Sounds like a good deal? There are some notes in the fine print.

It also cannot be password protected and must include the original chargers/accessories.
Microsoft has 83 full-line and specialty stores across North America. We love visiting because everyone can play with the latest products. They are also home to some really good deals. Don’t worry if you don’t live near one. Microsoft plans to open new stores while also transitioning some of the specialty stores (usually kiosks) into permanent full-line stores. Unfortunately, no plans have been shared about Microsoft brick-and-mortar stores outside North America.
Head over to the Microsoft’s offers page and select the store nearest you for more details. Is this a good deal? Let us know in the comments!
