The Surface Pro 8 is up to $200 off with Microsoft Store’s holiday deals

If you’re still scrambling to buy some gifts for this holiday season, the Microsoft Store is currently running holiday deals you can still take advantage of. Microsoft is offering discounts on a wide range of products, including the newly-launched Surface Pro 8, which is already $200 off its regular price.

The sale also includes games, apps, and movies on the Microsoft Store. We’ve rounded up some of the best deals you can find during this sale to finish up your holiday shopping.

Surface Pro 8 (up to $200 off)

The Surface Pro 8 is Microsoft’s latest high-end tablet, and it’s definitely the best one yet. It comes with Intel’s 11th-generation Core processors, a 120Hz display (set to 60Hz out of the box), high-quality cameras, and, for the first time, Thunderbolt 4 support. It’s also one of the most expensive Surface Pro tablets Microsoft has made, but that’s only because the base model now comes with a Core i5 and 8GB of RAM, whereas previous models started with a Core i3 and 4GB of RAM.


Thankfully, as part of these deals, the entry-level model is getting the highest discount, so instead of starting at $1,099.99, the Surface Pro 8 now starts at $899.., which is much more palatable. That’s frankly a great price for everything packed into this tablet, and this is a great opportunity to upgrade. Other models have discounts from $100 to $200, including the top-tier configurations. No matter what version you want, you can find it below. The deal lasts until January 2nd.

    The Surface Pro 8 is Microsoft's most exciting tablet in a long time, adding a 120Hz display and Thunderbolt support.

Surface Pro 7 (up to $600 off)

If the price for the new tablet is still a bit too steep for you, the Surface Pro 7 is also getting some hefty discounts on the Microsoft Store. This model comes with Intel’s 10th-generation processors, a smaller (but equally sharp) 12.3-inch display, and a magnesium chassis with flatter edges. It’s lighter and more portable than its successor, so it’s a good option if that’s your priority.

Most models of the Surface Pro 7 seem to be sold out, but you can get $4400 off the model with a Core i5, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD, making it just $799.99. The biggest discount on the variant with an Intel Core i7, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD, which brings the price down from $1,899.99 to just $1,299.99. It’s not the latest hardware but for that price, it’s not a bad deal at all. The deal lasts through December 24th.

    If you don't need the latest hardware, the Surface Pro 7 is still a great option, and with up to $600 off, it's hard to go wrong.
