How to Get an Xbox Series X via GameStop on Black Friday, November 26
Lucky gamers have been able to get an Xbox Series X by changing their ‘Home Store’ on the GameStop app.
Jeddy_boy discovered this strategy on Twitter, and he was kind enough to share it with others in the community.
Mind you, this trick does not always work, but it is worth checking out.
To try this method for yourself, follow these steps:
- Use the GameStop app
- Search GameStop Xbox Series X Thanksgiving stores list. Use Ctrl+F / Command F to begin searching your Zip Code to find your nearest store. Gradually check from the beginning of your ZIP, the more numbers which match the closer it’ll be.
- Change your “Home Store” in the app to one of those stores until you see it in stock. To change your store, go the profile section of the app and then tap on “My Store.” This may take multiple attempts until it appears in stock, and may only appear for some.
Note that this will only work if that particular store had leftover stock from the Thanksgiving event.
If you can not go through the checkout process for any reason, some gamers have provided a solution to this. Using Apple Pay can bypass some checkout issues if you encounter any.

I purchased on the GameStop app. Saw the comments and someone said its left over from yesterday’s release so I searched what stores had the Thanksgiving drop. From there I changed my “Home Store” in the app then checked the product page to see if it was in stock.— Jed Aromin (@Jeddy_boy) November 26, 2021
