Christmas gift question.

My 2 12 year old boys want the new Xbox for Christmas.
Since they are sharing it, I am considering making the big purchase.
Does anyone know where the best deal will be? I know it doesn't come out for another month or so....

My guess is maybe Black Friday there might be a sale but I am guessing there will not be much of a discount.  You may be able to buy a good bundle package though

 I would check to see if Costco will have it.

Yeah... A bundle is what I'm thinking will be the best deal, also.
I'm going to need 2 remotes... Also they said something about Xbox live. Does anyone know what that is?

I ordered mine through walmart using MyPoints, which gives me points per dollar towards gift cards, and a cash back credit card. It will be here thanksgiving weekend and I can have it ready Christmas morning.
Check into GameStop - they take game systems and games as trade-ins and credit.

Yes, my youngest dd had it but didn't use it enough to keep.  It is a monthly payment...I want to say about $20 a month.  It didn't enhance her game playing so she told me to stop it.

Either Black Friday or Cyber Monday would be your best bet for a good deal. X-Box Live is so they can play online with other people. It's about $50 a year.

$499.96

The extra controller is about $60.

Use Swagbucks to get walmart GCs.

I thought I used MyPoints but going back through my history I see I used Swagbucks - and I received 2175 points back and I also received 1500 points on my CC - which equals a little more than $25.

There aren't very many games out for it yet...I'm sure by Black Friday they will have a couple more. Highly recommend getting the XBox live - my son loves it!

We can't use old Xbox games for the new system?
