Where to buy the Xbox Series X

The Xbox Series X has finally arrived at all your favorite stores and sites! If you’ve been looking forward to this release, you’re probably wondering where you can get that big black box at, and what options are most likely to be in stock. We’re lending a hand with our guide on who is selling the Series X, handy links to their pages, and what you should know about buying.

Oh, and if you’re looking for a PS5, we can also help out there.

Amazon

Xbox Series X – $499.99-$999.99

Current status: Limited to collectibles

Amazon is currently out of traditional Xbox Series X models. Occasionally, new stock will pop in and quickly sell out, so it’s worth checking in with this page from time to time, and possibly sign up to get email updates for the page. What are available are collectible versions of the Series X being resold at high prices by third-party stores on Amazon, which may be an option if you’re desperate.

Also keep in mind that Amazon is reporting that those who have already bought a Series X may not get their console until late December, so it could be quite a wait.

Best Buy

Xbox Series X – $499.99

Current status: Out of stock

Best Buy is a good option if you have a Best Buy card and want to choose a financing option. You can also add a Geek Squad warranty for $70, which lasts for two years and covers all kinds of console-related mishaps.

Walmart

Xbox Series X – $499.99

Current status: Out of Stock

Walmart has a very robust in-stock alert system that we suggest you sign up for. Walmart also makes some effort to stagger stock rollouts to help discourage bots and make it easier for people to find consoles throughout the day, which makes it a nice site to check in on.

GameStop

Xbox Series X – $499.99

Current status: Out of Stock

Note that GameStop also has separate pages for a couple of different options. There’s a Launch Day bundle for $904.99 that includes Gears Tactics and AC: Valhalla, as well as an Elite Controller and a headset. The site also has a separate page for signing up for the All Access package, which is a payment plan through Microsoft that includes access to GamePass as well as the Series X for installments of $34.99 per month. Availability for both of these options may be limited.

Lenovo

Xbox Series X – $499.99

Current status: Out of Stock

Lenovo has currently taken down its Series X webpage, possibly in an attempt to avoid confusion and deter bots until they get new stock in and are ready to start selling. Our link is where you should be able to find the console when it becomes available once more.

Newegg

Xbox Series X – $499.99

Current status: Out of Stock

This page will show all available Xbox Series X and Series S models so you can see them all at once. Options primarily differ based on what controller color you want at this time.

Target

Xbox Series X – $499.99

Current status: Out of Stock

Target very usefully provides information about availability at any nearby Target stores too, so you can see if there is an in-stock option for you. Note that Target is another site that makes signing up for the All Access payment plan super simple if you would prefer to pay that way. You can also choose a two-year warranty if you want.

Sam’s Club

Xbox Series X – $499.99

Current status: Out of Stock

Sam’s Club has a couple of notable extra bundles, such as a Series X that comes with a RIG 500 Pro HX headset. You will, of course, get any awards associated with your Sam’s Club membership as well.

Can I find the Series X on eBay?

Yes, you can, because a variety of eBay sellers (and various bots) stocked up when the Xbox Series X was released on November 10. However, the big catch is that these sellers are marking up the Series X by at least a few hundred dollars: You’re basically paying for a guaranteed delivery if other sources run out of stock. It’s not the most reliable or safest option, but it could be a possibility if you’re in a hurry.
