Here’s some good news for the holidays. You should scan your mail account if you’re looking for an Xbox Series X. Over the last week, Microsoft has started sending out unique links to the Microsoft Store that allow you to buy an Xbox Series X bundle directly.
Microsoft has a “limited number of Xbox Series X bundles” available to “valued Microsoft customers” in the United States, according to the company.

Customers of the Microsoft Store will get the emails, and bundles will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Orders are limited to one bundle per purchase, or two bundles every 1 month, according to Microsoft. The URLs to order a bundle are one-of-a-kind and attached to a Microsoft Account, thus stock availability isn’t always guaranteed.
The emails appear to be being sent to a broad spectrum of “valued Microsoft customers,” and it might be a means for Microsoft to guarantee that part of its stock does not end up in the hands of resellers.
The major criterion would be that you’ve already purchased a product at the Microsoft Store in the United States, maybe even purchasing Xbox-related software or hardware.
You won’t be able to purchase only the console if you’re fortunate enough to get an offer to buy a bundle.
With this deal, you may choose from GTA V, Madden 22, Far Cry 6, Rust, Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, Hasbro Family Fun Pack, Insurgency Sandstorm, and Diablo 2 Resurrected, as well as a game and an extra controller.
Microsoft stated early in the year that availability of the Xbox Series X will be limited until 2022.

For over 18 months, numerous businesses have been harmed by the worldwide chip shortage. Vehicle manufacturers had to reduce output, and finding new graphics cards, Xbox consoles, and PS5s has become almost impossible.
Scalpers have further exacerbated the problem by inflating prices. Street costs for the PS5, Xbox Series X, and GPUs are still sky-high, with just an Xbox Series X going for typically $856 on eBay at present.
