple use a similar trick to get out of replacing iPhone batteries under warranty?
I had a similar experience with my screen on SP3. I think it's ridiculous that if there is any cosmetic damage in the form of wear and tear it voids warranty. It's a joke and the should not be able to get away with it. If it is proven that the damage caused the disrepair then fair enough, but if not, it's a joke.
Yeah. The Lira can be used any time once converted. I've pre-ordered Red Dead Redemption 2, Tomb Raider and a few others using Revolut
Ye you can
So could just exchange £200 to lira now and wait for future sales?
It's like an authorisation charge, totally normal and will normally be refunded, just taken to prove its a valid payment method
I got "We were unable to process your payment" and still got charged... What address are you using?
A lot of other people post pre-order items as well.
I was thinking about getting one of these, but the price jump for pen and keyboard cover put me off. Looking through reviews I found this one that goes in depth and shows how the tablet handles eveyday stuff. It's a good watch to see it in normal use rather than review use. If this is normal price though, as someone mentioned, i dont know how it can be posted as a deal.
Fake news :p
For people thinking about getting this but unsure about the 4gb ram model, check this out - an actual review of the 4gb version as opposed to reviewers just slating it and telling you to buy the 8gb version. Looks like a great value option as browsing and video watching product.
Au contrasts, I saw a review of the 8gb model that revealed that in fact everything they showed was the 4gb model. Naughty
Season 2 is most likely not connected to the others.
It's more of a prequel than a Season 2. Season 2 will be out later and will hopefully be the full 5 episode version we would be expecting. This is 3 episodes and as far as I'm aware explains some of how we got to Season 1. If you like the first one I expect you'd still enjoy this prequel.
What you do with achievements?
Of course other people will disagree with my opinion but tbh I only played it to get the achievements which are easy.
OK mate - i'm not gonna be drawn into an argument with some random on the Internet My neck is fully wound in but thanks for your concern (y)
Alright mate wind your neck in it’s not the end of the world, usually a good title is all you need. If it was me I’d have put the Turkish price in as opposed to the uk price which is nearly 2.5x more expensive! Each to their own I suppose, but you don’t need to get snarky just because someone didn’t read your post
Because not everyone who has Gold has access to that price - stop making excuses for your inability to read a whole post! (lol)
Well why not feature that as the ‘cheapest’ price then? By my maths i say that £3.07 is less than £8!
Is there a free vpn we can use with our phones ? Thanks
some people like getting official cables therefore this can help them
You need an active one to support HDR, 4k60 etc. but yes, this is a ridiculous price.
Amazon Basics have a range of these (with different length cables) for a fraction of the price.
If anyone is looking for one which does 4k at 60hz this one fits the bill. ICZI Active Mini DisplayPort to HDMI 2.0 Adapter with Dust Cap, Supports Displays up to 4K / UHD / 3840x2160@60Hz, Black https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B071X692K7/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_eJNCBbW5GKME3 £11.99
I bought a generic one from eBay for a couple of pounds on eBay for my surfacebook. Works fine
Not at all Caskey -your post was very agreeable (highfive)
I would even help you. Honestly, try to persist with it because it's really worth the savings, especially big time just now with the Turkey region Don't think I was trying to sound offensive in my last post btw in case you thought that. (y)
Just cause you can't get it to work at the moment doesn't mean it doesn't work for everyone else and immediately cold. Loads have got it working, especially on AVF where I usually post trying to help people do it and help with any problems. You should try your best to follow how to do it with the VPN and Connectify etc. The savings really are worth the effort in the end. (nerd)
No problem with needing VPN-requests Turkish address-still cold
Here's hoping - Would like to know when the aforementioned burnout paradise remastered is making an appearance as well...
Apparently before September. So sometimen this month.
Don't forget this is coming to EA access at some point - Just in case someone who subscribes wasn't aware (nerd)
£7 for an i3 laptop, I don't know why they are bothering with postage and overhead of processing and everything.
Yea even there own stuff, a surface pro 4 m3 £70 working. No way! Good deal if you have what ever they will give the 400 for, but looking at the costs they would want the keys to your veyron!!
Launch day 60GB PS3...£8... (shock)
Had a old mint condition Linx 10" Tablet...…..Trade in offered...….£2 Don't think I will bother.
They’ll give £90 for a Nintendo switch (lol)
I contacted Xbox via their customer services number as this deal wasn't showing on my xbox (my Live has ran out) and the advisor told me that he can't honour the deal because his system would not allow him to amend the price of the subscription from his end. He stated the best way to do it is to go through the console once the deal is advertised.... Anyone figured out a way to get this deal if it's not showing up on your xbox?! £39.99 for the year is a bit steep...
I’ve been a gold subscriber for a few years now and am a day away from my membership expiring (have turned auto renew off) - any idea why I’m not seeing this? and does anyone know where to get a year for a better price than £40 (without needing to resort to VPN jiggery pokery)?
I’m having exactly the same problem. I’ll probably try and contact Xbox Support and see if they can honour the price shown.
so this shows for me, and when I click that link it takes me to a full page detailing the offer, but when I click on the 'renew now' link on THAT page, it takes me to a page where the drop-down menu only shows a 39.99 option for 12 months. If I select that, the white store pop-up charges looks like it is going to charge me 39.99 too. If I buy, will the reduction be taken off subsequently?!
Mines due to expire but no show for me 😫
cdkeys has first time user one month subs for £1.99 ;) plus I've just signed up as xbox has a promo on right now 50% off 3 months (£11.99) for first time users too, just a heads up
Ha yeah maybe you have me there. Justice league for free??? heat ;)
I can see where you are coming from but the analogy above is wrong. No one is actually 'sending' you anything... this is the same as somebody posting "Justice League in HD now on Sky Cinema" Its a heads up... for the record, i think game pass is amazing but if you follow them o. Twitter it will suit your needs.
I get what you are saying but it’s semantics. it doesn’t matter if you put the word free or not before GWG.... some would buy gwg for the online aspect without the games (most) so to them the games are a free bonus that comes with the online gaming pass they bought... i dont play online but for under £30 - the price I regularly play for 1 game - 48 games and increased discounts on other games and DLC - seems a no brainer. So whilst I don’t see the games as free - I pay under £30 a year for access to them - (plus and GWG) I see that as I good deal. i understand how online gamer see the added games as a “free” bonus onto a service they get regularly. Ill use this example.... if I pay sky TV for a package so I can access their TV - if they monthly sent me 4 Blu rays I would see them as freebies. I’m not paying sky for the Blu rays I want TV it’s just a nice freebie when I get them once a month. It all boils down to why you pay for plus or gold... i find it stagering every month that people cancel gold or plus because they don’t like that months offering. With deals for year subs regularly under £30 - these people must really be on the breadline to mess about monthly because they game they wanted wasn’t added. Those that just don’t want or need it - different story. Just can’t see how people are so on and off on the offerings.
Yeah you could.... for sure.... but What about rest of the games and the big ones like Forza Horizon 4. You can pick up yearly deals cheap. I hated the idea to start and then Microsoft went and made it good
