Microsoft continues its marketing efforts aimed at Windows 8, this time with a gentler attempt: the company is reminding everyone that the new OS is available for only $14.99 (€11.5) till the end of January.There’s a catch, however: the deal is only available for those who purchased a Windows 7 PC after June 2, with registered customers to receive a promo code for the upgrade.
“If you received or purchased a Windows 7 PC over the holidays, you can take advantage of this offer and register to purchase the upgrade. Windows 8 has a lot to offer when upgrading from Windows 7 including a beautiful new Start screen with live tiles, plus the familiar desktop and faster startup and longer battery life!” Microsoft said in a blog post.
The $14.99 upgrade offer is only aimed at Windows 7 computers purchased between June 2, 2012 and January 31, 2013. Promo codes can be redeemed until February 28, 2013.
