I bought this after Black Friday at the same price. The build quality is good, but I returned it due to the loud fan and poor performance. The computer is far too conservative about using TurboBoost, when it gets even a tiny bit warm it will hold the CPU at its base frequency. Intel doubled the core count with the 8th gen but lowered the base frequency, so when this happens this computer is actually slower than previous-generation CPUs. This was confirmed by multiple benchmarks (see also https://slickdeals.net/f/10922567-yoga-720-13-669-after-rebate-8th-i7-16gb-512gb-lenovo-com-669 and go to around page 25 of comments for discussion of this).

To be fair, the Yoga 720 still feels reasonably snappy in day-to-day use, in part because of a fast NVME SSD. But unless you're willing to do things like undervolting (I wasn't), you're getting performance that can't even keep up with the i5-6200U or 7200U, even though the 8th-gen CPU should be much faster.

Bought one of these around BF for the same price. Good deal, well made ultrabook with touchscreen, fast CPU and metal case. And I'm not a fan of these ultra-flat keyboards, but this one's not bad.

It's not as nice as the 920 but that will run almost twice as much.

Yoga 720 or XPS 13 for $50 more at Microsoft store?

Only major spec difference is the XPS has half the size SSD, but is it's build quality better and worth it?

Oops, you're correct; however, the SSD is replaceable on both.

The XPS 13 is absolutely worth that price difference. The Yoga is well-built, but the XPS 13 has even better build quality and great battery life, if you can live with the lack of a 360-degree hinge and the misplaced webcam, which Dell hasn't fixed three years into this design, incredibly enough.
