Anyone else getting really bored in this lockdown? Us too, but we’ve been using all this free time to dig around for the best technology deals out there to help you find a gadget or two to occupy your mind. We think we’re onto a winner with this latest spring savings sale from Microsoft. The sale starts today (March 3) and lasts until March 14, so you’ve got a while to look over the deals and see if anything takes your fancy.

Weirdly enough for a Microsoft sale, some of the best deals to be found are those on Samsung smartphones, including the new Samsung Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus. So if you're looking for deals on the best smartphones, this is the place to be. Right now you can get the Samsung Galaxy S20 for $799.99, which is a saving of $200. You can also get $200 off on the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus, which is down from $1,199 to just $999. It's worth noting that these deals have been matched by Amazon.

You can also find savings on some of Samsung’s previous generation of smartphones if you’re looking for a bargain. The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus down to $599.99, which is a saving of $150 while the Samsung Galaxy Note10 Plus is down to just $849.99 - that’s a whopping $250 off the usual asking price, and $300 off if you go for the 512GB storage upgrade..

There are also a host of deals on some of the best laptops and tablets over during this sale, so be sure to check out everything that's on offer. We particularly like this deal on the Surface Pro 7, which is certainly one of the best tablets out there and can be picked up for just $749 in the sale, with savings of up to $200.

We’re big gamers over here, so we’re all about these latest deals on the Xbox One X, which you can grab for $299 with a game bundled in - that’s a saving of $100. There are bundles that come with either Gears 5, NBA 2K20, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order or Forza Horizon 4, so there’s something for every type of gamer.

There are also deals on a bunch of Xbox One accessories, including controllers, headsets, and external storage drives. And if you’re looking for some games to play, you can grab your first month’s subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for just $1. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is a subscription service, kind of like Netflix but for games. A subscription gives you access to hundreds of titles across both Xbox and PC. It’s pretty much the best deal in gaming, even when it’s full price, so $1 for your first month is a no brainer. There’s not obligation either, you can cancel after that month if you don’t want to keep paying the normal $15 per month fee.
