Microsoft puts “valued customers” ahead of Xbox scalpers

Are you having trouble finding an Xbox Series X? Microsoft could have you covered, as the company offers “valued customers” the ability to purchase an Xbox Series X bundle without having to compete with scalpers and bots.

According to The Verge, Microsoft is offering a “limited supply of Xbox Series X packs” to what it calls “valued customers.” It looks like Microsoft is offering this special bundle to people who have purchased from the Microsoft Store in the past, although it’s not clear exactly how much you must have spent or if there is any randomization.

“Because you are a valued Microsoft customer, we want to let you know that the Microsoft Store has just received a limited supply of Xbox Series X packs available for purchase from the Microsoft Store,” the email read. A unique link allows customers to purchase the package without having to wait in a virtual line.

Microsoft requires you to purchase a pack that includes an additional controller and a game. You can choose from crazy 22, GTA V, Rust, Far cry 6, Hasbro Family Fun Pack, Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, Sandstorm of insurgency, and Diablo 2 resurrected. There are many different types of games out there, so there is probably one to suit your tastes.

If you receive any of these emails from Microsoft, consider yourself lucky because it doesn’t look like they’re being sent to everyone.
