Xbox Series X pre-orders start today, but if you don't want to drop $500 on Microsoft's new console, GameStop has an Xbox Series X deal you can't miss. 

For a limited time, GameStop will give you up to a $200 credit when you trade-in your old console for any new console — including the Xbox Series X and Series S. That means you can get the new Xbox Series X for just $300 or the Xbox Series S for just $100 after trade-in. Given the demand for these new consoles, we think this Xbox Series X deal is better than anything you'll see during Amazon Prime Day.

Xbox Series X | S: $200 trade-in credit @ GameStop

Xbox Series X | S: $200 trade-in credit @ GameStop
Trade-in your old console at GameStop and you'll get up to a $200 credit toward the purchase of a new Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S console. The Xbox One X and PS4 Pro will get you the full $200 credit. Meanwhile, trade-in an Xbox One S or PS4 and you'll get a $100 credit. After trade-in you'll pay as little as $300 for the new Xbox Series X or just $100 for the Xbox Series S. The credit can also be used  toward the purchase of a PS5 console.

The trade-in credits break down as such: The Xbox One X and PS4 Pro will get you the full $200 credit. Meanwhile, the Xbox One S or PS4 will get you a $100 credit. 

The $499 Xbox Series X features 4K visuals at 60fps, ray tracing, 3.8GHz AMD Zen 2 CPU, 16GB GDDR6 memory, 1TB NVMe SSD, and a 12 teraflop AMD RDNA 2 GPU. 

Meanwhile, the $299 Series S can play games at up to 1440p and 120fps. It'll include many Series X features such as ray tracing and fast SSD loading. However, the console has a much smaller hard drive at 512GB. 

GameStop's promo is valid through November 30.
