How to buy an Xbox Series X at Walmart 

The Xbox Series X has been especially difficult to get a hold of this month. Outside of a few restocks, this is the first time we see Xbox Series X stock from a major retailer. 

You’ll need to be lightning-fast if you want to get a console in your basket, complete checkout, and receive that much-coveted order confirmation email. So it’s worth creating a account ahead of time if you don’t already have one. 

Just getting stock in your basket is half the battle. If you’re stuck entering your card information and address details the console could well sell out while you’re typing away. Have all your details pre-saved so you’re ready to go the moment the stock is live. 

It’s also worth noting that Walmart tends to release inventory in 10-minute intervals, so if the console sells out at a few minutes, it's worth sticking around as Walmart may release more stock shortly.
