This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2019, your source for the season’s best gifts and deals, hand-picked by the experts at CNET.

Wakey wakey, it’s Cyber Monday! Just kidding, we know you’re a gamer and gamers never sleep. Many of the best deals from Black Friday are still available, with even more to come as Monday kicks off in earnest. We’ve picked the best discounts on Xbox One X and Xbox One S from around the web, which you can get right now without waiting for Monday morning.

With that preamble out of the way, here are the best Xbox One bundles we’ve found so far. The deals below are listed for specific retailers, but we expect similar deals and savings to be widely available. And when you’re done here, be sure to check out the best Xbox deals over at GameSpot.


Deals don’t get much better than this — not only is the Xbox One S (a more powerful edition than the original Xbox One, although currently outranked by the Xbox One X) on sale for more than a hundred dollars off the regular price, but entering the code DECSAVE19 at checkout gets first-time shoppers an additional $20 off.

For die-hard Star Wars fans, this is the deal to beat. Jedi: Fallen Order received enthusiastic reviews, and there probably isn’t a better console to play it on than the Xbox One X in UHD 4K. The Deluxe Edition of the game features some premium in-game skins and 90 minutes of behind-the-scenes video content. The bundle also includes three months of Xbox Live Gold.

There’s not as much going on under the hood of an Xbox One S compared to the One X, but the difference in performance comes with a great discount. We love this deal because it lands you Jedi: Fallen Order and a new Xbox for almost half the cost of the Xbox One X deal above. You can also get it at Target with $40 in Target bucks thrown in.

Gears 5 is a stunner of a game, and you can get it bundled with Microsoft’s beefiest console for $350. Get it at Target, and the store is throwing in $40 in Target bucks, which should cover all the Mr. Pibb and Red Vines you’ll need while you’re playing.

This is the all-digital edition, which means there’s no optical drive. If you’re ready for the 21st century, in which we download all our games, this might be a great deal to snap up. This bundle includes download codes for Minecraft, Sea of Thieves and Fortnite, with $20 worth of V-Bucks, as well as a month of Xbox Live Gold. (Be aware that some games, like Sea of Thieves, require an ongoing Xbox Live Gold subscription for play.)

No more playing by yourself. This Xbox One S console has a 1TB drive and comes with a pair of controllers so you can play with a friend. The bundle also comes with a three-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which includes Xbox Live Gold and the ability to download over 100 digital games. 

Available to Costco members through Dec. 2 while supplies last.
