Should you shop these Xbox Series X games Black Friday deals or wait until Cyber Monday?

If you’re planning to buy Xbox Series X games, there’s no better time to do so than during Black Friday because of all the discounts that you can enjoy. Some gamers believe that there will be bigger price cuts come Cyber Monday, but that’s not usually the case as prices remain similar between the two events. However, there’s a chance that the stocks of the games that you’re planning to buy get depleted after Black Friday, which will make you miss out if you choose to wait until Cyber Monday.

There’s still a slight possibility that Cyber Monday prices will fall further, but what you should do is to buy what you want from Xbox Series X games Black Friday deals. If the prices go lower, you can cancel your Black Friday purchase and use the refund to buy on Cyber Monday. Either way, you’ll receive the Xbox Series X games that you purchase in time for the holidays.

Typically, with buy-two-get-one sales like this, you see a lot of older titles and the selection is pretty limited. That's not the case with  the GameStop Cyber Monday sale. All preowned Xbox One and PS4 titles are fair game, including even some of the newer releases. There's nothing special needed to take advantage of the deal either, just add all three games to your cart and the discount will automatically apply at checkout.
