Original Article (Wed 16th Mar, 2022): The official UK Microsoft Store has listed refurbished Xbox Series X consoles for sale, with prices starting at £419.99 – down from the console's standard RRP of £449.99.
It seems to be a pretty perfect way to get your hands on a console at a slightly reduced price, and thanks to Microsoft's 'Certified Refurbished' scheme, you won't have to worry about your product's quality. These refurbished Xbox consoles come with 12-month warranty included and will contain all the standard accessories and manuals that would be present in a brand-new system seen on a store shelf.
Better yet, you can also add Microsoft Complete to the deal for £39.00 if you want to, which typically provides up to three years of warranty for your Xbox console. So, even though it's refurbished, you're getting peace of mind that way. We've talked to Xbox support about this and they've advised that you do get the extended warranty even though it's refurbished, but ultimately you might want to double check yourself with the support team just to make sure.
"For added peace of mind, Microsoft Complete gives you extended coverage and support for up to 4 years on Surface plans, and up to 3 years on Xbox plans, so that you can work and play worry-free."

Microsoft says, "Xbox Series X (Certified Refurbished) offers the opportunity to buy the device at a discounted price. The device undergoes a complete refurbishment process before being offered for re-sale. Available exclusively at Microsoft Store."
If you prefer, brand new systems also seem to be available at the time of writing, for the usual RRP:
