PS5 restock: Sony Direct, Target and Walmart – when PS5 will be for sale


Wednesday update: Our PS5 restock Twitter tracker Matt Swider will send you an alert when PS5 is back in stock, and Target, Walmart and Best Buy are the next US stores that Matt is monitoring. There are no known stores with PS5 for sale today, April 21, but we did see several stores with the Sony console yesterday: Sony Direct, Newegg and Costco. Matt’s Twitter account is ready with alerts for Sam’s Club and Antonline when the stores do a PS5 restock. All of American retailers may not have regular next-gen console stock until 2022. 

Matt will send an alert as soon as PS5 is for sale – if you follow his Twitter account.

The PS5 restock news today was good if you were fast enough to get our alerts – and hundreds of people were able to secure the Sony console. April 20 saw Sony Direct, Costco, and Newegg with inventory, albeit limited.

We’re focused on four stores for April 21 and the remainder of the week: Target, Walmart and Best Buy. Although none are confirmed, Thursday, April 22 for Target and Walmart, and Friday April 23 for Best Buy would be a natural date and time for these US retailers. 

We know that some Target PS5 inventory has been building up over the last month at their local stores, and we should have a heads-up from our sources and those of Jake Randall. Look for that PS5 restock Twitter tracker update soon. Since it’s now Tuesday, April 20, the restock may not happen until Thursday, April 22 – Target PS5 restock days have been shifting between Wednesday and Thursday.

The biggest inventory usually happens at Walmart. Yes, last Thursday at the usual 3pm EDT time, there was a Walmart Sony PS5 console restock – both Disc and Digital – but only in two waves. We’re also tracking GameStop, Antonline and Sony Direct, the latter of which sent out exclusive email invites so that people could buy PS5 more easily. Look in your inbox to see if that happens again this week.

Sony Direct PS5 restock date and time

The Sony Direct PS5 restock happened twice last week and – so far – once this week. Last week Sony also issues an email invite for select customers, and then later those same days for everyone else in a much harder to get lottery system. It’s just a public queue this time around – no Sony Direct email invites so far. 

We will alert you if there’s another restock for the general public, April 22, and if the Sony Direct email invites are sent to people again. It’s not confirmed, but Sony Direct PS5 restock dates could become a Tuesday and Thursday thing. So far that theory we foresaw last week is panning out as of today.

Here’s what our Sony Direct PS5 restock alert looked (April 20 example shown):

Target PS5 restock date and time

The rumored Target PS5 restock date is Wednesday, April 21 or Thursday, April 21 – and since we haven’t heard anything yet and it’s already Tuesday, we’re thinking it may be Thursday – if it’s this week at all. What we do know: there is inventory of the Sony console coming through the Target warehouses, according to sources via Jake Randall. But don’t expect to see a Target PS5 drop until our Twitter tracker mentions it. In other words, there’s no reason to wake up for the brutal 7:40am EDT / 4:40am PDT PS5 drop time at Target unless we tweet about it in advance.

Walmart PS5 restock date and time

The next Walmart PS5 restock date may be April 22 at 3pm EDT, according to the big retailer’s unflappable Thursday restock patterns. It all comes down to how much inventory the store has on hand, and recently it’s been pretty light. So while Walmart does a PS5 console restock every other Thursday then takes a month off, last week’s stock only happened in two waves over 20 minutes – not the usual 12 waves over the course of two hours. So we might see another Walmart PS5 restock date on April 22. 

Matt Swider usually gets a Walmart press release at 12pm EDT, three hours ahead of a PS5 restock. So look for that official announcement on April 22 – if that’s the date.

Best Buy PS5 restock date timeRumored PS5 Best Buy restock date: Friday, April 23Rumored PS5 Best Buy restock time: maybe 12pm EDTLast Best Buy restock date: three weeks ago – Friday, March 26When it’s in stock: Best Buy PS5 Disc | Best Buy PS5 DigitalWait time: Online orders, in-store pick up 3-5 days later Get alerts: Follow our Twitter tracker

The Best Buy PS5 restock date is April 23, according to the latest rumors and based on the retailer’s past patterns of having new console stock on a Friday. The date isn’t confirmed just yet (look for a Best Buy PS5 restock update soon), and anyone who has been keeping track of PS5 will know that Best Buy hasn’t released its inventory in nearly four weeks. In fact, it’s been longer than that for PS5 Digital. The last time there was a PS5 restock at Best Buy, it was limited to PS5 Disc.

What time will Best Buy restock PS5? 12pm EDT to 3:15pm EDT has been the US store’s launch window in the past. And it has never done a PS5 restock over the weekend in 2021, so we might not see a Best Buy restock until Friday, April 23.

Here’s our PS5 restock tracker alert from Friday March 26:

GameStop PS5 bundle restock date

The next GameStop PS5 restock date is likely to be late this week or early the week after. We usually have a one week to one-and-a-half week wait for a GameStop PS5 drop consisting of bundles. There is an Xbox Series X restock at GameStop on Wednesday, April 21, but no word on PS5 just yet. The last PS5 restock date was April 14, with a 45-minute wave of new Sony PS5 Disc and Digital console bundle stock (a lot of people got it, so this is where to buy PS5 if you want to get it easily). 

GameStop made this restock easier than it was before; two weeks ago, most people who tried were met with error messages when clicking the add to cart button.

Antonline PS5 restock date

The next Antonline PS5 restock may be this week. Antonline promises weekly drops of the next-gen console and it already launched a small PS5 bundle last week. These are always in the form of loaded PS5 bundles, so the price is higher, but it’s easy to snag the console that way. We’re also overdue for a PS5 Digital Edition from this store, so we expect that version during one of these restock cycles.

Important: Antonline sells out of PS5 in three minutes, but when PS5 is on sale at this retailer, there are no waves or in stock/out of stock funny business with the add to cart button. And this American retailer ships fast. Basically it’s the opposite of a Walmart PS5 restock.

Here’s what our Antonline restock alerts look like:

Amazon PS5 restock

When will Amazon restock PS5? That’s the $499 question right now, and it’s one we don’t have an answer to just yet. Unsubstantiated rumors claim we’ll see the console in the next few days (TechRadar hasn’t been able to confirm that hearsay), while other theories suggest the Amazon PS5 restock will coincide with Amazon Prime Day (but that’s expected to be more than two months away).

We’re told that the Amazon Xbox Series X restock may drop sooner than a PS5 restock, even though Amazon had a small round of Microsoft consoles for sale in late March. Amazon is the most tight lipped of the US stores, so we’re in wait and see mode.

You didn’t miss it. Amazon PS5 restock was scheduled for today 14:00 UTC (10am ET). Could drop any time – it’s up to Amazon. Best Buy last Fri was 3hrs late on me. Everyone doubted then too.The good news? Amazon has a 46,000 PS5 inventory–just waiting. I’ll ping u. Info is free 18, 2021

Sam’s Club PS5 restockPossible restock date: Happens randomly on weekdays (any time)Last restock date: Tuesday, March 23 at 1am EDTWait time: Online orders, average one week shippingFollow our Twitter tracker to get alerts

Sam’s Club is overdue for a PS5 restock – the last time was a surprise at 1am EDT on March 23. That off-putting time made it stay in stock way longer than normal: a whole four minutes. That’s a lifetime in the console restock world. 

Sam’s Club, unlike Best Buy and Walmart, doesn’t do frequent restocks or stick to a time schedule. So it’s important to follow our PS5 restock tracker for this store. While you don’t have to be a member of Sam’s Club to buy PS5, you will get charged a fee or need to use a temporary membership to purchase the Sony console.

Here’s what our Sam’s Club PS5 restock alert looked like last time (March 23):

Costco PS5 restock date

The Costco PS5 restock was overdue and we got one that quickly went out of stock on April 20, even though the retailer only offers the new console to its members. That really tells you how strong demand is for PS5. It often has reasonably priced PS5 bundles, so it’s no wonder it sells out in four minutes, according to our PS5 restock tracker. The good news is that Costco is overdue for a Sony console restock.

Here’s what our Costco PS5 restock alert looked like last time (April 20):

TechRadar will continue to report on PS5 restock information as the news breaks. We’ll keep this page updated with the most relevant data regarding Sony’s console and when it’s back in stock. Time is always a factor, so knowing when PS5 will be in stock at Best Buy and other retailers give you a better chance to buy it in April, rather than having to wait until the summer of 2021 – or even later this year.
