Our Prime Day Surface Pro 8 deal hack? Go to Best Buy

The best Prime Day Surface Pro 8 deal is not on Amazon. We've looked at all the current Surface Pro deals officially sanctioned as Amazon Prime Day deals, and the best one we've found – by some margin – is actually over on Best Buy. You can save $350 off Microsoft's latest tablet, down from $1,249.99 to just $899.99 (opens in new tab).

And the keyboard comes with it! It's a bugbear of ours that you usually have to buy the keyboard separately, so that makes it special already. However, when you compare this deal with the current best Surface Pro 8 deals over on Amazon, you can see just how good this bargain is. All the details are below, but the short version is that the Best Buy deal is on the i5 core model, that comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD. The two Amazon Prime Day deals are both on the i7 core model, one coming with 16GB RAM and 256GB SSD, and the other sporting 32GB RAM and 1TB SSD. Neither come with the keyboard. 

Of course, you may need that i7 power, and the higher specs, but they come at a price (even with the big Prime discounts applied).  But for our money, the majority of Surface Pro 8 users won't need that massive spec upgrade, and will far prefer the i5 with keyboard option. 

There are also some good deals on the Surface Pro 7, but if you read our Surface Pro 7 vs Surface Pro 8 comparison, we think you'll agree that the Surface Pro 8 is the way to go.
