Best Buy Xbox Series X Restock: How to Get Back in Stock Alerts

Best Buy Xbox Series X Restock: How to Get Back in Stock Alerts

Here’s how to track Xbox Series X restocks at all major retailers

When it comes to Xbox Series X restocks, Best Buy is generally your best bet. Microsoft runs as a close second. But, these days, stock for the Xbox Series X console is inconsistent. Sometimes there’s a Best Buy Xbox Series X restock, and inventory seems to be improving across retailers while, other times, it’s depleted for several months at a time.

Best Buy also doesn’t provide In stock alerts for any of its products online – regardless of the demand. Instead, shoppers are left incessantly rechecking the retailers’ website, and following Reddit forums for rumors of coveted console returns.

With supply chain disruptions still restricting Xbox Series X restocks, and retailers sneakily dropping stock, getting your hands on the console hasn’t been easy. The name of the game is to know as soon as stock becomes available, so you can act fast.

That’s why you should sign up with Visualping, an Xbox Series X stock tracker that’ll notify you when the console is back in stock at Best Buy. The easy online tool lets you monitor any Best Buy web page – or any retailers’ web pages – and get alerted when the product you want is back in stock.

Here’s everything you need to know about scoring the Xbox Series X at Best Buy, including how to sign up for alerts of Best Buy Xbox Series X restocks.

Best Buy Xbox Series X Restock: What Can I Expect Right Now?

Xbox Series X Restock

When Best Buy has an Xbox Series X restock, in addition to the standalone 1TB console, it usually offers bundles that include games, peripherals, or Xbox Game Pass subscriptions with your purchase.

In November 2022, Best Buy offered a package that includes a second controller, a three-month Game Pass subscription, and a copy of Halo Infinite for $640.96, knocking $24 off the combined price of this bundle.

Microsoft is also now selling refurbished units. These Xbox Series X consoles have been thoroughly vetted by Microsoft, and sell at a discount, for $469, with the purchase of a game and extra controller.

You can also bundle an additional controller with your order for a $10 discount.

Xbox Series X Deals

Price cuts on the Xbox Series X – even at Best Buy – are next to nonexistent; demand for Microsoft’s console is so high — and supply so low — that retailers simply have no incentive to offer Xbox Series X deals.

Instead of dollar-off discounts on the console itself, gamers can, however, get deals in the form of bundles and freebies.

Best Buy also tends to offer Xbox Series X deals on games and accessories. Amazon frequently discounts Xbox controllers and accessories.

How Does it Work?

When it detects a page change – such as the original price crossed out, with the new Cyber Monday price next to it – you get an email alert. The alert includes a screenshot of the web page, with all the changes highlighted for you to see.

There’s also a link, at the bottom of the alert, so you can navigate to your monitored page and make your purchase – promptly, before the discount or restock catches on and everyone else rushes to snag the product for themselves.

Is it Free?
