Update: You missed the Target PS5 restock yesterday morning, as well as GameStop bundles hours later. Good news, our Xbox Series X restock Twitter tracker Matt Swider is now monitoring Walmart to see if the Microsoft console will be in stock today. Follow Matt's Twitter account for Xbox alerts.

The overdue Xbox Series X restock at Target should happen today, April 28, according to Xbox Series X restock Twitter tracker Matt Swider and YouTuber Jake Randall. Matt will send you an alert from his Twitter account when the Microsoft console is back in stock – if you follow him and turn on notifications. We're also overdue for a Walmart restock on Thursday, April 29, plus we may see Antonline restock the Xbox Series X soon. Matt has helped more than 16,000 people buy a next-gen with his Twitter alerts. But you'll have to be fast.

Matt Swider will send you an alert with advance notice – if you follow his account.

There are three stores in the US that could have an Xbox Series X restock next, and they are Target, Walmart and Best Buy – likely in that order, according to Matt Swider. Retailer Antonline is overdue to have the Xbox Series X in stock – if it's going to do an Xbox drop (it promises a 'next-gen console every week').

You can get alerts on when and where the Xbox Series X is back in stock, with real-time updates through Matt Swider's Xbox restock Twitter tracker. Other stores that should have availability that he tracks include Antonline (which had an Xbox Series X restock two weeks ago, so this week), Newegg, Costco, Sam's Club and the official Microsoft Xbox store.

Last Xbox Series X restock with dates and times 

Target Xbox Series X restock date

The next Target Xbox Series X restock date is reportedly happening today, April 28, according to leaker Jake Randall, who cites internal communications from Target employees. This makes sense because sources talking to Matt Swider have detailed how the retail chain has been building up console inventory in the last week.

Expect the Target Xbox Series X restock time to fall between 6am and 9am EDT. We've often seen it at 7:40am EDT / 6:40am CDT / 5:40am MDT / 4:40am PDT, but we suggest looking out for our PS5 restock Twitter tracker notification 40 minutes earlier than that time.

Here's our Target Xbox Series X restock alert from Thursday, March 11:

Walmart Xbox Series X restock date

The next Walmart Xbox Series X restock is expected to be Thursday, April 29, and that fits the US retailer's pattern of having waves of new Xbox every other week for one month, then taking the week off. The last Walmart Xbox restock date, on April 15, saw limited consoles on hand. 

Matt Swider always has information about the Walmart restock time nearly three hours ahead of orders opening up. When Walmart Xbox orders do get announced, they usually begin at 2:30pm EDT / 11:30am PDT, and the Walmart press release goes out on our Xbox Twitter tracker by noon EDT.

Best Buy Xbox Series X restock date and time

The Best Buy Xbox Series X restock date is now a big question mark in our eyes, as the electronics retailer offered a limited supply of the Microsoft console on Monday. The Best Buy usually goes live with orders on a Friday (though it hasn't had an Xbox restock in over a month). We're unsure if it'll happen as per usual this Friday.

When the Xbox Series X is in stock, what is the usual Best Buy Xbox restock time? We  start looking at 12pm EDT / 11am CDT / 10am MDT / 9am PDT. We've seen Best Buy restock as late as 3:15pm EDT, but it's typically earlier with the three-hour time frame.

Antonline Xbox Series X restock date

The next Xbox Series X restock date may be at Antonline this week. Why? Because the US retailer is known for next-gen restocks every week, and it hasn't had the Xbox Series X in stock recently (the last one was April 7). There's a chance this could be a PS5 restock in a given week instead of Xbox, but we're not counting out a Microsoft console bundle just yet. It's overdue.

Antonline ships consoles fast and it doesn't play games with its add-to-cart button like other Xbox Series X restock locations do. This means you have about three minutes from the time Matt Swider sends his tweet to actually buy it.

Amazon Xbox Series X restock date

We saw a surprise Xbox Series X restock at Amazon on Tuesday, March 23 at around 7:12pm EDT, and our restock tracker sent out an alert as soon as it happened. Even with that, the restock lasted just a few minutes for the Series X. Those who were able to order the Amazon Xbox Series X restock were persistent – it wasn't just about the speed of getting to the website. Another tactic used was adding the 'sold out' Xbox to your wish list, then add it to the cart. That's in case Amazon gave you an error message when trying to check out with the Xbox Series X.

GameStop Xbox Series X restock date

The next GameStop Xbox Series X restock is likely to be this week, as we usually see the game retailer wait a week to a week-and-a-half to restock the Microsoft console. It did have the Xbox Series X for sale through the Xbox All Access finance plan, but most people are looking for the standalone Xbox Series X or a tempting bundle.

Our Xbox Series X restock Twitter tracker alert for GameStop will look like this:

Microsoft Xbox Series X restock date

The official Microsoft Xbox store does restock the console, but it hasn't had a great track record for keeping it in stock in the last few weeks. We did see a surprise Xbox drop at midnight on Sunday night into Monday morning and another April 22 restock before that date, and both were caught by our Xbox restock Twitter tracker. However, Microsoft is known for doing flash sales of a few consoles at a time.

The secret: some people either cancel their orders midway through the process or their credit card gets rejected, so do keep refreshing when we send out the Xbox restock alert. You may get lucky in scooping up a console that gets kicked back into the inventory system after five or fifteen minutes.

Costco Xbox Series X restock date

The Costco Xbox restock date, like Newegg, is always unpredictable, but we often see the console back in stock on weekdays during normal hours (unlike rival Sam's Club, which can be all over the place with times as late as 1am EDT). There's a barrier to entry here, which can be a really good thing for you: the Xbox stock is open to Costco members only. That slows down the pace at which people can buy the Xbox Series X, but also means... you have to be a paid Costco member. The last Costco Xbox restock was Tuesday, April 13, so expect to see more Microsoft inventory soon.
