PS5s are still a hot commodity and people are still trying to get their hands on one. Restocks have come and gone with a lot of satisfied customers being able to get a console but left a lot more Play Station-less. PS5 restock alerts have become an indispensable tool for anyone looking to secure a console for themselves.
PS5 Restock Alerts
A lot of PS5 restocks in-store and online have been a surprise, leaving it up to luck or a really fast wi-fi connection for people to grab one. Some people would alert other people in the community of the restocks when they happen upon them and some accounts on Twitter are purely dedicated to informing the community of any restocks.

PS5 Restock in Target, BestBuy, and GameStop
BestBuy, Target, and GameStop are all due to have their PS5 restocks in the next week or two, TechRadar says. According to PS5StockNotify, the digital version of the PS5 is currently in stock at Target, but only in certain locations.

Restock expert Matt Swider says more PS5 restock news should be coming this week. He explains that short holiday weeks, like the one just last week, tend to act as replenishment dates for major stores in the US. The same thing happened during Memorial Day a few weeks ago.
Although last week's surprise Target restock drop was the only movement from major retailers who distribute the gaming console, TechRadar says BestBuy, GameStop, and Walmart are likely to show some movement in the next several days.

PS5 Digital ($399) https://t.co/0gwPSeb5K7
Digital now live – very limited supply today folks.
Antonline may also do a restock, as they tend to drop the consoles earlier in the week before anyone else. These drops are always in bundle form. Although they promise next-gen console stock dates once a week, these are sometimes limited to Xbox Series X restocks.
BestBuy would most likely drop a restock sometime this week in the daytime. It is also best to check local inventories.
Target will likely restock next week or the week after, and they seem to do the restocks at 7 am EDT, so adjust your clocks accordingly.
GameStop will should be holding their restocks this week, probably on Wednesday, July 14. GameStop often favors Wednesdays. Usually they have a restock every 10 to 15 days and as of July 12, it has been 11 days since the last restock.
Walmart will most probably hold its restock on Thursday, July 15 at 3 pm EDT. Matt Swider often gets advance notice of Walmart PS5 restocks and so keeping an eye out for his tweets would be helpful to stay on top of this restock.
You can get alerts from the Twitter PS5 restock alert accounts by following them and turning notifications on for their tweets to alert you when these restocks happen.
