Black Friday 2016 is almost here and major tech companies and retailers across not just the U.S., but all over the world are gearing up to the event with hugely discounted deals.
Microsoft is one such company that has huge Black Friday 2016 deals coming up, especially when it comes to the fan favorites Surface and Xbox devices.
While it is easy to find companies that care less about Black Friday deals, Microsoft has you at heart during this holiday shopping season. Some could be excited with the fact that Microsoft has its own Black Friday 2016 deals in the hope that the recently-announced hardware that includes the Surface Book, are part of the discounted products. Well, you will be disappointed, especially given that some devices launched at last month’s Windows event will not start shipping until 2017.
Nonetheless, the official Microsoft Store still carries a wide variety of other devices, among them the Surface series, PC-based VR headsets as well as Xbox gear, among others. Even though the major Black Friday 2016 deals will not be available until November 24, there are many others that are already going on after kicking off on November 18.
If you are in the market for a new Microsoft Surface Book, you can get last year’s model that houses 256GB for a discounted price of $1,499, down from the usual $1,899. It gets even better for Microsoft Surface Pro 4 seekers as the company has great deals on 128GB and 256GB models. The former will exchange hands from $799 instead of $999 while the latter, including a Type Cover, will exchange hands from $999 instead of the usual $1,399.
For gamers, there are some deals on the Xbox One that many would relish. The Xbox One S will be available for just $249, down from the usual $299 fee, but there will also be a $25 gift card included in the deal. In addition to this, you can also grab yourself an Xbox One Special Edition Dusk Shadow Wireless Controller at a discount of $30 whereas the Xbox Wireless Controller Gears of War 4 JD Fenix Limited Edition is down to $39.99.
VR lovers will be happy to know that the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift have discounts as well. The former will now cost $599.99, which includes a $100 gift code. As for the latter, the Black Friday 2016 price will be $499.99, where the $100 discount is a gift code.
These are not the only deals Microsoft is offering this Black Friday 2016, but there are more on the official website of the company. You can check them out to see what is right for you.
