Yesterday, Matthew Yglesias at Slate was making fun of the physical Microsoft Store at his local shopping center. Apparently, no one wants to buy Microsoft (MSFT) products, as the Microsoft Store was completely empty at noon.
Apple (AAPL) products, on the other hand, appear hot … as the nearby Apple Store was bumping.
But even if folks are turning a cold shoulder to the Microsoft Store nearest them, there’s a good chance plenty are flocking to the online Microsoft Store. That’s because the Microsoft Online Store just kicked off its “12 days of deals” which runs from Dec. 9 to Dec. 20.
And yesterday’s first daily deal — a Dell Venue 8 Pro Tablet for just $99 — sold out quickly.
The daily deals at the online Microsoft Store begin every morning at 7 a.m. But if you’re not a fan of doorbuster shopping, check out these other standing deals at the Microsoft Store, and finish your Christmas shopping with the quick click of a mouse.
