For those who never did get their hands on a spanking-new Xbox console, now you can make up for lost time — for less. In honor of Cyber Monday, and to help you get a jump start on your holiday shopping, you can grab Microsoft’s entry-level Xbox Series S at its lowest price ever.

We love the Xbox Series S for its next-gen performance and well-stocked game library. And now you can get it at this never-before-seen discount.

The Series S has dropped to as low as $240 during the big sales weekend, and some retailers are offering bonuses to help you get even more value out of your new console. For example, Amazon is selling the console for $240 with a free $40 gift card (use the code XBOX at checkout), while Target is offering the system for $250 but with a bigger $50 Target credit. If you shop at either of those retailers often, those deals are your best bets.

The Xbox Series S is the best overall value in console gaming, and though it may not be as fully realized as the more expensive Xbox Series X for $500, you’ll still get a super-quick solid-state drive (SSD) inside a smaller, modern, more easy to maneuver body. You also get up to 120 frames per second and 1440p resolution for crisp, smooth gameplay.

Without a disc drive, you’ll be all digital with the Series S, and most games have almost zero loading times. We especially like the Quick Resume feature, which lets you immediately switch between whatever games you might have open and pick up right where you left off.

In addition, Microsoft is offering up to 30% off on select accessories like this $40 Xbox Wireless Controller (previously $60) as well as a discount on a selection of Xbox games.
