In case you’re planning to purchase a new Xbox One or Xbox One S console this holiday season, we have some great news for you. Microsoft has announced that anyone buying a new Xbox One or Xbox One S from December 25th through December 31st in the United States will receive a gift at no extra cost. The gifts differ depending on the retailer you purchase your console from.
If you purchase your new Xbox console from Best Buy, Amazon, or Walmart, you will be eligible to receive a free Xbox Wireless Controller. Those of you who purchase at GameStop will be getting a free Xbox Stereo Headset in either white or black. For purchases made at Microsoft stores or Target, Microsoft will let you choose a free game to build your gaming collection.
In addition to the above gifts, most retailers are also giving buyers a $50 gift card as an online-only deal. So, depending on which gift interests you more, we recommend that you visit your preferred retailer before the promotion period ends.
While the deal is great news for consumers, Microsoft must be hoping that the deal helps them regain the No.1 selling console title from the PS4. The Xbox One had been leading the US console sales charts for most of 2016, but the PS4 snatched the No.1 spot from the Xbox One last month after a long time.
