This time every year, millions of Americans scour ad inserts and search the Web before mapping out their strategies and setting their alarms for the mother of all shopping expeditions: Black Friday. As the official kick off to the holiday shopping season, Black Friday has nearly become as much of a tradition as Thanksgiving itself. According to a survey from the National Retail Federation (NRF), this year will draw approximately 97 million shoppers on Black Friday, vying for the season’s hottest deals.
Whether you join them online or in the malls, we’ve gathered a dozen hot buys on Windows PCs and tablets, Windows Phone devices and cool accessories that you’ll be able to find at Microsoft Store locations, MicrosoftStore.com and partner retailers. Take a look – you might even find something to add to your own wish list.
In the likely event some of the above PC offers leave you in a decision quandary, take a look at the PC Selector. It’ll help you narrow down what devices will best fit your life – at work and play.
If you noticed that many offers begin on Thursday, Nov. 28, it’s true. “Black Friday” has slowly crept into Thanksgiving. In fact, the earlier mentioned NRF survey estimates that 33 million people will shop Thanksgiving Day. Hopefully, you’ll be able to feast on the season’s deals without passing up the turkey and dressing. And if you don’t get your fill this weekend, be sure to check MicrosoftStore.com for Cyber Monday deals.
