Microsoft Announces Windows 8 Upgrade Offer
Consumers who buy an eligible Windows 7-based PC may purchase an upgrade to Windows 8.
On Friday Microsoft Corp. announced the availability of the Windows Upgrade Offer for consumers purchasing a new Windows 7 PC. The Windows Upgrade Offer provides consumers who buy an eligible Windows 7 PC the option to purchase a downloadable upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for an estimated retail price of just 14.99 Euro during the time of the promotion, which will be redeemable when Windows 8 is generally available. The Windows Upgrade Offer is just the first of many consumer offers that will roll out in conjunction with the general availability of Windows 8.

Tami Reller, chief marketing officer and chief financial officer of Windows at Microsoft said “The Windows Upgrade Offer gives people the flexibility to purchase the new Windows PC they need today, with the knowledge they can easily upgrade to Windows 8 when it’s available.”

This program begins tomorrow in 131 markets including the U.S. and Canada, UK and Ireland, and is available for consumers buying new Windows 7 PCs that are preinstalled with Windows 7 Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate and include a matching and valid OEM Certificate of Authenticity. The Windows 7 PC must be purchased new during the eligibility period of June 2, 2012, - Jan. 31, 2013 and redeemed before the program expiration at the end of February 2013. Consumers who register for the Windows Upgrade Offer will be able to download Windows 8 starting the day it’s made generally available. The upgrade can be installed on any eligible and compatible Windows PC and comes with 90 days of support from Microsoft.
