The Xbox Series S may not be the most powerful console out there, but its a perfect little machine for playing most Game Pass bangers and Xbox exclusives. And now, the Series S is available for only $150. The catch: You have to be a Verizon subscriber to take advantage of this limited-time deal.
While the Xbox Series X is by far the bigger, more powerful next-gen Xbox on the block, the Series S ain’t a slouch either. I bought one last year so my wife and I could finally play Wonderlands together without lag and annoying bugs. But it’s since gone on to become a very wonderful addition to our living room setup. Sometimes, you just want to chill on a comfy couch away from your work PC. And it’s nice having a tiny console out in the living room, loaded up with Fortnite, Diablo, and a handful of smaller Game Pass games. And for $150, it’s worth grabbing to shove into your den or bedroom, or even your bathroom. Sure, why not?
To buy an Xbox Series S for half-off, you’ll need to login to your Verizon account and head over to the company’s store. Once there, you should be given an offer to buy the Xbox for $150. Then add the Xbox to your cart and apply it to the cart. (Make sure the Xbox is in there.) Apparently, this might not work for Fios-only members, but ain’t no harm in trying.
Personally, even though I already own an Xbox Series X and S, I’m still tempted to use my Verizon account to snag up another cheap Xbox. Maybe I can fit a TV into the kitchen…?
