Continuing a holiday tradition, Microsoft is offering its 12 Days of Deals, a post Black Friday/Cyber Monday holiday campaign that will offer customers deals on Windows-based tablets, phones, and laptops.  This is an offer that is only available in the United States and Canada, and, according to Phone Arena, Microsoft does not mention the products that it will offer as part of the promotion in the following days.  In other words, the 12 Days of Deals isn't as listed out as its namesake, "The Twelve Days of Christmas".  However, it is possible to see the deal for the next day.

Continuing a holiday tradition, Microsoft is offering its 12 Days of Deals, a post Black Friday/Cyber Monday holiday campaign that will offer customers deals on Windows-based tablets, phones, and laptops.  This is an offer that is only available in the United States and Canada, and, according to Phone Arena, Microsoft does not mention the products that it will offer as part of the promotion in the following days.  In other words, the 12 Days of Deals isn't as listed out as its namesake, "The Twelve Days of Christmas".  However, it is possible to see the deal for the next day. 

The campaign kicked off yesterday with the Toshiba Encore Mini Windows tablet for $79, which is a markdown from its usual price of $99.  Unfortunately, this tablet sold out yesterday, and even with proper inventory, this deal has expired.  All the other deals listed will expire almost as quickly as they were posted. 

As of this writing, Microsoft is selling the Blu Win HD smartphone for $129 unlocked, which is a $50 markdown from its $179 price.  The BLU Win HD has a 5-inch IPS HD Display, 8GB of storage with a microSD 32GB, an 8 Megapixel camera with Dual SIM, and Windows Phone 8.1.  It is available in four colors that include white, pink, orange, and green. 

On the 3rd day of Microsoft's 12 days of deals, there will be a very special deal for the Xbox One Assassin's Creed Unity Bundle beginning on December 10, at 8AM ET.  This bundle will be about $349.00, which will include an Xbox One console with a 500 GB hard drive, an Assassin's Creed Unity download, Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag download, and a Wireless controller and chat handset. 

According to the Epoch Times, leaks of the 12 Days of Deals have appeared on the Slickdeals forum and include this list which has already been proven wrong with the December 10 deal:

Dec 09 - Dell Tablet $99
Dec 10 - Garmin Fitness Watch + $25 Gift card $99.99
Dec 11 - AT&T Nokia 1020 - Free
Dec 12 - Fitbit Flex and Yurbuds Fitness Earbuds w/$25 gift card $99.99
Dec 13 - GTA 5 $20 (assume xbox360 only)
Dec 14 - Surface Pro combo deal $100 off
Dec 15 - Xbox Music pass 1 year $30
Dec 16 - HP Pavilion X2 13 $599
Dec 17 - 60% off SOL Republic Headphones $40
Dec 18 - AT&T Lumia 1520 Free and $50 app card w/purchase
Dec 19- JBL Flip Bluetooth Speaker $40
Dec 20 - HP Envy 15 $499

So far, there is no word on what will the deals be for the remaining 12 Days of Deals, which will go from December 11-19.  I wouldn't be surprised if there were more smartphones such as Nokia phones, as well as any laptops that run Windows.
