Microsoft Closes Out 2016 with a New Xbox One Sale Event

And you thought the sales were over. Nope: Microsoft is closing out 2016 with a final Xbox One sale. And it’s a good one.

“The holidays aren’t quite over yet, and we’re excited to offer yet another promotion for your last-minute shopping needs,” Microsoft’s Will Tuttle writes. “From December 25 through December 31, when you buy any new Xbox One or Xbox One S console, you’ll get an additional gift at no extra cost. The offer will be available at most major retailers in the U.S., and each gift will vary.”

Here are the possibilities.

Best Buy, Amazon or Walmart.com. Buy an Xbox One or Xbox One S and get a free Xbox Wireless Controller.

GameStop. Buy an Xbox One or Xbox One S and get a free Xbox Stereo Headset in white or black.

Target or Microsoft Stores. Buy an Xbox One or Xbox One S and build your gaming collection with a free game of your choice.

But wait, there’s more.

Additionally, most participating retailers are also offering a special online-only deal for a $50 gift card in addition to the gifts noted above.

Yikes. They must really want to beat Sony over the holidays. Whatever the reason, there’s never been a better time to buy an Xbox One. This holiday season has been crazy.

OK, back to the family…

    As if Sony isn't offering all kinds of bundles & deals.

    Apparently MS and retailers are still trying to clear out original Xbox One consoles. They must also be aiming to grab most of the holiday gift card sales. I got an Amazon gift card for Christmas.
