Sony PlayStation 5 gaming systems are always tricky to find, to the point where every restock is a major event. In the past, restocks at stores like Target, Walmart, and Amazon have sold out within minutes. Fortunately, they’ve been lasting a little longer in recent months. If you have a PS5 on your wish list, keep track of PS5 restocks at a variety of retailers. This will help you score one without paying marked-up resale prices.

Right now, we’re watching Walmart. They’re usually our best bet. Though we can never predict when consoles are in stock, they’re usually restocking the Sony PS5 console the most. They have consoles in stock in store and online today.

In general, retailers announce restocks in advance; some have notification lists you can join, and others you might just have to regularly check on. We’ve gathered all the info on PS5 restocks at Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Target, and more into one place. Check back for updates on where and when the PS5 will be restocked.

Here’s where to get the PS5 in stock now:

Walmart shoppers can shop the PS5 in store and online today.

Walmart has the PS5 in stock online and in store. You can finally order them for store pickup (something we’ve been waiting for for months).

If you find one online, make sure it’s not sold by a third-party reseller, as that won’t always be the best deal. You’d be able to shop the Sony PS5 console on this page (PlayStation 5 Digital Edition – God of War Ragnarok Bundle for $459 and PlayStation 5 Console – God of War Ragnarok Bundle for $559).

Some background on Walmart+: you can become a Walmart+ member to get early access to deals and restocks, like PS5 releases. Just know that the Walmart+ membership costs $98 per year or $12.95 monthly. This membership includes early access to special events, like up to seven hours of early access to hot Black Friday deals. Also as a member, you score video streaming through Paramount+, free shipping, free delivery, and $0.10 per gallon fuel savings at participating gas stations.

Also, as of Jan 5. Sam’s Club had the PS5 in stock as a bundle. The PlayStation 5 Console God of War: Ragnarok + Wireless DualSense Controller + DualSense Charging Station was being offered for $656.97.



Target has a few in stock online now.

As of Jan. 24, Target has some inventory online. They also might have some PS5 consoles available in some stores. For your best bet, call up your local store or visit in person.

Target restocked the PS5 on Dec. 24 and earlier on Nov. 9 when the God of War Ragnarok game was released. It sold out within minutes. The bundle included a PS5 gaming console and a copy of the new game. According to their website, the bundle cost $459.99, while just a PS5 console typically retails for $499.99. Target typically restocks the PS5 at individual stores rather than a huge restock online, so check out your local Target regularly if you missed this restock.


Best Buy restocked the PS5 on Dec. 14, but we haven’t seen restocks since then.

Best Buy restocked the PS5 online on Dec. 14, and this quickly sold out. If you don’t want to miss the next restock, Best Buy recommends becoming a TotalTech member. This’ll give you exclusive access to releases of popular products like the PS5. And no, you don’t need a membership to buy a PS5 at Best Buy — it’ll just increase your chances of getting one. However, a membership costs $199.99 per year, almost half the price of the PS5. So it’s probably only worth signing up if you shop Best Buy a lot and will use the other perks. Those include 24/7 tech support from Geek Squad, free shipping, up to 24 months of product protection on purchases, and extended 60-day returns.

Join the wait list on Amazon for quick updates and alerts.

Though Amazon doesn’t currently have the PS5 in stock, you can request an invitation to buy one when they do. The retailer will send you an email when the console becomes available (and you don’t have to be an Amazon Prime member to do it). Right now, you can request an invite to buy the PS5 Horizon West bundle, which includes the console plus the Horizon West game.

The most recent batch of invitations just went out on Nov. 4. But some invitations for this restock may still go out if you join the list because each person who receives an invite has 72 hours to make their purchase. If they don’t buy it, an invite gets sent to the next person on the list. There’s no guarantee you’ll receive a purchase link if you request one, but it’s an easier way to keep track of restocks. Right now, you can only request an invitation for the Horizon West Bundle, but Amazon has used a similar system for just the PS5 console in the past.


Become a rewards member at GameStop to get product announcements.

If you’re already part of GameStop’s PowerUp Rewards Pro program, you’ll be first in line when the retailer restocks the PS5 later this month. Sometimes GameStop announces restocks through their newsletter, but in-store and online sales have been limited to rewards program members. If you want to become a member, it costs $14.99 per year and will give you early access to console restocks and other collectibles. You’ll also get perks like a $10 off welcome reward, a $5 monthly reward, and 2% back in rewards made on every purchase. If you’re a frequent GameStop shopper already, it might be worth the membership for early access to PS5 restocks.


Request an invite from Sony to keep track of PS5 restocks.

Similar to Amazon, Sony lets buyers request an invitation to purchase a PS5 or a PS5 bundle during restocks. Sony manufactures the PS5, so it’s a reliable way to eventually score a console. However, they’re usually one of the slower retailers to restock. Requesting an invite doesn’t guarantee you’ll end up with a PS5, but you will get notified when the console becomes available.
