Are we really talking about the best Black Friday Microsoft deals of 2021 already? Absolutely! And for good reason. This year's Black Friday Microsoft deals will be some of the very best you'll see all year, and this is the place to go to when November's Black Friday 2021 comes around.
We'll bring you the very best discounts and deals to be found on all Microsoft products – from Surface Pro tablets to Xbox Series X and S consoles (if there's available stock by then!)
Of course, we don't yet know the exact details of Black Friday 2021. The event could be cancelled, or all retailers could refuse to sell Microsoft products (though we think the likelihood of such events are on a par with flying pigs). But, having sought out Black Friday Microsoft deals for years now, we can say it's highly likely that there will be amazing deals to be had. Here's what you need to know.
Black Friday Microsoft deals: When to get them
As per every Black Friday event to date, you'll be able to make the most of the best Black Friday Microsoft deals straight after Thanksgiving in America. That means that in 2021, you're looking at 26 November for Black Friday, and 29 November for Cyber Monday (a more tech-focussed continuation of Black Friday).
Now, as seen in 2020, that won't stop online retailers making their own rules, and starting the sales early. Last year, Black Friday weekend was more like a Black Friday fortnight of fantastic deals and discounts. And we're going to report on all the best Black Friday Microsoft deals around this period of time, offering honest comparisons and helpful context, making sure that you bag the best deals possible.
Black Friday Microsoft: Deals we expect to see this year
Based on previous years, we've got a good idea of what Microsoft products will have the best discounts. For digital creatives, there were great deals on popular Surface Pro series of tablets, especially the newest Surface Pro 7. As Microsoft just released the Surface Pro 7+ laptop in January 2021, and with the rumoured released of the Surface Pro 8 not far behind, we expect some serious discounts on the Surface Pro series. And that's great news, as it's more affordable than the Surface Book, has more power than the Surface Go, and quicker than the Surface Laptop – all of which will have discounts too.
Elsewhere, although the Xbox One X was discontinued ahead of the new Xbox Series X|S last year, retailers are still going to want to shift their stock of the console, and that means prices will drop. If you're not too fussed about getting the most recent console, we think there are going to be some serious savings to be had.
