EDIT: Looks like Microsoft may have updated the list of participating retailers to remove an explicit reference to Costco.

quote:

Beginning on September 22, you’ll be able to pre-order Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S online at the following retailers:

– United States (8AM PT): Microsoft Store, Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Walmart, Target, Sam’s Club, Newegg, and other participating retailers

Probably not. Xbox fans are a bit less rabid and more organized than the Sony shitshow

Thank you for starting this thread. Hopefully I can snag a series X. My younger son is already excited for me to pass my One down to him.

But do you think having a set pre-order time/date will make the bots even worse? Seems like it'd be easier for the scalpers to get them set up and ready to go?

re: Pre-order Xbox Series S/X Thread
If any of you have a Chase sapphire preferred or reserve card with enough points, here's how to get a PS5 disc version from Amazon for $333 before tax or a discless version for $266 before tax (assuming you have a Sapphire Reserve)

LINK

quote:

So, normally with the Sapphire Preferred (CSP) and Sapphire Reserve (CSR), you have to redeem points through Chase’s travel portal if you want to maximize value. They’re worth 25% more with CSP and 50% more with CSR. On everything else (amazon, apple, statement credit, etc), they’re usually just worth the standard 1 cent. Sometimes you can get lucky and get 2+ cents by transferring to travel partners, but this isn't guaranteed.

Chase added a feature in June called "Pay Yourself Back," where you can make a purchase in an eligible category (right now it’s grocery stores, home improvement stores, and restaurants), then have the ability to reimburse yourself with your points if you like. The kicker is that you get the same extra value that you would get from Chase travel redemption (1.25x and 1.5x). So as a CSR holder, if you spend $100 at the grocery store and pay yourself back, instead of losing 10,000pts, you only use 6,667, or $67 worth.

How does this help us? Whole Foods sells Amazon gift cards. Say I want a new $1000 gizmo. I just need to go buy (2) $500 Amazon gift cards at Whole Foods, pay myself back with points, and because of the extra point value, I’m only getting deducted 33,333 points for each gift card instead of 50,000. $1000 purchase becomes a $666 purchase. Groovy

I know some of yall mfs have hundreds of thousands of points banked away, this is a good way to get the same point value without having to travel in these crazy times. I have 200k I'm sitting on and don't plan on traveling any time soon, so I may as well use some for this

Thanks , I'm sitting on 100k points since we aren't traveling much and like that says that's usually the best value for points.

re: Pre-order Xbox Series S/X Thread
Based on how quickly the PS5s are going as soon as a new wave of pre-orders goes live, I'm starting to get worried that the bots will sweep up all the Xs/Ss. Because the day and time have been announced, I feel like people are setting up the bots to sweep all these sites clean.
