Xbox One and Surface Pro 4 deals ring in Microsoft’s dozen days of savings

'12 Days of Deals' is like an mini-advent calendar of bargains

Despite an impressive showing of savings during last week's Black Friday event, Microsoft still isn't satisfied with cutting prices this holiday season.

The company has unveiled its annual 12 Days of Deals sale for 2016 on its site, allowing customers to take advantage of a series of 24-hour bargains discounting a range of devices from the Xbox One to the Surface Pro 4 to the HTC Vive.

Starting at 12:01am PST each day, from December 5 through to December 16, Microsoft is putting up a new sale that will stay up for one whole day (or supplies run out).

In addition to all-day deals, Microsoft will also be doing doorbuster sales at its brick-and-mortar locations in the US and Canada. 

Some incentives to expect during the doorbusters include select Xbox One consoles going for just $179 on December 11, and a $50 gift card to the first customers in line on December 16.

What's the Days of Deals schedule?

Looking at the upcoming list of sales, we were most impressed by the prospect of $200 of select Surface Pro 4s with a bonus type cover for an extra $159 in savings.

Other tempting offers include $50 off and two free games with select Xbox One consoles on December 12, and savings of up to $1,000(!) on select Intel-powered PCs on December 5.
