Having problems buying the PlayStation 5? Experts suggested five pro tips that could help you secure a PS5 restocks for Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.
Sony released PS5 more than a year ago, but it's still one of the hardest products to buy in the market. The gaming console always sells out in a matter of minutes, and scalpers load bots that buy out retailer stocks regularly. It almost seems impossible to buy PS5.
However, experts from GamesRadar argued that proper planning and strategies can help boost your chances of purchase. It is also worth noting that new PS5 stocks might be incoming for the holiday sales.
This might finally be your chance! Follow these tips and suggestions to make the most out of the holiday PS5 restock
5. Follow PS5 Restock Trackers
Keep yourself updated with the PS5 restocks using online trackers. Some of the best trackers found on Twitter are:
Note that there are many advantages to following these accounts. They can update you with the latest availability status and give you alerts about sales start time. Even better, some of these internet sources can leak incoming sales days before it happens, giving you plenty of time to prepare for it.
To follow these accounts, log in on Twitter, open the account profile, and click on the bell icon next to their name.
4. Sign in and Save Shipping Address
Now that you have a rough idea for an incoming sale, you should immediately prepare your account information for the purchase. Hours before the event, you must login to your account on the retailer's website. Also, remember to save your complete shipping address and payment method before the sale.
Be warned that PS5 stocks will sell out in a matter of minutes, so you must save yourself the time of typing these types of information.
3. Retailer Loyalty or Subscription Program
Aside from logging in, you should also consider subscribing to the retailer loyalty program and subscription plans. Although these plans are expensive, they provide a significant boost to your purchase chances.
An example is the Walmart Plus subscription, which gives members three hours early access to the sale of products. This is one of the major reasons why stocks sell out immediately, aside from online scalpers.
2. Try Buying Bundles
Another expensive but effective solution is buying PS5 bundles. For reference, if PS5 sells in a matter of minutes, then bundles often sell out in a matter of hours. This means you have a better chance of finding PS5 stocks in bundles than stand alone.
Fortunately, there are many bundles you can choose from. Some bundles offer an extra controller, an extra game, or premium membership services. You should choose which bundle best serves your interest.
1. Keep refreshing
Lastly, keep refreshing the retailer page during the sale. Although stocks might sell out quickly, some retailers release their PS5 consoles with time intervals. There might be a few stocks coming in even after the listing says "not available." It is recommended that you refresh the page occasionally for about an hour or two after the sale event.
