Yesterday, Microsoft kicked off a special “12 Days of Deals” promotion, during which it will offer a discount on one popular product each day through Dec. 20 at its retail stores. The company apparently planned to keep each day’s deal a surprise, but those plans were foiled when an anonymous tipster published a document on a Slickdeals forum detailing the entire promotion.
Today’s discount is on the Garmin Fitness Watch, but the document also reveals that Microsoft will offer discounts on the Lumia 1020, the Fitbit Flex, SOL Republic headphones, an HP Pavilion X2 13 and even on a copy of GTA V. As an added incentive, the first 20 customers each day will receive an additional “doorbuster” discount that drops the price of the day’s item down significantly. A Lumia 1020 or a Lumia 1520 will be free with a two-year contract for doorbusters, for example.
The internal document seems legitimate so far, since the deals listed for yesterday and today are correct. Microsoft could still decide to shake things up in response to the leak, but if you see something worthwhile going on sale over the next 10 days, it might not hurt to hit up a Microsoft retail store to try your luck.
