Xbox is giving away free gift cards to use on Xbox One and Xbox Series X games this Black Friday. But as is usually the case with this type of gifts, they are limited and apparently handed out at random. If you have deja vu, it’s because Microsoft has done the same exact thing in previous years. And once again, the giveaway coincides with the big ol ‘Black Friday Sale that is currently taking place in the Microsoft Store.
At the moment, it is unclear how limited the giveaway is, but unlike many giveaways of this kind, it does not appear to be locked into a single region, where both Europeans and North Americans report that they have been at the receiving end of the giveaway , which is for $ 5.
Of course, the free $ 5 can be used, but you will. In other words, it does not need to be used on the above sales. You can use it to purchase any game, add-on, or movie, but it must be in the Microsoft Store.
When and if Xbox provides more information about the giveaway, including what regions it is available in, how limited it is, and if it plans further waves, we will update the story with the information provided. In the meantime, be on the lookout for an Xbox notification.

H / T, pure Xbox.
