You can now pre-order Microsoft's Surface Pen in new colors

You won't pay any interest, and will just be charged the normal price of the Surface hardware providing you opt for a 24-month payment plan - any longer than a two-year contract and interest kicks in at 19.99% April for subsequent years. The program covers the Surface Laptop, Surface Pro, Surface Book, and Surface Studio for individual customers. The upgrade, meanwhile, is sold to you at full price under the same 24 month interest-free finance agreement as the original - meaning you're nearly certain to save money by selling your original Surface on the second-hand market then buying the new device on a fresh contract compared to taking Microsoft up on its upgrade offer.

The updated Surface Pen, which was revealed alongside the new Surface Pro at Microsoft's Shanghai event in May, is a solid improvement over its predecessor.

Surface Plus lets buyers get a Surface device with no interest and 24-months to pay.

Consumers are only offered a 24-month payment plan, which comes with 0% April, the post said.

Microsoft has launched an upgrade program for Surface devices. The only requirement for the upgrade is that customers will have to give back their 18-month-old Surface device, which should be in good condition, and agree to a new 24-month payment plan for the new Surface device. Buyers also get service and support at microsoft Stores and a 30-day return policy.
