Aldi has been throwing some decent hardware deals lately. On Wednesday, it was a mini deep fryer for $19.95. This Saturday, you’ll be able to grab a 500GB Xbox One with a controller, headset and copy of Rise of the Tomb Raider for just $279. I don’t think we’ve ever seen this console go any cheaper.
There are two things you need to know about this deal: firstly, it’s only available this Saturday and stock is expected to be limited. Secondly, the consoles are “refurbished” models.
This is a loose retailing term that covers everything from unopened products that were returned by a different customer for a refund to demo units that were used in-store. In any event, the Xbox Ones should have no visible defects and still come with a full 12-month warranty from Microsoft.
If you haven’t picked up an Xbox One yet, you probably won’t see another offer like this for some time. We advise hitting your nearest Aldi bright and early on Saturday morning. Good luck!
