Get ready to grab your PS5 or Xbox Series X. As part of its Cyber Monday deals, Walmart has confirmed that it will have PS5 restock and Xbox Series X restock on Cyber Monday (November 29). 

Walmart Plus members will get exclusive access to the restocks, which will start at 12 p.m. ET. Membership costs $98 per year, although there’s also a $12.95/month option. You cannot get early access to either restock if you’ve got a free trial account, so you’ll need to have a paid Walmart Plus subscription to participate.

It’s worth remembering that Walmart releases stock every 10 to 15 minutes throughout the hour during a restock. So if either console shows up as sold out after a few seconds, refresh the page and check again as the restock will likely last around an hour. Walmart may require you to “press and hold” a buy button to ensure you’re not a bot trying to buy up consoles.

If you’re unsuccessful during this latest Walmart PS5 restock, or refuse to sign up for Walmart Plus, don’t give up hope. We’re bound to see more restocks throughout the holiday season. 

Walmart restock event — tips and tricks

The first thing you’ll want to do is create a 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 checkout. 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 try, 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.
