24 hour sale coming to Microsoft Store [updated]


[Updated 14 May 2015] A 24 hour sale at Microsoft's online store is just a week away.

The Microsoft Store is holding a one-day sale from 7pm on Tuesday 19 May to 7pm on Wednesday 20 May with some respectable discounts.

50% off Xbox games isn't to be sneezed at, and 20% off Xbox Live credits could be a useful saving.

If you need a new console, a $50 saving on an Xbox One or a $30 discount on an Xbox 360 is better than a kick in the teeth. Microsoft also promises savings of up to $239 plus a three-month Netflix subscription on Xbox One bundles. Xbox accessory prices are being reduced by 20%.

On the more serious side, 30% off Skype credits could be a good reason to stock up, and if you were planning to buy a Surface Pro 3 (256GB i5, and 256GB and 512GB i7 models) then this is your chance to get a free Type Cover (usual price $179.99).

It turns out that the Microsoft Store sale is part of Click Frenzy's MAYhem promotion, but there's no mention of other participants on the latter's site.

Previous Click Frenzy events have not been stellar - see, for example, Click Frenzy still a click flop.
