Everyone likes to save money so I don’t really need to explain why you should look around for the best deals but I will any way. It’s not about being tight with your money or being a scrooge it’s about getting better value for money.

There are a few things to look out for when purchasing a console so be sure to listen up as I’m going to save you a lot of money.

Don’t pay retail prices

Now you would be amazed by the people who still pay through the nose because of retail prices. Sure now and again the stores will have a good deal but more often than not you will end up paying extra because the retailer will be adding extra money on to make more of a profit. If you want to save money on your Xbox 360 then the first step is to look online.

In order to get the best Xbox 360 deals then you must use the internet to its full potential.

Shipping Costs

Now you may be thinking that any saving made online will be hindered by the fact that you have to pay shipping costs, however you will be happy to know that most of the large online video game console sellers offer shipping for very little and in most cases they offer it for free.

What if my Xbox breaks

I can see that if you purchase a console from a store and something goes wrong then you can physically take it back to the store and hopefully get it fixed or replaced. However how many times have you taken something back to a store only for the person working there to tell you that your item isn’t covered or it was your fault it broke even though it probably wasn’t?

When purchasing online you don’t have to worry about this ever happening. When purchasing an Xbox 360 console online you can get 12 months guarantee for absolutely free. Now there’s a load off your mind.

So if you’re looking to buy an Xbox and you want to save money then have a look online as I can guarantee you will save a lot of money compared to retail prices.
