On December 17, Microsoft officially announced a special Holiday Sale the company is going to run until Christmas. This Super Sale is an excellent opportunity to get an Xbox One, Surface Book, or just a new PC for that loved one who’s been wanting one all year.
Discounts will be exclusively available at the official online store, running from December 17 to December 24 and featuring not only Microsoft-made products but third-party peripherals, games, and much more.
Microsoft’s Holiday deal on the Surface series, Alienware, and Dell inspiration 15
The Surface line gets a whopping $400 price cut in selected articles, including the Surface Book, and up to $429 on Surface Pro 4 devices with the Type Cover keyboard.
The Holiday sale follows with astonishing discounts of up to $1,100 in selected PCs. The flagship discount pertains to the Alienware 15 Touch Signature Edition Gaming Laptop, currently available for only $1,399.
This not-too-shabby price will get pro gamers a 6th generation i7 processor coupled with 16GB of the best RAM, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD, and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M GPU.
Also, Microsoft slashed two Dell Inspiron 15 i5 computers to nearly half the price with a $350 discount, both of them with 8GB RAM and 1TB HDD right in the box.
50% off select Xbox games, VR discounts, wearables, drones, and peripherals
A Seagate external drive compatible with the Xbox One now sells for only $99.99. Other discounts include the Mad Max game, Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition ($60 less), and many others including $50 cuts to a select number of Xbox One bundles.
The Parrot Hydrofoil NewZ drone receives an astounding $110 discount, costing only $49.99 during the sale. The amphibian machine can do both fly and swim without any trouble.
Customers will also be able to save up to $20 in selected FitBit wearable products and get a Microsoft Store gift card or gift code with the purchase of an HTC Vive VR system, with a starting price of $799.
The Vive bundle comes with everything a user needs to start enjoying VR environments, including its base stations and wiring. Microsoft’s gift card is worth $100, enough to purchase some additional VR content or some of the other products offered in the sale.
The Ventev Wallport is now only $25 with two ports for the fastest charging rate available in the market. Also, Ventev offers its Dashport car charger for the same price. Microsoft also puts any Lumia case for $59.99, but this is not a superb deal.
Lesser discounts include up to 33% cuts in Adobe products and $20 off a couple of JBL Bluetooth speakers.
