Probably the Best Xbox Deal You’ll Find Before Christmas
It’s not too late to get an Xbox deal for the holidays: Best Buy is offering the $250 Xbox Series S right now and adding a free Xbox Wireless Controller to the cart just in time for Christmas. The console already comes with one wireless controller, but having a second one (usually retails for between $40 and $65) feels very nice.
How do I get a Best Buy Xbox Series S offer?
When you add an Xbox Series S to your online shopping cart, Best Buy will automatically add a free Xbox Wireless Controller to your order. You can pick it up at your local store or have it delivered to your home for free by Christmas. Thanks to Best Buy’s price matching program, you can also keep an eye out for any more compelling deals you find after the fact, like this $234.99 Xbox Series S from BJ . The purchase will also have free returns until January 14, 2023.
How is Series S different from Series X?
You can think of the Series S as the little brother of the Series X. It’s smaller, has fewer features, and is cheaper. The main thing to remember is that you can play the same Xbox Series X games on Series S. Here’s what they have in common :
Just be aware of the following Xbox Series S limitations:
- You can only play digital games on Series S, meaning you can’t use physical discs. You must buy digital codes online.
- While the console advertises 500GB of space, you can only really use 364GB of space , which is between 6 and 10 games depending on their size.
- Unlike its older sibling, the Series X, you won’t get Xbox games in 4K resolution. Check out a more detailed console comparison from Wirecutter .
Sometimes procrastination has its moments; if you haven’t pressed the “buy” button for a long time, this might be the moment for you.
