Here is a list of all the current and upcoming Xbox Live Marketplace Sales for the USA. This includes the Deal of the Week, KINECT Central sale item(s), and any other 3rd-party sales or promotions. We have also included the upcoming Xbox Live Arcade releases in the 2nd post. Most sales are for one week. Feel free to post if you see anything not listed here.

  • All known sales and information on sales are in the OP. Major Nelson usually updates us with new sales information every other Tuesday. When offers are validated by Moderators, it will be added to the OP as time permits.
  • ALL OFFERS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE! No information within this thread can or should be construed as accurate (or still valid), therefore ...
  • Always verify Xbox Live Marketplace prices before your purchase!

XBLA Releases Coming Soon:
 
 

 
 
 
Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What do you mean by GOLD MEMBERS ONLY?
A: GOLD members are paid subscribers to Xbox Live. These deals are only available to them.

Q: I'm an XBOX LIVE FREE member, can I use a 48 hour trial to get the GOLD discount?
A: No. 48 hour codes only work for online play.

Q: What about the promotional GOLD weekends?
A: No. Those only allow online play.

Q: How long is this deal going on?
A: One week (seven days) unless otherwise noted. Most sales in the OP have start and end dates listed.

Q: I'm not seeing the sale price, what is going on?
A: If the deal is live, make sure you are logged-in to Xbox.com or your 360 with a GOLD account. Sometimes there is a disconnect between Xbox.com and the Xbox Dashboard.

Q: When do the deals go live?
A: Deal of the Week deals go live on Tuesday morning usually around 9am EST. (Monday's before 3/22/11)

Q: What about all the other sales and promos?
A: Microsoft has gotten into the habit of offering other sales and promos as well as the Deal of the Week. They are listed in this thread to reduce clutter on the Deals Forum and to help maximize your savings.

Q: Should I have any concerns about waiting to buying something on sale?
A: After a few years of experience with Xbox LIVE, ReddJoey thinks you might want to know:
-Items can be pulled from Xbox.com with little or no notice (Games, Content, DLC)
-If you wait for an item to go on sale, it might never come (and the item(s) could be pulled)
-End dates can be flimsy. This could mean the sale is cut a bit short (RARE) or run a bit over (Happening more often). Don't count on this happening if you are on the fence. You might miss the sale.
-Consider keeping 800-1200 points on reserve for a 1-Day sale. They are rare, but you will kick yourself if you miss it

Q: What if I don't see a sale/promo listed here?
A: Post it or feel free to update the OP, as it is wikified and anyone can edit it.

Q: Are there any other links I should know about?
A: Yes.
CAG Xbox 360 Forum - Discussion on games and lots of gaming groups to join.
CAG Xbox Live Free Stuff Thread - Great thread and discussion of the free things on Xbox Live
CAG Xbox Live Subscription Thread - Great thread about the deals for Xbox Live on the dashboard
CAG Xbox Live Code Trading Thread- CAGs trading XBL codes.
CAG Xbox Live Achievement Trading & Discussion Group - A group dedicated to XBL achievements. Join up with other people who are in need of the same achievements you are.

List of XBLA games that haven't been on sale (2010-Present)

Q: What are your sources?
A: Sources:
-Majornelson.com
-Xbox UK DotW
-Xbox US DotW
-Xbox JP DotW
-Spylon's Xbox Live Database
-Various Publications/Blogs

Q: Do you mind if I copy this info and post it somewhere else?
A: Not really, but please respect the hard work that the CAG Community puts into assembling these deals each week, and please mention where you got it from and not just straight copy/paste the posts.

Q: Do you have a list of the older sales?
A: Yes. I'm not sure if it includes every single sale since the beginning of Deal of the Week in 2008 & 2009, but it's pretty comprehensive up until 7/23/2012.

Q: I noticed some talk about "compilation discs?" What is that and is it cheaper?
A: Some of the content from Xbox Live has been put on retail discs. Some discs have XBLA games, others have several pieces of DLC from one game. Depending on what content you are looking for it you might want to consider looking for a retail disc. Some CAGs and ReddJoey have put together this handy list. When an item that can be found on one of these disc goes on sale, a disc vs D/L discussion will likely come up in the thread.

Discs with XBL DLC:

Yeah, it sucks.  I find if I change the status to "Change Notifications to Weekly Digest" then click update status, then change the status to "Stop receiving notifications" then it actually works.

Oh, and I also fucked up the 2nd post.  So if you are using the light background, sorry.  :(  Maybe I'll fix it at some point.  It's all still perfectly readable, it just looks really weird.

 

If you use the dark background, everything should look normal.

New thread. Cool. I wonder if this will be the last one since the One wont have the Arcade platform. I suppose the 360 will still be around but no one will care anymore. At least I won't be as interested in it.

Good points.  I'd assume the Xbox One will still have lots of digital only sales that will necessitate a full thread, especially as more and more releases come out.  Someone else will have to take over that thread, as I won't be getting an Xbone any time soon.

 

My guess is that the 360 DotW will still continue for a while after the One launches, but certainly the deals we see on the 360 will dwindle over time...

I'm hoping after Xbone is out for a while they discount the $#%@ outta everything on 360 to make a last bit of money :)

I think this thread will still be popular for a while after the X1 release (provided MS continues with the sales). There are plenty of games that I still want (need?) to play on the 360.
