The 2016 Black Friday ad for American retailer Kohl's leaks online, revealing significant discounts for both PlayStation 4 Slim and Xbox One S hardware bundles.
With Halloween behind us, the world is looking ahead to Thanksgiving and Christmas. One of the most popular days of the year to do Christmas shopping is on Black Friday, and every year major retailers offer deep discounts on video game software, hardware, and accessories for potential Black Friday shoppers. A few Black Friday ads are already being posted online, with Kohl's offering PS4 and Xbox One bundles on the cheap.
Anyone shopping at Kohl's on Black Friday can help themselves to a 500GB Uncharted 4 PS4 Slim bundle for just $250. To sweeten the pot further, they will also be gifted with $75 in "Kohl's Cash," which would allow potential consumers to pick up a brand new game to go along with their new console. For those more interested in picking up a new Xbox this holiday season, Kohl's is running a similar deal for Xbox One S systems, selling the Minecraft bundle for $250 and giving anyone that buys one $75 in Kohl's Cash.
It's possible these deals will be available when Kohl's begins its Black Friday event on November 21st. Otherwise fans will want to be in line early on Thanksgiving Day to take advantage of these deals. Kohl's will open its doors on November 24th at 6pm, and these "door-buster" console deals will be available from that point until 1pm on November 25th.
Kohl's is offering rather enticing deals for PS4 Slim and Xbox One S, making it the perfect time to pick up a new system for anyone interested. However, it isn't the only retailer that is offering great console deals for Black Friday. Both Sam's Club and Dell are selling the consoles for $250 apiece as well, though Dell's deal seems to edge out the competition so far.
Dell is selling the 500GB Xbox One S Battlefield 1 bundle for $250, with a free copy of the critically acclaimed Gears of War 4 and an extra controller thrown in for good measure. So far, none of the other Black Friday deals revealed to date, including the deals from Kohl's, seem to offer the same value as Dell's Xbox One S deal. However, there's still a few weeks to go until Black Friday kicks off this year, so there's plenty of time for a different company to one-up Dell.
Even though Dell is offering the best deal, picking up an Xbox One S or PS4 Slim for just $250 at Kohl's is still a great deal. Plus, the $75 of Kohl's Cash gives consumers a chance to buy whatever additional game they want to go with their new console, which may be more valuable to some.
