YMMV Target Buy and XBox One X and get an Elite Controller Free

So Target is running a deal where if you buy an XBox One X you get to “choose” a free XBox One “wireless controller. It doesn’t specify which controllers work or give a max value. The Elite controller doesn’t automatically trigger, but you may be able to get chat to assist.

I was able to purchase the XBox One X Star Wars bundle and the XBox Elite 2 controller and chat support marked down the value of the controller. Basically making the Elite controller free. The chat agent was super nice and even sent me a $10 email gift card for my trouble.

I picked up the Xbox from the store and the controller shipped out and will be here Monday. Not bad for $350.

So you got lucky with a support person. Good job, Karen.

Not really, considering the wording on the promo I wouldn’t really say luck factored in. Go off though. 887147C8-8252-47CD-A947-105E500C65EF.png

Congrats on getting that deal. I just can't get myself to buy an Xbox One X now with the new systems next year. Would rather put that money toward those when I know the Xbone X will be sitting there collecting dust at this point forward.

Yeah, if I had an XBox already I probably wouldn’t have bitten, but there are a few games on game pass I wanted to play and I haven’t bought Jedi Fallen Order yet, so it all sort of made sense. Probably would have opted for the Xbox One S if I wasn’t able to get the Elite controller with it.

Great deal because the X will get decent trade value towards Series X and the Elite 2 will be the absolute best controller at launch for that next gen console.

Did anyone else get the impression that the chat agent was a bot? It really kind of seemed that way to me.

Also wow, is that really necessary? You call that “convincing”? If you think that person was being shady and coercive, I fear to know how easily manipulated you must be.


I definitely didn’t expect to be successful, and I wasn’t going to argue. It really was odd how easily it went.

Not sure why that dude is so upset. Definitely some issues if you’re getting that upset at a stranger online.

Tried it. No dice. It's all good. Didn't need it but would have been cool!

Did you all order it first then have it corrected or just have it in your cart?

I ordered first and then contacted. I think having an actual confirmed order gives you a little bit of a leg up, but who knows.
