New Holiday Promotion: Buy an Xbox One S, Get a Free Xbox Wireless Controller

While the best of the holiday Xbox promotions may be behind us, this new promotion comes pretty close: It provides new Xbox One S buyers with a free Xbox Wireless Controller. That’s a $60 savings, assuming you need two controllers.

“When you buy any new Xbox One or Xbox One S console from December 4 through December 10, you’ll get a new Xbox Wireless Controller at no additional cost,” Microsoft’s Will Tuttle explains. “The new Xbox Wireless Controller works with any Xbox One console and features enhanced comfort and feel with textured grip, improved wireless range and Bluetooth technology for gaming on Windows 10 devices.”

The nicest thing about this deal, perhaps, is that it’s not limited to Microsoft Store: You will also get it at participating retailers like Amazon, Target, GameStop, Best Buy,, and others, Microsoft says.

That said, it’s not clear if this offer is US-only—I’d imagine so—which I know is a sore spot for Microsoft’s international customers.
