Two retailers are aiming to aggressively push out Xbox Ones to last-minute holiday shoppers, as both Target and the Microsoft Store are reviving (and beating out in some sense) their Black Friday deals on the Xbox One.
Target is throwing in a $70 gift card on purchases of the Xbox One Assassin’s Creed Unity bundle for $349.99 (which includes a digital copy of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag as well).
Microsoft is offering the same price of $349.99, although its offered gift card is a lower $50. We suspect inventory will last longer on Microsoft Store’s offering.
Both of these deals were available in one form or another during the busy holiday season earlier this month. For Target, they were offering the bundle at a slightly lower price of $329.99, but the gift card was only $50. As for the Microsoft Store, the offer was a choice of one additional free game in lieu of the $50 gift card.
Both retailers will ship in time for Christmas, provided you make your purchase in time. (Check your shipping time frame before you checkout.) In the case of Target, you can also order online to pick-up in store.
One last note: this is a part of Microsoft’s push to make last minute sales on the Xbox One, where many other retailers are also offering the $50 gift card incentive. But Target is offering an additional $20 – not bad!
