Although PlayStation 5 owners have a wealth of SSD cards to choose from when upgrading their console storage, the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S require officially-licensed expansion cards from Seagate and Western Digital. And that has resulted in pricey solutions in the last few years.
However, thanks to amazing early Black Friday deals, you can now bump up your Xbox console storage by an extra 1TB or more on a budget.
That's because the original Seagate and more recently released WD_Black C50 Storage Expansion Cards for Xbox Series X/S are each available with a great discount.
The 1TB Seagate Storage Expansion Card is just $149 (a 32% price drop), while the 1TB WD_Black C50 Storage Expansion Card is now 17% cheaper, at $124.99.
There's also a UK deal on the 2TB WD_Black C50 Storage Expansion Card, which we detail further down.
