As with the launch of all new consoles, they’re being used extensively in promotions. What this means for you, the Xbox Series X and Series S, is that there’s lots of ways to win some new hardware for free.
We’ve scoured the internet to find a collection of contests and promotions which are offering these new consoles for free. These are all live in South Africa right now, and open for you to enter.
Before we get into the list, we’d just like to point out that we have no relation to the organisers of these giveaways. Said organisers may change the details and rules of their promotions on a whim, so check their official channels when you enter.
As we stated in our similar PlayStation 5 roundup the benefit to you, the reader, is that you can take part in all of these promotions as they are each run by different organisations.
Entry mechanisms here range wildly, from simply filling out a form to win, all the way to buying a whole new car. The latter is from Kia which is giving away the Series S and a year of Game Pass for each purchase of the Picanto Style. While that’s completely excessive, it’s the only inclusion on this list which is a sure thing, as the rest are random contests.
How to enter: Go to this Google Form and fill it out. That’s it.
