30% is student offer I think, and the way Microsoft counts the discount its actually only 28%. Well better than nothing I guess.

$183 take 10% off (student offer) = $164.70
$164.70 take another 20% off = $131.76
Where is this discount? Got link

Thanks. It is the 6% that is capped at $60. Anything beyond $1k online spend will earn 0.5%.

BTW, is direct credit card at MS considered online spend? Or need to charge to PayPal to consider online spend. Problem is PayPal post date may be a few days difference. If not in time, Will also affect my 360 account's interests.

If not, Will play safe and charge $500 first and just earn $30 rebate from the surface.

Hi there!

I'm afraid it depends on how Masterpass & Paypal codes their transactions with us. When you charge your card with MS & Paypal, the merchant decides whether to code it as an online transaction or not

If you've done a purchase with MS before using one of your OCBC credit cards, we can always do a check for you.

Shereen, thanks for popping by and attempting to answer the question. Unfortunately I have not purchased anything from MS using OCBC before. Will likely use PayPal since PayPal will definitely qualify for the online spend criteria.

Today when the courier came to collect my faulty type cover, he commented that Microsoft's products / Jabil's repairs are really terrible, he witnessed a sharp increase in number of repairs recently.
Microsoft needs to step up their game. If this type cover that I'm sending in for repair (for the 3rd time) comes back faulty, guess who's not buying Microsoft hardware in the future.

Student Discount only for ITE/JC/Uni right? Seems like no way to bypass this right?
