How To Get A PS5 From Amazon
The strategy to get a PS5 from Amazon is actually pretty simple.
The thing with Amazon is that it's such a global presence that its site has been streamlined a lot. The purchasing process of the site makes the purchase of anything simple by design.
This plays directly into the way that you should buy a PS5 from Amazon. Because technically, there's not much strategy to it.
Amazon uses a "buy it now" button that streamlines the purchasing process, utilizing the payment and delivery details you've used on the site before. If you have made purchases from Amazon before, these details should already be there.
If not, take a look at your Amazon settings and make sure your details are exactly right. Payment details, address, everything. Once the site has these, it will automatically use these details to make it as easy as possible for you to buy from them.
Once you've got this covered, you're practically ready. Everything else is external, like keeping an eye on stock trackers. They're a priceless benefit, and make sure you keep up to date with them so that when the PS5s go live on Amazon, you're there at the very moment they do.
