GameStop Xbox Series X restock update: The Xbox Series X will be back in stock today, April 21 at 10am EDT. That restock time is just under one hour from right now and is also 9am CDT / 8am MDT / 7am PDT. The Microsoft console restock will finally be available with “sizable inventory”, according to Xbox restock tracker Matt Swider, citing official GameStop news, however, it’s through the Xbox All Access plan. This means you’ll pay over for the console time (like how you pay for a smartphone). Other stores in the US that could have an Xbox restock this week include Target, Walmart, Best Buy and Antonline.
Matt will send you an alert with advance notice – if you follow his account.
Our Xbox Series X restock alerts look like this (for example):
Besides the confirmed GameStop Xbox restock on April 21, there are four other US stores that could have the console this week. Antonline usually has the Microsoft console first (among the four) – if it’s going to do an Xbox drop (sometimes its promised ‘next-gen console every week’ is part of a PS5 restock, though). The Xbox Series X Target restock date may be Wednesday, April 21; the Walmart Xbox drop may be Thursday, April 22; and the Best Buy restock could wait until Friday, April 23 (an entire month since Best Buy last had console inventory).
You can get alerts on when and where the Xbox Series X is back in stock, with real-time updates through Matt Swider’s Xbox restock Twitter tracker. Other stores that should have availability that he tracks include Antonline (which had an Xbox Series X restock two weeks ago, so this week), Newegg, Costco, Sam’s Club and the official Microsoft Xbox store.
GameStop Xbox Series X restock date: today
The GameStop Xbox Series X restock is today, April 21, according to Mat Swider citing the US game retailer and their official communications. You won’t be able to buy the Xbox Series X console outright, however, as it’ll be offered through Xbox All-Access, the Microsoft financing plan to spread payment out over time for the console and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. That’s a great option for some people, but lots of people prefer to pay off the console right price, or not have Xbox Game Pass Ultimate – and some people don’t have good credit to make the purchase. In those cases, we’re still tracking Xbox Series X restock at other stores this week.

Walmart Xbox Series X restock date
The next Walmart Xbox Series X restock could be next week, April 22. The past two Walmart Xbox restock events have seen limited consoles on hand (both April 15 and April 8). Matt Swider always has information about the Walmart restock time about three hours ahead of orders opening up. If the April 22 Walmart Xbox orders begin at the usual 2:30pm EDT / 11:30am PDT, expect to see an announcement from our Xbox Twitter tracker by noon EDT, unless Walmart changes up the date.
Here’s what our Walmart Xbox stock alert looked like on March 22:

Target Xbox Series X restock date
The next Target Xbox Series X restock date is said to be this week, according to Jake Randall, so we’re looking closely at either Wednesday, April 21 or Thursday, April 22. It’s been over five weeks since that last Xbox drop at the retailer. We’ve seen a few stores build 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 date
There hasn’t been a Best Buy Xbox Serie X restock in a month, and it’s overdue at the largest electronics retailer in the US. In fact, we haven’t seen any console restock from Best Buy recently, despite some rumors every Friday.
What time will the Best Buy Xbox restock happen if it does this week? We usually start looking at 12pm EDT / 11am CDT / 10am MDT / 9am PDT. We’ve seen Best Buy restock as late as 3:15pm EDT, but it’s usually earlier with the three-hour time frame.
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. There’s a chance of a PS5 restock and Xbox restock this week – both consoles 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.

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 used to have the Series X console back in stock on random days through the week, however, it sold out one minute, according to our restock Twitter tracker account. We haven’t seen a restock in recent weeks, though. Is Microsoft allowing other retailers to sell its console, or is it building up inventory? We’re going to keep watching and send alerts when Xbox Series X is in stock.
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.

Costco Xbox Series X restock date
The Costco Xbox restock date, like Newegg, is always unpredictable, but we often see the console back in stock on weekdays during normal hours (unlike rival Sam’s Club, which can be all over the place with times as late as 1am EDT). There’s a barrier to entry here, which can be a really good thing for you: the Xbox stock is open to Costco members only. That slows down the pace at which people can buy the Xbox Series X, but also means… you have to be a paid Costco member. The last Costco Xbox restock was Tuesday, April 13, so expect to see more Microsoft inventory soon.
