PS5 and Xbox Series X will be restocked Thursday for Walmart Plus subscribers
In case you haven’t noticed, it’s getting less and less infuriating to get your hands on a PS5 or Xbox Series X. Granted, it’s still harder than it should be, but the Recent retailer restocks have taken longer to sell than before. So we hope you can pick up the console of your choice during tomorrow’s restock at Walmart, which is specifically for paying Walmart Plus subscribers.
Starting at 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT on Thursday, January 13, Walmart will offer the $499.99 PS5 with a disc drive, the $399.99 PS5 console that can only play digital titles, as well as the Xbox Series X at $499.99. These consoles will be available to Walmart Plus members without a trial, which means you actually have to sign up to pay Walmart for the service to have access to them (here’s where you can sign up for Walmart Plus). However, Walmart calls these offers “early access,” perhaps suggesting they’ll open up to non-Plus customers after a window of time. In the past, the exclusivity window was three hours.
To make the checkout process easier, make sure you have your shipping and payment information ready ahead of time.
