Microsoft Announces This Year's 12 Days of Deals

Breaking with tradition, Microsoft has pre-announced its annual 12 Days of Deals promotion, which starts next week. Unlike previous years, we know each of the deals ahead of time.

“Whether you prefer to skip the madness of Black Friday and Cyber Monday or just like to take your time buying holiday gifts, our 12 Days of Deals holiday sale has you covered,” Microsoft explains. “With great savings on some of the most sought-after gifts of the season, our limited-time offers put everything they want within reach – and within budget. Plus, with free shipping and free returns on every item every day, you can save even more when you shop at the Microsoft Store.”

Microsoft contacted me about this change last night, but the 12 Days of Deals page is already available on the Microsoft Store website. Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect:
