The 2020 Prime Day deals are almost here after a months-long wait following the sale’s postponement in the summer. This big annual blowout is the best time other than Black Friday to score screaming deals on just about everything Amazon sells, but we’re always the most excited about the tech bargains, and we’re expecting some hot Prime Day Microsoft Surface deals this year. If you’re looking to get your mitts on one of the most innovative Windows machines that money can buy, then read on to find out how you can score this Prime Day.
Today’s best Prime Day Microsoft Surface deals
The Prime Day Microsoft Surface deals aren’t here yet, but if you’re already hankering for one of these great Windows PCs and you don’t want to wait (or you’re simply not a Prime member but you stumbled upon this page on your hunt for Surface deals), we’ve got some bargains here that you can score right now.

When are the best Prime Day Microsoft Surface deals?
Amazon has not yet announced the official dates for Prime Day, but we know it’s coming sometime in the first half of October. It’s no secret that the bulk of the Prime Day Microsoft Surface deals are going to roll out during the official hours of the sale; that said, you can always count on Amazon to pepper the week before Prime Day with a few Lightning Deals.
Don’t pass up these early Prime Day Microsoft Surface deals if you see one you like, as they’re almost always just as good as the discounts you’ll find during Prime Day itself and it’s not a sure thing that you’ll see it again. If by some chance you do see the one you bought on sale for a second time and it’s cheaper, you can simply return the one you purchased and grab it again at that lower Prime Day sale price. We also don’t recommend waiting for Black Friday deals, either, and for the same reasons.
What Prime Day Microsoft Surface deals to expect
The current devices in Microsoft’s Surface lineup include the Surface tablets (namely the Surface Pro 7, Surface Pro X, and Surface Go 2), the Surface Laptop 3, the Surface Book 3, the Surface Studio 2, and the new Surface Duo. The Surface Pro and Go models are tablets that make for great 2-in-1s when used with a Type Cover Keyboard, while the Surface Laptop, true to its name, is a more traditional laptop PC.
The Surface Book is somewhere in-between, with a touch display that detaches completely from its laptop keyboard housing for tablet use. The new Surface Duo is a unique folding tablet that opens like a book and sports two 5.6-inch screens, and the Surface Studio is Microsoft’s sleek all-in-one desktop PC offering (akin to the Apple iMac). These current-gen devices — the Surface Pro 7, Pro X, Go 2, Laptop 3, Book 3, Studio 2, and Duo — will likely receive most of the attention for this year’s Prime Day Microsoft Surface deals, although the Surface Duo might be too new yet to see any discounts.
We’ve already seen some solid price cuts this year on these latest Surface Book, Laptop, and Pro devices (for the Surface Pro tablets, in particular, the best deals are usually in the form of Type Cover Keyboard bundles), but don’t overlook last-gen units like the original Surface Go, Surface Book 2, and Surface Pro 6, which are still fine picks if you can find a good deal on them. Older tech often gets treated to the biggest discounts during sales like Prime Day, and you may not see it again once that old stock sells out.
Should I shop on Prime Day or wait until Black Friday?
Black Friday is only a month apart from Prime Day this year. This means that if a certain Microsoft Surface device runs out of stock, it might not see a significant restock in time for Black Friday or even Cyber Monday. Shopping at the end of November might also be risky because Black Friday’s heavy demand might result in hefty shipping delays. You might not even get your goods in time for Christmas. Prices will also stay pretty uniform for the two events, so if you’re holding off for a bigger discount during Black Friday — don’t. Take advantage of these Prime Day Microsoft Surface deals before your favorite goes out of stock.
Are any Prime Day Microsoft Surface deals too good to be true?
As with any big purchase, always make sure to do your research before you buy your new laptop. There are going to be a lot of deals come Prime Day and you don’t want to end up with a Microsoft Surface device that’s not to your liking. Make sure to read a few reviews and check the ratings before deciding on your new device — this will save you a lot of disappointment. Also, make sure what your new device is offering, sometimes gadgets with bigger discounts have fewer features. Know what you’re getting yourself into before spending your hard-earned money.
