Microsoft's 12 days of deals promotion kicks off on Monday
If you're reading this, it means you're interested in finding out how to get a Dell Venue 8 Pro for $99. The answer is simple: Be fast. Starting Monday, December 9, Microsoft will begin its 12 days of deals promotion in which it will offer up a new item each day at a discount. Dell's Venue 8 Pro is kicking off the promotion, though you'll have to be super fast to snag one for a Benjamin. Here's how it works.
According to CNET, Microsoft's retail stores will offer up the Windows 8.1 tablet for $99 to the first 20 buyers only. After that, it jumps to $199 for the rest of the day and/or until the store runs out of stock. Some stores will have as little as 10 units available at $199, others will have more.
If you prefer to try your luck online, the $99 price tag will apply to the first 100 orders, after which it jumps to $199 until stock is depleted. Once Microsoft runs out of stock, it goes back to the normal selling price of $299.
Considering the substantial discount, these tablets are likely to sell out quick at $99, and probably at $199 as well. Your best bet is to call your local Microsoft store and find out what time they plan to open on Monday. As for online sales, it's not yet clear what time the deal will go live.
