The United States and Amazon will have Xbox Series X restocks again before the end of the year. We don't have any publicly announced restocks happening today, but that doesn't mean there isn't one coming. Here are some quick tips to catch a surprise Xbox restock:

  • Walmart, GameStop and Best Buy have membership subscriptions that frequently offer early access to restocks, but they're not always required. Even if you don't pay for early access, you should still create an account with these retailers for faster checkout.

Why is the Xbox hard to find?

Essentially, Microsoft couldn't get the materials it needed to make enough Xbox consoles to satisfy demand. As with the PlayStation 5 and most PC video cards, there's a chip shortage now that slows supply. The pandemic caused a huge impact on chip production, and industry watchers don't expect this problem to be resolved until end of the year.

How do I improve the odds of having an Xbox X?

It can be a little messy, constantly refreshing the screen and looking for a checkout link. And as many can, it is quite painful to punch in your payment information, only because all the consoles are gone. Here are some of our tips: how can you make a purchase?

  • Open multiple browsers: Got a laptop? A phone? Maybe a tablet? Use them all to try to make the purchase. Set yourself up ahead of time with multiple browsers open to the retail site of your choice and be ready to buy from all of them.
  • Don't give up: Many of these retailers have started releasing the consoles over the course of 30 minutes, to keep bots from buying them all and reselling them at a price increase. If you see everything is sold out after the first 5 minutes, keep refreshing because your chance probably isn't gone yet.
  • Have an account set-up and signed-in:The time it takes to enter your payment and shipping information can be the difference between getting your console and getting left in the dust. Avoid that delay by setting up an account on the websites you'll be shopping on.
  • Make sure you have a confirmationemail: There have been many reports of a purchase getting "stuck" and even though the website said the sale was complete, no confirmation email arrived and then no Xbox arrived. Keep an eye out and make sure you actually have an Xbox Series X headed your way before celebrating.

  • Only buy at the retail price: If someone is offering you an Xbox Series X for more or less than $500 or an Xbox Series S for more or less than $300, you should probably stay away. There are many of these sites offering "deals" or "bundles" that are frequently not actually worth it.
