Microsoft and Amazon to start 12 Days of Deals this week
Black Friday and Cyber Monday have officially come and gone, but there are still plenty of deals to be found throughout December, all designed to help you finish your shopping lists. Amazon and Microsoft will be debuting their “12 Days of Deals” this week, both starting on December 4, 2016. Both sites will offer a highlighted sale, which changes each day, on top of the discounted items and promotions that can be found throughout the entire store.
Amazon states, “With 12 Days of Deals, you’ll still have a ton of exciting stuff to look forward to throughout the season. Come back every day for new savings on great gifts that will help your guests check off everyone on their list in no time. No turtledoves or maids-a-milking required.”
Amazon stopped short of detailing all of the deals that the retailer will be offering this year, but did provide an outline of what to expect.
Sunday will begin with “Presents Opened with Glee: Gifts for kids,” which will include a $10 off deal on the popular Kindle for Kids Bundle. Monday will host “Title Loves: Gifts in books and media,” which will offer $80 off an Amazon Fire 16GB + Amazon Tap Bundle. That might be the gift to beat during the promotion, and will most likely sellout quickly.
Tuesday will begin the “Brunch Friends: Gifts in home and kitchen” promotion, and Wednesday will have the “Brawling Nerds: Gifts in video games” event.
You can then follow the trends for the rest of the week, including Thursday’s “Golden Things: Gifts in clothing and jewelry,” Friday’s “Gears-a-turning: Gifts in tools and DIY,” Saturday’s “Suitcases Brimming: Gifts in luggage and travel,” and finally Sunday’s “Weights for Lifting: Gifts in fitness and activity”.
The final week will include “LEDs Romancing: Gifts in tech and gadgets,” “Makers Making: Gifts in crafts and hobbies,” “Puppies Peeking: Gifts for pets and animals” and December 15th will host “Gifters Grabbing: Stocking stuffers”. Amazon did not disclose the highlighted deals for these final events, but will announce them as we get closer to each day.
You will find all of these promotions on the 12 Days of Deals promotional page, located here on Amazon.com.
Microsoft will kick off their event with savings up to $1,000 off on select Intel-powered PCs, some starting at $199. That event will go live on Monday. Tuesday you can find a Lenovo Ideapad 110 laptop for $199, and Wednesday the site will host a giant sale on Xbox One games.
Thursday shoppers save $250 on the Surface Pro 4 128GB SSD version, and get a free sleeve with purchase. Friday will host a 70% off sale on select tablets. That same weekend Microsoft will offer $250 off on Windows Premium Collection devices, and Saturday will offer a new promotion on Xbox One controllers.
