Update: Walmart is now sold out of PS5 restock. Be sure to check out our PS5 restock
hub for retailers to then check inventory and all the buying advice you need to get yourself a console.
PS5 restock returns to Walmart. This will be the retailer’s first shipment of Sony’s on-demand next-gen console in over two months, and as with its previous shipments, this Walmart PS5 restock will be exclusively for Walmart Plus members.
Matt Swider (opens in a new tab) of The shortcut (opens in a new tab) reports that Walmart will offer the option to purchase a PS5 at 3 p.m. ET today (Tuesday, August 23). The reliable restock tracker notes that the retailer will carry the Sony Horizon Forbidden West PS5 bundle for its standard retail price of $550 (that’s the PS5 console and a copy of the game). Swider’s source also suggests that the standalone PS5 Disc console could also be offered at the same time.
It’s important to note that you won’t be able to participate in the restock or sale event if you have a free trial of Walmart Plus, so you will need to have a paid subscription to participate. (You can sign up for Walmart Plus via this Walmart link (opens in a new tab).) Membership costs $98 per year, although there is also a $12.95/month option. Be sure to check out our Walmart Promo Codes page for more discounts and coupons.

Walmart Restock Event – Tips and Tricks
The first thing to do is to create a Walmart.com Account (opens in a new tab) if you don’t already have one. Enter your address and credit card information so that if you score a console, you can quickly pay. You’ll also want to know the correct PS5 landing pages at Walmart. (You can find the links above.)
Once consoles become available at Walmart, you’ll need to act fast to secure a console and purchase it. However, it should be noted that Walmart tends to release inventory every 10-15 minutes. So if you don’t score a console on your first try, keep trying. Typically, Walmart restocks lasted 1-3 hours. So it pays to stick around and keep trying.
Many have reported that adding the PS5 to a shopping list has helped them get a PS5. To do this, log into your Walmart account and go to PS5 product sheet (opens in a new tab) at Wal-Mart. Click the “Add to List” icon below the console image. You will then be prompted to create a name for your wishlist.
The next time Walmart restocks the PS5, you should be able to add the console to your cart through your wishlist (instead of going to the product page and waiting for it to appear in stock. Again, your Mileage may vary with this tactic but it has worked in the past.
If you refuse to sign up for Walmart Plus, don’t give up hope. We’re bound to see more restocks over the next few weeks, but keep in mind that most drops these days are behind a membership paywall.
