Christmas may be over, but Microsoft isn’t finished on the holiday deals. From December 25th to 31st, purchase of the Xbox One comes with a “free gift.” The item varies depending on the store, but each has a pretty good offer.
As well as games and accessories, most retailers are giving away a $50 gift card. Users can use it to buy further games or accessories, making this a pretty good deal.
Xbox One S Deal Details
Naturally, Microsoft hasn’t been able to get every retailer on board. However, most of the major US ones are there. Here’s what each is offering:
- Best Buy, Amazon, or Walmart.com: Free Xbox Wireless Controller
- GameStop: Free Xbox Stereo Headset (white/black)
- Target and Microsoft: Free game of your choice
Despite this list, the only deal I’m seeing on the Target is a free controller. However, Microsoft is definitely running the deal, and you can choose between the following:
- Watch Dogs (save $19.99)
- Just Dance 2016 (save $39.99)
- Just Dance: Disney Party (save $19.99)
- Hasbro Family Fun Pack (save $29.99)
- Assassin’s Creed Syndicate (save $29.99)
- Fifa 17 (save $59.99)
- Gears of War 4 (save $59.99)
- Forza Horizon (save $59.99)
Madden NFL 17 (save $59.99)
- Battleborn (save $59.99)
- Mirror’s Edge Catalyst (save $39.99)
- ReCore (save $39.99)
- Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (save $59.99)
- Just Cause 3 (save $59.99)
- Killer Instinct Combo Breaker Pack (save $19.99)
There are some worthwhile games here, and the offer covers almost every genre. It’s currently available with the Battlefield One, Minecraft and Gears of 4 bundles, and you’ll also get a free copy of The Crew thrown in.
With the holiday season coming to a close, this might be the best offer we see for a while. However, it’s fairly clear what Microsoft’s tactic is.
Project Scorpio is due for release in 2017, and reports indicate that it will be better than the One S in every way. Though it will be more expensive, this is a good opportunity for Microsoft to dump its stock before release, as well as the extra they’ve accumulated over Christmas.
You can pick up an Xbox One, The Crew, a free game and a $50 gift code from the Microsoft Store.
