How to get a free Xbox Series X|S console with your mobile phone contract

How to get a free Xbox Series X|S console with your mobile phone contract

Many of us are looking to get a great deal on one of the new-gen consoles - whether it be the Playstation 5 or one of Microsoft's Xbox Series X|S, a lot of buyers are finding it hard to get their hands on the consoles they want.

Obviously, this hasn't been helped by the global pandemic which has seen all of the new-gen consoles struggling with stock issues. The knock-on effect of this is that despite it being over 2 years since these consoles were released - discounts are quite rare even if stock has stabilised massively now. Whilst the PS5 has seen some solid discounts during Summer 2023 the Xbox Series X | S consoles have maintained their RRPs. 

With that in mind, we thought we'd take a look at a solution for how you can get your hands on a brand new Xbox Series X|S - for FREE as part of your mobile phone contract!

In this article, we’ll be covering all the respected networks currently offering a free Xbox Series X|S as part of a mobile phone contract as well as mobile phone companies that are offering an add to plan option with monthly costs. Here’s a detailed rundown of what’s available:

Current Mobile Phone deals bundled with Xbox Series X|S

Xbox Series S

On our last search for free Xbox Series S consoles alongside a phone contract sadly all deals have expired and no new ones have been made available. This means that the best options are the add-on deals below from O2 and EE. Hopefully, as we approach the holiday season more mobile phone providers will be bundling in the Xbox consoles with their contracts and we'll have them ready on this article.

  • O2, one of the biggest mobile networks in the world currently have many console bundles available as add-ons with their phone contracts: this includes the Xbox Series S. The add-on feature also includes a finance calculator meaning you can change the duration and monthly costs to suit your needs.

  • EE is offering a wide range of gaming bundles to bolt onto your existing phone contract for new and existing customers. EE's current Xbox Series S bundles include Game Pass Ultimate or an extra Official Robot White Xbox Controller. You can add this to your regular mobile phone plan when you log into your account if you already have a mobile phone plan with EE.

Xbox Series X

Currently, we haven't spotted any phone deals including the Xbox Series X, this is most likely due to the stock issues that were ongoing. However stock is now beginning to stabilise so hopefully that will change in the near future. We will continue to check and regularly update this page, so remember to keep checking back.

  • EE are worth checking regularly if you're fixed on the Xbox Series X console. They have plans for new and existing customers on the Xbox Series X which allows you to grab the console with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, Video Data Pass and unlimited gaming data for £10 upfront and £31 per month. You can add this to your regular mobile phone plan when you log into your account if you already have a mobile phone plan with EE.

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.

We’ll be sure to update this guide with all the latest offers as soon as things change. Leave any questions you might have on the subject in the comment section below.
