Microsoft support is really quite bad.

I asked about getting this 30% off after I have already pre-ordered a surface and type cover in July when I saw that students got the 10% off.

Just wanted to see if they could give me the 30% off as well or give me some free gifts/vouchers etc to compensate.

After all, this promotion punishes those who ordered early since the product hasn't been shipped out yet but all I got was an email to tell me that there is nothing they could do for me.

Just a little disappointed with the sales team and PR people.

Is the student offer still available? If yes, maybe order another one and cancel your first order? I know this is a bit of an obvious suggestion. If you already did so, just ignore this

In a way, yes, as long as a similar surface tablet model is also sold on that country you wish to claim warranty

Can try to contact the call centre:
Microsoft Sales and Customer Support
Singapore Store: 1-800-818-5224

The front page still says get 30% off for student price. They should honour it.
I saw the super fine print that the discount ends 13/08/2014.
But the banner big big still put online.

You can only once with the student offer, if you order earlier, means you already used up your chance to purchase another sets something which is similar to student price of apple.

Guys. Anyone wishing full body protection? Read that while the screen don't scratch, the body might.

My MacBook Pro also scratched a bit lol

I saw a number of transparent ones on Amazon. However, if it works like Zagg, it makes the surface shiny and it may get "yellow" after a while.

Trying to search for stickers instead but cannot find lol

Difficult to get full protection as there is the kick stand to stand in the way.

True if you are referring to drop protection. But if you are looking for anti scratch protection, there are options out there but need to order from overseas.
