Windows 8 $15 Promotional Upgrade For Win 7 PCs Ends Thursday

If you recently purchased a Windows 7 PC, you’re probably aware Microsoft has given those customers the opportunity to upgrade their machines to Windows 8 for only $15. The $15 upgrade offer was first started back in August 2012, and it looks as though Microsoft will no longer be offering this upgrade starting this Thursday.

The process of upgrading your Windows 7 PC to a Windows 8 PC isn’t a very long one as the registration process will ask you for your contact information, the brand and model of your computer, the retailer where you purchased it from and the date it was purchased. Once everything checks out, you should then receive an email with a promotional code and a link so you could install Windows 8 on your machine.

Once this promotional offering expires, those of you who recently purchased a Windows 7 PC will need to cough up as much as $200 for your Windows 8 upgrade, that is, if you decide to get Windows 8 Pro. The standard edition of Windows 8 will only cost you $120.

If you’re eligible for the upgrade, we encourage you to take advantage of this offer or else it could cost you some serious bucks after this Thursday.
