Microsoft’s latest Xbox console, the Xbox One X, promises and delivers a range of improvements, including 4K and HDR support, faster load times, and more. For some though, the price is a sticking point. Not only is there the console itself to think about, but also if you need to upgrade to a 4K HDR monitor/TV that supports the enhancements.
Lucky for some however, there is a method to get an Xbox One X for a mere $348, in some cases even less. Discovered by Calebd2 on Reddit, the method works by making use of various reward and payback programs in order to reduce the overall cost of the console. Be warned, the method can take several days before you’re able to order the console. Let’s get into it…
To start with, you’ll need a Samsung Galaxy device running Android. Through this, you’ll have access to Samsung Pay. All you need to do is purchase 10 $50 Xbox Gift Cards. They are 20% off when purchased through Samsung Pay, but there’s a limit of 2 orders per day, so it cane take up to 5 days (or you can get a friend to purchase some, too). This will cost $400, but you’ll receive $500 in Xbox Credit.
When making the first purchase, use code “REWARD” to receive $5 off of your first Samsung Pay purchase. Using a MasterCard for payment? Even better. In the Offers section, activate the $10 Amazon Gift Card offer; after 3 purchases, you’ll receive a $10 Amazon Gift Card.
Next up is TopCashback. Sign-up to TopCashback, and then go through to the Microsoft Store from within TopCashback. This will give you 8% back for the next few days, or 4% after that.
Purchase the Xbox One X from the Microsoft Store, using the Xbox Gift Cards purchased earlier.
Any extra taxes? Purchase an additional Xbox Gift Card via Samsung Pay to help lower the tax costs.
