U.S. and Canadian citizens waiting anxiously to purchase a Lumia 950 XL and jealous of European buyers getting a free Display Dock can relax a little. Microsoft is offering the same deal to the U.S. and Canada, as the following Microsoft Store screenshot can attest.
It’s looking like a Lumia 950 XL-only deal, and there’s the typical “while supplies last caveat.” Consider the following terms, though:
Valid with purchase and offer registration between 11/25/15 and 1/31/16 while supplies last. Redeem promotional code online through Microsoft Store by 2/29/16. Valid credit or debit card required at time of redemption. Visit here for full terms and conditions.
It’s fascinating that the deal starts on 11/25/2015, isn’t it? Makes one wonder if that’s when Microsoft is planning to release the Lumia 950 XL, or certainly at least no earlier than that (unless they update the terms, of course). It’s all speculation at this point, but so far that’s all we have to go by in this rather confusing and confounding release.,
We’ll keep you updated on new details as they emerge. In the meantime, if you were choosing between a Lumia 950 and 950 XL, this might just make your decision a little easier.
Update: As Joseph points out in the comments, the Terms and Conditions page states a start date of 11/20/2015 for the offer.Further reading: Display Dock, Lumia, Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL, Microsoft Store
