Microsoft Surface at Grand Opening Store Yorkdale

Last friday was the grand opening event of the Microsoft Store at Yorkdale. I'm always in doors and I have no sense of time, day or weather. Naturally I didn't dress warm enough to line up at 6am in the morning. Lineups were suppose to start at 6am but for some reason there was an insane amount of people there. Luckily Microsoft's line up was on the inside of Yorkdale where it was nice and toasty. I'll let Connie tell the story about all the craziness at the grand opening of Yorkdale's new wing. But while we were in the lineup we did something called the "Bing-it-on" test which was to test Bing's search capabilities vs Google's and in the end you get a $25 off anything* in the store card.

The fine print was that it can't be used for Microsoft Surface or Surface related accessories. Since Connie's been to so many of these events she instinctively marked the person who looked like the biggest newbie and exploit them. We ended up picking up the Surface and saving $50 off the entire purchase. I was going to post this sooner but Connie didn't want me to spoil other people's chances of using their cards.
