I recently spent time with the Dell Venue 8 Pro and really liked it. In fact, it's on my Christmas wish list. I go into the reason why I liked it here: Christmas Must-have's: Dell Venue 8 Pro.

Forget Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Microsoft is kicking off a 12 Days of Deals promotion where they will be offering doorbuster savings off Microsoft Store items, for, you guessed it, 12 days. The promotion starts Monday, December 9, 2013, and the very first item rolling off the hit list is the Dell Venue 8 Pro Tablet.

On Monday, if you visit a Microsoft Store in your area, or shop the Windows store online, the Dell Venue 8 Pro will be just $99 while supplies last. The deal is available to the first 20 through the door at all Microsoft Store physical locations, and to the first 100 ordering online. After the $99 units are gone, the tablet will bump up to $199 for the rest of the day, which is still a great deal. The sale starts at 10am EST.

Check out the promotion HERE. I dare you to try and beat me out of one of these. I'll be up early.
