Grab discounted apps for Windows Phone this holiday season

Let me get this out of the way first -- the "12 Days of Red Stripe" has absolutely nothing to do with Jamaican beer. Instead, it's Microsoft's latest holiday push (named after the Windows Phone weekly deal), going with the 12 Days of Geekmas and the 12 Days of Deals previously announced. This latest campaign is designed for Windows Phone customers.

"The Windows Phone Store just kicked off a big holiday sale on twelve apps, indie games, and Xbox titles", announces Microsoft's Michael Stroh.

The apps included in the 12 Days of Red Stripe are: Modern Combat 4, Runtastic Pro, Ruzzle, Bejeweled Live, Cocktail Flow, Sunny Hillride, Rayman Jungle Run, Package Tracker, Dr. Pickaxe, Gravity Guy 2, Jack of Tools Pro and Sparkle 2. Sale prices range from $0.99 to $2.99 -- all are at least 50 percent off. There is also a similar deal currently running for PC and tablet apps.

Stroh reminds that "if you or someone you know is planning to buy a new Windows Phone this holiday, don’t forget that for a limited time Nokia and Microsoft are both offering app gift cards with the purchase of certain phone models".
