Bookmark this Xbox One console page on Amazon and check it often throughout the day, refreshing and refreshing it once more to learn when the “currently unavailable” text turns to the signature Amazon verbiage that let’s you know when it becomes available for sale once more, like this Internet Deals Examiner witnessed the consoles and bundles for sale less than 24 hours ago.
This page on Amazon for the Xbox One console “Day One Edition” shows that new Xbox One consoles are priced and selling from $899.99 up to $1,499.99 as of this writing. That’s because the newest stock of Xbox One consoles that quickly came in stock on Friday, December 6, 2013, along with bundles that combined the consoles with games like Battlefield 4, are now sold out as of Saturday, December 7, 2013, and in their place are people taking the opportunity to sell their new consoles for higher prices on Amazon.
Ironically, the trade-in page for the Xbox One Console – Day One Edition shows a trade-in value for the console running as high as $427.50, which is very close to the original $499.96 price that the same console sold for back in April 2013, when some people first pre-ordered their consoles through Amazon – those that shipped near the end of November 2013.
Now the Christmas rush is on, and those seeking to pay the original price for an Xbox One may have to be quick on their feet (or mouse trackpads) to find one in stock for a low price and ready to ship and be received prior to Christmas Day.
