Get ready to pre-order the new Xbox!

Today, September 22nd at 9am MST, the new Xbox X and Xbox S Consoles will be available to pre-order!

The consoles will be releasing on November 10th, however, if you’re hoping to snag one, you will definitely want to preorder as they may sell out!

Even better, if you’re a Target REDcard holder, you’ll save an extra 5% off your purchase! Not a Red Cardholder yet? See why now is the perfect time to sign up!

The new Xbox Series X is the newest and most powerful Xbox console! It offers backward compatibility so you can play Xbox games you already own and has 4K gaming.

The Xbox Series S is a digital-only console! It has no disc drive so all games will need to be purchased digitally, however, this means the console is much smaller than previous versions and less expensive!

Pre-order the consoles at these stores…

Xbox X and Xbox S consoles

Xbox Series X
Pre-order for $499 at Xbox, Target, Best Buy, GameStop or Walmart


Xbox Series S
Pre-order for $299 at Xbox, Target, Best Buy, GameStop or Walmart

    seems expensive

    • AmyA

      There is a cheaper model on presale today too.

  2. sally

    Does anyone know,what’s the difference b/w XBox x and XBox S ?

    • Chelsey (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Sally! The Xbox Series X can play discs, so physical games that you would buy at a store or Blu-rays. Whereas the Xbox Series S can only play digital games, you wouldn’t be able to put a disc in it to play a game or watch a movie.

      • sally

        Thank you so much!

    • frugal-fit-sexy

      Also, Xbox series s doesn’t do 4k. It’s scaled down

    • Todd

      The series x does full 4 k graphics and the s does not. The series x has 1 tb harddrive the s has 512. The series x has more ram as well and a better graphics card.

  3. LaWanda Bertschy

    Is it available for Pre-sale on Amazon???? not seeing it?

  4. PrincessMom

    If you have a large library of games, it may be worth spending the $500 on the X since it has backward capability. (That’s the reason lots of XBox users didn’t go for the One–it only worked with games made for the One.) It’s not likely to go on sale, either, the best they usually do is a bundle with a couple of games that work out to be a little less than if you bought the games separate.

  5. Start2luvme

    Everywhere I look it says coming soon.

  6. Start2luvme

    Every site I go to says, Coming Soon. :[

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes, Be sure to check back soon!

    • Tay

      Once it goes live at 9am MST, links will appear and will allow you to pre-order.

  7. Sallys

    wow that is expensive. My daughter asked for one for Christmas I had no idea it would be so expensive! yikes.

  8. Todd

    The series x does full 4 k graphics and the s does not. The series x has 1 tb harddrive the s has 512. The series x has more ram as well and a better graphics card.

    • KetaKoya87

      Thanks for explaining this! I don’t know the difference but understand this a bit more… my hubby wants the 4K compatible & he just kept telling me “just get x as in X-ray…” 😣 smh

  9. Rebecca

    If I pre-order now but change my mind, can I cancel before it releases?

    • Mama2Nine

      Rebecca if you change your mind. I’ll buy it from you!
      I am looking for this and a ps5.

  10. stevie78

    When is Best Buy going live?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hopefully soon! 🤞

  11. Lo

    Well that was fun but I couldn’t get one.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Lo! These are available for pre order now for me from Target and it looks like you can “get in line” at Gamestop! Hope this helps!

      • Lo

        I tried target first but it was an endless loop of cart dumping. Wish I’d tried Walmart first. Oh well.

        • Kate

          Target didn’t work for me, I could never add to my cart…I think it’s prob not available.

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Oh darn! Maybe try Gamestop OR check back again in a bit through the Best Buy link. Hoping you might be able to score one!

  12. Kate

    Thanks! Got one from Walmart! Bummed I couldn’t get the 5% off with Target but they had site issues.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Kate! Happy you could score one!

      • Kate

        actually was just able to order from Target and cancel from Walmart, saved $15! YAY

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Oh good!

  13. Adam

    shouldn’t even have pre-order days. bleeping bots take them all. just say it will be in September sometime

  14. CJ

    I didn’t get it either. Tried every site. I had it in my cart at Walmart and checked out at 11:01 and when I hit submit it said “your cart is empty”. They sold out in less than a minute? Whew! I’ll get it before Christmas, but I was hoping to secure it today. Too bad they hyped it! 🥴

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Darn! Maybe wait a bit and check through the links above once more! You can still “get in line” at Gamestop. Hope this helps!

      • CJ

        FINALLY GOT IT (1:55 pm EDT) at Best Buys! I just kept trying back. I also had already logged in to my best buy acct so all I had to do was put it in my basket and go pay. I didn’t want to waste time filling out info if I could get it in my cart. It took 1,000 refreshes, but I got it!!!!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Woohoo!! SO glad to hear that, CJ! 🎉Thanks for the update!

  15. Elyse

    Got one on Walmart! 3 different windows, refreshing constantly and was finally able to check out.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh good! Happy you could finally order one!

  16. frugal-fit-sexy

    Just got one at Target. Keep refreshing they go on and out. So glad I pre-ordered the PS5 and Xbox,. Xmas done

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SWEET! Thanks for the helpful tip!

  17. B_Chhin

    I don’t know if Best Buy is super slow to go live or if I just missed it altogether. Still says “coming soon”. Bummer

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      I was wondering that too. I’m thinking maybe check back again in a bit.

  18. AmyA

    So excited! Got one from Target! Saved $25 because I used my red card. We had to cancel our summer vacation, so we had a few extra bucks to splurge on my son’s birthday this year. He is going to be so excited!

  19. Rebecca

    What BS. Was on Target sites(app, mobile, and desktop) as soon as it was available. Was able to add to cart right away, and got to “place order” several times, buy never would go through. Then it would be gone from cart, refresh & repeat. Now they’re truly gone. Btw the extra 5% was applying for me, even though it says excludes Xbox. So I was saving 10%.

    • amandashedd

      Check your emails. Mine went through when I thought it had not. I noticed my extra 5% coupon was gone from the target app and then I saw the email

      • Rebecca

        Thanks, no such luck here though.

  20. amandashedd

    I was mad, I thought I didn’t get one at target because the cart was acting up and never seemed to complete the order. I did get an email though and I saved 5 percent twice with exclusive coupon. $483 total.

  21. JaniceP

    Anyone know where I can get a Nintendo switch?

  22. Heather

    I kept trying and finally snagged one at Best Buy for store pickup when it releases. Ordered my husband his favorite game as well!

  23. Stacie

    I got my kids a Nintendo switch but as I loon through the games available I feel like I’m buying a large Nintendo DS that the kids already play. Opinions on PS vs. Switch? Wondering if I should trade.

    • frugal-fit-sexy

      We have them all. Switch is great for the family as we can all play together. If they’re getting older, the switch will feel “tired” to them.

  24. Daisy Carrasco

    People already have it on ebay for twice the cost. This is crazy! I was able to snag one up. Yay!
