The Xbox One's temporary $50 price cut for the 2014 holiday season runs out on Jan. 3, 2015, so this is your last week to pick up the console at that discount, Microsoft spokesperson Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb noted on his blog today.

Microsoft announced in late October that it would be slashing the price of the Xbox One by $50 as of Nov. 2. That deal applies for all consoles and bundles, dropping the price of the Kinect-free system to $349 and of various bundles to a range between $349 and $449. The promotion was likely the biggest reason the Xbox One managed to outsell the PlayStation 4 in the U.K. and U.S. during November.

The price drop continues to be available at "most major national retailers," and many stores are offering online-only deals (except Meijer, which doesn't sell products online) this week for bonuses along with purchases of Xbox One consoles. Here's a list from Major Nelson (the "$50 off" note refers to Microsoft's price cut, not an additional discount):

Microsoft's $50 off promotion expires at 11:59 p.m. PT this Saturday, Jan. 3. After that point, the stand-alone console will once again cost $399, while the system bundled with Kinect will cost $499.
