It’s that time of year again. This is the season! Time to spend your money on heavily discounted consumer goods to push the economy back into the black.
Yes, it is almost the most appropriate holiday in our country: Black Friday.
This year, Black Friday may be more important than ever for consumers. With rising inflation hitting us all where it hurts finding deals on the things we want (since we can’t find deals on the things we want need) is crucial.
So here’s the best deal I’ve seen on the Xbox Series X, and since you’re getting it through Microsoft’s 0% financing program, Xbox All Access, you’re not only saving money, you’re spreading the payments over two years.
With Xbox All Access, you essentially get the console and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (including Xbox Live with Gold so you can play games online) and instant access to hundreds of titles, many of which you can stream online rather than download. It’s a great service.
You pay for both, of course, but you get to spread those payments over 24 months, making it a lower barrier to entry for anyone looking to upgrade to this latest generation of gaming.
The deal in question is with Verizon, one of several retailers offering Xbox All Access. It’s also, at the time of writing, the only one to offer a major Black Friday deal, slashing $150 off the total price.
This means that instead of $34.99/month you pay $28.74/month. (Yes, this also means you spread the savings over 24 months, but it’s still $150 no matter how you split it).
This is a good deal! If you’re looking forward to a PS5 because of that system’s exclusivity, I totally understand. But if you don’t care Spider-Man or God of war then an Xbox Series X is a great alternative (especially if you’re into online games as features like Xbox Game Chat are really great).
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
