We rarely see Best Buy restock PS5 and Xbox Series X on a Monday, but according to our PS5 restock Twitter tracker Matt Swider, both consoles were in stock late in the morning today, May 24. Matt sends alerts as soon as US retailers are in stock – if you follow his Twitter account and turn on notifications, and TechRadar exclusively reported that neither the Sony nor the Microsoft console would be in stock Thursday and Friday of last week. It seems as if both were waiting for the new week. And now we know Monday is unpredictable for Best Buy restocks.
Here’s how to find the PS5 restock date and times.
- Get PS5 immediately? Follow Matt Swider, our PS5 restock Twitter tracker for notifications when the next PS5 restock is live. It’s the fastest way to get updates.
- Do not buy from other Twitter users – which are all scams. Only buy from the websites Matt points you to. No one is looking to eagerly sell a console for just $550.

Best Buy PS5 restock today: what time it happened
The Best Buy PS5 restock just happened today, and the time was 11:49am EDT for the PS5 restock and a few minutes before that for the Xbox Series X. Best Buy hasn’t had back-to-back console restocks in several weeks, so this is a nice change of pace for people who wanted to buy the Sony and Microsoft consoles.
The important thing about Best Buy compared to other retailers in the US is that you shoudln’t refresh the page after you attemtpt to add a PS5 or Xbox Series X to your cart. Instead, Best Buy requires you to click the yellow add-to-cart button once, wait for the greyed out button to cycle through (it’s almost like a self-contained Sony Direct virtual queue inside that button) and click it again when it turns back to yellow. After that you check out with PS5 or Xbox Series X as quickly as possible.
Often Best Buy will say that there’s no inventory wthin 250 miles of your location. This means one of two things. First, it could mean that Best Buy is releasing consoles in waves, as so many American stores do. You just have to keep trying to check out until it goes through. Second, it could mean it’s a region limited drop or you’re too late to buy the console from Best Buy within your area and it’s truly out of stock.
When is PS5 in stock next in the US?
When will PS5 and Xbox Series X restock next in the US? There should be a Target restock this week given the fact that the US retailer has inventory and didn’t make either console available to purchase last week.
