Microsoft’s 12 days of deals holiday season promotion starts at 12am Pacific on Monday, December 5. Each day has a different special offer, and some of the savings sound pretty big.
On two different days, including the opening Monday, certain Intel systems will be discounted by as much as $1,000. Certain Dell machines will be discounted by as much as 40 percent on the 11th day of the promotion, and, on the last day, Microsoft is cutting up to $200 off the Surface Pro 4 while throwing in a free $159 Type Cover.
There will be promotions covering tablets, laptops, Xbox One consoles, games, and even the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift VR headsets at various times through the month. Offers will be available online and in-store while stocks last, with the promotion of the day changing at midnight Pacific each day.
If you elect to visit one of the physical stores, there’s a second set of daily promotions available on top of the 12 days of deals; this set includes a $120 price cut (down to $179) on certain Xbox One consoles on Sunday, December 11.
