Microsoft offers Surface Complete, a $99 warranty to protect your investment
45 days from the time you purchase it to decide whether or not to purchase Surface Complete.
One last note, but a very important one. Those who purchase the Microsoft Surface from Best Buy, Staples are another retail store will not be automatically covered. One interpretation of the fine print is that a Surface purchased from a Best Buy or Staples store could be covered by the warranty if its condition is verified first at a Microsoft Store.

Good job Microsoft. Model yourselves a little more like Apple.
I picture Microsoft to be Cameron Frye swimming in the wake of Apple's Ferris Bueller.
Sorry... slow weekend workday. The mind wanders.

I really like Microsoft, but that should be included in the device price.

Tech companies/retailers should stop calling it warranty but a insurance. If you give warranty to something you should be confident your product has high quality.

apparently if you have this cover then they'll even allow a replacement when you spill your coffee all over your tablet. :P
