Best Xbox deals for May 2022

The best deals on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox games, Game Pass, accessories and more.

The new Microsoft consoles are now firmly here and present, and whether you've managed to grab a new Xbox Series X/S already, are getting ready to grab one soon or you're simply building on your lovable library of Xbox One games, there's a lot to pick from. And though the new consoles aren't likely to be discounted soon, the fact that most of the games will carry over means you can grab a deal on bestsellers now, or stack up on the best subscriptions like Xbox Game Pass or Xbox Live Gold for the near future.

So whether you're looking for a new Xbox Series X or S, Xbox games, controllers, Game Pass Ultimate subscriptions or accessories, there are plenty of great deals to tuck into this month.

On this page:

Before we dive in, if you or whoever you're buying for has an Xbox Series S, it's an all-digital console that can't play discs. So, you'll have to buy your games directly from the Xbox digital store, or you can purchase gift cards that can then be redeemed to spend on the store.

The Xbox Series X does play discs, and the consoles have been hard to find in the past but are staying in stock more regularly now. Microsoft heavily discounted the Xbox One S and X consoles after they were discontinued, but we'd recommend staying clear of these and grabbing a Series S instead.

Best Xbox Series X deals

Over a year after its release and it's finally getting easier to find the Series X in stores in the UK. Stock issues could easily appear again though, so it's best to be quick if you do find one online.

Amazon restocked the Xbox Series X on 1st March around 8am, and it is still in stock at the time of writing. There's also a bundle with 3 months of Xbox Game Pass available at Currys.

If you need a helping hand, we'd recommend bookmarking our Xbox Series X stock updates for updates on when new stock becomes available. Another quick way to stay updated is by following Jelly Deals on Twitter.


Best Xbox Series S deals

The Xbox Series S is much easier to get a hold of and can be found at most major UK retailers. Some retailers are building their own bundles including controllers and other accessories while Xbox recently released a bundle including exclusive Rocket League and Fortnite cosmetics for the RRP of £249.

As the console is still in such high demand, we're not expecting to see any major discounts on Series S bundles or consoles until next year, but you can find the best deals that are out there right now below.



Best Xbox game deals

While most of the Xbox's best games are available through Game Pass Ultimate, there are plenty of third-party titles you won't find on the subscription service. Third-party games that end up on Game Pass also tend to drop in price, which is great if you don't plan on becoming a member anytime soon. Whether you're looking to expand your game library or simply prefer physical versions of games, check out the best deals on Xbox games below.



Best Xbox Game Pass Ultimate deals

Even when it's full price, Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass is one of the best deals in the gaming world: access to over 100 games for just over a tenner every month. That said, you can save a little extra on your subscription if you know where to look.

If you're new to the world of Xbox, you can get your first month of Game Pass Ultimate for free by signing up directly through Microsoft. After that, you'll be charged £10.99 per month, or you can cancel and grab one of the subscriptions below for cheaper instead…

Best Xbox controller deals

It's not often that Xbox controllers drop below their RRP of £54.99, but some retailers knock a fiver off them from time to time. We've left the best deals on Xbox controllers below, as well as some great deals on third-party and pro controllers.



Best Xbox accessory deals

If you've got a Game Pass Ultimate subscription, the storage space on your console is going to dry up pretty quickly. We'd recommend grabbing an external HDD or SSD to store your games on, which will save you from having to redownload them every time. You can just move them across from the drive to the console instead.

While the PS5's internal memory can be upgraded using a compatible SSD with a heatsink, the only way to upgrade the internal memory of the Series X/S is with the official Seagate memory expansion card. It's pretty expensive, but it's on sale at a slightly reduced price of £198.99 right now. It was cheaper last month for £184.99 so we expect it will go further down in price again in the future.
