Xbox Series X restock dates have become scarce like the Microsoft console itself with many retailers in the US favoring other systems: Xbox Series S and PS5 restock. Our Xbox restock tracker, Matt Swider, has noted that Best Buy, Target and GameStop had zero consoles to ship in recent weeks, according to his warehouse sources.
How can you buy an Xbox Series X with our alerts? Good news, we’re hearing about more new Xbox inventory for next week than the stingy Walmart Xbox drop on April 8. Retailers like Antonline, Target and Best Buy – probably in that order – should have the Xbox Series X console. When? How do you get alerts? Well…
To get advance notice, follow Matt Swider, our Xbox restock tracker:
Our Xbox Series X restock alerts look like this (for example):
Antonline Xbox Series X restock date
The next Xbox Series X restock date may be at Antonline, as the US retailer is known for next-gen restocks weekly, according to its own admission on Twitter. We expect both a PS5 restock and and Xbox restock next week, both in bundle form.
Antonline ships consoles fast and it doesn’t play games with its add to cart button like other Xbox Series X restock locations. This means you have about three minutes from the time Matt Swider sends his tweet to actually buy it.
Our last Antonline Xbox Series X restock alert from Wednesday, April 7:

Target Xbox Series X restock date
The next Target Xbox Series X restock date may be Wednesday, April 14, meaning it’ll have been almost five weeks since that last Xbox drop at the retailer. We’ve seen a few stores built up small amounts of Xbox console inventory over that time. Matt Swider will have early information on the Xbox restock situation next week.
Here’s our Target Xbox Series X restock alert from Thursday, March 11:

Best Buy Xbox Series X restock
The rumored Best Buy Xbox Series X restock date is Friday, April 16, according to the store’s pattern of releasing the console on Fridays – when it has inventory. It didn’t have an Xbox drop for the last two Fridays, but TechRadar knew about this ahead of time, so when we have indications that it will happen again, we’ll send out an alert through our Xbox Series X restock Twitter tracker.
What time will the Best Buy Xbox restock happen? April 16 at 12pm EDT / 11am CDT / 10am MDT / 9am PDT is when to look for the console. We’ve seen Best Buy restock as late as 3:15pm EDT, but it’s usually earlier with the three-hour time frame.
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, and we don’t expect another restock this week. 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 15, 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:

GameStop Xbox Series X restock date
The GameStop Xbox restock did happen, but it wasn’t the Microsoft console we had wanted. Only Xbox Series S bundles were in stock on Tuesday, April 6. GameStop has a restock cadence of every week to week-and-a-half, and the last drop Xbox drops haven’t contained the Xbox Series X, so we’re unsure how this fits into the retailer’s pattern. All we know is that we’re due some Series X consoles soon.
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:

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.
