If you are looking to get both a new game console and a new TV at the same time, Best Buy might have something for you right now. The retailer is currently offering a special bundle in which it partners Microsoft's Xbox One together with a Samsung 40-inch Smart TV for the price of just $499.98.
The Xbox One model that's a part of this bundle is the 500GB version that comes with a free copy of Halo: The Master Chief Collection that normally sells for $349.99. The Samsung 40-inch Smart TV has a 1080p resolution, two HDMI ports, and is Wi-Fi enabled with access to apps like Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, YouTube and more. It normally sells for $429.99. Buying this special bundle will save you $280 compared to purchasing these items seperatly.
While anyone can purchase this Xbox One-Samsung TV bundle, Best Buy is marketing it to college students who are heading back to school and want an instant TV and gaming experience for their dorm room. At the moment, the bundle is only available if you buy it and then pick it up at a Best Buy retail store, but it's possible that the deal will be available for online shipment again at some point.
