November means it's time to check out the latest Cyber Monday Xbox Series X deals as most retailers have some incredible deals available online. So if you're still looking for the console, or maybe some discounted accessories and games, we're doing our best through the weekend. Of course, games, headsets, controllers, storage expansions, and so on will work on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles too.

Finding stock of the Series X|S consoles has been seriously tough for the last year and it will be so for quite some time yet. So if you see any stock appear for the standard MSRP (beware of scalpers!), snap it up straight away as it'll be gone in minutes. We'll round up the stores you should be checking in on regularly below too. Don't expect any discounts though.

We do expect to see some great deals on accessories and games though and we'll be highlighting the best offers from a selection of retailers with fresh deals as and when we find them right here on this page.

Where to find the best Cyber Monday Xbox Series X deals

If you want to have a browse of retailers most likely to get in the best Cyber Monday Xbox Series X deals then we've listed a handful of them below. Keep coming back to this page if you'd like to see some curated highlights from us too.

Cyber Monday Xbox Series X deals: Storage

You might have noticed your Xbox Series X or Series S really gobbles up storage capacity, especially if you're signed up to Game Pass and have been busy packing your console with loads of top titles. It's time to upgrade your capacity then. Important note though, as far as playing Series X|S title on external drives goes, the Seagate memory card expansion is your only option. Other external devices, be they SSD or regular hard drive will only let you store these new-gen games, but you can play Xbox games from them directly. That Seagate card isn't cheap though, although Cyber Monday is the perfect time to get a better deal.

Samsung T7 Portable SSD 1TB $109.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Save $60: The trusty Samsung T7 SSD series has been one of our favorites to give your Xbox a solid-state upgrade. It's slick and speedy compared to standard hard drives, reducing load times across Xbox One games and other backward compatible titles. While it can't play Xbox Series X|S games, you can still store them with lightning-fast transfer speeds to the internal SSD. While SSDs are notoriously expensive, this is the cheapest we've seen on the 1TB model. While you can find a 500GB model for even less, those Cyber Monday discounts are comparatively lackluster.

Cyber Monday Xbox Series X deals: Headsets

You can be assured that the Cyber Monday Xbox deals will see plenty of the best Xbox Series X headsets get some chunky discounts. And don't forget, gaming headsets aren't just for online multiplayer coms, they can add truly immersive 3D audio and surround sound to make your single-player games sound better than ever. They're much cheaper than a surround sound system or soundbar too and really help you enjoy your games more if your TV's speakers are a bit weak. Check out the latest prices on some of our favorite headsets below.
