Update 8:50AM ET, December 2nd: Target appears to have sold out of consoles for now.
Shopping for a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X these days is starting to feel like hunting for toilet paper during the early days of the pandemic.Thankfully, however, if you still haven’t been able to land one, right now Target is giving you another shot, with online ordering for in-store pickup at stores near you.
Listings for the $499.99 PS5 with a disc drive went up first, followed by the $399.99 PS5 digital edition .Sales for the $499.99 Xbox Series X are live now too, but online the only option is the $34.99 All Access subscription package, as the page notes that direct purchases are in-store only.For all of these, availability will depend on your local supply.
And if you already have a next-gen console (or don’t need one to play last-gen games) the page for Microsoft’s novelty $99.99 Xbox Series mini-fridge shows it’s due for a restock as well.
We recommend making sure you sign in to your Target account early while you wait, preload any payment information, and make sure your billing and shipping information is current.It’ll reduce the time it takes to check out, thus increasing your chances of landing the console.
Because these orders are for in-store pickup, keep trying to add your items to the cart even if they appear to be sold out at first — stores near you may load their available stock a few minutes later, or reload it in waves.
If you don’t manage to nab one today, don’t worry – we will continue posting updates as more restocks happen.We are also happy to save you money on everyday purchases – which include the hottest video games, gaming peripherals, and more – so feel free to subscribe to our newsletter .Our team has also included some great gaming accessories below you can enjoy in the meantime as well, some of which are even on sale.
