Microsoft launches hot Xbox One X and Xbox One S sales just in time for Summer

Microsoft announced today new sales on select Xbox One S and Xbox One X models. Both sales leave you with slight savings on the usual price of the consoles, perfect for buying a new game to go alongside a new system.

The first of the sales will last from May 13 to May 19 and nets buyers a $50 savings on all Xbox One S bundles. A second sale then kicks in on May 20 to May 26 and gives buyers a free $50 gift card when buying an Xbox One X at participating retailers. With the first sales considered, you’ll be able to get a console like the 1TB PUBG Xbox One S Bundle for $249 instead of $299. The second sale also can get you a copy of the hit game State of Decay 2 at a discounted price, if using the $50 gift card.

As more college students head home for the summer, and as more students spend time on vacation, there may likely be a lot of new consoles purchased as part of the sale. Will you be picking up a console this summer? Let us know in the comments below.
