Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could get a new console without having to buy for it upfront or be obligated to have a credit card to charge? Microsoft is launching the Xbox All Access program which lets people in the U.S get a new Xbox One X or S console plus 24-month subscriptions to both Xbox services on a two-year plan.
The all included service Xbox All Access is, for now, available only in the United States and lets selected users to get a new Xbox console with two different plans, all stretching down to two years of payments. What you’ll have to do is head to a Microsoft store, select the console of your choice and create a Dell Preferred Account which will let you get the console plus 24 months of Xbox Live and Game Pass with a monthly fee.
Here are the two plans announced:
Starting at $34.99/month^ with Xbox All Access – Includes an Xbox One X console + 24 months of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold
Starting at $21.99/month^ with Xbox All Access – Includes an Xbox One S console + 24 months of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold
With Xbox All Access, you are purchasing the console and the 24-month Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold memberships, in full, immediately upon purchase. Outside of the standard Microsoft Store return policy, you cannot return or cancel the console or the 24-month Xbox Game Pass or Xbox Live Gold memberships, which seems a logical policy given the terms.
Let’s look at the specifics. In order to be a member of the Xbox All Access program, you’ll have to be approved to own a DPA. DPA (Dell Preferred Account) is a revolving line of credit which allows you to pay for your purchase all at once or gives you the flexibility to make monthly payments. With this account, there is no prepayment penalty.
Unfortunately, the Xbox All Access service is available exclusively in the United States and there is no word of whether or not it will be released throughout the world. Additionally, it won’t be available forever, so if you want to get a new Xbox One console, be quick about it.
