It seems like Microsoft always has some sort of deal at the ready to lure in new Xbox One S buyers, but the latest should prove pretty enticing. The company has announced a new offer that will net Xbox One S buyers a free gift from select U.S. retailers.

Where things get interesting is in which retailer you choose. Available at Walmart, Best Buy, GameStop or Target, the offer includes a different gift depending on which retailer you choose. Here's a look:

  • For console purchases at, get a free Xbox Wireless controller
  • For console purchases at Best Buy get a free Xbox Wireless Controller and 3 months of Xbox Live Gold
  • For console purchases at GameStop and Target, get a free $50 retailer gift card

That's not too shabby if you happen to be in the market for a new console, and it's nice to see some variety so people can pick and choose what they want. If any particular retailer piques your interest, you pick out an Xbox One S bundle starting at $249 at Microsoft now. This promo is set to run through June 24.
