Cyber Monday Xbox deals (US): Xbox Series X consoles and bundles

The Xbox Series X is currently out of stock across the US. But we have started to see stock drops more recently, and expect more ahead of Christmas, so it's always worth keeping an eye out on the links above for any updates.

With that in mind, keep this page bookmarked as we'll be updating it with where Xbox Series X stock is available – just don't expect a discount.

Cyber Monday Xbox deals (US): Xbox Series S consoles and bundles

Like the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S stock is limited, but there are a couple of deals available online. So if you're struggling to get hold of an Xbox Series X, then we suggest keeping an eye out for the more affordable Xbox Series S.

The Xbox Series S is a great entry point into next-gen gaming for those who aren't fussed about buying games digitally. The Series S doesn't have a disc tray, after all. But it's a great option if you want to avoid the sizable financial outlay required to own a full-blown next-gen console, or if you simply can get hold of the Series X.

There are, though, some drawbacks: it has significantly less storage than the Series X, prioritizes 1440p resolution for gaming, and doesn't have a 4K HD Blu-Ray drive. Check out our full Xbox Series S review to find out more, or read our Xbox Series X vs Xbox Series S comparison to see how it stacks up to Microsoft's flagship console.

Cyber Monday Xbox deals: FAQs

When will the best Xbox Series X Cyber Monday deals start in 2021?

We've started to see Xbox Series X deals crop up a bit earlier before Black Friday 2021 begins on November 26. Last year, some Xbox Series X stock was available from third parties on Amazon as early as November 18, over a week before Thanksgiving and the Black Friday sales period. 

However, such deals cost more than double that of the console's retail price of $499 / £449 / AU$749. That was likely down to the scarcity of the Xbox Series X at the time, which we expect to be less of an issue this year.

Where are the best places to find Xbox Series X Cyber Monday deals in 2021?

As always, we'll be tracking the very best Xbox Series X console deals and bundles during the entirety of Cyber Monday 2021, so be sure to keep an eye on our site and social channels for info on the best deals as soon as they drop.

To give you a brief idea of where you should be looking, Best Buy is usually a good source for console bundles in the US. However, the retailer's prices aren't always the best in this regard, often being price matched or outright beaten by competitors like Amazon.

In the UK, Game semi-frequently hosts stock drops and bundles for the Xbox Series X, and the retailer often makes use of a queue system, so it's vital to be alert if you're planning on obtaining the console through Game or similar retailers like Argos, Box and Curry's, all of which make limited stock available every so often.

There's also likely to be stock on Xbox's official website. However, we don't expect to see anything lower than retail price here. But you may be able to opt-in to the Xbox All Access program, which lets consumers purchase an Xbox Series X/S console at a lower, monthly fee. This could be a great alternative for you if you don't have the budget to outright buy the console on the day.

What Xbox Series X Cyber Monday deals do we expect to see in 2021?

We'll be honest - deals and discounts for the Xbox Series X console itself will be hard to come by on Cyber Monday, and it's not just because the console is still relatively new. Much like the PS5, Xbox Series X routinely suffers from stock shortages, with supply often not able to meet demand.

That said, deals on games, controllers, and accessories should be much easier to find, as well as some discounts on previous generation consoles like the Xbox One and Xbox One X. We saw plenty of Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One titles (many of which are optimized for the newer systems) go on sale last year, and we expect that to be the case in 2021, too.

If you're lucky enough to own an Xbox Series X already or are planning on buying one, Cyber Monday 2021 is likely going to be one of the best times to stock up on new games, and potentially a brand new controller or headset.

Buying tips

What should I look for when buying an Xbox Series X on Cyber Monday 2021?

If you're planning on buying some games in addition to an Xbox Series X console, there is a way to save yourself even more money, if you don't mind a purely digital approach.

The excellent Xbox Game Pass service allows users to access a library loaded with digital titles both big and small. From blockbusters like Gears 5 and Sea of Thieves to beloved indies like Night in the Woods and Hollow Knight, the service absolutely has something for everyone.

Xbox Game Pass is available as a monthly subscription, but we recommend opting for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which rolls in Xbox Live Gold for online play and Xbox Cloud Gaming, allowing users to play Xbox Game Pass titles on devices like mobiles and tablets.
