Xbox One X and S consoles

Microsoft’s Xbox All Access program, which offers customers affordable financing plans for the company’s latest consoles, will come to an end on New Year’s Eve. So if you’ve been really wanting to get a new console for the house for Christmas, now might be the best time to get it.

The Xbox All Access program allows customers to bundle the console with the Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass subscriptions for just $21.99 per month for the S model and $34.99 per month for the X model, making it easy for just about anyone to be able to afford one. It’s a good deal for those with credit who intend on committing to the Xbox ecosystem for the next two years, seeing as how you’ll also be getting both subscriptions during the financing term.

While it’s sad program will officially close before the year’s end, Microsoft says they will open a new program sometime in 2019, according to an email from Xbox. The company also promises it will over an expended program that will be offered to a higher volume of customers when it does reopen, however they aren’t ready to share the full details just yet.
