Update: Today's GameStop PS5 restock is now over. The console was available in a pair of bundles to PowerUp Reward Pro members, but both packages are now sold out. Check our PS5 restock hub for the latest restock information and the retailers to check for inventory next. 

GameStop is currently holding a PS5 restock, this is the retailer's first drop of the machine this month. The hugely in-demand console is available in a pair of bundles that include games such as Far Cry 6 and an extra controller. As expected, you need to be a GameStop PowerUp Reward Pro member in order to participate in this PS5 restock. 

News of this latest PS5 restock originally came from stock tracking account Wario64, and the stock became available shortly after 11 a.m. ET. The bundles aren't expected to stick around for long, so secure yours using the links below as soon as possible.

PS5 restock tracker — stores to check

It has also been confirmed that this latest GameStop PS5 restock will once again be exclusively for Pro Reward Card members. It was announced over the summer that GameStop would be giving Pro members early access to restocks. The retailer's last eight PS5 restocks have all offered premium reward cardholders priority access and we don't expect that system to change until next year now. 

The Pro member-only window could be followed up by a general sale where anyone can attempt to purchase a PS5. Though don't count on this; previous drops have all sold out during the Pro member early access period. We recommend paying the $15 for an annual Pro membership — after all, that’s a small price if it allows you to finally get your hands on a PS5.

GameStop always puts its allocation of the PS5 into bundles. These packages include items like an extra controller, physical games, and often some form of digital credit or a PlayStation Plus membership. That will once again be the case here. While the retailer did originally list the console for purchase standalone, that listing has since been removed.   

GameStop will also be holding an in-store PS5 restock this week on Friday, October 22 if you miss out. If you're unwilling to sign up for PowerUp Reward Pro membership to score a PS5, then make sure to bookmark our PS5 restock hub. This comprehensive guide contains stock information and updates for every major retailer. 

How to become a PowerUp Rewards Pro Member

In early June, GameStop announced that it's changing the way it handles console restocks. It will give first dibs to its PowerUp Rewards Pro members. Although there's a free tier, only Pro members will get early access to the restocks. Membership starts at $14.99 per year and includes perks like a Game Informer subscription, $5 reward coupons per month (total of $60/year), 10% extra trade credit on games/accessories, and a $5 welcome certificate. If you sign up today, you'll have access to the restock. 

PowerUp Rewards Pro membership: from $15 @ GameStop

PowerUp Rewards Pro membership: from $15 @ GameStop
GameStop's PowerUp Rewards Pro membership already came with a host of benefits, but the retailer has added one more — early access to next-gen console restocks. If you're still after a PS5 or Xbox Series X, this could be $15 very well spent. 

GameStop restock — tips and tricks

It may be obvious, but you'll want to have a GameStop account and be logged into your account when the restock begins. If you click the "add to cart" button and nothing happens, try refreshing the page. 

Alternatively, you could clear your browser cookies and try to open the page via an incognito web browser. You might be asked to solve a captcha before adding the console to your cart. We don't yet know if this restock will be opened up to the general public after the early access window. 

What to do if you miss out

As with the previous GameStop PS5 restock events, these units will sell out fast. So if you missed out don't worry. There will be other restock events in the future. Also, make sure to follow our restock coverage for up-to-the-minute news on the latest restocks. In the meantime, you can browse other retailer pages to see if they may have quietly added any new inventory.
