Cyber Week is here, and for many looking for the chance to buy Xbox Series X over the Black Friday weekend, it represents a hotbed of Xbox Series X restock rumors and potential new drops. We're keeping our ears to the ground for any hint of a new wave of Xbox Series X stock, showing you exactly where to buy Xbox Series X before that Christmas deadline hits.

Update: AO in the UK now has stock of the Xbox Series S available with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for £299.

Retailers are eager to show off their Cyber Week offerings, and we may see another round of Xbox Series X restocks to finish off the shopping extravaganza. Keep your eyes on Best Buy and GameStop in particular, though Amazon has been suspiciously quiet over the last few weeks. 

Walmart previously offered the opportunity to buy Xbox Series X alongside the launch of its Black Friday deals a couple of days before the big day, and we saw stock flying off the shelves just as fast as launch day. Since then we haven't heard anything from the retailer, with a simple 'out of stock' sign in place where previous restock times once stood. 

The UK has seen fewer Xbox Series X restocks over the last few days, though Currys and Argos did offer a glimmer of inventory early last week. 

We're showing you exactly where to buy Xbox Series X if those Cyber Monday restocks do come to fruition, so keep this page bookmarked for all the latest updates. In the meantime, keep checking those retailer links below - stock could land at any time and you could jump straight to the front of the line.

Xbox Series X: check for latest stock updates at Best Buy

Xbox Series X: check for latest stock updates at Amazon
When Xbox Series X stock lands at Amazon word is sure to travel quickly, so you'll want to make sure you're at the front of the line to beat the crowds here. Stock is extremely limited so even Amazon's lofty warehouses are selling out in record time right now.

Where to buy Xbox Series X: where should you check first?

Amazon
Amazon hasn't had many Xbox Series X restocks over the last few weeks, but we'd keep checking for stock because word is likely to travel fast once more units do hit these lofty shelves and you'll have to be at the front of the line to grab one.

Microsoft
Microsoft held on pretty well in the first wave of stock, lasting longer than other retailers with quick refreshes. We saw more stock landing at the start of the Black Friday week here, but since then there hasn't been much movement. Keep checking in though, because you can also grab discounted controllers here as well.
View Deal

Best Buy
Best Buy offered the chance to buy Xbox Series X on November 22, and again on November 28, but stock is still pretty hard to come by. We may well see more units hitting the shelves soon, however, so keep your eyes peeled as Best Buy is throwing in a discounted controller with these orders as well.

B&H Photo
B&H Photo won't be the first place many look when trying to buy Xbox Series X. While that does mean you've got a better chance at beating the crowds here, B&H Photo is likely to have less stock on the shelves compared to some of the bigger tech giants.

Newegg
Newegg's initial Xbox Series X pre-orders were limited, but we're holding out hope that we'll see more stock when other retailers open their doors. There has been previous stock here before, so it's worth casting your eye over.
View Deal

Walmart
Walmart has been restocking Xbox Series X far more frequently than other retailers - but that stock is being snapped up incredibly quickly. The next restock is scheduled for 'Black Friday', so it's anyone's guess when you'll be able to buy Xbox Series X and we'd keep that refresh button hot.
View Deal

StockX
If you're really struggling to buy Xbox Series X, there is another option. StockX is a marketplace retailer that allows sellers to post an asking price, buyers to post a buying price and an immediate transaction when both requests match. Prices are, obviously, a little higher here, but unlike eBay StockX ships all products to its warehouse for inspection before sending them on to you. We'd recommend waiting this first wave of stock out a little longer, but if you're desperate there's plenty of stock making it a reliable option today.

Very had another quick flash of stock, with the chance to buy Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S briefly glimpsing into view. That's now all gone, however, but keep an eye here as things are obviously moving in the right direction.

Where to buy Xbox Series X: which UK retailers should you check first?

Amazon
Amazon hasn't seen too many Xbox Series X restocks over the last few weeks, but we'd still keep a close eye over the next few days. Any stock that does appear here is going to move quickly, so you'll need to be fast to catch it.
View Deal

Microsoft
Microsoft was offering the chance to buy Xbox Series X at the start of the Black Friday week, but we haven't seen much of a return since then. It's worth noting, however, that the Xbox Series S managed to stay in stock a lot longer here so it's worth keeping an eye on if you're after the cheaper console.
View Deal

Very
Very has offered another chance to buy Xbox Series X in the last few weeks, with higher value bundles also available. That means stock of the individual console tends to sell out here as fast as you would expect, but if you're happy to pay for extra controllers or Game Pass subscriptions you might have an easier time picking up the console here.
View Deal

Currys
Currys was one of the most recent retailers offering the chance to buy Xbox Series X, with a quick flash of stock earlier in the week. Site issues meant that many missed out here, however, though early birds were able to snag a console from the front of the queue.

View Deal

Argos
Argos was poised to launch new Xbox Series X stock earlier this week, but with things running out so fast it's difficult to tell whether it was there at all. Keep your eyes out, though, because more units are on their way.

You'll also find new Xbox controllers in stock right now.

When will you be able to buy Xbox Series X?

Of course, these stock issues can only last so long - you'll be able to buy Xbox Series X for a non-inflated scalper price relatively easily at some point in the future. 

Just when that is, however, is a little tricky to plan. We're likely to see more Xbox Series X stock hitting around Black Friday as retailers use the console launches to bring more shoppers to their sites over the biggest shopping weekend of the year. 

If you're still looking for where to buy Xbox Series X in a couple of weeks, then, we'd recommend circling November 27 on the calendar. After that, things might still be rough until the holidays are through and we expect things will settle down towards the beginning of 2021. 

How to buy Xbox Series X: our top tips

1. Find your retailers
The lists above offer up all the latest updates on which retailers are likely to bring more chances to buy Xbox Series X over the next few days. Prioritise larger retailers as they're the most likely to offer up more Xbox Series X stock and are also already set up for fast shipping as well. 

2. Prepare your wallet
We're sure you've already prepared to spend some cash, but having your details at the ready will save you valuable time when that first wave of stock hits. Better yet, if you're comfortable saving your payment details or using PayPal you're in for a much less stressful experience.

3. Sign in
Many retailers will need an email address alongside your shipping information to allow you to checkout, and this is causing many shoppers looking to buy Xbox Series X to lose valuable seconds. Be sure to sign into these retailers if you already have an account or create one if not. Of course, if you're not comfortable signing in or creating an account, keep your email address and shipping information handy for a quick copy and paste when you're against the clock.

4. Find the product page
We'll be linking you straight to the product page of either the Xbox Series X or the Xbox Series S when stock does arrive. However, if you're going it alone you'll want to make sure you're on the correct product page ahead of time to avoid spending those crucial seconds searching for the console itself on a retailer website. Plus, if demand skyrockets, sites run the risk of crashing which can be particularly frustrating if you're still trying to navigate the virtual aisles. 

5. Don't give up
If all is going to plan but stock runs out at the final hurdle don't give up. We've seen retailers like Best Buy replenishing their stock every few minutes when they go live with a new batch, which means quick refreshes can get you back in the game in seconds.

Can you buy Xbox Series X in store?

In the US, in-store stock varies by region, but we are seeing some success with Target. Be sure to check in-store stock levels early in the morning and head down straight away if you spot consoles available. Stores are allocating what little stock they have on a first come first served basis, but it is possible to buy Xbox Series X in person. 

If you're in the UK, things are a little different. Obviously the current lockdown has scuppered many plans to buy Xbox Series X in store, however Game is honouring pre-order collection.
