Over the last few months, the US Microsoft Store has been offering recurrent discounts on the Microsoft Band 2. Earlier in May, the company renewed a $75 price cut on the fitness band, making it available for $174.99 until July 9. However, according to a new report from Neowin, Microsoft has decided to extend this latest deal in the US and those of you interested in the wearable device will be able to get it at this same discounted price until July 31.
As of today, both Best Buy and Amazon are also selling the Microsoft Band 2 for $174.99, with even lower prices if you choose a medium or small band size. Two weeks ago, we reported that Microsoft could be currently getting rid of stock before the launch of the rumored Microsoft Band 3, which looks plausible as the Microsoft Band 2 was released back in October 2015. Last week, Microsoft’s Corporate VP of devices may also have mistakenly revealed the new wearable device during a tour of the company’s Surface Lab.
