Microsoft’s Black Friday deals are in full swing, which means you can save big on Surface devices, Xbox accessories, and more right now. Surface fans will want to check out the bundles on sale for the holiday shopping season. Microsoft is one of your best bets if you want to get most of the things you’ll need to make a Surface device your own in one go, while retailers like Amazon tend to have good deals on devices only.
Buy Surface bundles at Microsoft
One of our favorite bundles is on the Surface Laptop Go 2, which makes our list of the best cheap Windows laptops. Depending on the configuration you choose, you can save more than $200 on a bundle that includes the laptop, a Surface Mobile Mouse, and a three-year protection plan. The most affordable configuration will set you back just over $655, and that gets you the Go 2 with a Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD. But we’d recommend going with the next model — that one has 8GB of RAM, along with the rest of the same specs, and the bundle will set you back just over $735. You’ll appreciate that extra 4GB of RAM when you’re doing any kind of multitasking, including Edge’s large number of tabs open while running a couple of other apps at the same time.
While most of the discounts are on bundles of slightly older Surface devices, there are a couple available for the new Surface Pro 9 and Surface Laptop 5. For the Pro 9, you can save a minimum of $80 on a bundle that includes the two-in-one, a Surface Pro Signature Keyboard, a Microsoft 365 subscription, and a two-year protection plan. Arguably most importantly, you can choose between Intel- or ARM-powered Pro 9s for this Essential Bundle, and we recommend going with the former for the best possible performance. As for the Essential Bundle for Laptop 5, you get the same things as in the Pro 9 bundles, albeit without the keyboard accessory.
If you already have the computer of your choice, Microsoft also has a number of good Xbox deals to consider. Not only can you get $50 off the Xbox Series S and get yourself a headset, but the company is also matching many of the Xbox controller deals we first saw on Amazon. That’s all plus Microsoft is also offering up to 67 percent off select Xbox titles.
