Best price on XBOX one that I can buy online and won't

Customer Question

Best price on XBOX one that I can buy online and won't sell out in 5 seconds.

I'm shopping for the most affordable/best value on Xbox One or bundle and wondering if it's worth the extra $ to get a 1TB drive?

My first choice is this, but probably will buy  more affordable one:

Please post a link to the best place(s) to buy an Xbox one at the best online prices this holiday weekend. Thanks.

Hey John,
Welcome to JustAnswer!
You're chatting to Pete.

Some of the best deals available are from www.bestbuy.com ($400) and www.dealplanet.com ($378) - there are various packages and bundles available for these prices on the websites.

Thanks. Is that for the 500gb or 1TB models? Also, please address my initial question about whether the 1TB was worth the extra cost- is the average gamer going to need the extra space?

I know some retailers will offer the 500gb for $299, so was looking for something more in that range if it's a 500gb console for example.

Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

Price is for the 1TB model.

The extra cost is worth it if you do a lot of gaming - it will save you having to add extra memory in months or years to come.

Walmart, Amazon and many other major online retailers were offering XBox One 1tb systems with multiple games for $349 over the weekend. I ended up purchasing a holiday bundle with three games for $349 and got $105 off that with special offers, paid $272 with tax all told and $38 more for Forza 6 on sale.

The entire point of my question was about how to avoid overpaying, and if I'd purchased based on your info, I would have overpaid.

Hi John,

My answer was only for deals available on Wednesday.

As the week went on, of course other deals have become available.

That's why I specifically said in the original post:

"Please post a link to the best place(s) to buy an Xbox one at the best online prices this holiday weekend. Thanks."

Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

I understand, however I could only advise what deals were available at the time of the answer on Wednesday.

I have no way of knowing what new deals are going to appear in the future.

Hope that helps clarify.

Pete.
