Xbox One X Savings Plan
Share this:

Now that the pre-orders are live for the Xbox One X, it’s time to take a look at how you can set aside the remaining funds before November 7th without setting your wallet on fire – aka the Xbox One X Savings Plan.
With only 11 weeks remaining until release date, the cost to secure your pre-order will vary depending on the outlet you place your order with, so I will breakdown each plan based on the main outlets in the USA, UK and AUS.

The below figures demonstrate how much you will need to budget aside by a per day and per week basis over the next 10 weeks.

USD Pricing – $499 (from 22 August – 31 October)

With 11 weeks left until release date the total of $499 will need to be paid approx. one week out depending on the outlet so we will work off a 10 week budgeting plan (70 days).

If you are unable to secure a pre-order due to stock limitations, you can request to be put on a waiting list (depending on the outlet) in the event that someone cancels their pre-order.
If you are not planning on purchasing the Xbox One X for day one pickup, and instead will be aiming for the second batch closer to Christmas, you will have a bit of extra time up your sleeve to save.
Based on 17 weeks to save the figures look like this:

USD Pricing – $499
Per day – $4.19
Per week – $29.35

UK Pricing – £449
Per day – 3.77
Per week – 26.41

AUD Pricing – $649.95
Per day – $5.46
Per week – $38.23

Hopefully this will aid you in getting your funds organized prior to release date (or Christmas depending on your preference). Enjoy!
