      • Market value in this case dictates whether it is a bargain and not the RRP. Market value is based upon supply vs demand. That value is somewhere between $1,200 and $1,400 at an estimate based on eBay. The same for PS5. Therefore if you are one of the fortunate ones to get a unit at RRP then you have a bargain. Next!

        • I just read the post above which is pretty much the same. Snap. Dammit!

  • Just managed to get one through Microsoft store. Probably an hour since I clicked through from cashrewards so hopefully it will track

  • According to, there are 8 or 9 retailers selling Xbox Series X. So far we have deals from Microsoft, Telstra, Big W, JB Hifi and EB games. Can't wait to see these RRP deals from Amazon, Target, Kogan, Catch, eBay, Harvey Norman etc.
    Oh, did I miss the Good Guys and Kmart? Sorry.

    • Harvey Norman already sold out

      I`m waiting for Amazon with further $30

    • None of them available

  • Anyone know if Microsoft have a change of mind return policy?

    • +1
      1. Return Policy. We will accept change of mind returns and exchanges for eligible products for 30 days from the date of delivery or download, as applicable. Simply return the eligible product in like new condition and in its original packaging, along with all parts, components, instruction manuals and documentation that were initially included. This Return Policy does not affect any statutory rights that may apply to your purchase, including but not limited to rights you may have under the Australian Consumer Law.

      But you can just click cancel under order history on your account.

    • It's dawning on me that a thermal printer might not be as fun as an xbox, I'll check eBays return policy.

  • I was standing by to preorder at 12pm on EB games sites and they pushed back to 3pm…. just GREAT!

  • +1

    Keep checking, everyone. I just got mine half an hour ago.. they keep restocking

    • Yes, I got one not long ago as well at around 11:30AM

    • Maybe because of the people that cancelled. no deposit needed on microsoft store so its easy to just add to cart and confirm then cancel later.

  • +2

    You can try add XBox Series X to cart with steps:

    • Navigate to
    • Right click on the "Choose your console (required)" text above the square section with Out of Stock wording, click Inspect.
    • You should see "Choose your console (required)" in h4 tag.
    • The DIV section below contains class="oos" and disabled="disabled"
    • Change the class from "oos" to "m-channel-placement-item m-cart-placement-item f-wide f-full-bleed-image" and remove disabled="disabled".

    You are now able to add the xbox series x to cart.

    I can get to Place Order screen. But I haven't tried since I want to go to EB to trade in. But at least you have your cart ready for next available stock. :D

    • +1

      Yup, able to add to cart using above steps,
      Didn't proceed as want to trade in with EBgames.

      Anyone success to buy one with this hack? :)

      • +1

        I just successfully used this to purchase one. I added it to my cart when I first read this comment, and then for the longest time it didn't go through - kept coming up with an error. Went and had dinner, and then I just randomly tried again now (it was still in my cart from when I tried earlier) and it went through. Thank you.

        • Did you get a confirmation email that it was successful ?

          • @Miksta: Yep. Email says releasing on 9th of Nov. I might just have tried to put it through just as they got more stock in, or maybe somebody cancelled their preorder? But after it was successful I looked at the previous page where you can add it to cart, just to check, and it still said out of stock. So I'm not sure why it went through when it did.

  • Imma be like xbots fanboys from Sony PS5 pre order page.


  • They have in stock again in case anyone is looking.

    If anyone has ordered on the later date can you confirm what your order says? I’m confused as to whether I’m getting a later shipment or not as it just says available 9/11/20….

    • Mine said 10/11/2020 but there's a note saying that expect DEC 20th before you add to cart

      • The email says : Monday, 9 November 2020

        • Damn… lol I thought maybe got lucky.

          Thanks for confirming.

  • Anyone got the link to trade in an x box one for a new x box ? Can't find it on eb's site

  • +1

    An update for you ladies and gents I have just received a credit on my cashback for the purchase. Maybe all the push back from oz bargain members and cashback has made Microsoft have a change of heart whatever the case it now seems as though we are getting a cashback for the Microsoft Xbox series X purchases.

    • ShopBack still shows as Calculating for me although that's going to be the least of my worries now that all of my information has been stolen.

  • +1

    LOL .. Xbox Series S is still in stock when the Xbox series X sold out in 15 minutes. .. Looks like no one wants that overpriced, under powered, digital only option.
    My Cashrewards order is being tracked.. not sure if it will be confirmed but time will tell i guess.
    21 Sep 2020 Microsoft Store 30/12/2020 AUD680.91 = AUD 10.21 cashback

  • +1

    ShopBack has started tracking $10.21 on the Xbox Series X. I didn't realise cashback was based on the amount excluding GST.

  • I just got an email from Microsoft (do not reply)

    • Same here, WTH

  • $749.00 deducted from my account, looks like it will be on the way soon for me too:

    New estimated delivery date: October 28, 2020

    • lol, mine has been discounted as well!!!

      Considering it says it will only be discounted when shipped….so has it been shipped?

      • Not quite sure, status on my MS account / current orders shows that the order is still pending. The funds came out yesterday (Saturday) so maybe they just can't send yet because it's the weekend. Not too fussed or in any hurry, it will get here eventually :-)

        • Mine shows paid.

          • @Dienk: Mines CC as been charged as well, pending as 22/10

            • @lufee: I just checked again and my PayPal just got a pre- authorisation. Not charged yet.

              Likes like MS will send it only in 9th Nov. No one will get it in the launch day. At this point the console should be good to go and everybody charged.

              I think I missed the launch boat.

              Is it yours showing pending yet?

    Dear Microsoft Store Customer,

    Thank you for your pre-order of the new Xbox Console from Microsoft.

    Due to some system configurations we performed you may have received an email about an earlier shipping date for your pre-order. If you have, please disregard this information. Please note that your pre-order will ship from November 10th as originally stated on the website.

    This system configuration also caused you to be charged early for your Xbox Console. The system configuration issue has been corrected, however, you may have already noticed a charge on your credit card.

    If you have any questions, please call us at 1800 267 785 and we will be happy to help you.

    Thank you for shopping at Microsoft Store,

    Microsoft Store Team

    Umm so what are you going to do with charging me early?

    • did you get double charged?

  • +2

    Get ready! The order you placed on Monday, 21 September 2020 has shipped. Click the track shipment link below to request updates and special delivery options.
    The charge should now be reflected in your account.
    Thank you for shopping with us – we can’t wait to get this to you.

  • anyone get double charged for their Xbox Series X ? .. once last month and once yesterday ?

    • +2

      Yes, they charged last month and then the money actually went back into my account last week. It came out again the week just past and then I got the email saying it was on the way.

      • So strange…. i think i had that same thing happen to me but i cant find it on my bank statement anymore.. its like it never was charged.. but i did see the number of $749 last month and now i cant find that $749 anymore from last month

        • Yes it is stupid the way it does the whole process. The credit actually wipes out the original amount that got deducted from your account, so if you search for an amount of $749.00 you will come up with nothing. It's not even really a credit, more like they delete the withdrawal from ever happening. Lucky the amount is fairly unique, so I had an idea of what was going on and just left the funds in my account.

  • Mine has arrived, picking up from DHL depot in an hour.
