One of Newegg's Shell Shocker deals of the day includes a $100 Xbox gift card on sale for just $90 when you use the code SSBSAZ25 during checkout. These Shell Shocker deals disappear at the end of the day, so grab a card while you can and save some money right away. This isn't a deal that needs a whole lot of explanation, right? It's free money, especially if you already spend money in the Xbox ecosystem pretty regularly. Use the card to buy movies or video games, continue subscriptions like Xbox Game Pass, and more. No catch. Just save.

The card is delivered via email as a digital code. It's sent to you after you make the purchase. You then apply the card to your Microsoft account, as long as it's U.S. based. After that, do whatever you want with the money. Buy a new game or rent a movie or two or just use it to pay some ongoing subscriptions for a while (like Game Pass or a streaming service).

Video games are getting more expensive. They've jumped up $10 in the new generation, so saving $10 now is like saving on that upcharge. Maybe there's an old game you haven't gotten yet. Well, now you can get it at a discount price and save even more because this card was reduced, too. You know you're going to want a new game at some point in the future, might as well prepare for it now and save.

Xbox Game Pass is an amazing service that is continuing to expand. If you want to play Age of Empires IV or Halo Infinite then you can use your new card to save on that subscription. After all, the full Game Pass Ultimate costs $15 a month, which can add up after a while.

Need some more ideas? Check out other ways to save using your gift card. Pretty much anything that goes through your Microsoft account can use this gift card and its subsequent savings. That includes streaming services, your Xbox Live subscription, and a number of other things.
