Hoping for a PS5 restock this week? Here are some tips on how to get the console
A PS5 restock seems likely this week, but how do you break through the crowds and secure a PlayStation for yourself? We've got few tips, but it mostly comes down to one thing: sheer bloody-mindedness. Our team of bargain hunters has been doing this for a while now, and it's safe to say that the key to success is persistence (and a bit of luck). With that in mind, be sure to learn when drops are likely to happen (more on that in a moment). Secondly, check with retailers regularly: deals can and often do appear without warning, so you never know when you might get lucky.
So, when is a PS5 restock expected this week? It's tough to say for sure, but Walmart is overdue a drop so could well offer units this Thursday from around 3pm EST judging by previous trends (if Walmart goes at all, it's usually on a Thursday afternoon). Meanwhile, there's a chance we'll see some Target deals this Wednesday - that's certainly what happened last week.
What about Amazon, then? Annoyingly, it could get a PS5 restock at any moment. The last drop was on a Saturday at 3am EST, so it's difficult to predict. As such, check in every now and then as a just-in-case.
While you wait, be sure to watch for Twitter trends and stock trackers as well. They're a good early warning system when it comes to PS5 stock.
