All the Best Deals from Microsoft's Black Friday Discounts

Microsoft

Thanksgiving is almost here , and that means Black Friday is looming as well. And if you've been holding out for a better deal on that new laptop or gaming console, now's the time to browse for deals.

Microsoft just announced a slew of discounts starting on Thanksgiving-that's Thursday, November 23-through Cyber Monday, November 27. Here are the best Black Friday deals the company has to offer.

Save Big on a Surface Pro Bundle ($329 off)

If you're looking for a tablet-laptop hybrid, Microsoft has you covered. The company has been iterating on its sleek-yet-solid Surface lineup for years, and the latest Surface Pro offers one of the best experiences around. That includes a high-quality touchscreen and a powerful processor, though the Surface Pen stylus is no longer included in the box for some reason.

This year, Microsoft is offering $329 off the price of the new Surface Pro with 256GB of storage space (normally $1,299) when you buy it with the black Type Cover keyboard (currently currently $93.98 from Microsoft on Amazon), which you'll need if you want to use it in laptop mode. So the final discounted price should come to $1063.98.

You can also pick the cheaper 128GB Surface Pro ($999) with the Type Cover and save $299 instead. In that case, the final price should be $793.98.

Get Microsoft's Invoke Smart Speaker For Free-When You Buy a Surface Laptop ($1,299 and up)

Last month , Microsoft dove into the smart speaker wars with Invoke, a high-end Bluetooth speaker with Cortana voice controls. 30 days later, the company is giving away the Invoke for free when you pick up a Surface Laptop for Black Friday.

That deal covers either the 256GB Surface Laptop with Intel's i5 chip ($1,299) or the i7 model (starting at $1,599). If you're not interested in a pricy new laptop, you can also grab Microsoft's Invoke speaker on its own for $100 off, dropping the price down to $99.95.

The Best Deal Ever on the Xbox One S ($189)

Microsoft just released the ultra-powerful Xbox One X , but if you're looking or something a little less expensive that will still work with your 4K TV , the company is knocking $60 off the Xbox One S , dropping the price to a new all-time low of $189 over Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

The temporary bundle also includes one free game of your choice (presumably from a pre-selected list), 14 days of Xbox Live Gold for online gaming, and a month of Xbox Game Pass, which offers unlimited access to over 100 older Xbox titles.

If you need a new gaming console this is a solid deal, but if your current system still works, you may want to hold off. We have a feeling the Xbox One S will continue to drop in price now that it's been succeeded by the Xbox One X.
