No Black Friday discount for the Windows 10 OS

If Microsoft convinced you to upgrade to Windows 10, but you decided to wait for Black Friday to get your hands on the company’s latest OS, we don’t actually have good news for you. Yes, the Redmond giant kicked off the Black Friday season on the Windows Store, but Windows 10’s price tag remains the same.

In other words, if you want to buy the Windows 10 Home package, you need to pay $119.99. The pricetag for Windows 10 Pro is $249.00. There is no Black Friday discount available on Microsoft’s Store regarding these two OS packages.

Many users hoped that Microsoft would discount the Windows 10 OS, but it appears the company has no plans doing so. After all, Windows 10 Anniversary Update was only launched in August and the Redmond giant offered users the chance to upgrade for free up until July 29.

On a more positive note, if you’re interested in purchasing the Office package, you can now save up to $30 for Word, Excel, PowerPoint and company.

As always, the main Black Friday discounts are available for Windows 10 laptops, and the Surface family. You can now save up to $350 for the Surface Pro 4,  $330 for selected Dell laptops, $280 for the impressive HP Elite X3 Holiday Bundle and the list can go on.

Of course, retailers are offering huge discounts as well. HP, the most popular Windows 10 PC manufacturer, has prepared a delightful Black Friday discount list that will definitely tempt many potential buyers. HP is offering consumers up to 50% off storewide on Black Friday, and free shipping is the cherry on top.

The only problem with this rich offer is that it’s difficult to decide what to buy. Cortana and Microsoft Edge can help you make better purchasing decisions, remind you about discounts and compare the price tag of the products you’re interested in buying.
