Credit Card Hack: How to get a free Xbox One on sign up

Information verified correct on December 10th, 2016

Are you a gamer shopping for a credit card? Score an Xbox One package while you’re at it.

Xbox Live has over 40 million registered users worldwide. Each of those users has a credit card attached to that account. All too often in Australia, we sign up for a credit card with online purchases and service registration in mind without considering the benefits and rewards that different credit cards in Australia offer. Below are finder.com.au’s top hack for making the most out of your next credit card.

How to get an Xbox One package on sign up

These credit cards have rewards systems in place that give you enough bonus points on sign up that you can use to redeem gift cards. Affiliated retailers include JB Hi-Fi, Westfield and Harvey Norman. You can redeem up to $500 in cards by signing up to one of the credit cards below - effectively covering the cost for an Xbox One package.

Disclaimer: It should be noted that most these cards have an annual fee. In some cases, the annual fee is still lower than the RRP of an Xbox One.
