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 $139.99. The pricetag for Windows 10 Pro is $199.00. There is no Black Friday discount available on Microsoft’s Store regarding these two OS packages.
Black Friday 2019 Update
While Microsoft hasn’t offered any deals for its OS this year, we thought to offer you some alternatives.
- Discounted Surface laptops
- Office 356 deals
- Xbox Game Pass Ultimate
If you go to this page, you’ll see a slightly nicer price tag than the one offered by the Redmond giant. However, keep in mind that this is the OEM version. Windows 10 OEM is a full version of the OS but it’s not supported by Microsoft. Some buyers also complained about various activation issues so proceed at your own risk.
It is worth mentioning that you can still get Windows 10 as a free upgrade in 2019 — and chances are the offer will be valid in 2020 as well.
You can read the original report below.
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.
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.
