At the end of May - for the fourth time in two months - Microsoft slashed 30% off the Band 2 in the US, reducing its price by $75 to $174.99.
That latest discount was due to end tomorrow, July 9; but rather than bring that deal to an end after six weeks, the company has quietly extended it instead. The small print on the Microsoft Store listing for the wearable device now states that the deal will remain available until July 31, over two months after it first began:
It's not yet clear if the Band 2 will actually return to its full $249.99 price after that date, or if the offer will simply be extended again.
Over in the UK, Microsoft launched a similar "special offer" on the Band 2, reducing its price by 25% for over two months, in a deal that was supposed to end on June 30. But instead of resuming full pricing on the device after that date, Microsoft extended the offer by a further three months.
