Microsoft Microsoft: Get a FREE Xbox Stereo Headset with Xbox Series S Consoles Get a FREE Headset with Xbox Series S Consoles!

get this deal

Game all summer with a new deal from Microsoft, where you'll get a free Xbox Stereo Headset with any Xbox Series S console – a value of $74.99.

Both the standalone Xbox Series S console and the Fortnite & Rocket League Bundle are eligible for the free headset – the Fortnite bundle provides a slightly better bang for your buck, as it also comes with digital extras including 1000 Fortnite V-bucks, 1000 Rocket League Credits and a Midnight Drive add-on pack for both games.

While not an outright discount, this offer is a very good deal for the Xbox Series S, which has been lauded as one of the best gaming deals when paired with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription for unlimited access to over 350 games.

This offer is available online until June 5 and both Xbox Series S bundles qualify for free shipping.


Posted May 4: Xbox Series X Consoles Are Back in Stock

Get your next-gen Xbox straight from the source at Microsoft, where Xbox Series X consoles are back in stock.

Standalone consoles are (still) in stock as of May 4, making this drop one of the longest of 2022 and one of the few where you don't have to purchase additional accessories in a bundle to get the Xbox Series X. Limited quantities are available and for reference, Xbox Series X re-stocks have been more frequent in 2022, but still typically sell out within 48 hours of availability.

Originally launched in November 2020, the Xbox Series X|S are Microsoft's successors to the Xbox One. The flagship Series X is capable of playing next-gen games at up to 4K and includes a built-in Blu-ray drive, while the all-digital Series S can play next-gen games at up to 1440p.

Xbox Series X consoles are available online only while supplies last and qualify for free shipping from Microsoft.

Out of stock? Read our roundup of Where to Buy the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X in Canada to see where else you might find the console.

    • I got this headset for my son for christmas because he does XBOX and PC. He says it's been great and showed me how you twist the ears for volume controls, and I think one just changes the voices you hear and the other does the game sounds/music. Great feature since sometimes you just get one guy with a crazy loud voice and don't want to mess around with fine-tuning your volume settings mid-game. I paid $399 for the series-s and I like it fine but series-x might be more your style.

    • Solid deal.

      Doubt we'll see any price decreases for a while and instead see a lot of pack-in bundles. And you're getting the 20th Anniversary Edition of the headset, which may mean nothing to some people, but I think it looks pretty cool (I had a translucent N64 and OG Xbox lol)

      However the best way to get a console in my opinion at the moment is by using or taking advantage of the PC Optimum program.

      I got both next gen consoles (Series X and PS5) from pre-ordering at Shopper's before launch (note I had over 1M points lol) so I just used points then paid the tax.

      I'll grab a Series S someday as well and likely through points again.

      Yeah that feature is called the chat mixer.

      I have the wireless version with Atmos, etc and the headset is actually really great once calibrated correctly.

      And like you mentioned the chat mixer adjustment is amazing on it, such a no brainer way to do it (rotating the left ear cup for more chat or game sound - right cup adjusts volume).

      What do you mean by "PC card" . The loyalty card by shoppers? Then if you buy through shoppers you get a lot of points in return which can be used later? I think if thats the case, then such deals would be once a year.

      That way too, but I was talking redeeming.

      There's a few ways you could do it. The key is finding what you want in stock.

      1) pay normally with money and get all the points from the purchase (ideally using a 20x points offer). Can get lucrative depending on if and what PC Financial CC you have. Program base offers 15 pts/$ at Shopper's with various CCs bumping that up to a max of 45 pts/$ with the PC World Elite CC.

      2) pay any day of the week with points straight up (max allowable is 500k points redeemed at once which = $500, so anything more than $500 you'd have to pay outta pocket. Here you'd just need 379k points.

      3) pay specifically on a mega redemption event or points back event. So your points are worth more (250k points = $400)

      4) pay with either points or cash specifically on Senior's Day and get 20% off. $379 minus 20% = $303. So either need 303k points or pay $303.

      Personally I did the #2 as there were no redemption events coming up but I did have a 20x the points offer so still got chunk of money back in points for what I had to pay beyond the 500$.

      Sorry for the wall of text lol.

      and I have seen some of these Series S consoles on ebay and kijji going for 250 CAD. Seller would mention barely used probably because they were released a year or 2 back. Anything wrong in going that way verses purchasing new? In pictures they look almost new.

      Always some risk inherent with eBay and Kijiji but for this item you'd probably be okay. Just do due diligence.

      I've seen a bunch in my area too for around that price so lots of people offloading them I imagine.

      Does he have a lot of Xbox 360 or Xbox one Games in disc? If yes, get Xbox series X as the S does not use discs. I've seen so many being returned to best buy because employees don't warn the parents about that.

    • I bought a Series S on Kijiji for $200 a few weeks ago. As someone who mostly games on PC, I'm surprised these things are as cheap as they are. I hooked it up to a 1440p 165hz display (running at 120 of course) and it runs some games smoother than my PC with a 6700XT. Quick resume is a game changer in my mind. It basically means launching games takes 5 seconds; no main menus or loading into saves. You're right where you left off. I'm barely using my PC for gaming at all. The S is so small and light I'd call it portable even. You can carry it, the 2 cables and a controller easily in one trip. I should've bought this before sinking money into a GPU.

      Maybe I'm just getting old and console gaming is making more sense. As people said though, find a decent example on Kijiji because you can probably get it close to half off. Be careful of people marketing the One S as a Series S (almost fell for that).

      Which games does the Series S run better than a 6700XT? This is very suspicious because my Series runs like a potato compared to my 5700XT, there isn't a single game that runs better on the console for me.

      It's a very good deal for someone who doesn't game a lot and/or considering buying a last gen console imo.

      xScreen is sold out for now, but that will make your S even more portable.

      The guy makes some edits after the fact but I think they are all in the main post.

      Keep in mind two things:
      1) if you're using Atmos it will stack on top of the Xbox's built in audio equalizer (he goes over this)
      2) if you're using Atmos for headset you have to have the license (10$ I think) but it's free for your speaker set up.

    • If these supported standard NVMe SSDs, I'd grab one, but the prices on the Seagate proprietary drives are absolutely insane.

      It's like the Vita all over again.

    • Can I return the headphones later in order to get the series s at 312$ (that's what the price comes to when 379 is broken down between the console and the headphones). I don't really need the headphones
