Xbox Series X restock dates: when will Best Buy, Walmart and GameStop restock

The Xbox Series X restock date and time for each retailer will be tweeted as soon as the Microsoft console is back in stock at any store, including Best Buy, Walmart, GameStop, Target and Amazon, among others. You can follow our Xbox restock Twitter tracker, Matt Swider, as his account points you to the US retailer with next-gen console inventory – while it lasts. It often sells out in three minutes or less.

Antonline Xbox Series X restock date

  • Next restock date: Likely this week – always at least one next-gen drop weekly
  • Last Xbox Series X restock date: Wednesday, March 17
  • Wait time: Online only, fast shipping (sells out quickly)
  • Follow our Twitter tracker to get alerts

Antonline has a console restock at least once a week, according to the retailer's official Twitter account, and that means we can expect to see the Xbox Series X in stock soon. Antonline has become the surprise favorite store of gamers since the next-gen consoles launched in November because ships consoles fast. It also doesn't play games with its add to cart button during a restock. Just be prepared to pay face value for games and accessories, which we see as a benefit as it turns off resellers.

Target Xbox Series X restock date

The next Target Xbox restock may be Thursday, April 8. You see, we usually get a next-gen restock from Target every two weeks, and while we did see an off-schedule and very limited PS5 restock on Wednesday, March 30 and before that the usual Thursday, March 25 (two weeks after the prior drop on March 11), there was no Xbox on sale on the latter date. So Target may go four weeks between Xbox drops. 

Know this: Target likes to go early – we've been seeing stocks between 7am EDT and 9am EDT. Sorry, everyone in the West coast of the United States. The last time we saw the Xbox drop it was at around 6am PDT.

Here's our Target Xbox Series X restock alert from Thursday, March 11:


Best Buy Xbox Series X restock date

The Xbox Series X restock at Walmart and Best Buy didn't happen as expected last week, and we know of new inventory at Best Buy warehouses. That's good news if you're eager to buy Xbox Series X in April. Stores in the US are stockpiling the Microsoft consoles, and we hope to see it from Walmart, Best Buy and Amazon; all are now overdue for a restock.

We usually see Xbox Series X orders open up at Best Buy on Fridays at 12pm EDT / 11am CDT / 10am MDT / 9am PDT, or a few minutes after that time. We've seen it as late as 3:15pm EDT once, however, Best Buy completely missed this window. There's now more hope that it'll have an even bigger restock on Friday, April 9.


GameStop Xbox Series X restock date

The GameStop Xbox Series X restock could be later this week or early next week, as the games retailer has been sticking to a week to week-and-a-half cadence. We did see a rare morning restock on Friday, April 2, however, that was limited to Xbox Series S bundles (and PS5), so we're not sure if that counts or not (we do know that most retailers we talk to have fewer Xbox Series X consoles on hand than any other next-gen console, so the Series X being skipped over isn't very surprising).

The last Xbox Series X drop was Tuesday, March 23, so we're overdue for a restock. Note: GameStop routinely restricts its Xbox Series X restock to bundles, and while it can cost more, it makes buying the new Xbox much easier because resellers have a more difficult time profiting from the packed-in games and accessories (which are all readily available). We usually know in advance when a GameStop restock happens.

Our Xbox Series X restock Twitter tracker alert for GameStop will look like:


Walmart Xbox Series X restock date

No Walmart Xbox Series X restock happened on Thursday, April 1 at 2:30pm EDT / 11:30am PDT, even if the retailer has been doing every other Thursday for the last month. Looking more broadly, it does have a one-month gap between cycles, so we might not see the Xbox Series X back in stock before Thursday, April 18, according to that broader pattern. The next PS5 Walmart restock date will almost certainly rely on how much inventory it has at its warehouses, meaning its cadence can change.

Here's what our last Walmart Xbox stock alert looked like on March 18:


Best Buy Xbox Series X restock date

There has been a next-gen restock at Best Buy for six weeks in a row on a Friday, and while the Microsoft console missed one of those weeks (there was still a PS5 restock to keep the trend alive), the retailer didn't go seven-for-seven this week. But all the more reason we expect inventory to shift to next Friday.

We typically see the restock time occur between 12pm and 3pm EDT. Remember, this is an online-only order with an in-store pickup, usually scheduled for 3 to 5 days later.


Amazon Xbox Series X restock date

We saw a surprise Xbox Series X restock at Amazon on Tuesday, March 23, and our restock tracker sent out an alert as soon as it happened. Even with that, the restock lasted just two minutes for the Series X. We also saw the Series S in stock it lasted a bit longer, but it has since sold out. There have only been a handful of Amazon Xbox restock dates since the console launched in November 2020, so we're unsure of when it'll be back in stock. We'll update this section when we know more.

New: We've been told by one source that they've seen more Xbox Series X consoles in warehouses that PS5 consoles, so we may actually be due another round of the Microsoft console before we ever see another restock from its biggest rival.

Here's what our Amazon Xbox restock alert looked like on Tuesday, March 23


Microsoft Xbox Series X restock date

The official Microsoft Xbox store often has the Series X console in stock throughout the week, however, it sells out in three minutes or less, according to our restock Twitter tracker account. 

The secret: some people either cancel their orders midway through the process, or their credit card gets rejected, so do keep refreshing when we send out the Xbox restock alert. You may get lucky in scooping up a console that gets kicked back into the inventory system after five or fifteen minutes.
