Christmas Gaming Deals: $249 Xbox One S Bundles With Free Wireless Controller, 12-Month Xbox Live Gold Membership And More
Newegg is having a Christmas sale on the Xbox One S, offering attractive console bundles with neat freebies at $249.
Christmas is almost here and most people likely have bought their gifts already, but last-minute Christmas shoppers looking for cool gaming deals are still in time for some good discounts.
The $249 Xbox One S bundles currently available on Newegg are good only until Saturday, Dec. 24, so interested customers might want to jump on the deal while it's still available. Here's what you get:
Xbox One S Bundles
Newegg's Xbox One S bundle deals go for $249 for a limited time, offering the 500 GB console, a wireless controller, a 12-month Xbox Live Gold subscription, one month of EA access and Minecraft or Battlefield 1.
It may not be the lowest price ever for the Xbox One S console, but the bundle holds great value – the wireless controller alone is worth $59.99, and so is the Xbox Live Gold one-year subscription – so it's among the best Christmas gaming deals currently available.
Xbox One S Perks
The Xbox One S is the slimmer version of Microsoft's Xbox One console and it supports high-resolution 4K content. This means that gamers can play select games in 4K, provided they also have a 4K TV as well.
In addition to 4K gaming, having 4K support on the Xbox One S also means that users can stream content from Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu and other such streaming services that offer 4K content.
Free Xbox Live Gold 12-Month Subscription
Newegg is offering the Xbox One S bundle with either Battlefield 1 or Minecraft. It's worth pointing out here that the product pages for both bundle options mention that a 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial is included. In fact, Newegg is offering a 12-Month Xbox Live Gold subscription, not just a 14-day trial, but it will not appear until you add the bundle to the cart.
Once you've selected your desired Xbox One S bundle and added it to the cart, select "View Shopping Cart" and scroll down to see the Xbox Live 12-Month Gold Membership as a free gift. Click on that and get the digital code to add it to your cart for free.
Lastly, it's worth mentioning that Newegg limits Xbox One S bundle purchases to three per customer, and neither bundle will arrive in time for Christmas.
