Amazon’s basically paying you to buy this Xbox One controller

If you like hot pink, that is.

We don’t know how picky you are about the way your Xbox One controller looks, but if you’ve always wanted the Dawn Shadow one, we have a deal for you.

Either the pink ombre model doesn’t sell, or Amazon’s just trying to be nice today, because it’s offering a free $15 gift card if you purchase the controller today. It’s also marked down to $69 from its usual $84.99.

However, there’s an Easter egg here. On the Xbox One controller page, there are two listings for the Dawn Shadow controller: the one with the gift certificate, and one by itself. Go to that one and you can get the controller for $58.49. You don’t get a gift certificate, but you do get the pleasure of getting the lowest price.

Buy it here.
