If you have Windows 10 and live in the U.S., then you can enjoy select 10 cent movies, music, apps and games available in the Windows Store. If you don’t have Windows 10, then Microsoft may hope the 1,000 dime deals will be enough to tempt you to install it.
Microsoft’s pre-Black Friday sale “10 days of 10 cent deals,” which runs until November 29, was announced on the Windows Blog on Friday. “For the next 10 days, you can enjoy over 1,000 of the latest Hollywood movies, blockbuster music, must-have apps, and addictive games – for only 10 cents each.”
Since all of these products are digital and not physical products, Microsoft’s wording seemed odd when it explained, “Each day will have new deals and some of them may go fast, so make sure you visit the Windows Store daily.” How can you run out of digital goods? Of course Microsoft doesn’t run out; it also doesn’t explain if the 10 cent deals change daily or if the company allows a certain number to be sold before ending that deal.
10 cent movies
Under movies, Microsoft advertised 10 cent rentals of Jurassic World, Terminator Genisys, and Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1. There is a catch, however, as those were the rentals deals on Friday. If you check out those titles today, then the rental fee is $5.99 for Jurassic World, $4.99 for Terminator Genisys, and $3.99 for Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1. That explains Microsoft’s wording of “some of them may go fast,” so make sure you visit the Windows Store daily.
There are still 10 cent rentals, but the selection of movies change. For example, the screenshot below shows the offering for Sunday.
10 cent games
Gamers have the most dime options. Some games like Assassin’s Creed Pirates, Hitman GO, Asphalt 7: Heat, and Angry Birds Star Wars are Xbox-enabled. The biggest sale is on Hydro Thunder Hurricane, which normally costs $9.99.
The other games can be played on Windows 10 devices. For example, Bloons TD5, which normally costs $10, can be purchased for 10 cents. Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek, Dark Arcana: The Carnival, The Island Castaway 2, and Paranormal Agency make up the next biggest price cut as each is normally priced at $6.99
10 cent music
Regarding music, Microsoft offers the selections below for a dime; other kid-friendly albums are available for a $1.
