Xbox One S Deals: Extra Controller, Free Games, or $50 Gift Card

Published: August 30, 2016 3:39 PM /



Just last week, Microsoft gave us more options than just a $400 2TB Launch Edition of the Xbox One S, and now we can hunt for some Xbox One S deals. Starting Tuesday last week, the 1TB Madden NFL 17 Bundle released for $350 as did the cheaper 500GB Halo Collection Bundle for $299.99. Both of which you should probably buy on eBay instead of your typical GameStop or Best Buy. The reason? Bonuses with your new Xbox One S includes an extra gift card or extra game incentives. In fact, there is also a great 2TB bundle deal listed below.

Xbox One S 2TB, 1TB, and 500GB Deals

If you go the gift card route eBay Deals is offering the Madden 17 bundle with a $50 bonus Gift Card. You're essentially paying the same $350 as you would at any other retailer, plus pocketing an extra $50 to spend on additional games or equipment. The Gift Card is not a physical item but is instead sent via email by eBay to the email address associated with your eBay user ID.

Now if you'd just as well spend that $50 on games, there are two bundles on NewEgg's eBay store that get you the same or maybe even a better value. The Xbox One S Madden 17 Bundle had its price bumped up on NewEgg's eBay page from $350 to $370, so $20 more, and tacked on are copies of The Witcher 3 and 2016's Doom. Buying The Witcher 3 and Doom separately online would either add up to $120 if you paid full price or $68 if you got the two at their best prices online - either way the extra $20 is paid back in game savings.

The Xbox One Halo Collections bundle gets you the lowest price and even more games. In this case, NewEgg has increased the price from $300 to $329 ($29 more) and tossing in copies of Assassin's Creed Syndicate, Fallout 4, and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Buying all three of these titles would add up to either $160 full price or $72 if you bought each at its best online price. A good alternative to just paying full price for your new Xbox One S at your local GameStop.

Finally, if you want a 2TB model - the best (and only) pick would be the 2TB bundle deal with a free extra controller along with free 1 Year Xbox Live Gold membership. Both freebie bonuses that are practical and functional - after all, you will eventually need a second controller, and everyone with an Xbox will generally pick up an Xbox Live Gold account sooner rather than later.
