Get an Xbox One for only $299, but hurry because there aren't many units left

en-INTL-PDP-Xbox-One-Console-5C5-00001-Large

If you’re looking for a deal on the Xbox One, online retailer ShopRiteDelivers is currently selling it for only $299.99 without a Kinect or any games. This is the lowest price it’s ever been at and it’s $50 cheaper than what it’s currently retailing for in the US.

Microsoft still offers an Xbox One bundle with two Assassins Creed games for only $349, so if you think you’ll be interested in playing Assassins Creed, then it may be best to go for that version since you save big on the games.

However, if you’re interested in the $50 discount, we suggest you hurry because there are 285 units still available.  These are of course brand new unopened Xbox One consoles for those of you wondering.

Of course, this deal may be limited by availability of stock. It’s quite possible that Microsoft is selling off excess inventory from the holiday sales season, so its probably wise to grab one while you can!

These are great prices for a great combination device. Don’t forget to add in the price for a type cover to your budget. The result is an irresistible combination at a great price.  I’ve been running the Windows 10 Preview on my “old” Surface Pro and I have to say I’m really excited about this new version of Windows in combination with the Surface’s form factor. Your new Surface Pro 3 will be receiving a free upgrade to Windows 10 later this year, so there’s no reason to wait!

If you’re on the fence about the Surface Pro 3, take a look at our full blown review as it may help you decide.

Microsoft's "12 Days of Deals" list allegedly leaked

Martin microsoft store

Microsoft’s yearly “12 Days of deals” promotion just kicked off yesterday with the Toshiba Encore Mini receiving a massive price cut. We’re not sure how accurate this list is, but it was posted before the Xbox deal was unveiled so it may be legitimate

  • Toshiba Tablet Encore Mini WT7 $79 + free 16GB MicroSD card. Valid 12/8 only!
  • Unlocked Blu Win HD now for $129. Valid 12/9 only!
  • $50 off any Xbox One Console + Select Game. Valid 12/10 only!
  • ASUS T100 10.1″ 1366×768 Baytrail – now for $249. Valid 12/11 only!
  • Jambox Mini now for $69 – all colors now for $69. Valid 12/12 only!
  • Call of Duty: Advance Warfare or Destiny for $29.99. Valid 12/13 only!
  • Unlocked Lumia 635 no-contract for $129. Valid 12/14 only!
  • ASUS Flip 15.6″ now for $399. Valid 12/15 only!
  • Fitbit Charge + Yurbuds now for $129. Valid 12/16 only!
  • HP Pavilion x2 10.1″ 1366×768 Atom now for $249. Valid 12/18 only
  • 12-Month Xbox Music Subscription for $49.90 (Save $50). Valid 12/19 only!

We noticed that the December 17th deal is missing from the list which makes us curious.  This list applies to the US Microsoft stores according to the first day deal which was not available in Canada, but it may be largely similar to the Canadian offerings.

There are some things that stand out here, particularly the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Destiny offering on December 13.
