You can follow the restock availability of the PlayStation 5 on Twitter and find out exactly when to buy a PlayStation 5 in your area. The best way to do this is by following the official account of Sony on Twitter, as well as accounts such as @GYXdeals, @mattswider, @PS5Drop, and even Wario64! Depending on the retailer, the restock might only happen on certain days of the week, but you can always check out a Twitter account and see when it’ll be restocked.
PlayStation 5 restocks are common at all major retailers:
PlayStation 5 restocks are frequent at most major retailers, especially Target, but they are also common at Walmart. Unlike Target, Walmart has no in-store pickup policy, so your chances of snagging hardware during a restock are lower. But if you’re desperate to buy one, you might consider reserving it online from a trusted source. However, keep in mind that restocks on Amazon are common too, and that you’ll need to be vigilant.
Amazon restocks in 90 seconds:
PS5 fans can rejoice. It has been a week since Best Buy restocked, but Walmart and GameStop have restocked it on a daily basis. If you’re curious about how to find out when they’ll restock, you can follow the retailer’s Twitter account. It tweets about upcoming PS5 restocks 90 minutes in advance.
Gamestop restocks twice a month:
The PlayStation 5 has been coming back in stock at Gamestop every couple of months, and the retailer has just announced a new event. The restock will be taking place on January 27 and April 23, and bundles will be available in US stores. If you want to get your hands on one, you can sign up for their PowerUp Pro Rewards program. Become a member, and you will be notified via email when the PlayStation 5 comes back in stock.
Walmart restocks on Thursdays:
The PlayStation 5 is new and incredibly popular. It can be hard to find PlayStation 5 inventory, because stores often push bundles and hide it behind a paywall. Amazon has come up with a solution to this problem. The company will restock PS5 on Thursdays, with the first restock occurring on January 27. Subscribe to Amazon Prime to get an alert before the first retail store drops the PS5.
Best Buy restocks behind a paywall:
Several months ago, Best Buy announced that it was restocking the PlayStation 5 behind a paywall. But this time, there is a catch: you have to be a Walmart+ member to access it. Amazon users do not need to be Prime members to access it. All you have to do is click on the yellow “Request Invitation” button on the PS5 product page and an email will be sent to you with a special link to access the restock.
