Microsoft Launches Crowdfunding Method to Help Students Buy PCs

Microsoft Chip In ProgramMicrosoft launched a new way for college students to pay for Windows PC purchases on Tuesday — a Kickstarter-style crowdfunding program.

The tech giant’s new “Chip In” program lets friends and family crowdsource donations toward purchasing a Windows PC for a college student.

The program works like this: A college student selects a new Windows PC device on the Chip In site, then creates a campaign page and shares it out to friends and family, asking for help funding the computer. Microsoft contributes 10% of the PC purchase as the first donation.

When the new computer is funded, the student receives a promotional coupon code to buy the device from MicrosoftStore.com.
