The Xbox Series S was successful until Black Friday, surpassing sales of the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, according to recent reports. That’s no surprise, with Microsoft’s Â£ 250 console offering next-gen games at a fraction of the cost, on top of being the only console actually available throughout the shopping season. While high demand and supply constraints pose challenges for the availability of the Xbox Series X and PS5, the Xbox Series S is a little easier to find if you know where to look.
The Xbox Series S probably won’t be shipping anytime soon – but with some deal-seeking know-how, you can now save Â£ 25 for Cyber ââMonday. The trick revolves around CDKeys from key online retailers, with ongoing promotion 10% off Â£ 50 Xbox gift cards. You can pick up five of these cards for Â£ 44.99, which translates to Â£ 250 in Microsoft Store Credit.
That means you can win an Xbox Series S for Â£ 224.95, saving 10% off the regular Â£ 250. Microsoft has just restocked the Xbox Series S Fortnite & Rocket League Bundle, a new Xbox Series S package that includes a ton of bonus DLC at no additional cost.
To take advantage of this Cyber ââMonday trick, stock up on five Â£ 50 Xbox gift cards through CDKeys, before visiting Microsoft’s code redemption portal at redeem.microsoft.com to apply the full credit to your Microsoft account.

Fortnite and Rocket League Xbox Series S Pack
The affordable Xbox Series S console from Microsoft offers a slice of Xbox Series X at a lower cost, with new and improved hardware, lightning-fast load times, and support for the next generation of games. However, this backup comes with some tradeoffs, limiting you to HD games without a disc drive. This makes it better suited for Xbox Game Pass and digital games. The Fortnite and Rocket League Special Edition Pack also includes bonus DLC in the price.
Â£ 249.99 at Microsoft UK
As spotted via Promotional offers, it’s the closest yet to a formal discount on the new Xbox Series S. The Xbox Series S presents an affordable entry point into the latest Xbox family of consoles, positioned alongside the flagship Xbox Series X Microsoft designed the device to mirror the Xbox Series X, although targeting HD gaming rather than full 4K. It’s based on the same CPU and GPU architecture, albeit scaled down with lower raw processing capabilities, with the same high-speed SSD storage technology for faster load times with support for more complex games.
The Xbox Series S plays all of the same games as the Xbox Series X, including Microsoft Flight Simulator and future titles that shouldn’t hit older Xbox One consoles. It also offers exclusive new features like FPS Boost, designed to improve backward compatible Xbox games, and supports the same accessories as Xbox One and Xbox Series X consoles.
However, this is a digital-only device, which means there is no optical disc drive instead. That’s not a problem, as long as you stick to digital games or invest in services like Xbox Game Pass with a Netflix-style title rotation. The current model on the market comes with a 512GB SSD to fill, but Microsoft makes it easy to expand your Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S storage with a USB hard drive.
