How to get a free Xbox One with a new mobile phone contract

The Xbox One line of consoles might no longer be the newest tech, but it’s still a great way to experience all Microsoft’s platform has to offer thanks to the joys of Xbox Game Pass. Over 100 games accessible for just one low monthly fee? Yes, please. but what if you don’t want to get stung financially by that initial £199.99 sum?

True, you could wait around for a price cut, or hope that the gaming gods will bless you with a good Xbox one deal by the time Black Friday rolls around. An alternate method people don’t often consider, though, is picking up a FREE Xbox One as a gift, as part of their next mobile phone contract. Several different networks offer this option (usually as part of a bundle). If your smartphone is due for an upgrade, this might be an opportunity worth capitalising on.

In this article, we’ll be covering all the respected networks currently offering a free Xbox One as part of a mobile phone contract. Here’s a detailed rundown of what’s available:

Mobile Phone deals bundled with a free Xbox One

  • Unfortunately, on our latest check, the last Xbox One consoles have sold out with our partner mobile phone retailers.  If you're looking for an alternative console from new we would recommend looking at the Xbox Series S|X consoles available via mobile contracts.  We aren't expecting any new deals from our mobile retailer partners as the Xbox One is now classed as a "previous generation" console.

Already got a phone contract, grab an additional game or accessory

Why should new customers get all the fun? If it isn’t quite your time to upgrade, fear not, because there are plenty of accessories and games you can add to your existing contract...

  • EE's 'Add to Plan' offer lets existing customers and contract holders add free Xbox One games/accessories to their existing payment plan. It’s an extra incentive to encourage you to stay within the EE family. One that benefits everyone as you get to pay it off as part of your standard phone bill.

Phone retailers to keep an eye on

As well as regularly scouring the web for all the best video game price cuts and offers, we here at take note of retailers yet to offer appropriate bundles. However, that may change in future, so if you can’t find your perfect Xbox-related phone contract right now, it may be worth checking these in the future.
