Summary:

Microsoft’s ’12 Days of Deals’ calendar might have leaked, and it shows some decent discounts to be had at Microsoft’s retail stores over the next 12 days.

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday behind us, Microsoft is allegedly looking to keep the retail momentum going with its 12 Days of Deals promotion. And a leaked document posted on the forums of Slickdeals purportedly details what you might be able to expect to go on sale from now until December 20.

Microsoft 12 Days List leak

As you can see, the “doorbuster” deals look particularly good. But according to the calendar, they’re limited to the first 20 customers. Everyone after that will still receive a discount on that day’s chosen product – it just won’t be as steep. The HP Envy 15, for instance, which regularly costs $899.99, is said to go on sale for $499 for the first 20 customers on December 20. After that it’ll cost $699.

There’s no way to know whether this calendar is authentic, but the Dell Tablet Pro listed here did go on sale for $99 today, lending the list a bit of legitimacy.

Check out the image above for the alleged early bird prices. For everyone else that isn’t planning to make it to a Microsoft store  at the crack of dawn, here are the deals you might be able to expect:

  • December 9: Dell Tablet Pro 8” for $199
  • December 10: Garmin Fitness Watch for $129.99 with a $25 gift card
  • December 11: AT&T Nokia Lumia 1020 for $99
  • December 12: Fitbit Flex and Yurbuds Fitness Earbuds for $99.99 with a $25 gift card
  • December 13: Grand Theft Auto 5 for $39.99
  • December 14: Surface Pro/Surface Pro 2 and Surface RT/Surface RT 2 bundles for $50 off
  • December 15: 1-year Xbox Music Pass for $69.99
  • December 16: HP Pavilion X2 13 for $699
  • December 17: SOL Republic Headphones for $30 off
  • December 18: AT&T Nokia Lumia 1520 for $99 with a $50 app card
  • December 19: JBL Flip Bluetooth Speaker for $30 off
  • December 20: HP Envy 15 for $699

    1. Hey there. I actually got clued into this on Twitter, but this story has been reported on by a number of different outlets.

      1. Tried to take advantage of Dell deal and ended up quitting in frustration !! What a waste of time, Website crashed repeatedly.

        1. Think this will be the case for any one of those popular deals (GTA V especially).

  2. Just FYI if you cant ensure you’re the first 20 in line.. HP is having their own flash sale. The Envy 15 with GT 740M is $629.99: http://www.dealzon.com/deals/hp-envy-15-laptop

    Not $499, but better than the $699 non-doorbuster price.

    Though I’m curious what kind of Envy 15 the Microsoft Store is carrying (i7? i5? RAM?). Would be funny if it turns out to be the AMD Envy 15, heh.

    (My guess its the Core i7, 6GB with 1TB HDD config).
