It may be refurbished but this deal is guaranteed to fly off the shelves at it's a whopping $150 discount! Refurbished is nothing to be scared of since you can rest assured that the product will function just as well or perhaps even better than a regular one. Plus, even if it doesn't, you can just bring it back to the store. This console has a 90-day manufacturer's limited warranty. Plus considering that video consoles are rather pircey at regular price, buying them refurbished is one of the best ways to save money. If you're buying it for your kids, then you could just tell them that Santa ran a little late on delivering all the presents this year. ;)
On its own, an Xbox One console typically retails for $399.99 and $499.99 with Kinect, so just $350 for both the console, Kinect and even a free digital copy of a game definitely pushes this deal over the edge.
The promotional picture shows that this console also comes with a digital download of Ryse: Son of Rome but according to the description, it also comes with a digital copy of Dance Central Spotlight.

If you plan on taking advantage of this deal, then make sure to also pick up an extra Xbox One controller as the console only comes with one. Earlier today, Avi blogged about a deal at The Source, where it's currently $39.99 instead of its usual price of $59.99.
