Buy a $399 Xbox One at Best Buy, Get a $50 Xbox Gift Card -- What Would You Spend it On?

Retailer offering a nice deal on Microsoft's new console right now.

Best Buy has rolled out a special deal on the Xbox One where, if you buy a $399 system, you will automatically receive a $50 Xbox gift card for free. The deal is only valid for the $399, no-Kinect version. There is no indication as to how long the deal will last, so you may want to act quickly.

You'll need to add the system to your cart to see the free $50 Xbox gift card.

The $499 Xbox One system (with Kinect) comes with a free copy of Forza 5 at Best Buy. And of course, Best Buy--and other retailers--continue to sell the $499 Xbox One Titanfall bundle that comes with a system, Kinect, and a copy of Respawn Entertainment's shooter.

The Xbox One launched in late November 2013 and sold more than 3 million units by the end of the year. Microsoft has not provided a new official sales number since then, though we do know that the number of units shipped is somewhere north of 5 million units. That's well behind Sony's PlayStation 4, which has sold more than 7 million units as of early April.

The $399 Xbox One went on sale on June 9 and immediately flew off the shelves at GameStop. Likely due to the arrival of the new, less expensive Xbox One SKU, Xbox One sales in the United States "more than double[d]" in June, compared to May. However, the PS4 was still the top-selling console for June in the US.

If you're taking advantage of Best Buy's Xbox One deal, what do you plan to spend your $50 on? Let us know in the comments!
