Increase Your Odds: Best Buy’s PlayStation Portal Reservation Process Explained

After a recent disappointing restock, Best Buy added information on an updated checkout reservation process for the PlayStation Portal to help its customers increase their odds of getting a unit.

Here is every part of this process explained in detail on the PlayStation Portal’s product page:

  1. Sign in or create an account
    • An account will be required for this item. This means you can’t check out as a guest.
  2. Confirm your location
    • Ensure your preferred pickup and shipping locations are up-to-date and accurate. Best Buy states this helps them inform you of available stock more promptly.
    • You can check your addresses from the Account Setting section of your account.

  1. Add item to your cart
    • If the site already has a “Sold Out” message, make sure you reload every few seconds. Sometimes, retailers add stock in batches every 10 to 15 minutes during a restock.
  2. Follow the on-screen prompts
    • After clicking “Add to cart,” you’ll be in line for a PlayStation Portal unit. At this point, Best Buy will verify your account and check for available inventory.
  3. Complete your purchase
    • If the verification process goes smoothly, Best Buy will hold the PlayStation Portal unit in your cart for 10 minutes so you can check out. Once time runs out, the item can and will most likely not be available anymore.
