The Microsoft Store will be aggressively slashing the price of the Dell Venue 8 Pro on Monday from $299 to just $99.
Likely attempting to extend the Black Friday and Cyber Monday holidays further into December, all 77 Microsoft Stores around in the United States will offer the promotional price to the first twenty people in line for the Dell Venue 8 Pro tablets at 10 a.m. After the initial stock sells out, the tablet price will increase to $199 for the rest of the day while supplies last.
The online version of the Microsoft Store will also offer the $99 deal to the first 100 people that start shopping at 10 a.m. ET on the site.
Similar to the in-store promotion, the price will rise to $199 after the initial allotment of 100 tablets is sold. It’s possible that customers could have more luck obtaining the tablet at the brick and mortar locations as Microsoft relies on email advertising heavily over traditional fliers.
