If you’re looking for a PS5, Xbox Series X, or Nintendo Switch OLED, here’s how to buy the rare devices from GameStop!
When it comes to the biggest restockers in the business, GameStop has much of the competition beat. Every passing week, the retailer regularly drops new PS5, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch OLED stock.
In fact, we’d put GameStop down as quite possibly the easiest way to get a PS5 or Xbox Series X. However, you’ll need to know exactly how the retailer operates to stand the best chance at nabbing any limited console.
It also looks like Nintendo Switch fans are in luck – GameStop may have the Switch OLED in-store near you!
And that’s not the only console that the retailer is doing in-store drops for! GameStop is beginning in-store next-gen restocks in certain areas, and it’s clearly testing the waters for a full return to brick and mortar stores.
Switch OLED, Xbox Series X & PS5 GameStop Restock Tips
Here are all the tips that will help you secure a Nintendo Switch OLED, Xbox Series X, PS5, or any other limited device from GameStop!
Create a GameStop Account Early
Don’t wait for the next GameStop PS5, Xbox, or Switch OLED restock! Make your GameStop account early to ensure you’re ready for the upcoming drops.
Entering your payment and shipping details in advance will give you the edge when consoles go live. However, if you’re checking out as a guest last-minute, using Paypal should boost your odds.
Sign Up for GameStop’s PowerUp Rewards Pro Membership
You probably already know this by now, but GameStop’s PowerUp Rewards Pro membership is the best way to get a PS5 or Xbox Series X these days. By paying a small membership fee, you’ll get access to exclusive drops early, and it’s a lot cheaper than Best Buy’s extortionate membership cost!
Here’s how to get your GameStop PowerUp Rewards Pro membership at a discount for a limited time!
GameStop Browser vs App
When it comes to nabbing an exclusive drop, the easiest way to get an Xbox Series X, PS5, or Switch OLED is via your mobile browser. The GameStop app isn’t worth your time, and mobile browsers are often better than PC too.
We recommend having a few different systems active at once, if possible. Chances are, one of your methods will get through.
It’s also worth noting that you should not refresh the site too frequently. Doing so will make GameStop’s site think that you’re a bot, and you may end up being IP blocked.
Use Apple Pay & Paypal at Checkout
We’ve known that Apple Pay and Paypal are the easiest ways to check out at GameStop for a while now.
For whatever reason, these methods seem to be the retailer’s biggest weakness, so be sure to set up your account early!
As a last resort, if things aren’t going your way, Incognito mode is your friend. Use a private window to navigate the site if you’re having issues with your main browser.
Then, proceed to checkout as a Guest using Paypal, and you still stand a good chance at nabbing the console early.
