Where to buy the Xbox Series X on Black Friday 2021

It’s been almost impossible to get your hands on an Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S since they launched just over a year ago. And unfortunately, there’s not much good news on the way this Black Friday. You’re not likely to find any discounts on Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S consoles, as no retailers have pledged to restock the consoles — meaning it’ll likely be just as hard to find them in stock as it has been for the rest of the year. That doesn’t mean you definitely won’t be able to pick up an Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S this Black Friday, but if you do spot one available over the weekend, you should snap it up, whether it’s at a reduced price or not. Next-gen consoles are so hard to come by right now that you never know when they might next be in stock!

You can keep checking the links below throughout Black Friday to see if any retailers have Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S consoles in stock. Retailers have been announcing console restocks every once in awhile, and this Black Friday we’d recommend checking frequently throughout the day in case new stock lands:

  • Xbox Series S at Amazon
  • Xbox Series S at Best Buy

    Check Stock

  • Xbox Series X at Best Buy

  • Xbox Series S at Walmart

  • Xbox Series X at Walmart

    Check Stock

Even if you’re not lucky enough to find an Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S console in stock this Black Friday, you’ll be able to enjoy discounts on a huge range of Xbox Series X games and accessories. If a console is on your wishlist, this is the perfect time to load up on everything you need to enjoy your new console once you finally manage to bag one! Or perhaps you’re shopping the Black Friday sales for games or accessories for someone who’s already lucky enough to own a console.

Some of the best Xbox Series S and X Black Friday deals include discounts on games like Rainbow Six Siege, Back 4 Blood Ultimate Edition, and FarCry 6, as well as discounts on Xbox Series X controllers and headsets, and deals on Xbox Live Gold memberships. We’ve rounded up some of the best gifts for Xbox owners, too, if you’re struggling for inspiration. And if you’re looking for games, controllers, and accessories for the Xbox One, we’ve hunted down some of the best Black Friday Xbox One deals for you.

Best Xbox Series X deals: consoles, games, and accessories

The Xbox Series X, Microsoft's flagship video game console that's competing against Sony's PlayStation 5 and the Nintendo Switch, offers phenomenal performance with an extremely efficient cooling structure that allows it to remain surprisingly quiet while pushing out 12 teraflops of processing power. The Xbox Series X works amazing with an Xbox Game Pass subscription, which grants access to a massive library of titles that you can play as long as your membership remains active. If you're interested in Xbox Series X deals for the console, as well as its games and accessories, we've rounded up the top offers below, but since we're not sure how long they'll remain online, it's highly recommended that you make your purchases quickly.

This is your excuse to buy a temperature controlled smart mug
A black Ember Smart Mug 2 on a countertop.

There are a lot of temperature-controlled products out there, such as mugs or water bottles, but the Ember Mug was one of the first, and you can tell from its premium look and pricing. Luckily, there are still quite a few great Black Friday deals floating around, including this deal from Best Buy on the Ember Mug 2. While it usually goes for $130, you can grab it right now for just $100, which makes it a much more reasonably priced mug, if still a slightly bit expensive.

Why you should buy the Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug²
Those who like hot drinks know the struggle that comes with having a drink go cold, especially when something comes up that takes your attention away. You might make your nice cup of tea or coffee, get an email or call, and forget about it, only to come back and find it tepid or lukewarm, which is probably worse than if it was just cold. Luckily, the Ember Mug 2 does an excellent job of keeping your drink warm, with a temperature range between 120 Fahrenheit and 145 Fahrenheit. That's a pretty good range for most folks unless you love your hot drink piping hot and nearly boiling, in which case this might be a little bit on the low end for you.
