Microsoft brings back free Xbox 360 with PC purchase promotion Just like in years past, Microsoft has brought the promotion back in time for the summer.
Students in the U.S. who purchase a Windows-based PC for $699 or more at certain retailers will receive a free 4GB Xbox 360 gaming console.

The promotion starts on Sunday in America and on May 18th in Canada. Canadian students get a slightly better deal, only needing to buy a $599 PC.

American retailers included in the deal are Best Buy, Dell.com, Fry's Electronics, HPDirect.com, Microsoft Stores, and NewEgg.com. For Canada, Best Buy, Dell.ca, Future Shop, Staples and The Source are included companies.

In addition, if you wait until June 2nd, you can purchase the PC, get a $15 upgrade to the new Windows 8 and get the free console to take best advantage of all of Microsoft's deals.
