Microsoft's gearing up for Black Friday, and if you're a gamer, tech enthusiast or getting your Christmas shopping done early, you're in for a treat.
Though Black Friday is not traditionally celebrated by Australian brick and mortar stores, the online world is rife with discounts and deals on tech and gaming products. One store that frequently stands out in this regard is the Microsoft Store. The Australian arm of the tech giant offers a broad range of products from its own Microsoft-branded laptops and tablets to third-party devices from companies like Razer, Dell and ASUS.
In past years, we've seen Microsoft offer steep Black Friday discounts on many of its Surface products such as the Surface Laptop and Surface Pro. Xbox One deals frequently play a key role, too, with previous Black Friday sales seeing console bundles slashed by hundreds of dollars while accessories and games receive their own decent price cuts. Expect to see a similar story play out this year, with Microsoft likely focusing on its newer Xbox One X console as well as its latest line of Surface Go and Surface Pro devices.
Black Friday 2018 will kick off on Friday 23 November. Since Australia is roughly 16 hours ahead of most of the US, you can expect deals to start popping up just as the work day ends.
