Wondering where to buy Xbox Series X? Walmart Xbox Series X restock has been happening more often. Currently, Walmart has the Xbox Series S in stock for $299. It's available via shipping only (no pickup). 

Typically, Walmart releases inventory in 3 rounds with a 10-minute respite in between each release. So if during the next Xbox Series X restock event you miss out on the first batch of consoles — stick around because Walmart might release more shortly thereafter. In addition, we were able to secure an Xbox Series S about 10 minutes after the event ended.

When is the next Walmart Xbox Series X restock event?

Unfortunately, Walmart isn't consistent when it comes to announcing Xbox Series X restock. For instance, the last time they announced it via the Walmart Twitter account was back on November 18. Likewise Walmart's weekly circular has in the past advertised Xbox Series X restock, but they don't do so regularly. As a result, your best bet is to follow our where to buy Xbox Series X guide for the latest updates on Xbox Series X restock. 

That said, once Xbox Series X consoles are available at Walmart you'll have to act lightning fast to secure a console and purchase it. So it's worth creating a account if you don't already have one. Have your address, credit card info, and other details ready to go so if you happen to get an Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S console in your cart, you can rapidly check out and confirm your purchase. 

Walmart Xbox Series X restock and shipping deadlines

Walmart recently announced its Christmas 2020 shipping deadlines and there's no longer any hope for getting an Xbox before Christmas. However, you might be able to get a unit (via in-store pickup) before the end of the year.
