PopFindr is a web site.

PopFindr (opens in a new tab) is a website that checks local store inventories based on your zip code.

If you add Slickdeals to your account, you''ll get an email alert for your Xbox Series X. However, we have found that sometimes Slickdeals does not send users fast enough. It may be better to type in Xbox Series X in the search bar and sort by new. Be willing to check in multiple times a day.

If a user notices a restocking, please contact the community. For example, one user found Xbox Series X units in their local Walmart (opens in new tab) with others discussing similar items. It appears that some Walmart locations may be holding on to units to sell on Cyber Monday.

Retailers in the United Kingdom

Another set of retailers to keep an eye on are subscription-based wholesalers like Costco, Sams Club, and BJs Wholesale Club. Because it requires a paid account to get access to these wholesalers, there are often fewer individuals jumping over each other to find a unit. If you have not already signed up to any of these retailers, please contact a few friends or relatives.

Many manufacturers prefer to include additional games or accessories on their consoles. Therefore, you will likely have to pay more than the standard $500.

Check out certain hours.

While stock may be made available at certain times, retailers prefer to make stock available. This time, new Xbox Series X stock will usually be available at midnight ET on certain days. Check all of the retailers, and you may be lucky.

When customers wake up, other retailers prefer times like 7 a.m. ET, while others will aim at noon to give everyone the best chance of finding a new Xbox Series X console.

  • Costco: Xbox Series X | Xbox Series S (in and out of stock)
  • Sams Club: Xbox Series X (opens in new tab) (out of stock)
  • BJs Wholesale Club: Xbox Series X (opens in new tab) | Xbox Series S (opens in new tab) (in and out of stock)

If the units are out of stock online, it might be worthwhile to go to a physical location. You must bring your membership card or go with someone who has a membership. Always wear a face mask (over your nose) or retail associates will ask you to leave. If none of the units are available in store, then at least you may leave with a $5 rotisserie chicken.

Xbox Series X deals

There are no Xbox Series X deals to be reported on at the moment. Demand for Microsoft''s console is so high and supply so low that retailers have no incentive to offer Xbox Series X deals. Finally, when Xbox Series X deals arrive, we anticipate the sales to come in the form of bundles and freebies rather than dollar-off discounts.

Xbox Series X deals can be reached on games and accessories. Amazon usually sells Xbox controllers and accessories, while Best Buy sells many games.

Xbox Series X restock avoid the scalpers

One of the reasons for the Xbox Series X and Series S stock shortages is the fact that scalpers are putting up vast amounts of next-gen consoles in one big sweep and then selling them for outrageous prices; they were taking thousands of dollars for a $499 gaming console.

According to VGC, a now infamous PS5 scalper group forming CrepChiefNotify managed to obtain 1,000 Xbox Series X consoles as soon as they became available at Very, a twist of fate, but Very cancelled 1,000 Xbox Series X pre-orders, somewhat torpedoing the efforts of the scalpers.

We suggest you avoid buying a console from these scalpers. We believe paying massively over the odds for a console that does not have a vast array of new Xbox Series X games isn''t a foolproof move. If you can hold out, Microsoft should offer additional Xbox Series X players as well as the promise of more exclusive games for the console.
