The Surface savings continue to roll through the Microsoft Store. Several Surface devices and bundles went on sale last month. Many of these sales were set to end on August 10, but the Surface deals page (opens in new tab) lists multiple offers that run into September. The Surface Pro 6 + Type Cover bundle is available for up to $330 off depending on the variant that you choose, and there are also sales on the Surface Laptop 2 and Surface Go. Many of the sales end on September 2, 2019, so you'll need to act quickly to get the best deals.
The Surface Pro 6 + Type Cover bundle is one of the best deals currently listed and it is one of the deals that ends on Labor Day. You can save $330 on the Intel Core i5 version with 256GB of storage (opens in new tab). That brings the price down to $999 compared to its standard price of $1,329. You can also save $260 on the cheaper Intel Core i5 variant (opens in new tab) with 128GB of storage, bringing the price down to $799.
The most affordable Surface on sale is the Surface Go + Platinum Type Cover bundle (opens in new tab). It's $80 off, bringing the price down to $519. There are also Essentials bundles available on the Surface Laptop 2 (opens in new tab) (up to $50 off), Surface Studio 2 (opens in new tab) (up to $100 off), and Surface Pro 6 (opens in new tab) (up to $80 off).

The 2-in-1 refined as only Microsoft can
The blueprint device for the 2-in-1 category, the Surface Pro 6 is a high-end laptop stuffed into the body of a tablet. Toss in digital pen support and an optional keyboard, and you have quite the portable computer.
Our favorite Surface accessories from Microsoft
Every one of these valuable Surface accessories is Windows Central Approved and guaranteed to please.
Surface Precision Mouse (opens in new tab) ($77 at Amazon)
The Surface Precision Mouse is not only one of favorite Surface accessories, it's one of our favorite mice for any PC. It's packed with valuable features and customizable buttons. Its scrolling and tracking are seamless and spot-on. And it's rechargeable so you never have to buy new batteries for it.
Surface Pen (opens in new tab) (From $72 at Amazon)
Every Surface owner needs this Pen. Period. It supports 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, tilt support for shading density, and enjoys supremely low latency. When paired with a Surface PC, the potential is endless. And it comes in a bunch of cool colors.
Surface Dock (opens in new tab) ($136 at Amazon)
With two Mini DisplayPorts, four USB-A 3.0 ports, an Ethernet port, and a 3.5mm audio jack, this dock gives you the ports you need to stay connected to all your favorite devices. Plus, it easily turns your Surface into a desktop power hub. We highly recommend it.

Much better deal now with the type cover. I still can't help feel why they can't add a free stylus for the 256 Gb 999 model. The price feels just a bit better now with type cover, but I think it would be much more tempting to add a free stylus or 75% off a Surface dock. Not sure if its worth upgrading from the same specs (exept for the processor) from the Surface pro 5 (2017), which I currently own. I feel the right price would be 400 for the 128 Gb and 500 for the 256 Gb, just because the stylus and/or surface hub is not part of the package (which (new) is another 100 to 200 dollars above the current offered price!).
I'm not sure what it costs Microsoft to make a Surface Pen. The company seems to want to keep prices down so they don't include it. I think a lot of users don't use it so maybe saving $50 or more to not have it included is a good thing overall. If you like the Surface Pro 5th Gen, there are some great deals on it right now on the same Surface deals page. If someone you know is looking and you'd recommend it, then I'd point it out to them.
I'd like to see Microsoft permanently add the keyboard when someone purchases any of the Surface 2 in 1 devices (currently the Go & Pro). There may be instances where a purchaser is upgrading from an older Surface and wishes to hold onto an existing keyboard. In that case, maybe offer a "delete option" to shave a percentage of the purchase price to reflect not taking a keyboard.
