Student Offer – Buy a Windows PC and get an Xbox 360 free (Update)

Starting today (May 18) students who buy a qualifying Windows PC worth at least $599 can get a 4 GB Xbox 360 console for free.  In Canada this offer is valid at Best Buy,, Future Shop, Staples and the Source.  For students south of the border in the US, you can take advantage of this offer starting on May 20 at Best Buy,, Fry’s Electronics and several other on-line retailers.  Remember that if you want to take advantage of the Windows 8 upgrade program discussed earlier this week (not yet confirmed by Microsoft), you may want to wait until June 2.

Update: I just received notification from Dell Canada that it is also jumping on this Xbox 360 bandwagon.  Dell has gone one step further in an attempt to entice those people who are not particularly interested in getting an Xbox, the other option being a $100 instant savings on select PC’s over $750.  Check out all of the details at the site below.
