Microsoft Offers Xbox Series X Bundles Directly To “Valued Customers”

If you’re looking for an Xbox Series X, you might want to check your inbox. Microsoft emailed special links to the Microsoft Store over the past week that allow you to directly order an Xbox Series X bundle. Microsoft says it has a “limited supply of Xbox Series X bundles” which are available to “valued Microsoft customers” in the United States.

Emails are directed to Microsoft Store customers and bundles are available on a first come, first served basis. Microsoft limits orders to one batch per order or two batches per 30-day period. The links to order a bundle are unique and tied to a Microsoft account, and do not always guarantee that the stock is available for purchase.

A wide range of “valued Microsoft customers” appear to be receiving the emails, and this could be a way for Microsoft to ensure that some of its inventory does not end up in the hands of scalpers. The main requirement seems to be that you have ever shopped online from the US Microsoft Store and maybe even purchased some Xbox-related software or hardware.

If you’re lucky enough to receive an invitation to purchase a bundle, you won’t be able to purchase just the console itself. Microsoft is offering an additional game and controller with this offer, and you can choose between crazy 22, GTA V, Rust, Far cry 6, Hasbro Family Fun Pack, Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, Sandstorm of insurgency, and Resurrected Diablo 2.

Microsoft warned earlier this year that supply for the Xbox Series X would be limited until 2022. The global chip shortage has impacted various businesses for over 18 months now. Automakers have had to cut back on vehicle production, and it has been nearly impossible to find a stock of new graphics cards, PS5s, and Xbox consoles.

Scalpers have also made a bad situation worse by pushing up prices. Prices for the PS5, Xbox Series X, and GPU are still on the rise, with an Xbox Series X averaging $ 856 on eBay right now.
