Where to Buy a PS5 on Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2021

If you’re looking for a PS5, there’s no better time to be on the hunt than Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2021!

It’s been over a year since the launch of the PS5 and getting your hands on the next-gen console is still no easy task. Chip shortages and issues caused by the pandemic are still rife, and Sony is struggling to get enough units to meet demand.

Thankfully, there’s one last chance to get your hands on the PS5 before Christmas, during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We’ve been seeing certain retailers saving up PS5 stock for Black Friday for some time now, so there are definitely a few drops on the way.

And if you’re looking for the very best PS5 Black Friday deals in 2021, we know just where you should be looking.

All PS5 Restocks on Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2021

Walmart Black Friday & Cyber Monday PS5 Restock

Walmart PS5 Stock

We already know that Walmart is giving Walmart+ members early access to its Black Friday sales this year. Gamers should sign up for the membership early to be in with a chance at a PS5 console.

Bear in mind that early access to PS5 Black Friday sales won’t be available to free trial members either.

Walmart’s Black Friday PS5 sales go live on November 22 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET.

UPDATE: It seems that Walmart is hinting at a new PS5 restock on Black Friday itself.

GameStop Black Friday & Cyber Monday PS5 Restock

GameStop PS5 Restock

Next up, we expect that GameStop also has some plans around the holiday season. After all, we’ve seen GameStop allegedly hoarding PS5 stock ahead of Black Friday sales, though it’s yet to unveil its plan.

According to LordOfRestocks on Twitter, GameStop may well have an in-store PS5 restock on November 25 at 5-8 PM ET. However, this is yet to be confirmed.

UPDATE: GameStop’s in-store restock was a huge success, with these stores all open for PS5 and Xbox sales on Thanksgiving!

One thing is almost certain though – you’ll need to be a PowerUp Rewards Pro member to take advantage of the upcoming deals. GameStop’s membership service is necessary for almost all next-gen console drops lately, and we’re betting Black Friday is no exception.

Meijer Black Friday / Thanksgiving PS5 Restock

PS5 Restock at Meijer

It’s official, Meijer will have PS5 stock this Thanksgiving! The store is going live with a PS5 drop on Thanksgiving day, November 25 at 3 AM PT / 6 AM ET.

However, bear in mind that this deal only allows gamers to purchase online for in-store pick up, so be sure that you have a local Meijer with stock before buying.

UPDATE: Meijer appears to be canceling orders after its Thanksgiving next-gen restock!

What’s more, these deals are exclusive to mPerks members, so you’ll need an existing Meijer membership in order to take part.

PlayStation Direct Black Friday & Cyber Monday PS5 Restock

PlayStation Direct

Lately, it’s been particularly quiet where PS5 restocks are concerned at Sony’s PlayStation Direct. Some restock trackers believe this is in an effort to get the store ready for Black Friday & Cyber Monday.

Drops at Sony’s site are becoming relatively infrequent, although PlayStation is offering fans a chance to sign up for a PS5 drop this holiday season.

We don’t have a date for this potential Black Friday PS5 offer just yet, but we expect more news to come soon.

Target Black Friday & Cyber Monday PS5 Restock

Target PS5 Restock

Recently, we reported that Target was stockpiling PS5 consoles ahead of Black Friday. However, just recently the store had a small PS5 restock, potentially quelling those rumors.

Target expert Jake Randall previously stated that Target could have a small restock and still be planning a larger drop around Black Friday itself. If this is true, the major retailer may not be done just yet!

Right now, rumor has it that Target could go live with additional PS5 stock on Cyber Monday!

Although Amazon is one of the more unpredictable retailers, rumor has it that the store will be going live with PS5 stock during the Black Friday weekend.

UPDATE: Amazon has gone live with a huge PS5 restock!

After all, selling consoles is a great way to drive interest to more video games sales during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But Amazon may not want to cripple its site on the holiday itself.
