Xbox Series X restocks: Track on Twitter
For the most recent information on Xbox Series X restocks, keep an eye on one of the following Twitter feeds. The Xbox Series X|S Stock Alerts(opens in new tab) and Wario64 Twitter feeds are two to keep an eye on (opens in new tab). The latter account records both Xbox restocks as well as general gaming sales.
While they won’t always give you a heads up, it’s also a good rule of thumb to follow retailers on Twitter, such as Best Buy(opens in new tab) and GameStop(opens in new tab) (opens in new tab). Any edge you can obtain is vital when trying to score an Xbox Series X refill.
For a good reason, the new Xbox systems from Microsoft are flying off the shelves. In our Xbox Series X review, we lauded the new system for its lightning-fast performance, snappy startup times, and backwards compatibility with every Xbox generation. The less expensive Xbox Series S, as we mentioned in our Xbox Series S review, nonetheless offers many of the same fantastic features for people who have 1080p TVs, as we pointed out.
With that in mind, see the latest Xbox Series X stock updates and recommendations for receiving your new Microsoft console below.

Where to buy Xbox Series X buying tips and resources
You can improve your chances of getting an Xbox Series X by doing more than just refreshing shop websites. It was possible to place an Xbox Series X in our shopping cart four times with one Amazon trick that we tested. Additionally, you can keep an eye on many other websites to see if a unit becomes available.
On Twitter, we suggest following @Wario64. The handle is well-known on the site for providing consumers with the most up-to-date information on sales and restocks.
Slickdeals, the online deal repository, has a forum thread(opens in new tab) dedicated to ordering an Xbox Series X through Microsoft. To get the most up-to-date information on when units will be available, go to the last page of the thread and click refresh.
PopFindr(opens in new tab) is a site that monitors local retail inventory depending on your zip code. You may, for example, discover if any Xbox Series Xs are available at your local Target. Do note, that just because it shows in stock, it can be out of stock by the time you arrive to the store.
It’s also not a terrible idea to register an account on Slickdeals and set a discount alert for “Xbox Series X.” You’ll get an email alert when a new topic is made concerning refilled stock. But we’ve observed that sometimes Slickdeals doesn’t email users soon enough. As a result, it’s probably best to use the search bar and sort by “Xbox Series X.” Be willing to check in numerous times a day.
CheapAssGamer is a long-running video game sales website that too has a forum topic dedicated(opens in new tab) to the Xbox Series X. As of writing, the topic is almost 63 pages old, and users are discussing where to find units.
Facebook and Reddit
It’s also possible that Facebook is an excellent source of data. There are several Xbox Series X fan clubs that keep members up to date on where the latest restocks are happening. If you’d like, you can join a handful of these organizations.
And be sure to subscribe to the Xbox Series X subreddit(opens in new tab) (opens in new tab). Sure, majority of the website is dedicated to conversations and memes, but if a user detects a refill, they’ll let the community know. For example, one user found Xbox Series X systems in stock at their local Walmart(opens in new tab), with others too noting similar finds. Again, it looks that some Walmart outlets 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 obtain access to these wholesalers, there are frequently fewer people jumping over each other to find a unit. If you don’t have a subscription to any of these businesses, ask a few friends or family members.
Unfortunately, wholesalers tend to bundle new consoles with either excess games or accessories. So you will likely have to pay more than the customary $500.
Check at specific hours
It is common practice for shops to make inventory available only during specific hours. The time when new Xbox Series X stock is most likely to be made available is at midnight ET, on particular days. Check all the retailers and you just might get lucky.
Other merchants choose hours like 7 a.m. ET, for when customers wake up, while others will aim around midday to give everyone the best opportunity of finding a new Xbox Series X system.
If the units are out of stock online, it could be worth travelling 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) otherwise retail personnel will ask you to leave. If none are available in store, then at least you may walk out with a $5 rotisserie chicken
Xbox Series X deals
There aren’t any Xbox Series X deals available right now, so we’re sorry. Because of the great demand and tight availability for Microsoft’s system, retailers are unable to provide Xbox Series X promotions. And when Xbox Series X bargains 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 snag Xbox Series X bargains on games and accessories. When it comes to Xbox peripherals, Amazon typically has sales on controllers and other gear, whereas Best Buy frequently has deals on games.
Xbox Series X restock — avoid the scalpers
Scalpers buying up large quantities of next-generation consoles and then selling them for exorbitant prices are one of the reasons for Xbox Series X and Series S stock shortages; we’re taking thousands of dollars for a $499 games console
Once-famous PS5 scalpers known as CrepChiefNotify managed to get their hands on the first batch of Xbox Series X consoles when Very in the UK started selling them. However, fate intervened when Very cancelled 1,000 pre-orders for the Xbox Series X, putting an end to the hustle 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. We don’t think it’s a smart move to spend a lot of money on a console that won’t have a lot of new Xbox Series X games. 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.
A note on Xbox Series X restocks
Xbox Series X restock has gotten easier to find in stock, but it can still sell out fast. Despite our best attempts to provide you with frequent updates, Tom’s Guide cannot guarantee that you will be able to purchase an Xbox in the foreseeable future. All restocks will be reported as soon as they are available, however, as our promise to you.
