    My country is not listed so that I can benefit from the offer regarding the surface!
    Can anyone help us regarding this situation??

    You can benefit from the reduced price surface RT and PRO using the card they gave you at registration. It's the purple one with the two codes on it. When you go to the MS store, you enter the promo code when purchasing and it will show you the discount. If you like me I used both codes as it's a MASSIVE saving.

    I know about the offer but the surface can not be shipped to my country :( how can we resolve this problem????
