Today’s best early Black Friday deals for Xbox
Black Friday Xbox Series X, Series S, One console deals
We should see more Xbox Series X deals this Black Friday as it has remained firmly in stock for a while now. The console is still high in demand so you might be able to score a bundle, but there will probably be little to no major discounts. The Series S is, however, currently enjoying a $50 discount at the Microsoft Store for US shoppers, meaning you can net one of the digital-only consoles for just $249.99! We’re unsure whether this deal will be replicated in the UK, but we’ll let you know as soon as anything gets announced.
You can check our Series X stock checker page to find which UK and US retailers are selling it, or you can click on the links below.

Xbox Black Friday accessory deals
Controllers are one of the most popular Xbox Black Friday deals to keep an eye out for. We’re also keeping our eyes open for discounts on the 1TB, 2TB and 512GB Seagate Storage Expansion Cards for Xbox Series X/S. This rather expensive SSD is the only way to increase your storage space on the Xbox Series X/S for next-gen game installs. Currently, all external hard drives (whether they’re mechanical or SSDs) can only be used to store next-gen games or run older Xbox One titles.
But what if you’re after a different console in the sales this November? As luck would have it, we’ve got pages that are all set up to host the best Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals and PS5 Black Friday offers when they become available. Make sure you check them out.
When will the best Black Friday Xbox deals start?
In the UK, retailers like Amazon UK, Game and Currys tend to launch their early Black Friday deals around a week or so before the major sales event. We recommend to start looking out for Black Friday Xbox deals from 18th November onwards. In the US, you can expect Amazon US, GameStop, Best Buy and Target to reveal their early Black Friday Xbox deals, too. In some cases, the deals leading up to Black Friday can sometimes be better than on the day itself so it’s worth keeping an eye out for early offers.

It’s highly likely that there will be Xbox Series X stock over the Black Friday period. The Xbox Series X and the Series S consoles are currently in stock at most major retailers in the UK and US. Some bundles and discounts are already beginning to pop up from time to time, which could mean there will be similar offers on Black Friday.

It’s too early to tell who will have the best Black Friday Xbox Series X deals, but we recommend checking Amazon UK, Very, John Lewis, Game and Microsoft in the UK, or Amazon, GameStop, Best Buy and Walmart in the US. Some of the best deals to look out for will be discounts on the standalone console, or bundles that come with discounted games and/or accessories like an extra controller or a game that isn’t on Game Pass.

This could all change, however, depending on whether Microsoft decides to match PlayStation’s PS5 price increase. There are no Black Friday Xbox Series X deals right now, but we’ll update you with prices closer to the date.

Those of you with an Xbox Series S will want to check out Amazon and the Microsoft Store for discounts on digital Xbox games.
