Update November 18 at 3:55 p.m. ET: Walmart has sold out its PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles. We’ll be sure to keep you posted when we hear about another round of free and paid restocking.
Console restockings are becoming more and more frequent these days – especially as the Black Friday season heats up and the first Black Friday deals continue to roll out – but retailers have quickly eliminated the herd of potential customers by putting inventory behind paid subscription services. Walmart has a next-gen console replenishment happening today at 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT, however, it’s exclusive to paid Walmart Plus subscribers. You can line up to buy a PlayStation 5 on disc for $ 500, a PlayStation 5 Digital Edition for $ 400, or an Xbox Series X console for $ 500.
Make sure to sign into your Walmart Plus account in advance, and it’s always a good practice to save your billing and shipping to your account in advance. Note that you will need to be a paid Walmart Plus subscriber to have a chance to purchase any of these three consoles, as a free trial account will not be accepted.
A Walmart Plus membership costs $ 13 per month or $ 98 per year and promises early and special access to deals, such as console restockings like this and a four-hour early window on Black Friday deals. It also includes free shipping options similar to competitors like Amazon Prime.
