Update: Walmart is now sold out of PS5 consoles. Make sure to follow our PS5 restock guide for updates on the next console drop. Plus, check out our Black Friday PS5 deals coverage for discounts on games and accessories.
Walmart PS5 restock is now live. The retailer has PS5 restock available as of 3 p.m. ET today (November 9). Best of all, unlike yesterday’s restock, today’s console drop is open to the general public. (No Walmart Plus membership is required).
You can now get the PS5 for $499 via this link or the PS5 Digital for $399 via this link. You’ll need to sign into your Walmart account and you may be added to a wait list to purchase the console. Walmart has offered the most PS5 restocks of any retailer in the last few days. It held three restocks last week and another restock on Monday.
Walmart PS5 restock (sold out)
The last few Walmart PS5 restocks did not run smoothly. One restock last week 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.
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.
