Amazon PS5 restock: Date, time and shopping tips for next major UK stock drop

    244

    Amazon is next in line to restock the PlayStation 5 console ahead of Christmas.

    The online retailer doesn’t restock the device often, but when it does, the stock drops tend to be pretty sizeable.

    With this in mind, PS5 customers should login to Amazon on the morning of December 8.

    According to PS5 Stock Alerts UK, the PlayStation 5 will be available to purchase from Amazon between 8-10am UK time.

    When buying from Amazon, customers are encouraged to login to their accounts prior to buying, and potentially try on two separate devices.

    Furthermore, Amazon often gives priority access to Prime members, so maybe now is a good time to renew your subscription.

    “It is highly likely that we will see a PS5 restock on Amazon for both the Digital and Disc tomorrow morning, usually between 8-10am,” reads a PS5 UK Stock tweet.

    “This has not been confirmed by Amazon, however we do have word of it. If it is not tomorrow we should see one over the coming days. You can buy on the same account if you have previously, however it is one per account, per drop.

    “Ensure you keep your notifications on for any pings, and be as fast as you can! They are usually in stock for 5-10 minutes.”

    If you fail to secure a console from Amazon, then it might be worth trying the second-hand market, especially now that prices have started to drop.

    CEX, eBay and Cash Converters all have PS5 consoles in stock and ready to ship, although you will have to pay a little more than the recommended retail price.

    It’s also worth bookmarking some of the more popular stock checker accounts for even more alerts and information.

    This includes Digital Foundry DealsStock InformerPS5 UK Stock – Instant UpdatesPS5 UK Stock and Express Gaming – the latter of which will have live updates throughout the week.

    Some of the accounts mentioned above have Discord groups for PS5 customers, while some have live streams and alerts on sites like YouTube.

    • If it says it’s failed when trying to checkout, it means that bundle is now OOS. So go back to the bundles and pick another one. [GAME]

    • Checking out too much too quickly will give you a 30-60 second timeout, so don’t rush it. If this happens, just wait a bit then try again. [GAME]
