Just in time for the holidays, Walmart has confirmed a PS5 and Xbox Series X restock that is happening today at 3pm ET. This will be exclusive to Walmart+ members and given how quickly these restocks sell out, this will probably be one of your best chances to pick one up.

We’re big fans of both the PS5 and Xbox Series X, and it’s pretty clear a lot of you are too, as it’s become phenomenally hard to pick one up this year! But to get one this week, while not discounted, may just be the best Black Friday buy of the whole sales season.

Plus, if you get lucky, we have a truckload of PS5 Black Friday deals and Xbox Black Friday savings to recommend.

How to buy a PS5 or Xbox Series X in the latest Walmart restock?

Simple! You need Walmart+. Not only does this service get you access to these console stock drops, you will also get access to all of Walmart’s Black Friday deals a whole four hours before anyone else. 

Walmart+ subscription: $12.95 per month or $98 per year (opens in new tab)

Beyond the benefits listed above, Walmart+ also grants you free delivery and shipping, cheaper fuel and Rx, and a Scan and Go service that streamlines your shopping experience by allowing you to scan in-store items and pay for them entirely on your phone.

Doing it this way will definitely increase your chances of picking up one of the latest consoles, but it’s still not for certain. So, as is always the case with limited stock drops, make sure you have a full account setup and have your payment details up-to-date. That way, the buying process is as seamless as possible.
