You'll need to register with Newegg and 'join the queue' and await the email once the deal hits 100% interest, then go FAST because only those registered for the deal will be invited to purchase it and it's likely to fly out of stock at this crazy price. The 'Group Buy' deal ends if stock runs out or the group buy period ends, whichever comes first, and this is a one-day deal.

For those wondering what a WD_BLACK C50 1TB Expansion Card is, it's an add-on accessory designed to add roughly 1000GB of extra storage space to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles. It functions the same as Seagate's Xbox Storage card but features a different cosmetic design. All you have to do to install the device is plug it into the back of your Xbox console. With a whole terabyte of storage, you will no longer have to delete games and make room for your new downloads, simply plug the card in and expand your library.

The Seagate Storage Expansion Card might be sleek, but it's more expensive, and if I had to choose between that and this WD_Black card, I'm fickle. The WD_Black card just has a more visually appealing design to me. On the practical side of things, though, along with the ample storage space you're getting lightning-fast load times and a seamless integration with your Xbox, simply plug in and it's ready to use. Additionally, the card is portable. Making it easy to take your games with you wherever you go. Whether you're headed to a friend's house for a gaming night or simply want to switch between consoles, this card ensures you can access your gaming library without any hassle.

Go fast, as when I started writing the deal was only at 50% interest and it's already climbed to 67% so this is likely to go live in the next couple of hours.
