It’s another week for those waiting on an Xbox Series X/S restock – here are the retailers to watch from July 12-18.
After 8 months of searching for a next-gen console, you’d think that the hunt for an Xbox Series X/S would get a little easier. Unfortunately, it’s still not as easy as we’d like!
Recently, Xbox Boss Phil Spencer spoke out about Xbox stock shortage and limited edition Series X/S consoles! We also heard more about when Xbox One support will be ending – inspiring many gamers to upgrade to new hardware.
But thankfully, we hear that the Xbox Series X/S shortage is almost over, according to Microsoft.

Without further ado, here are the retailers to watch for Xbox Series X/S restocks from July 12-18.
All Xbox Series X/S Restocks July 12-18
Best Buy Xbox Series X/S Restock
Best Buy Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: July 13-15 (Rumored)
In 5 out of the last 7 weeks, Best Buy has been able to drop Xbox Series X/S stock for next-gen console hunters. Unfortunately, last week was a miss from the major retailer but that only gives us more faith in Best Buy this week.
Although Best Buy tends to drop on Thursdays, the most recent restock took place on a Tuesday so keep your eyes peeled. It’s clear that Xbox supply is becoming more common when retailers can be so consistent with their restocking!
Target Xbox Series X/S Restock
Target Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
There’s great news for those looking to find their Xbox Series X/S at Target. After all, the retailer recently revealed that it’s making MAJOR changes to its Xbox Series X/S restocks.
In case you missed the news, Xbox consoles are no longer getting restock waves at Target stores. Instead, consoles will simply drop when they arrive in stock.
This is an excellent sign that shows we’re truly coming to the end of the Xbox shortage – but consoles are still suffering from heavy demand.
Antonline Xbox Series X/S Restock
Antonline Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: Early This Week (Rumored)
It’s been a disappointing couple of weeks for Antonline customers, especially those who are looking for an Xbox. 2 weeks ago, the online retailer only had Series S consoles in stock, and there were none to be found last week whatsoever.
We’re certain that Antonline will be returning to form soon, as the retailer has proven itself a consistent restocker in the past.
Bear in mind, Antonline always sells Xbox Series X/S restocks in bundles, meaning that you’ll be paying a higher price for the console. However, it’s been known to be one of the easiest stores to buy from – and bundles can help stop scalpers from grabbing the Xbox first!
GameStop Xbox Series X/S Restock
GameStop Xbox Series X/S Restock: July 15
It’s been 3 weeks since our last Xbox Series X/S restock at GameStop, which means only one thing – it’s about time for another. A couple of weeks ago, we got a huge GameStop Xbox restock actually in-store, and we expect to see another drop again soon.
And on top of dropping devices in stores, online restocks are still fairly common too. It seems that signing up for GameStop’s PowerUp Rewards Pro membership will net you a better chance at the Xbox restock if it goes live again this week.
UPDATE: GameStop is now going live with new Xbox bundles on July 15!
What’s more, it appears that Apple Pay is the best way to checkout your new Xbox Series X/S, with LordOfRestocks on Twitter dubbing the payment method “GameStop’s weakness”.
Microsoft Xbox Series X/S Restock
Microsoft Xbox Series X/S Restock: This Week (Rumored)
It’s now been a whopping 4 weeks since Xbox Series X/S consoles were in stock at Microsoft, so we’re overdue a restock very soon. The Xbox publisher tends to restock early in the week, so keep your eyes open.
Buying an Xbox Series X/S from Microsoft itself guarantees a good price and quick shipping, but it’s surprisingly not the most reliable restocker.
Walmart Xbox Series X/S Restock
Walmart Xbox Series X/S Restock: This Week (Rumored)
Our last Xbox Series X/S restock at Walmart was July 1. Now, as we reach the midpoint of the month, it’s not unlikely for another Xbox drop this week.
But is Walmart secretly restocking Xbox consoles in its U.S. stores instead? If you’ve got a local retailer, it may be worth stopping in to see if there’s an Xbox already in stock!
Amazon Xbox Series X/S Restock
Amazon Xbox Series X/S Restock: This Week (Rumored)
There’s no way to predict when Amazon will be dropping Xbox consoles, as the online retailer appears to pick dates completely at random. The exception to the rule was last month, where we were able to predict a restock for Amazon Prime Day.
Now that Prime Day is over, we’ve seen the retailer go live with Xbox Series X and S stock. But one Amazon employee is leaking thousands of extra PS5 consoles are ready to ship, so it’s not impossible that more Xbox Series X/S are in stock too!
That’s all we know about the Xbox Series X/S restocks from July 5-11 right now, but be sure to stay tuned for updated information as it arrives.
And with Phil Spencer announcing plans for future Xbox studio acquisitions, could another big studio takeover be on the horizon?
Bear in mind that if you’re a Windows 10 or Xbox One owner, you can reserve an Xbox Series X/S now!
