Outside of the holidays, discounts on Microsoft’s Xbox One wireless controller for console and Windows 10 are rare, but it’s available again at Walmart and Amazon for $39.99, which is $20 off of its original price.

Enhanced over the version that first launched with the Xbox One, this revised controller features a 3.5mm headphone jack for private listening and chatting, as well as Bluetooth functionality for operability with Windows 10 computers. I’ve also had luck using this controller with Valve’s now-defunct Steam Link. If your PC doesn’t have Bluetooth or if you just want a wired connection, you’ll have to pay a little more for the model that includes a Micro USB cable for immediate plug-and-play recognition.

Updated 10:22AM ET, January 8th: This deal is back from the dead, and is available at both Walmart and Amazon at the time of writing.
