Who else is searching for Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals on the PS5?!

Looking for Black Friday & Cyber Monday Deals on the PS5? 

We hear you, and we know that the PlayStation 5 gaming console is a very popular item this year. While we can’t confirm that there will be any actual deals, we’ve rounded up all the places you may be able to score a PS5 during Black Friday or Cyber Monday 2021.

The highly sought-after Sony PlayStation 5 system includes a gaming controller and features lightning-fast loading with a built-in SSD, incredible graphics, 4K TV compatibility, and it even has 8K output so you can play games on a 4320p resolution display. Even better, you can use your PS VR with this system!

If you want the best chance to get your hands on a PS5 this holiday season, you may have to shop online. Last year, PlayStation made these consoles available for purchase online only. This year, Walmart is only offering this console online and Target is doing something similar, by allowing contactless drive-up and order pick-up only.

To date, we’ve seen a few restocks from Amazon, Target, Best Buy, Game Stop, PlayStation Direct, and Walmart — and we’re hoping to see more soon! When the PS5 is restocked, you’ll see it priced between $399-$499. They do sell out quickly though, so if you miss it keep checking back as we do expect to see the PS5 going in and out of stock between now and Christmas.

HIP TIP: Be sure to log into your Walmart.com, Target.com, or BestBuy.com account ahead of time, as these will sell out quickly once they do come back in stock!


GameStop Storefront

Certain stores offered PS5 restocks before Black Friday.

If you’re a member of Game Stop’s PowerUp Rewards Pro or Best Buy’s new Total Tech subscription service, they’ve been offering early access to PS5 restocks online when you’re logged into your account.

Sony is also trying to make sure that PS5 consoles are being sold as fairly as possible. In an attempt to discourage bots and resellers, Sony has announced a virtual queue that you can register for right now. Simply create a PlayStation Network account and sign up for an invitation.

If you’re selected, you’ll receive an email with the date, time, and instructions for purchasing a PS5 console. Head on over here for more information on how the PlayStation virtual queue works.

One Hip reader had luck shopping with PlayStation!

“I definitely recommend to sign up under PlayStation to get one through them. We were picked yesterday and within 15 minutes of waiting purchased one and it’s already being delivered tomorrow.”

Here are the stores where you may be able to find PS5 restocks on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and beyond:

 Walmart 

Keep in mind that Walmart+ members have been getting early access to the best Black Friday deals. That means the PS5 is usually out of stock by the time the sale opens up to the general public.

To get early access to Walmart’s Black Friday deals, you’ll need a paid Walmart+ membership ($12.95/month or $98/year) and not the free 15-day trial. In addition to early Black Friday access, Walmart+ members enjoy other benefits like free shipping on Walmart.com orders with NO minimum purchase, unlimited FREE grocery delivery, Scan & Go for faster in-store shopping, and discounts on fuel at nearly 2,000 gas stations.

If you’re in hot pursuit of this hard-to-find item and think you would enjoy all the other benefits of a Walmart+ membership, it may make sense for you to join in time for early access to this deal! Learn more here.

Game Stop

GameStop’s PowerUp Rewards program offers members a head start on new consoles including the PS5, graphics cards, collectibles, and more. In addition to getting at least one hour to shop restocks before the general public, members also receive a $10 welcome reward, a $5 monthly reward, and 2% back in rewards for a value of up to $150/year!

But for just $14.99/ year, a chance to jump the line and potentially snag a PS5 before Christmas alone may make it worth the cost of membership.

Instagram follower Wilson Krist says:

I’ve been looking for a PS5 since it came out and I was told this information a month ago and within 2 weeks had the system. Well worth the $14.99 fee for the membership!

    Is it even possible to get one of these this year? We expected this last year since it was new, but really hoping to snag one this year!! Please help!

      If you have total tech-support from Best Buy, watch the app as that is how I snagged one last week. Total tech members get first dibs. It was super easy. Only took a year to get my hands on one!

        I am stretching the budget at $400 for the console…I can’t do an additional $200 for the service. Thanks for the tip! Still crossing my fingers for the chance.

    I was able to get 2 XBoxes last year thanks to this app called Hotstock. Seriously, if you want any chance of beating the bots, this is a must have! It sends you an alert when Xbox X’s, PS5’s and a bunch of other things that you choose to be alerted on go into stock at a ton of online stores. It’s been a little known secret I found out about and want to share with the community that shares so many deals with me! Happy hunting and happy holidays everyone!!!
