You are watching : microsoft xbox series x restock
As of 7:40am ET on June 4th, there will be no Xbox Series X restocks available. However, our Xbox Series X restock tracker indicates that several other retailers may restock in the coming days. Given that the developers haven’t scratched the surface of the Xbox Series X yet, now is a good time to prepare it for true next-gen gaming later this year. So check the links below for retailers to watch.
Xbox Series X: $499 @ Amazon
The Xbox Series X is the Microsoft’s new flagship console. It has 12 teraflops of graphics power, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD and Blu-ray drive. It runs games at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second with a maximum of 8K at 120 fps. The Editor’s Choice console represents the pinnacle of Microsoft’s gaming efforts. Amazon is sold out.
Xbox Series S: $299 @ Amazon
The Xbox Series S is a less expensive and less powerful version of the Xbox Series X. The Series S has a GPU with up to 4 teraflops of output, 10GB of RAM, 512GB of SSD storage and no disk drive. It has a maximum resolution of 1440p with 120 fps. Amazon is sold out.

Xbox Series X-Latest News and Rumors
It’s been a slow few weeks in terms of the Xbox Series X restock, but hopefully that will change soon. Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy may restock Microsoft’s bulky black box in the coming days, though nothing is confirmed.
Meanwhile, Target has just announced a major change in the way it handles Xbox Series X restocks. It will no longer be waiting to de-stock in batches as it does with PS5 Restock, instead Xbox Series X consoles will be available for purchase when stores receive stock.
This essentially means that Target will no longer have nationwide outages and instead the console will only be available when each individual location receives stock. We saw this new system go into effect on Tuesday (May 18) when several Target stores offered the Xbox Series X for sale.
Xbox Series X restock: track on Twitter
If you want to get a head start on the Xbox Series X restock, check these Twitter Accounts for the latest updates. We especially recommend following Xbox Series X Stock Alerts | S and Wario64 . The latter account tracks both Xbox restock and overall game sales.
While they don’t always warn you, it’s also a good rule of thumb to follow retailers on Twitter, like Best Buy and GameStop. Any advantage you can get is crucial when trying to schedule an Xbox Series X restock.
There’s a good reason why Microsoft’s new consoles are coming off the shelves. In our Xbox Series X review, we gave the new system top props for its blistering performance and fast load times, and comprehensive backwards compatibility with all Xbox generations. And, as we noted in our Xbox Series S review, the cheapest next-gen Xbox still offers many of the same great features as 1080p TVs.
With that in mind, see the latest Xbox Series X stock updates and tips for getting your new console from Microsoft below.

Best Buy is one of many stores selling the Xbox Series X. Best Buy tends to restock on Thursdays and Fridays, although they’ve also held a Monday restock.

Where to buy Xbox Series X buying tips and resources
(Image credit: Tom’s Guide)
Apart from refreshing retailer websites, there are other tips you can use to increase your chances of scoring an Xbox Series X. One secret Amazon tip which we tested allowed us to put an Xbox Series X in our shopping cart four times without fail. In addition, there are other online channels you can check to see when a unit might become available.
On Twitter, we suggest following @Wario64. The handle is known for updating users on the latest deals and restocks faster than anyone else on the platform.
Slickdeals, the online deal repository, has a forum thread dedicated to ordering an Xbox Series X through Microsoft. The thread is constantly being updated, so jump to the last page and click refresh for the latest intel on when units will become available.
PopFindr is a site that checks local retail inventories based on your zip code. For example, you can check local Target stores in your area to see if any Xbox Series X’s are available. Do note, that just because it shows in stock, it might be out of stock by the time you arrive at the store.
It’s also not a bad idea to make an account on Slickdeals and set a deal alert for “Xbox Series X.” You’ll get an email alert when a new thread is made about replenished stock. But we’ve found that sometimes Slickdeals doesn’t email users fast enough. So it might be better to type in “Xbox Series X” in the search bar and sort by new. Be willing to check in multiple times a day.
CheapAssGamer is a long-running video game deals website that too has a forum thread dedicated to the Xbox Series X. As of writing, the thread is over 63 pages long, and users are discussing where to find units.
Facebook and Reddit
Facebook too can be a good source of information. There are multiple Xbox Series X fan groups that keep users up to date on where the latest restocks are happening. Feel free to join a few of these groups.
And be sure to subscribe to the Xbox Series X subreddit. Sure, most of the page is dedicated to discussions and memes, but if a user notices a restock, they’ll let the community know. For example, one user found Xbox Series X units in stock at their local Walmart, with others too discussing similar finds. Again, it seems that some Walmart locations may be holding on to units to sell on Cyber Monday.
Another set of retailers to keep an eye on are subscription-based wholesalers like Costco, Sam’s Club, and BJ’s Wholesale Club. Because it requires a paid account to get access to these wholesalers, there are often fewer people jumping over each other to find a unit. If you don’t have a subscription to any of these retailers, ask a few friends or family members.
Unfortunately, wholesalers tend to bundle new consoles with either extra games or accessories. So you will likely have to pay more than the standard $500.
Check at specific hours
Generally, retailers like to make stock available at certain times. The time when new Xbox Series X stock is most likely to be made available is at midnight ET, on certain days. Check all the retailers and you just might get lucky.
Other retailers favor times like 7 a.m. ET, for when customers wake up, while others will aim at midday to give everyone the best chance of finding a new Xbox Series X console.
If the units are out of stock online, it might be worth going to a physical location. You must bring your membership card, or go with someone who has a membership. And be sure to wear a face mask (over your nose) or retail associates will ask you to leave. If none are available in store, then at least you can walk out with a $5 rotisserie chicken.
Xbox Series X deals
Unfortunately, there are no Xbox Series X deals to report on at the moment. Demand for Microsoft’s console is so high — and supply so low — that retailers simply have no incentive to offer Xbox Series X deals. In fact, we don’t expect to see any Xbox Series X deals till the next major retail holiday — Prime Day. And when Xbox Series X deals do show up, we expect the sales to come in the form of bundles and freebies rather than dollar-off discounts.
However, it’s possible to score Xbox Series X deals on games and accessories. Amazon frequently has Xbox controllers and accessories on sale, whereas Best Buy usually has multiple games on sale.
Xbox Series X restock — avoid the scalpers
One of the reasons for Xbox Series X and Series S stock shortages is due to scalpers snapping up large amounts of next-gen consoles in one big sweep and then selling them for extortionate prices; we’re taking thousands of dollars for a $499 games console.
VGC reported that a now infamous PS5 scalper group going by the name of CrepChiefNotify managed to snap up 1,000 Xbox Series X consoles as soon as they became available at U.K. retailer Very. But in a twist of fate, Very cancelled 1,000 Xbox Series X pre-orders, somewhat torpedoing the efforts of the scalpers.
As frustrating as it can be to find an Xbox Series X or Series S, we suggest you avoid buying a console from these scalpers. Paying massively over the odds for a console that doesn’t have a huge range of new Xbox Series X games isn’t a shrewd move in our opinion. If you can hold out, Microsoft should have more Xbox Series X units to ship, as well as the promise of more exclusive games for the console.
