Update Feb. 9: GameStop restock is happening online right now. The retailer has PS5 restock and Xbox Series S restock. Both are available as bundles. 

If you missed Thursday's PS5 restock at Walmart, we have good news. Meijer has confirmed it will have PS5 restock in the near future. So if you're still looking where to buy PS5 — this might be your break. 

The official Meijer Twitter account states that "PS5 consoles are coming soon in stores only." The retailer warns that consoles will be limited and the only way to find out if your local Meijer has PS5 restock is to look for a store sign announcing PS5 availability.

PS5: $499 @ Meijer
The flagship PS5 console includes a 4K UDH Blu-ray disc drive. As a result, the design is slightly fuller than the all-digital model. It sells for $499 and includes a PS5 DualSense controller.

PS5 Digital Edition: $399 @ Meijer
The PS5 Digital console lacks a 4K UDH Blu-ray disc drive. As a result, it's slightly thinner than its counterpart. It also sells for $399 ($100 less) and includes a PS5 DualSense controller.

Meijer says its PS5 restock event will be very limited. While they don't say how many PS5 consoles they'll have, it doesn't sound like they're expecting a massive restock. As a result, you'll have to act lightning fast to secure a console and purchase it. According to Meijer, stores with PS5 restock will have the above sign indicating when the consoles will go on sale. It'll also display how many consoles said store will have available. 

Create a Meijer account: Increase your chances

While this Meijer PS5 restock will be in-store only, it doesn't hurt to have a Meijer.com account ready in case of future restock events. (Or in case Meijer releases some consoles online). Have your address, credit card info, and other details ready to go, or you could withhold your credit card info, but at least have a verified account ready to go.
