Microsoft announces Black Friday savings for this year
Microsoft has released details of its Black Friday 2018 campaign already. Rather unsurprisingly, it mainly features Surface tablets and laptops of varying newness. For example, the Surface laptop 2 (black version) will be available at US$300 off its usual price between November 18 and 24. Some variants of the Surface Go will also be $50 off during this period. The Surface Pro (5th Gen) with Intel Core M/Platinum Type Cover Bundle will start at $599 (or $310 off the usual price) at the same time.
The Surface Pro 6 (Intel i5/256GB SSD), bundled with its Type cover (also in black only), will have a $330 discount from November 22 to 26. Microsoft is also offering deals on XBox hardware and access for Black Friday. The XBox One X 1TB will have $100 off its usual price from November 18, and select One X bundles will be cut by $50 in price.
Newcomers to XBox can also get a months' Game Pass for $1, or access to Live Gold for the same price. XBox wireless controller,s will be discounted by $20 for Black Friday, although the Xbox Design Lab variants will be only $10 less. Will you be grabbing a new Microsoft product for the holiday?
