Grab the popcorn: Microsoft offers tasty deals on Oscar-winning movies in the Windows Store

Microsoft regularly updates its Windows Store with new deals related to apps, games, movies, TV shows and music. It kicked off the Windows Store Countdown Sale at the end of last year, slashed up to 93% off various titles in its Black Friday sale, and offered deep discounts in its "Ready, Set, Summer" promotion prior to that as well.

Last week, Microsoft revealed a rather appealing deal for The Walking Dead fans, and now with this year's Academy Awards just around the corner, the company has offered an equally - if not more - enticing deal for movie-watchers in the US.

Until Feb 27, 2017, Microsoft is offering various Oscar-winning titles for $4.99 (excluding taxes) each. To sweeten the deal further, the company will also be providing customers with $5 Windows Store gift cards for each eligible purchase. It is also very interesting to note that the discounts are valid for only the HD versions of the movies and not the SD versions, which is an added bonus.

The offer not only lists older Oscar winning movies such as The Godfather and The Sting, but also relatively new titles including Whiplash and The Hateful Eight. The full list, comprising of 32 movies can be viewed below:

  • Gladiator Extended Edition
  • The Godfather
  • Braveheart
  • The Hateful Eight
  • The Departed
  • Argo
  • Training Day
  • Birdman
  • Django Unchained
  • Saving Private Ryan
  • 12 Years a Slave
  • The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
  • Life of Pi
  • Silver Linings Playbook
  • The Silence of the Lambs
  • Dallas Buyers Club
  • Whiplash
  • Platoon
  • The King's Speech
  • Unforgiven
  • There Will Be Blood
  • The Usual Suspects
  • Schindler's List
  • Million Dollar Baby
  • A Beautiful Mind
  • Dances with Wolves
  • Wall Street
  • Gone with the Wind
  • The Sting
  • The French Connection
  • Driving Miss Daisy
  • Annie Hall

Microsoft has advised that customers will receive their $5 Windows Store cards within one week. These cards can be redeemed by May 31, 2017 and should be spent within 90 days. That said, if you're interested in the deal, it is advisable that you visit the Windows Store soon, because it will only be available until February 27, 2017 11:59 PM PST.
