Xbox One 1TB Elite Bundle + $75 Microsoft Gift Card & 1 extra game $499 shipped ($600+ value), more

Update (2/9 11:22am): Trusted game dealer Antonline is offering the Xbox One 1TB Holiday Value Bundle and a 1 Year Xbox Live Membership Card for $349 shipped ($440 value or so). While this is the lowest out-of-pocket price on a 1TB we can find, you may find better value in the $399 + $75 gift card bundle deals below.

As a limited time offer, Microsoft Store is currently offering a $75 Microsoft gift card and an extra game of your choice (Watch Dogs, The Crew or Assassin’s Creed Unity) with select Xbox One bundles. Today’s deal on the $499 Elite 1TB bundle is quite notable. It dipped down to $450 or so over the holidays and a couple times since, but with the $75 credit and free game ($15 to $30 value), this is one of the best prices we have tracked ($400 – $410 effective price depending on the extra game you choose at checkout). Over at Amazon it will run you $499 with a $30 Amazon gift card or $463 on its own.

The Gears of War bundle for $349 with the $75 credit and free game is roughly a $454 value, but you might want to consider Amazon’s deal instead. It includes the same Xbox One bundle with the much newer Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Forza Horizon 2 and arguably a more valuable $30 Amazon gift card for the same price, which is about a $469 value.

Or just grab $100 worth of Xbox gift cards for $81 shipped (19% off) over at Best Buy and this month’s Xbox Live freebies are right here. The rest of our game deals can be found in our daily roundups.

Best Buy is currently offering a 3-pack of $15 Microsoft Xbox gift cards right now with a $5 bonus card for $45 shipped. That’s basically $50 worth of credit for $45, but things get much more interesting if you scoop up two of them.

By adding two of these gift card packs to your cart ($100 worth of gift cards), your total drops to just $81 shipped. That’s nearly 20% off your next Xbox marketplace purchases and one of the lowest prices we see gift cards from any retailer drop to.

Best Buy is also offering BOGO 20% off on prepaid game cards like PlayStation Store gift cards, Facebook game cards, Xbox Live, and Nintendo e-Shop credit and more. Simply head to this page, check one card from the top list and then one from the bottom to redeem the discount.
