Microsoft decided to wait until a week after Black Friday to launch its incredible deal on the Xbox Series X. At Amazon and Walmart, the console sold for $349.99, the same price as the newer black Series S with 1 TB of storage, and even the same cost as the Nintendo Switch OLED. Unfortunately, this deal has ended, though the consoles are still discounted well below their normal asking price at each retailer.
This $349.99 price happening at multiple retailers is the most affordable that the Series X has sold for, and I highly doubt that it’ll drop any more before the holidays arrive. Heck, even the console bundle at Walmart that includes Diablo 4 for free is $349.99. Microsoft hasn’t shared when this deal will expire.
While Microsoft hasn’t confirmed anything about the massive leak that seemed to spoil the purported details of its disc-free Xbox Series X refresh, it’s possible that — much like Sony has recently done with its out-going PS5 model — this particular Series X model is getting priced to move, making room for a new model on shelves.
I know there will be at least some of you who may be thinking, “I just got a Series X during Black Friday. Am I screwed?” Both Amazon and Walmart don’t seem to match pricing retroactively, but you can try to make a case for yourself with customer service. Just be nice about it.
Update: The 30% sale appears to be over at Amazon, but consoles are still 14% off.
