Should You Buy an Xbox One on Black Friday 2023?

Updated on 10 November 2023

Published November 10, 2023 - Black Friday or not, we have the best Xbox One deals all year long. Here's what to consider when you're looking for the best Xbox One deal this Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

Black Friday Xbox One deals, all year long

Even though the Xbox One is no longer the newest console from Microsoft, it’s perhaps the best Xbox to buy this fall. Why? While the newer Series X is impressive in terms of graphics, the Xbox One delivers solid performance at an affordable price. Plus, you can continue to play all your favourite games on it, since the Xbox one will still receive all the newest game releases through at least 2023.

You can find Xbox One deals year round at Back Market. We offer the best possible prices even when it isn't Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

Following the release of Microsoft's Xbox Series X, you can expect to find Xbox One consoles at even lower prices. If you're in the market for an Xbox console, here are some more tips for getting a great deal on Black Friday or any day of the year.

Where can I find the cheapest Xbox One consoles on Black Friday?

No matter which model you're looking for, a refurbished Xbox costs a lot less than a new one. At Back Market, all used and refurbished Xbox consoles are professionally repaired and tested to ensure that they work as well as new ones. Every device is held to our high quality standards and guaranteed to be 100% functional. Whether you're looking for Xbox deals on Black Friday or any other day, you'll find the best possible prices and highest quality at Back Market.

Is it better to buy a used or refurbished Xbox?

There are a lot of moving parts inside the Xbox One, especially if the version you’re buying still has a CD tray. If you've owned and fixed a few Xbox consoles, then you might know it's a tricky process. Why take the risk of buying a used Xbox that hasn't been professionally refurbished when you can buy an expertly renewed console on Back Market? Not only do we hand-pick the best refurbishers in the game, every purchase comes with a 12-month warranty and 30 days to change your mind.

How much is a refurbished Xbox One on Black Friday?

You can find deals on the Xbox One S starting around £180 at Back Market (prices checked on 10/11/2023). That's a savings of 58% compared to a new one when released. If you're looking for the Xbox One X, we have deals starting around £197 (prices checked on 10/11/2023). That price of 56% less than the price of new!

At most major retailers, Black Friday deals rarely offer savings this big on expensive gaming consoles. Plus, buying refurbished means you can skip the crowded stores and all the stress that comes with Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping.

Is Xbox Live free?

There is a free base version of Xbox Live, but it doesn't offer many features. To play games online with friends, you'll need to buy the premium Xbox Live Gold membership. For most gamers, it doesn't make much sense to stick with the free version since playing online with others is a major part of the Xbox experience.

How much is Xbox Live on Black Friday?

In the past, Microsoft has offered Black Friday deals for Xbox Live subscriptions in late November. Currently Xbox Live Gold (now rebranded as Xbox Game Pass Core) subscription costs £6.99 per month. It's worth checking with authorised third-party retailers on Black Friday to see if there are any special deals available.

For the past few years, we've seen a Black Friday deal for a 1-month Xbox Live subscription for £1. While that's nice, we unfortunately haven't seen special deals for longer-term memberships.

Is it worth buying an Xbox One on Black Friday?

The Xbox One still has all the staples of a next-gen console like the Xbox Series X, but it's a much more accessible and affordable gaming box. Since it's been over a year since the Xbox Series X release, you'll likely see more Black Friday deals on the Series X—but that also means even better deals on the Series One.

There's a lot of debate over what the best Xbox series is, but it's important to figure out what you want in a gaming console. The best Xbox holiday deals will come and go, but you can always find great deals on gaming consoles at Back Market year-round. With all the money you'll save by buying a refurbished Xbox, you can even add accessories like a gaming headset or an extra controller!

Have an Xbox One to sell?

Get cash for your old Xbox One when you sell or trade in your gaming console with Trade-in. We'll give you an offer for your exact console, minus the hassle of dealing with flaky buyers and meeting up with strangers. Find out how much your console is worth and give it a new life.
