If you're looking for a dirt-cheap gaming console for yourself, a family member, or maybe a recent graduate, Newegg is running a fantastic deal on the Xbox One S. Via Newegg's eBay Store, the Xbox One S is currently priced at a reasonable $199.
However, if you add the console to your cart and go through the checkout process, the price drops by another $29.85 bringing the total price to a red hot $169.15 (before any applicable sales tax, depending on your state). That's near Black Friday level pricing for the Xbox One S, but it actually gets even better.
For select eBay accounts, eBay's equally hot eBay Bucks promotional period is ending today that gives you 8 percent back if you purchase using a browser, or 13 percent back if you use the eBay mobile app (iOS or Android). So not only are you looking at an out-of-pocket cost of $169.15, but you'll also get back [up to] $21.99 in eBay Bucks that you can use on a future eBay purchase as well.
The Xbox One S isn't the most powerful console currently on the market -- that title belongs to the Xbox One X -- but it is still a highly versatile machine that will playback all of your Xbox One games (and backwards compatible titles) while letting you enjoy 4K content. And we can't forget about the integrated Blu-ray drive and future access to xCloud game streaming.
Considering that Project Scarlett is still more than a year away, this deal on the Xbox One is more than enough to hold you over until then. You can access the Newegg deal (via eBay) right here.
