    Discounts at the Microsoft Store - games, software, clothes, etc.

    Really the weakest part of the benefits package. 10% in-store products, a once-a-year "Golden Ticket" during the holidays for 25% off one transaction on first-party products, and a discount system that's got a lot of partners (like auto financing and attraction tickets) but that never had anything worth writing home about.

    this is the ridiculous part, we get Xbox cheaper through some internet deals than employee discount

    Employee discount is good, 1175$ per year updated every July 1st. Covers software, MS swag, hardware like Xbox, mice, Surface laptops, books, and Pro.

    great discounts for first party xbox game, xbox live and O365 subscription. Not much for Surface given very thin margins

    Wish we had better discounts on hardware

    Software discounts are great. Xbox Live and Office are very cheap. Hardware isn't much of a discount. Retail employees receive 10% purchases in store.

    The right to purchase company stock at a discount
