Microsoft SP3 Bundle...really???

I bought this bundle in the Microsoft Store the day after the Surface Pro 3 was released. This did not screw over early adopters, as I am one.

Also, the manager was nice enough to stack the bundle bonus with my educational discount. I was super happy with my purchase.

I'd feel bad had I not ordered the i7 model and got the student discount. It also looks like the bundle is available with proof of purchase of a sp3 which would make the bundle "backwards compatible".

But not if you bought everything already......:(

Eh, it would have saved me $50 tops.

It's really true of any technology purchase you make, TV, computer, game console, etc... once you pick something and buy it, DON'T look back.

I wouldn't agree with the "don't look back" philosophy. I bought a full laptop a while ago while it was on sale at Best Buy, and just about 2 weeks later the sale price dropped by another $35.00. I had watched it on their website and I was able to get the difference back as a refund. The key is to keep an eye on it during the time when it might actually make a difference. As for the bundle above, it would have cost me more than I spent to get mine anyway.

I feel bad , Canada MS store bundle are even better. When you buy SP3 + office 360,you can get $150 off, let say office 360 price is $80, so normally you get office free plus $70 discount , all these can have students 10% discount! stupid MS get more pay less, who would do that, only MS.

Agreed. While you shouldn't look back, as it will often lead to regret, you should still keep your eyes open. I ordered a couple of kitchen knives about a year ago, and I was pleased, I got a great deal and managed to get them for 300 pounds, but had to wait for restock. Just after receiving them I was dismayed to see an extra 50 pounds off in a sale, so I emailed them and offered them a choice of either having me return them, and then re-buy at the cheaper price, or simply give me a partial refund to cover the saving :)

If you're waiting for something to go on sale, you'll never get it.
It was worth it to you at the time, so how did you get screwed?
