It doesn't matter if you're shopping for yourself or your child, trying to find the best deal for a video game console is a matter of patience. Typically, deals and sales are reserved for the holiday season, which means you'll pay more if you buy outside of that window of time. Luckily, Amazon has a pretty killer deal going on right now that'll net you four free games if you buy an Xbox One S that's already on sale for $249.
Even though the listing says you're only saving $50.99 or 17% that doesn't include how much you're saving on the games. So let's break it down. After buying the console, you'll get an email with instructions on downloading "Ghost Recon Wildlands - Gold Edition ($99.99)," "Forza Motorsport 6 ($34.99)," "Halo 5 ($19.99)," and "Recore ($18.08)." Add up the prices for each of them and the total comes to a whopping $188.05. So you'll actually be saving closer to $239 for the whole bundle.
With a deal this good, I'm honestly tempted to get it myself—and I already own an Xbox One.
