Microsoft Stores promotion offers a free year of Zune Pass for those who buy a Windows Phone
Well, if you happen to live within driving distance of any retail Microsoft Store, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find one sweet deal they’re offering right now for a limited time when you buy a Windows Phone.

Running right now until Valentine’s Day on February 14th, Microsoft Stores are offering a year of Zune Pass for free, well, that’s as long as you purchase a Windows Phone from them. Although it’s more than likely applied to devices bought with a contract, we’d fathom that it would also apply to devices purchased outright – though, it can be a case-by-case scenario.

When you think about it, that’s essentially like saving a cool $120 seeing that Zune Pass normally requires a $10 per month subscription – therefore, it’s a pretty sweet promotion. Not only will you be able to surprise that special someone with one awesome Windows Phone of some sort, but they’ll also be ecstatic to know they'll be able to listen to some sweet tunes as well courtesy of Zune Pass.

Again, this promotion is only available through Microsoft Stores, which aren’t necessarily abundant across the country like some other retail spots. Nevertheless, if you’re really adamant on getting a free year of Zune Pass, then it’s probably worth it to drive a little bit out of the way to snag on this deal.

@Netolic windows phones don't need dual core or quad core because there are no unnecessary contents in windows phone.

Zune is a s**t, MicroSoft should use mass storage. Why copy apple in that point?

Love my WP7 phone! Bought it about mid December 2011 and it's my first WP7. I love that the OS is so smooth, responsive, and intuitive. Can't believe that the phone has only a 1GHZ single-core chip and yet it's so fluid and fast! Unfortunately, I don't live anywhere near a Microsoft Store so can't take advantage of this offer.
