Ho ho ho, Santa Nadella comes bearing gifts for nearly two weeks as Microsoft offers up “12 Days of Deals” on its online and retail stores. Some of these deals are pretty good, while others are a little ambiguous. In a nod to retail traffic, Microsoft is also offering “In-Store Doorbuster Deals” that are only available at its 116 stores worldwide. And they have some of the best offerings. So without further ado, let’s run down the list, along with my take on each deal:
- Day 6-December 10:
*Save up to $250 on the Windows Premium Collection, starting at $499.
*In-Store Doorbuster Deal: Biggest savings of the year on Office 365 Home.
This is too vague. The Premium Collection is sizable and they don’t say which devices are a part of it. And why no specifics on the in-store deal?
All told there are some great deals, some not-so-great deals, and a few where Microsoft looks to be blowing out old inventory. Still, it’s a lot more than Apple is offering.
