These next few weeks will be the best time yet to buy an Xbox One S, thanks to some pre-holiday-shopping incentives from Microsoft. Everyone who buys an Xbox One S bundle in the US from now through October 29 will get a free three-month Xbox Live Gold membership. Even if you miss that, you can still get a $20 discount toward the purchase of Gears of War 4 (opens in new tab) if you buy an Xbox One S or original Xbox One bundle by November 11.
Microsoft didn't announce any new bundles to go along with the promotion, but there are already selections for Battlefield 1 (opens in new tab), Gears of War 4, FIFA 17 (opens in new tab), and even Minecraft. If you're not sold on any of those games it may be worth waiting to see what other bundles and deals Microsoft will roll out for the holidays; the company has established a fine holiday tradition of sweetening the deal for potential Xbox buyers and I suspect more is yet to come.
