$264.97 + tax (if applicable in your state) on Best Buy website with in-store pickup.

I picked up 2 sets at $252.97 + NJ tax each since I still have their Gamer Club membership which is no longer offered.

Just add all of the items to the cart and the discount should show. In store pickup is free but your local store's inventory will determine if you can pick up today or if they have to ship any of the items to the store first.

So this could be potentially super good depending on your situation. For instance, in my case, I paid $536.36 including PA tax for two of these X1S bundles. I can trade a system in to GameStop toward the X1X and a copy of RDR2 to get $250 trade credit with the promo (see other thread) bringing it down to $210). Then I can return the the X1X and game to get the $250 credit and $210 + tax back from GameStop. Then I can trade in the other X1S using GameStop's same promos again and get another $250 credit towards the X1X and RDR2. So now I have a total of $500 credit which I use to purchase the X1X and RDR2 and I still have $40 credit left over.

If you follow, I end up only spending $536.36 and get an X1X and RDR2 from GameStop, still have $40 credit at GameStop left over, I have two more copies of RDR2 and 6 months total of XBox Live from Best Buy, I get to keep the digital game codes from the Best Buy bundles and any digital codes from the GameStop purchases, the various Duracell batteries that were in the same, and all the reward points from Best Buy Rewards and GameStop Power Up rewards.

The X1X trade at GS is only good through 10/28 so you'd have to bounce around a bit and do it fast and you'd have to have a Best Buy that has everything in stock. But if you don't mind the work, it's a killer deal. Better than BF I'm sure.

Lol. Yeah I know haha, but $53x.xx is about the retail of just the XB1X system with tax in a lot of places. Believe it or not there are probably people somewhere in the universe that have paid that.

So paying what the system retails for but getting three copies of RDR2, two digital copies of NBA 2K19 from Best buy (that came with the systems in my case), a digital copy of State of Decay 2 and whatever other digital game will come with the system that I pick up from GS when I go to do the trades, six months of XBox Live, 3 more XBL 14 day trials, six new batteries, $10 in Best buy rewards, $40 in leftover GameStop credit, $10 GS rewards cash from RDR2 game purchase, and like another $30 in the usual GameStop rewards from the trades and purchase (as elite Pro) seemed like a good deal to me. Sure it takes some work but it's worth it IMO. Not for everyone I'm sure.

I got my 1X on launch day by buying $5 games from Redbox and trading them in for $10 credit at GS.  I ended up spending like $120 and my 1S to get my 1X.  I was happy with it.

$40 credit at GS is like $20 Credit elsewhere...

 

But 6 batteries and hours of running around to different stores and dealing with buying/selling multiple consoles? Oh well in that case, sold.  :lol:

 

 

 

 

wait.......... Can't you just get the  X1X with Fallout 76 *AND* RDR2 for $460 at GS anyway?

So i'd spend $460+tax, and have like $80+ more money than you to spend on the alcohol i'd need to understand why you are getting the better deal?

 

But damn.... no GS credit, and those batteries.........
