The Acer Active Stylus Confusion
In our coverage on the 2017 Acer Spin 5 convertible laptop, we pointed out that the Acer Active Stylus was an optional accessory. Some publications reported otherwise, leading to confusion and some disgruntled customers.
We checked with Acer Malaysia, who confirmed that their official press release remain correct – the Acer Active Stylus, was and still is, an optional accessory.
However, they also confirmed that they gave away the Active Stylus free with the 13.3″ Acer Spin 5 as part of a special offer. They also said that they are now extending the same offer to the 15.6″ Acer Spin 5.
So that’s the good news – everyone who purchased the new 2017 Acer Spin 5 will receive a FREE Acer Active Stylus!
How To Get The Free Acer Active Stylus
Acer Malaysia included the Active Stylus in the package of every 13.3″ model of the 2017 Acer Spin 5. If you purchased one, the Active Stylus should already be inside the package.
If you purchased the 15.6″ model, you will need to send an email with a proof of purchase (receipt or tax invoice) to [email protected]. Acer Malaysia will make arrangements to send you the free Acer Active Stylus in a month or so.
The free Acer Active Stylus is classified as complimentary, and is not part of the standard 2017 Acer Spin 5 package. That means Acer will only send one to you, if you ask them about it.
So help spread the word, so that all Acer Spin 5 customers are aware that they’re entitled to a free Active Stylus!
