    PS5 restock sold out at Walmart — where to find inventory next – Toms Guide

    Update: Walmart is now sold out of consoles. Make sure to follow our PS5 restock guide for news on the next drop. We’re also rounding up the best early Walmart Black Friday deals you can shop now. 

    Get ready! Another Walmart PS5 restock is happening now. The mega-retailer already took fresh orders of the in-demand machine on both Monday and Tuesday, but appears to have enough stock to drop one more drop before the week ends.

    You can now get the PS5 for $499 via this link or the PS5 Digital for $399 via this link. Additionally, you can get the Xbox Series X for $499 via this link. It doesn’t appear like you need to be a Walmart Plus member to get your console. However, we’re noticing Walmart has resurrected its virtual queue for this console drop. We’re also seeing the “press and hold” button return. As of 3:52 p.m. — the restock is still going. 

    (As a reminder, Plus subscribers getting early access to Walmart Black Friday deals, and possibly future PS5 restocks).

    This will be Walmart’s third restock of the week, but hopeful shoppers are already bracing themselves for a potentially disastrous drop. That’s because Walmart’s last two PS5 restocks did not run smoothly at all. The first caused extreme screen flickering, and the second was a mess of technical issues, with many users unable to get past the CAPTCHA verification stage. Let’s hope the retailer has ironed out these kinks.

    It’s worth remembering that during a restock, Walmart releases stock every 10 to 15 minutes throughout the hour. So, if it shows up as sold out after a few seconds, refresh the page and check again as the restock will likely last throughout the hour. Walmart may require you to “press and hold” a buy button to ensure you’re not a bot trying to buy up consoles — although this stage of the process caused serious headaches during the last Walmart PS5 restock.  

    It’s also been confirmed that Walmart will hold an Xbox Series X restock at the same time as its latest PS5 restock. It’s not uncommon for the retailer to offer both next-gen consoles at the same time. So, whichever highly sought-after machine you want, make sure to keep it locked to Walmart this afternoon. We similarly don’t yet know if you’ll need to be a Walmart Plus member to secure an Xbox Series X during this drop.  

    If you’re unsuccessful during this latest Walmart PS5 restock, or it’s ultimately gated behind a Walmart Plus paywall, don’t give up hope. Now that Black Friday deals have arrived we’re expecting plenty of retailers to use the allure of a next-gen console restock to draw customers to their websites. So, keep our PS5 restock hub bookmarked and we’ll flag any updates the second we get them. 

    Walmart restock event — tips and tricks

    The first thing you’ll want to do is create a Walmart.com account if you don’t already have one. Enter your address and credit card info so that in the event you score a console, you can quickly check out. You’ll also want to know the correct landing pages for the PS5 at Walmart. (You’ll find the links above). 

    Once the consoles are available at Walmart you’ll have to act lightning-fast to secure a console and purchase it. However, it’s worth noting that Walmart tends to release inventory every 10 to 15 minutes. So if you don’t score a console on your first attempt, keep trying. Generally speaking, Walmart restocks have lasted from 1 hour to as long as 3 hours, so it pays to stick around and keep trying. 

    Many have reported that adding the PS5 to a shopping list has helped them score a PS5. To do this, sign into your Walmart account and go to the PS5 product page at Walmart. Click the “add to list” icon underneath the console’s image. You’ll then be prompted to create a name for your wish list. 

    The next time Walmart has PS5 restock, you should be able to add the console to your cart via your wish list (instead of going to the product page and waiting for it to show up in stock). Again, your mileage may vary with this tactic, but it’s worked in the past.
