Surface Pro 3 buyers on Microsoft Store website get a free year of NYT Crossword app

Microsoft has a new promotion for its Surface Pro 3 tablet, as folks who buy the device via the Microsoft Store website will get a year's worth of access to the recently released New York Times Crossword app for Windows 8.1.

The subscription, which normally costs $39.99 for a year, will also cover the Windows Phone version, in case you own a smartphone with that OS as well. The apps were both launched last week and allow users to access the daily puzzle and calendar archive for free for seven days. After that, you can still play the mini-puzzle for free, but access to the full daily crossword and archive requires a paid subscription.

If you are a fan of the NYT Crossword and have also been waiting to get a Surface Pro 3, this is the perfect promotion for you. The deal will expire on October 6. What do you think of this latest deal for the Surface Pro 3?
