If you’re still looking to take advantage of a deal from Microsoft after Monday’s disappointing $99 Dell Venue 8 Pro sale, here’s some good news: Microsoft is currently selling the Nokia Lumia 520 off-contract for just $59 – a 40% discount.
The $59 price is a true bargain, even if the Lumia 520 is a budget phone. The device features a 4-inch display with a resolution of 800 x 480, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 at 1GHz, 512MB of RAM and 8GB of storage, and a 5MP rear camera. It doesn’t compare to devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 or Nokia’s own high-end Lumias, but $59 is a great deal, regardless of its humdrum specs.
The phone was listed all this week as unavailable, and while a message on the device page still reads that “this item is sold out,” customers – like myself – are able to place their orders and receive a confirmation email from Microsoft within minutes. The deal isn’t a part of Microsoft’s current 12 Days of Deals promotion, so if you’re looking to get a great phone at an even better price, hit up the source link below soon so you can take advantage of the discount.[Microsoft Store]
