Update: All sold out! That didn’t take that long at all. Here are some other remaining Xbox One deals for the week for those interested.
Here’s a quick and awesome deal that spruce out of nowhere (and the best deals are often this way). Antonline, an authorized Microsoft distributor is selling off units of Xbox One Gears of War Ultimate Bundle for only $279.99 with an extra bonus. By the price alone that’s a pretty darn good deal for a Xbox One, as we’re approaching Black Friday pricing anytime you drop below $300.
But wait, Antonline is also throwing in a $50 eBay Gift Card. This makes the deal effectively only $229 for a BRAND NEW Xbox One, with full warranty and all. Even better news? As long as you don’t live in California or Georgia, you’ll save on sales tax too.
Shipping is free and we expect the deal to be sold out VERY SOON (probably less than a day). While we usually get a quantity count or expiration notice from eBay, this Xbox One deal had no prior warning as mentioned earlier. By our count, this is the second time this console bundle has reached the $279 price point. The last time was back in March earlier this year but it was without the $50 gift card. Making this possibly the best Xbox One deal we’ve seen thus far in 2016.
The eBay gift card appears to be a physical copy that will also arrive via mail. It’ll be good for anything on eBay, including an extra Xbox One controller, 1-year Xbox Live subscription, or a brand new Xbox One title. We suggest going with a controller since those held up in value better than game titles – and there’s always some deal or another on Xbox Live Gold membership. Note that this is a US-only deal.
If you’re reading this post after the published date, the $279 deal is most likely sold out. You can check our full Xbox One bundle deal roundup here for other good pickings.
