Black Friday Guide to Saving at Microsoft Store
You’ll skip the stress and save your time when you shop online, which is priceless. With these Black Friday shopping tips, you’ll be saving so much money as well.
Research Specs Before ShoppingBuying electronics is a pretty serious thing. There are so many different options for computers, from the perfect commuter tablet to the serious desktop meant for designing. Before you start your Black Friday electronics shopping, know exactly what parameters you’re shopping within. Do you have a price limit? Minimum processor speed requirement? Do you need something with a specific number of USB ports, or a certain screen size?
Do as much research as you can about what products are currently available at the Microsoft Store so that when shopping day comes around, you won’t waste time looking up specs and features. You’ll also get a better idea of what certain products and features are worth on the market, so you’ll know if that Black Friday deal is really such a great price.
Stick to a Game PlanIf you tell yourself you’re going to buy a new laptop, a smaller flat-screen TV, an external hard drive, and a new DVD player, and that your budget is under $1,500, stick to this. It’s okay to leave yourself some wiggle room for something you may have forgotten you need, or if you spot a deal that really is too good to pass up. However, generally, you should make a list and stick to it so you don’t end up going overboard and buying things you definitely don’t need.
Free ReturnsThe Microsoft Store offers free returns on items ordered during the Black Friday sale. This means you can be a little more lenient when it comes to buying something you think you’ll love but aren’t quite sure about. The only thing that’s better than a huge sale is one that’s risk-free.
Check Competitors’ PricesComparing prices only takes a few minutes or even seconds, and can save you so much money. Just open a few browser tabs while shopping online and when you find something you want to order, do a quick check at other comparable stores to see what price they offer. You’ll either find out that you’re definitely getting the best price or that you need to look elsewhere.

Use Coupon and Promo CodesBefore starting your Black Friday shopping session, head over to the Microsoft Store’s page at Ebates. Here’s where you’ll find a list of all the currently active promo and coupon codes that you can use for orders at the Microsoft Store, neatly organized and ready to be applied at checkout. These codes can give you incredible savings on items like game consoles, computer accessories, and more.
Shop the Sale SectionBlack Friday sales sometimes make the prices of things already on sale even more unbelievable. Before you start looking at all the new items that are now offered at a discount, go check out the sale section to see those already discounted prices drop even lower.
Shop Refurbished ItemsIf you want to save some extra money on top of the Black Friday discounts, check to see if you can find refurbished items. These items are always tested by certified technicians and come with a great warranty. They also tend to be priced significantly lower than non-refurbished items.
Microsoft Store Rewards SavingsIt’s free and easy to join the Microsoft Rewards program, and you’ll start saving up points on all of your orders, including your Black Friday orders. Don’t let the excitement of shopping make you forget to take advantage of this and other rewards programs.
