Xbox One X + 2 Controllers £369 @ Microsoft Store UK (Via Nokeys)

Found 23rd Feb
Less complex compared to the foreign Microsoft store deals as you can carry out the whole purchase from your UK account. This deal therefore does not require entering foreign billing addresses etc... so you should have fewer issues compared to the foreign store deals. Even though this deal looks long winded, it really shouldn't take you in excess of 10-15 minutes.


Steps:

1) Purchase 9 x £50 cards from Nokeys - you should pay in US dollars for a better conversion rate, and use the code 'XBUK-HOT10OFF2M' at checkout. The total should be $514.75..

2) Add these gift cards to your Microsoft store account.

  • Click on your name in the top right hand corner
  • Select "View Microsoft account" from the drop down menu
  • Scroll down and on the left hand side under "Money and gift cards" enter your codes via the "redeem a code or gift card option.

3) Purchase your Xbox via this link.

Guys if you need to do forex transactions use a service like Revolut for zero fees. Can fund it by debit card and only takes 10 mins to set up.
If anyone wants an alternative method without the faff of paying in a foreign currency I did the following recently to purchase my One X:

(I'm assuming in the below that all the cashback tracks and pays out correctly, there is always the gamble that it wont...)

1) Purchase 9 x £50 Xbox cards from SCDKeys for £383.67 - when purchased through topcashback it has tracked at £32.22 cashback for me at 8.4%. When I bought my cards through the site the emailed me back asking to confirm it was me that sent them. I replied and then immediately used their live chat. They gave me a quick call to verify my identity and then sent through the credit.

2) Add your credit to your UK Xbox account.

3) Go to the MS Store through topcashback. They have 2.1% cashback which should then track at £9.45.

4) Add your Xbox One X console to basket with additional bundle items and then pay using your account balance.

The above is what I did recently, as did a friend of mine. If all cashback pays out you're getting the console plus extras for £383.67 outlay - £32.22 SCD cashback - £9.45 MS cashback, so a total of £342

You can pay in Sterling, but the price is more expensive (~ £380). This is a money saving website, so I post the cheapest way to purchase a product, so in a few cases this involves paying in a foreign currency.

Is there any way this can go wrong and you just have the gift cards? Or can you refund the gift cards if something goes wrong?
This looks like a good trick, but would I be right in thinking I'm going to get charged international conversion fees if my bank account doesn't do that for free? Never used Nokeys so don't know what they're like.

I have never known anyone to have a problem when purchasing from the UK store. Having said that if you do not feel 100% comfortable, I would not purchase, I wouldn't want anyone to get too stressed in the 5 minutes between purchasing the gift cards and them arriving!
How do you get it down to 369?
Also, $514 isn't going to convert to £369 for foreign exchange rates, is it? The figure from google conversions is usually a better rate than what people usually get.

Paypal converts 1No. £50 gift card to £42.39 from $57.20

Looking at £381.51 in total

Would that allow you to get it for the price that google gives you as a exchange rate?
Nationwide credit card has 0 percent exchange fees on foreign purchases

It's in the description...
Bundle Inc PUBG and gears war too. Has anyone used this method. I purchase lots foreign gift cards. But buying so many at once oddly seems wrong
I got the keys almost instantly. I did ping Live chat right after ordering though

I understand that bit. I meant when you factor in exchange rates as like another member has said PayPal comes up as 381

Loads of posts on here bud where people have done it. Most of the one x deals are like this. Im looking at doing it myself so no proof sorry.
Heated for extra controller and games, think the games should be added to the title.

It is possible and has been for quite some time.

The only issue is NoKeys. Sometimes you hear people say they want ID before being able to send you the codes.
Aside from that it's a cracking deal. Sell the extras and you've got yourself an X for £320odd.
Tempted myself.

Yeah I ordered a gift card the other day and they wanted ID, sent them it and they said it was unclear so to send it again. Did so, no code for 12 hours, contacted live support and they refunded in like 30 seconds so it’s worth a crack even if they try for your ID

I went for the previous deal, but please be aware that for the sake of saving a bit of money you'll be tied in to repair only without refund. I'm awaiting my third console now, the first had a faulty fan, the second had such bad coil whine that I could hear it over games, and who knows when the third will arrive as Microsoft can't decide whether to send me a new console or repair the second one. I wish I'd bought this from Amazon as at least I could get a refund.

After the 3rd you are entitled your money back under the sales of goods act.
Yes, but it was purchased with vouchers, so all I get is credit, hence why sometimes saving a few pounds isn't worth it.
i want one, but not until Xmas....i'll wait it out.

Damn I had a couple of launch day Scorpios that had the exact same issue. I would have hoped they could have solved the problems by now. Guess not.

Luckily I purchased from Amazon and John Lewis so easily got my money back.

Yup I did this about 2 hours ago, gears of war, pubg and the extra controller for £381 via PayPal. Had the no keys delivered instantly!
I bought from Ireland store couple of weeks back...worked fine. Be patient though and don’t stress too much...and if still think it’s bit fishy, stay clear!
And I used paypal to pay...exchange rate is same as if you were to transfer $ to anyone on paypal which you can check before doing the transaction

Revolut monzo, will give you that rate
I have a Barclays card with no fees for international transactions. Just checked the rate I would get with visa and it says:

514.00 United States Dollar = 370.95Pound Sterling

So pretty close to the OPs prediction.

Exactly my thoughts.

I don't know about the rates now but I think PayPal's exchange rate is like $1.34 per quid and I don't think they charge you extra.

Thanks. If you think this is bad then you should have seen some of the continental Microsoft store deals!
Not to encourage anyone but UK store is the safest on to try. Microsoft customer support confirmed its legit to buy this way although you can’t get your money back if you just changed your mind and didn’t want to keep the box!

Yes most definitely, I have stopped posting foreign store deals now, as the process was significantly more complex. Good point about refunds, I have never really considered that before, I will make this clear in descriptions in any future deals
Good job Op!, i've voted hot.

obviously a great price
good post op
I have a gaming pc but if I didn't I'd go for this
no point in buying pc hardware right now - or for the next 6 months imho. Not with the RAM shortage, GPU shortage (and new ones soon), SSD NAND shortage (with a few exceptions), and new ryzen+ coming out
