Xbox Series X and Series S Black Friday Deals
If you’re in the market for a new Xbox Series, you can save a bundle on new console… bundles… at Walmart. Check out what’s available above and grab whichever one strikes your fancy. There’s even an Xbox Series X and Diablo 4 bundle for just $439 which is excellent. If you’re a Best Buy Plus/ Total member you can currently also get a Series X for $399.99 + a Best Buy $50 Gift Card.
We’re not done yet either, as Microsoft has also announced we are getting more $50 off deals for Xbox Series X and Series S bundles before Black Friday proper on November 24. This will feature the Xbox Series S Starter Bundle for just $249.99, which also includes 3-months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for free alongside, which is another $45 in savings as well.
Black Friday: Xbox Controller Deals
While we originally thought Xbox controllers would only be getting a small $10 discount at most retailers, the deal is actually a lot better than that and well worth considering if you’ve been after an additional gamepad. The cheapest controller you can get right now is for $39.99 at Best Buy (see here), and its the Stellar Shift Special Edition with an MSRP of $69.99.
This will likely sell out as its such a good deal, so let’s get into what else is available in the deal as well. By the looks of things, most other controllers have dropped to at least $44.99, which is a decent $20 off the standard Xbox controller and a reasonable deal for Black Friday. Plus, this includes some of the newer color variations as well like the Astral Purple design. We’ll leave all the links you need just below.
Black Friday: Xbox Accessory Deals
Games are huge these days, so if you’re running low on storage on your Xbox Series X or S, you’re far from alone. Amazon is offering the WD Black C50 1TB Expansion Card for Xbox Series consoles at just $124.99. This marks a 17% off price reduction from its original $150 MSRP, making it the best deal we’ve encountered for a 1TB storage add-on for Xbox. It’s also currently $25 cheaper than the Seagate 1TB Expansion Card.
Xbox expansion cards are essentially NVME SSDs encased in a specialized Xbox-compatible shell. Unlike the more complex PS5 SSD installation process, which involves opening up the PS5 to access the SSD slot, the Seagate expansion card simply plugs into its dedicated port on the back of the Xbox. With this deal, you can add 1TB of storage that acts just like regular internal storage, for cheaper than normal.
Black Friday: Xbox Game Deals
Xbox Game Deals at Amazon
Amazon’s Black Friday sale is ramping up, but we’re not seeing tons of Xbox games on sale yet. We’ll keep updating the above below as new deals come online.
Xbox Game Deals at Best Buy
Best Buy has kicked off its official Black Friday sale, and as luck would have it, lots of Xbox games are on sale. See all the top deals just here.
Digital Xbox Game Deals
Microsoft’s official Xbox Black Friday sale has also gone live, dropping prices on tons of digital games.
Best Xbox Game Pass Deals for Black Friday
We all heard about the Xbox Game Pass price hike that Microsoft implemented recently. A month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate now costs $16.99, a hefty fee. But, if you weren’t aware, you can actually still circumvent this change by buying Game Pass codes from retailers like Amazon who haven’t yet increased their prices to reflect the change. Paying $44.99 isn’t a huge discount versus the $50.97 Microsoft charges, but it’s not nothing. Also, it’s very possible the price drops lower at some point during Black Friday.
