Microsoft knows it’s tax refund season, and this week they’ve baited the hook to lure you into an Xbox One. Just this week the Microsoft Store began its President’s Days sale which includes the best offers since the holiday season on Xbox One bundles from the official retailer.
They have the best deal online for seven Xbox One bundles with a bonus $75 gift card plus a free Ubisoft game (albeit they’re older titles). Two of the bundles, the Rainbow Six Siege and “Name Your Game” bundles, are brand new in 2016 and haven’t seen bonus offers as good as these, making them probably the best pick to date.
Microsoft Sale: Bonus $75 Gift Card + Free Game
The Microsoft Store hasn’t released too many details on when the sale will end. But we do know it’s part of their President’s Day sale and generally the Microsoft Store likes to run week-long promotions that end on Sunday, so the offer may not make it all the way through next week Monday (the actual President’s Day).
Other Xbox One Deals
While the Microsoft Store has a really good promotion going on a wide variety of bundles, there are other offers to consider. Best Buy, for instance, is giving away a free Midnight Forces Wireless Controller when you buy an Xbox One through them. The Controller is only a $55 bonus value though, which falls short of the $75 + free game incentive from the MS Store.
More notable in the “other” department are two Xbox One bundles on eBay. Powerseller “antonline” just began selling the 1TB Holiday Bundle (includes 3 games) for $349.99 and they’re also throwing in a bonus 12 month Xbox Live Gold Subscription card. That’s the best offer in 2016 on that particular bundle. Only one deal could top it, and that’s a certified refurbished Xbox One with 3 older games (Ryse Son of Rome, Sunset Overdrive, and Forza Motorsport 5) for only $239.99 and free shipping in the continental US.
