We’re less than two weeks out from the holiday break, and you’re probably drowning in holiday work parties, visits to relatives and general shopping trauma. Even if you’re avoiding the insane crowds at the mall and shopping online, there are deals being thrown at you all over the place, depending on what you’ve posted and said to your friends. A message that says, “Dying for a drink of water” can get you ads for a Waterpic flosser, a water bra (they do still make those) … heck, it’s even likely to bring up something about a water buffalo, and we’re pretty sure none of your friends are asking for that for the holidays! Take a break! Soothe your weary holiday mind with some Fortnite Battle Royale, or a nice Christmas movie like Die Hard. Here are the best deals on Xbox One for the week ending December 16.
