Best Buy deal offers an Xbox One and a 40-inch Samsung TV for $500 next week

Best Buy is offering a nice deal next week for people looking to pick up an Xbox One and snag a new TV at the same time: Customers who buy a particular Xbox One bundle and a specific 40-inch Samsung smart TV will get both for $499.98.

The deal applies to two different Xbox One packages, each of which costs $349.99: the black 500 GB console that’s bundled with Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and the black 500 GB unit that comes with Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag.

The television in question is a 40-inch 1080p LED TV from Samsung (model UN40J5200AFXZA) that regularly costs $429.99. That means that customers who take advantage of this deal will be saving $280.

Best Buy is promoting the offer as a back-to-school special for college students, saying that a 40-inch TV is “a great size for a dorm room,” but we’re not sure that’s true — unless dorm rooms have gotten much bigger since we went to college. Either way, the deal will run from Sunday, Aug. 9, through Saturday, Aug. 15.


Damn that’s sick

The question is, do I make the pitch to the wife or just ask for forgiveness later. My son is only 4 but its only a matter of time before he starts asking to play on my xbox.
