The Xbox Series X needs no introduction. It's the most powerful and feature-packed current-gen console on the market, but it is mighty difficult to find on sale (especially by itself).

If you're a My Best Buy member, you can save an additional $50.

✅Perfect for: Those who want to play the latest and greatest Xbox games at their absolute best, with the best visual settings, resolutions, and framerates

Get an Xbox Series S for free on Cyber Monday (Expired)

[Unfortunately, the Xbox Series S deal is now over, but you can still get a free $200 Amazon Gift Card]

The free Xbox Series S is likely what drew you here, and I'll dive into why that's a great console below. But first, let's take a quick look at Verizon Fios and if it's the right internet provider for you. You do have to sign up for Verizon Fios to get this deal, after all.

To get the free Xbox Series S and $200 Amazon gift card, you have to sign up for a 1 Gig Verizon Fios plan. That plan costs $64.99 per month and gets download speeds of up to 940 Mbps. Verizon guarantees the monthly price for the service for four years.

Verizon includes both a router and a Wi-Fi extender as part of its "Whole-Home Wi-Fi" that's included with the 1 Gig plan. The router that comes with the plan supports Wi-Fi 6E. 

The Xbox Series S delivers the best value of all the current-gen consoles. But since you'll get it for free with this deal, I suppose price isn't much of a factor. The compact design of the Xbox Series S makes it easy to fit into a gaming setup or on a table.

While the Xbox Series S is not as powerful as its Xbox Series X sibling, it can handle the best Xbox games. The Xbox Series S targets 1440p resolution at 60 FPS, all while being 60% smaller than the Xbox Series S.

The Xbox Series S shines when paired with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. That subscription service gets you access to hundreds of titles that you can play natively on the console. You can also stream some of those games to the Xbox Series S, your phone, and other devices through the cloud.

You can also stream many of those games to any device with Xbox Cloud Gaming, play a ton of EA's best games through EA Play, and enjoy exclusive perks, in-game DLC, and discounts.
