Best Xbox One Black Friday Deals

Black Friday Xbox Deals in 2023

Updated Nov 15, 2023 - Here's what you can expect for Xbox and Xbox One deals during Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales events this year. See how Back Market can help you save more on an Xbox any time of the year.

Xbox One console deals in 2023: what to expect

The Xbox One was released in 2013 at the premium console price point of $499 and that price stayed consistent until the Xbox Series X was released in 2020. Now, the Xbox Series X is still Microsoft's newest console with a $499 list price, but what deals can you expect on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?

Last year, TechRadar reported a few Xbox deals that could save customers up to $70 off, but they were limited to Xbox Series S consoles and bundles, Xbox games and various accessory sales. This year, we expect to see similar trends, where you'll find the biggest discounts on the older Xbox One and Xbox Series S consoles and bundle deals on the newer Xbox Series X where you can get a game, accessory or Xbox Game Pass with your console purchase.

For example, right now you can find the Xbox Series X for $489.99 ($10 off) at the Microsoft store or bundle the console with a game like Diablo IV or Forza Horizon 5 for the exact same price. Alternatively, we expect you'll find many retailers with Xbox Series S bundles starting around $249.99, which will save you about $50 plus the cost of an accessory or 3 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Offers will vary depending on the retailer.

While these Xbox prices will ultimately save you money, it's worth considering buying from trusted refurbished sites like Back Market for similar or better Xbox discounts. Currently, you can find an Xbox One S starting at $189.99* which includes a 30-day money-back guarantee and a 1-year warranty. That's an additional $50 savings or more compared to the other discounts you'll find at popular retailers.

Unfortunately, the Xbox Series X does not have a competitive refurbished discount at this time, but if you can wait, it will be worth checking again in 2024 for sales closer to $400.

Is Black Friday the best time to buy an Xbox?

Yes and no. In general, you're going to find lower Xbox prices on average among the top retailers during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. However, you probably won't find any huge discounts for a standalone Xbox console, without bundling it with a game, accessory and Xbox Game Pass.

You can definitely take advantage of these Xbox bundle deals during the Holiday season, especially if you had already planned on buying a specific game or need the Game Pass.

However, as we mentioned above, the best prices aren't exclusive to these Holiday sales events. Back Market has discounts on gaming consoles all year around, and you can usually find the lowest prices on older Xbox One X and Xbox One S models, which both come with a full 1-year warranty.
