At its original price of $1,400, the Microsoft Surface Duo might not be the right fit for everyone. While this unique dual-screen device offers fantastic hardware design and a battery that can actually last all day long, the cost and the lack of a few popular features like wireless charging may lead some to dismiss an otherwise compelling look at the future of smartphones. Thanks to today's sale at Woot however, you can get your hands on one at its best price yet.

Woot's one-day sale on the Microsoft Surface Duo phone is bringing 128GB and 256GB models down to their best prices yet starting at just $600, saving you more than 50% off the original cost. You can even sign in with Amazon Prime for free shipping.

For just one day only, Woot is offering the Microsoft Surface Duo on sale with prices starting at just $599.99 (opens in new tab). Both the 128GB and 256GB capacity devices are on sale today, with 128GB devices beginning at $599.99 while the 256GB Surface Duo is on sale for $669.99. These devices are brand new, carrier-locked to AT&T, and at these prices, they surely won't last for long. Be sure to log in with your Amazon Prime account and Woot will ship your order for free.

Earlier this week we saw BuyDig drop the cost of the 128GB model to $699.99, but this deal saves you an extra $100 on that model and brings the 256GB version even lower as well.

One of the major detractors of the Microsoft Surface Duo when we reviewed the device back in September 2020 was its price. We also said it had a buggy OS which has been improved upon since its release. Now at its lowest price ever, it's time to buy this device if you've previously been interested.

Every order at Woot is charged an additional $6 for shipping, however you can skip that charge and have your order shipped for free by signing in with an Amazon Prime account before checking out. If you've never been a Prime member before, now's an excellent time to join with Prime Day coming up soon. You can start a free 30-day trial (opens in new tab) today to score free shipping at Woot and Amazon, along with access to the rest of Prime's perks like the Prime Video streaming service and all the exclusive members-only discounts that come not just on Prime Day but throughout the year.

  • This is really tempting, but I'm gonna keep holding out to see what Surface Duo 2 offers. Qi Charging, a much better camera, IP68 rating, and NFC are all requirements for my primary device, and $600 is still too steep for a secondary device.
  • Agreed. I can't attend $600 on a toy that I'll never put my SIM card into.
  • Honestly I thought this way too. I won a $500 gift card, plus I got 5% cash back on my Amazon credit card so I decided to buy the Duo unlocked. It cost me a grand total of $507 because I also got the Duo while it was on sale a couple of weeks ago on Amazon. And I'll tell you, I'm already having a hard time going back to single-screen phones as the multi-tasking capabilities of the Duo are second to none. Besides, I figure that Microsoft may offer a trade-in offer for the Duo 2 when you upgrade for the Duo (they've offered things like this before), so I decided it was time to take the plunge. I haven't regretted the decision at all. But yeah, I also don't use NFC, nor do I take professional-grade photos (though the Duo's camera isn't as terrible as some make it out to be). So if these are things you absolutely can't live without, you're better off waiting for the Duo 2.
  • Almost bought until I saw Locked to AT&T.. Sigh.
  • Same for me... Glad that I saw it...
  • Locked to AT&T is fallacy. Talk to Ms support
  • Dman, this is tempting. Especially that 256gb version. The wireless charging isn an issue, but better camera is a plus. Like many at this point, I will wait to see what the Duo tow offers and make a decision.
  • I just ordered one... got 30 days to try and return if I don't want it
  • I'm feeling a bit crazy... weather is nice so I got a lot of sun today. Also the pollen is affecting my allergies... that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!
  • Still too pricey.
  • I bought the Duo when it was first made available. It is a cool device but to be honest, I find that the majority of the time I use a single screen. Was it worth the price paid, NO. Is it worth $600, if you need a new phone perhaps so. Simply put, it is cool but if I had the option to do it again I would not. Not even at this price.
  • To each their own. I use mine in dual screen probably 90% of the time. I find it very useful when communicating with someone on one screen while I'm looking something up on the other. Or I like to keep music running on one side while doing something on the other. Or keeping my todo list open with email/calendar open on the other. I use it constantly. But that's just me. All that said, I won't recommend the Duo to others but personally I can't imagine ever going back to a single screen phone.
  • Same. Now that I'm using the Duo, I simply have a hard time using a single-screen device now. Yes, I do use the single-screen capability of the Duo, but when I get a notification, I can open it up and use the other screen without messing with my flow on what I was doing before. Plus reading a book on the Duo... I can't describe how amazing it is.
  • I do think I'd use it very much. Just need an unlocked one.
  • This price just screams Dou 2 is close at hand.
  • Has duo 2 development even been confirmed? I see a lot of people just assuming that it is but haven't seen a confirmation
  • Meanwhile I can buy a Surface Duo for the local price of 15990 Swedish crowns, that is 1920 US $. The price is including tax but still three times this offer. While I know and understand that Microsoft only targets companies here in Sweden for the Duo and companies do not hunt special offers, still companies are not stupid and the price difference are starts to be ridiculous.
