If you’ve got an Xbox One on your shopping list (several of you have mentioned this being the big ask from the kids this year), make sure you hit up the Microsoft Store for their Black Friday deals. You can grab a fantastic value bundle from them—get a refurbished XBox One, Kinect, a month of Xbox Live Gold, and two game downloads, plus you get to choose a free game once you’ve added it to your cart, for just $330.
Yes, this is a refurbished unit rather than a new one, but with all of the extras and the money you save, I think it makes a lot more sense than a new unit (which will typically run you about $400 before you’ve even picked up the Kinect, never mind getting any games).
I’m a mean mommy who isn’t buying any video games or consoles this year, but you enjoy.
i agree – buy certified used! I got this bundle a few days ago. Already received it and it looks brand new! Mine didn’t include a game though.
