PS5 Restock Update for Sam's Club, Walmart, Best Buy, Antonline, PS Direct and More

After a prolonged drought, there were actually quite a few PS5 restocks this week. Walmart, Best Buy, Antonline and Sam's Club all updated their inventories on Thursday, yet they are now sold out once more. Here is a breakdown of the latest information.

Walmart PS5 Restock

In an unprecedented move, Walmart released two batches of PS5s on Thursday at separate times. The first drop occurred at 12 p.m. ET, while the second one took place at 9 p.m.

As console tracker Matt Swider has pointed out, this is highly unusual for the merchant, given that it normally sticks to a firm 3 p.m. ET timeslot. Hopefully, it does not indicate that Walmart is abandoning its reliable pattern, as that will make it very difficult to predict their upcoming restock dates.

On the plus side, because these sales were broken into distinct batches, more customers had a chance to actually place an order.

Both drops featured the PS5 disc edition and digital edition going for their recommend manufacture's prices of $499 and $399 respectively. In addition to this, the Xbox Series X was also up for grabs.

Generally speaking, Walmart restocks on Thursdays at 3 p.m. ET but, as you can clearly see, that is not always the case. As such, we would recommend that you follow dedicated console trackers like @mattswider and @GYXdeals on Twitter to keep abreast of the latest developments.

Best Buy PS5 Restock

As we forecast in our previous update, Best Buy did restock this week. The outlet released new PS5 units on Thursday at 2:30 p.m. ET. Both versions of the console were temporarily available on the website, at their recommended manufacture prices.

While the supplies are now totally depleted, Best Buy has been especially prolific with its drops over the last few weeks, so it could potentially have another restock up its sleeve in the near future.

If this turns out to be the case, @mattswider and @GYXdeals will be the first to break the news.

Antonline PS5 Restock

Antonline also restocked on Thursday, offering the PS5 in a huge bundle with 4 games, an extra controller and a DualSense charging station.

This package is now sold out, but there are a few options for getting an Xbox Series S from the website instead. If you are not picky about which next-gen console you own, then read our latest Xbox update to find out more about those other deals.

Sam's Club

Continuing with the streak of restocks, Sam's Club also replenished its PS5 inventory this week.

The console was featured on the outlet's website at 12:30 a.m. ET on Thursday. It came bundled with an extra DualSense controller, a 1-month subscription to PlayStation Now, and a copy of Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

The whole package totalled $639.98 and has now sold out.

Target PS5 Restock

A handful of Target stores organized individual restocks on Tuesday, August 10, but there has not been a nationwide drop in quite some time.

While there is currently no indication of when this might next occur, the merchant typically updates its inventory between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. ET. As such, we can at least narrow it down to an early morning, even if the precise date is unpredictable.

GameStop PS5 Restock

You cannot buy a PlayStation 5 from GameStop at the time of writing.

In anticipation of their next sale, you might want to consider joining their "PowerUp Rewards Pro" membership. The reason for this is that GameStop's last few drops have been reserved exclusively for their premium customers, prohibiting regular shoppers from even making a purchase.

You can sign up for the PowerUp Pro scheme on the retailer's website, for an annual cost of $14.99.

PS Direct PS5 Restock

We often find out about Sony's official restocks a few days in advance, because they will send emails to pre-selected customers.

To clarify, a few days before the PS Direct virtual queue opens, the retailer will always invite random shoppers to join early. These notifications will contain the date and time of the imminent restock and word tends to spread rather quickly.

There have been no reports of these emails being delivered lately, suggesting that the next drop is still a way off.

Newegg PS5 Restock

At the time of writing, the PS5 is not featured in any Newegg shuffles. For timely updates on when the next lottery draw will open, follow the likes of @mattswider and @GYXdeals on Twitter.

Amazon PS5 Restock

All PS5 products are listed as sold out on Amazon. The last time that the online marketplace had consoles in stock was during its Prime Day flash sale, almost two months ago.

Costco PS5 Restock

The PlayStation 5 is still unavailable at Costco and has been for a while. When the outlet finally restocks, @mattswider and @GYXdeals will broadcast updates to their followers.
