Game On! Get an Xbox Series X or S with Spark’s great Xbox All Access Deal

If you’re on a Spark broadband or monthly mobile plan, Spark’s Xbox All Access deal is a great way to grab an Xbox Series X or S for $52 a month.

The new Xbox Series X and S consoles are in hot demand at the moment. Like Sony’s latest PS5, you’ll be hard-pressed to find one in the shops at the moment. Even pre-orders are being limited. But once supplies start to flow, if you’re a Spark customer on an eligible phone or broadband plan, there is a way to get your hands on one for just $52 per month.

Xbox Series X

Spark’s Xbox All Access

Spark’s Xbox All Access is available to all Spark customers who have a broadband or pay monthly mobile plan.

For $59 a month, you get a Xbox Series X and a 24-month subscription to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. The subscription gives you access to over 100 great Xbox games, online multiplayer and an EA Play membership, which unlocks exclusive content and unlimited access to EA titles.

But there’s got to be a catch? Surely there are hidden costs, right? Wrong! We thought the same thing, which is why Canstar Blue crunched the numbers:

Xbox Series X: what’s the deal?

At $52 per month for 24 months, Spark’s Xbox All Access deal for an Xbox Series X adds up to: $1248.

This compares to, purchased separately:

Xbox Series X: $799 rrp

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate: $19.95/m (deal offers first month for $1): (23 months x $19.95) + $1 = $459.85

Total: $799 (console) + $459.85 (24-month subscription) = $1258.85

So, if you’re already with Spark, you actually save $10.85! Of course, if you cancel the deal early, or break your Spark mobile/broadband contract, you’ll need to pay the remaining balance of the Xbox All Access offer. But you’ll still come out on top!

Xbox Series S

Spark also give you the option to sign up for the less powerful, smaller Xbox Series S for $39/m on a similar 24-month contract. While the Series S (512GB) doesn’t pack the same grunt or 1TB memory as the Series X, for casual gamers it still offers all the smooth graphics and refined gameplay experience as its big bro. And at just $39/m it’s an even better deal when purchased through Spark:

At $39 per month for 24 months, Spark’s Xbox All Access deal for an Xbox Series S adds up to: $936.

This compares to, purchased separately:

Xbox Series S: $549 rrp

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate: $19.95/m (deal offers first month for $1): (23 months x $19.95) + $1 = $459.85

Total: $549 (console) + $459.85 (24-month subscription) = $1008.85

So, if you’re already with Spark, this is a saving of $72.85! What a deal!

Of course, if you’re planning to sign up to Spark’s deal, then you’ll have to commit to a Spark broadband or mobile monthly plan. But if you’re just looking for the best in broadband, Canstar Blue can help.
