Windows Insiders, we know testing out a new build of Windows 10 is its own reward, but Microsoft has another for you: If you show up to a Microsoft Store on July 29, you’ll get a 20-percent discount on PC hardware and accessories.

How do you get it? Well, Microsoft’s offer is available only via the Windows Insider Hub app on Windows 10. (We assume everyone will receive the same deal, but we can’t be absolutely certain.)

Repeat: It’s open only to Windows Insiders. You’ll need either to print out the offer or bring the physical device to the Store and show it to a clerk. Insiders also have a shot at scoring an exclusive T-shirt, though you’ll have to be one of the first 50 in line.

The Insider Hub isn’t installed by default on Windows 10 PCs, at least not with the latest builds. You’ll need to install it to receive the discount. To access the Insider Hub, go to Settings > System > Apps & features > Manage optional features, then select Add a feature, according to Microsoft. From the list of features, choose Insider Hub, and then select Install.

Why this matters: Let’s face it: to most Windows Insiders, just being in the know with the latest code is probably reward enough. But isn’t it a sweet deal to get an additional discount?
