Microsoft Store Black Friday 2013
If you’re looking for top-of-the-line gadgets and electronics this Black Friday, get excited – the Microsoft Store Black Friday 2013 ad is here! The good news: its four pages contain tons of popular, high-quality items that will make outstanding gifts. The bad news: the ad doesn’t contain prices, so we can’t speak to the quality of Microsoft’s Black Friday deals just yet. It does contain plenty of in-demand video games, laptops, music accessories and more, so the quality and variety if its selection both earn high marks. The ad scan’s first page promises that “Prices drop at midnight ET on November 28,” so you’ll need to stay tuned for exact prices, but for now you can scroll down to take a look at some of the ad’s most excellent items.

Best Microsoft Store Black Friday Deals from 2012
The 4-page ad for Microsoft Store last year was quite simple but nevertheless enticing with its deals on the latest electronics products. The ad mainly offered a minimal sampling of what was in store, highlighting across its selection of laptops, tablets, video games, and more.
The one and only laptop advertised in the ad was a good deal. The 15” Acer Aspire V5 Notebook with Intel Core i5 processor and preloaded Windows 8 was 33.3% off at $399. The tablet on sale also had a great discount but on its accessories. The Surface tablet (which came in two options, 32GB or 64GB) had an unlisted price, but in a bundle with a black Touch Cover—and the second cover of one’s choice was $50 off. If the buyer was one of the first 100 to purchase the Surface tablet, they received a complimentary Surface sleeve (usually up to $49).
In the realm of entertainment electronics, the Xbox 360 4GB Kinect Holiday Bundle had $100 off, bringing the price to $199, and this bundle included the console, Kinect Sensor, Wireless Controller, Kinect: Disneyland Adventures game, and Kinect Adventures! Another potential purchase was the Xbox LIVE 3-month membership for $12.99 at 48% off, for any gameplay or Netflix movie streaming. 10% off all Beats by Dr. Dre Solo HD headphones brought those audio powerhouses down to $179.99. Lastly, video games on sale included the $14.99 Forza Horizon, $24.99 Assassin’s Creed III, and $14.99 Dance Central 3.
For good deals on electronics, Microsoft Store had a minimalist but solid selection last year and should have one again this Black Friday! For similar electronics retailers, check out Best Buy, GameStop, and Electronics Expo ad leaks.
