Exclusive: There is no Best Buy PS5 restock today, April 23, according to PS5 restock Twitter tracker Matt Swider citing exclusive TechRadar sources who report a lack of Sony console inventory. It’s been one month since Best Buy had a PS5 restock, and now it will be an additional week without offering PS5 for sale. The good news is that Matt will send you an alert regarding what time PS5 will be back in stock – if you follow his Twitter account and turn on notifications. We’re still tracking Sony Direct this afternoon, we saw a very brief Antonline restock this morning, and there are high expectations for both a Walmart and Target restock next week. Matt will send you a PS5 restock Twitter alert once he has confirmed information on each.
- What time? Follow @mattswider, our PS5 restock Twitter tracker for notifications about when the PS5 restock is live. It’s the fastest way to get real-time updates.
- Do not buy directly off Twitter users – which are all scams – only to the websites Matt points you to.
Click on this example of a PS5 restock alert you can get when following Matt Swider. It was when the $399 PS5 Disc and $499 PS5 Digital Edition were in stock at Walmart. We’ll have a similar Best By PS5 restock alert today, if that retailer opens up orders.
When will PS5 restock at Best Buy?
That’s the biggest question, as the Best Buy restock for today, April 23, now looks unlikely. Our PS5 restock tracker knows the pattern, and the time is usually 12pm EDT or soon after, but it can be at late as 3:15pm EDT. It’s really within that window if there’s going to be a restock. But our sources say there’s not enough PS5 stock.
Best Buy wasn’t the only retailer overdue for a console restock today. Antonline has promised one next-gen restock per week, and it did deliver the PS5 Digital console in two very small waves – that inventory lasted seconds. Your last hope for this week is the Sony Direct PS5 restock, but there are no guarantees it’ll happen today.
Update: The Newegg Shuffle restock doesn’t contain a PS5. Here are the PS5 restock dates we’re tracking for next week.
Best Buy PS5 restock date time
- Rumored PS5 Best Buy restock date: next week, Friday, April 30
- Rumored PS5 Best Buy restock time: maybe 12pm EDT (or soon after)
- Last Best Buy restock date: Friday, March 26 (four weeks ago)
- When it’s in stock: Best Buy PS5 Disc | Best Buy PS5 Digital
- Wait time: Online orders, in-store pick up 3-5 days later
- Get alerts: Follow our Twitter tracker
The Best Buy PS5 restock date is likely April 30, according to the sources of Twitter tracker Matt Swider. We’ve heard back from various warehouses and can confirm it will indeed be another week without the Sony console, even though Best Buy has been one month without a restock already. It’s actually been even longer since the PS5 Digital Edition has been in stock.
What time does Best Buy restock PS5 when it’s available? 12pm EDT to 3:15pm EDT has been the US store’s launch window in the past. And it has never done a PS5 restock over the weekend in 2021, so since it’s not today, we don’t expect any Best Buy restock news until next week.
Here’s our PS5 restock tracker alert from Friday, March 26:

Antonline PS5 restock date
The next Antonline PS5 restock was today, April 23, but it sold out instantly with the PS5 Digital bundle only up for a few seconds in two waves. This US store promises weekly next-gen console drops and it’s always in the form of loaded PS5 bundles. This means the price is higher, but it’s easy to snag the console that way.
Important: Antonline sells out of PS5 in three minutes or less, but when PS5 is on sale at this retailer, there are no waves or in-stock/out-of-stock funny business with the add-to-cart button. And this American retailer ships fast. Basically, it’s the opposite of a Walmart PS5 restock.
Here’s what our Antonline restock alerts look like:

Sony Direct PS5 restock date and time
The Sony Direct PS5 restock date could be today, April 23, but we’re sticking this in the third slot (behind Best Buy and Antonline) because Sony’s official store for the PlayStation brand has been rather unpredictable. It had two restock events last week on a Tuesday and Thursday, and just one this week this past Tuesday. The theory was that we’d see another Sony Direct restock yesterday, April 22, but that didn’t happen. Will we see that now-overdue second PS5 drop today from Sony Direct? We’re hours from knowing for sure.
Here’s what our Sony Direct PS5 restock alert looked (April 20 example shown):

Walmart PS5 restock date and time
The lack of Walmart PS5 restock news this week is actually positive, as the US retailer needs to build up inventory for next Thursday, April 29. That’s when we expect to see the Sony console back in stock – hopefully in a two-hour restock marathon split into 12 different waves like the last big restock update on March 18.
Matt Swider usually knows the Walmart restock time of 3pm EDT three hours early. So look out for his PS5 restock Twitter tracker alert at noon on Thursday.

Target PS5 restock date and time
The Target PS5 restock date is expected to be next week, on either Wednesday or Thursday, as shipments of the PlayStation 5 make their way to Target US retail stores around the United States. Target didn’t have enough PS5 consoles in stock to pull off orders this week, but both TechRadar and restock leaker Jake Randall are confident of it happening next week.
Don’t expect a Target PS5 drop until our Twitter tracker mentions it. It may not be until next week. In other words, there’s no reason to wake up for the brutal Target PS5 drop time unless we tweet about it in advance.
Here’s what our Target PS5 restock alert looked like last time (March 31 example shown):

GameStop PS5 bundle restock date
The next GameStop PS5 restock date is likely to be either today or, more likely, early the week after. We usually have a one-week to one-and-a-half-week wait for a GameStop PS5 drop consisting of bundles. The last PS5 restock date was April 14, with a 45-minute wave of new Sony PS5 Disc and Digital Edition bundle stock (a lot of people got it, so this is where to buy PS5 if you want to get it easily).
GameStop ships consoles quickly, in about five to six days, and while it forces you to buy a PS5 bundle, this move deters resellers from snapping up all of the inventory. This is your best chance to buy PS5 among major retailers.

Amazon PS5 restock
When will Amazon restock PS5? That’s the $499 question right now, and it’s one we don’t have an answer to just yet. Unsubstantiated rumors claim we’ll see the console in the next few days (TechRadar hasn’t been able to confirm that hearsay), while other theories suggest the Amazon PS5 restock will coincide with Amazon Prime Day (but that’s expected to be more than two months away).
Amazon is the most tight-lipped of the US stores, so we’re in wait-and-see mode.
You didn’t miss it. Amazon PS5 restock was scheduled for today 14:00 UTC (10am ET). Could drop any time – it’s up to Amazon. Best Buy last Fri was 3hrs late on me. Everyone doubted then too.The good news? Amazon has a 46,000 PS5 inventory–just waiting. I’ll ping u. Info is free pic.twitter.com/c7UGidMjSKMarch 18, 2021
Costco PS5 restock date
- Next restock date: Happens randomly on weekdays
- Last restock date: April 20, and March 9 before that (so long gaps)
- Wait time: Online orders, average one week for shipping
- Follow our Twitter tracker to get alerts
The Costco PS5 restock was overdue and we got one that quickly went out of stock on April 20, even though the retailer only offers the new console to its members. That really tells you how strong demand is for PS5. It often has reasonably priced PS5 bundles, so it’s no wonder it sells out in four minutes, according to our PS5 restock tracker. There was a glimmer of a PS5 restock on Thursday, April 22, but it didn’t last long enough to purchase – the theory was that a few PS5 consoles from the prior restock two days before that were up for grabs.
Here’s what our Costco PS5 restock alert looked like last time (April 20):

Sam’s Club PS5 restock
- Possible restock date: Happens randomly on weekdays (any time)
- Last restock date: Tuesday, March 23 at 1am EDT
- Wait time: Online orders, average one week shipping

Sam’s Club is overdue for a PS5 restock – the last time was a surprise at 1am EDT on March 23. That off-putting time made it stay in stock way longer than normal: a whole four minutes. That’s a lifetime in the console restock world.
Sam’s Club, unlike Best Buy and Walmart, doesn’t do frequent restocks or stick to a time schedule. So it’s important to follow our PS5 restock tracker for this store. While you don’t have to be a member of Sam’s Club to buy PS5, you will get charged a fee or need to use a temporary membership to purchase the Sony console.
Here’s what our Sam’s Club PS5 restock alert looked like last time (March 23):

TechRadar will continue to report on PS5 restock information as the news breaks. We’ll update this page with the most relevant data regarding Sony’s console and when it’s back in stock. Time is always a factor, so knowing when PS5 will be in stock at Best Buy and other retailers give you a better chance to buy it in April, rather than having to wait until the summer of 2021 – or even later this year.
