Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S represent some of the hottest gaming products on the market, serving up a major leap in living room entertainment. While high demand and supply shortages have meant Microsoft’s latest consoles aren’t just sitting on shelves, that could change on Amazon Prime Day. The retailer’s site-wide deal extravaganza is live from July 12 through July 13, with savings on top electronics, including gaming consoles.

Limited stock has overshadowed Microsoft's latest Xbox consoles for their first 18 months on sale — but that now seems to be changing. It’s slowly getting easier to buy a new Xbox thanks to regular restocks, with the new consoles expected to pop up at various retailers throughout the week.

The chance of deals in previous years was relatively slim, but with improved availability, that’s expected to change this Prime Day. Xbox Series S can now be found for less, following a series of smaller discounts to the console throughout 2022. Xbox Series X will likely see restocks too, with Amazon teasing new opportunities to pick up the best Xbox console on the market.

While Prime Day mostly focuses on the mega-retailer, we also expect other stores to offer hefty savings and are more likely to stock more Xbox consoles. Walmart, Best Buy, GameStop, and even Microsoft often host competing deals, all tying into a busy week for online shopping. It’s important to keep your eyes peeled, knowing how to identify the best Xbox deals through Prime Day 2022.

Best U.S. Prime Day Xbox Series X, Series S deals

As Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S availability improves across some U.S. retailers, we’re seeing the consoles receive their first major promotions. We're already rounding up the best Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S deals and restocks out there for Prime Day 2022.

The Xbox Series S has already started dropping below its usual $299 price tag in U.S. stores, with a chance of more deals to follow. Xbox Series X remains out of stock almost everywhere — Amazon is instead taking orders by invitation only, and you can sign up ahead of Prime Day right now.

Amazon’s Woot has knocked Xbox Series S down by $50, offering a sizeable saving on Microsoft’s latest Xbox console. While available for three days, most Woot deals sell out fast, making it crucial to jump on this sale fast. It’s the lowest price we’ve seen in the U.S. and Amazon Prime members get free shipping too.

With high demand for Xbox Series X, Microsoft’s own Certified Refurbished program is one of the best ways to save. These Xbox Series X consoles are generally a worthy investment, especially this early into the console lifecycle, with a "rigorous certification process” and 12-month warranty, also extendable up to three years. The best part is you’re saving around 6-7% on the usual going rate.

Xbox Series X | Request an invite for Prime Day (opens in new tab)

Microsoft's latest and greatest Xbox console remains in high demand and finding stock still proves challenging in the U.S. While we don't expect huge price cuts this Prime Day, we're expecting several restocks as availability improves. Right now Amazon takes orders by invitation only — and we recommend applying for a chance this Prime Day.

While Xbox Series S buyers can expect various deals this month, we’re not expecting the same heavy cuts on the supply-constrained Xbox Series X. Previous deals suggest we might see several discounted bundles, granting the chance to pick up an Xbox Series X and an accessory for a reduced price. Your best bets are the planned Xbox Series X restocks, providing another chance to buy while supply lasts.

Best UK Prime Day Xbox Series X, Series S deals

Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, while historically hard to find in the UK, are now regularly in stock at popular UK retailers.

In the case of Amazon, both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are available at or below their usual RRP, with speedy same-day shipping to many addresses.

Amazon Prime Day is a huge day for shopping, meaning availability could take a hit throughout the week. While we expect Xbox Series S to have a strong appearance, with potential discounts in the UK, we don't expect any huge cuts to Xbox Series X consoles at this time. The best prices on Xbox consoles right now follow below.
