Top tips for buying a PS5 at Amazon during a restock

by Jeremy

Amazon has PS5 restocks less frequently than other stores, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t keep an eye out for one at the retailer. Since its release in November 2020, the PS5 has been incredibly difficult to find online and in-store. The pandemic certainly through a wrench in production, but it’s also just a popular console. We’ve rounded up a few tips that should help you snag one from Amazon.

Create an Amazon account

The best way to ensure you have a smooth checkout is by setting up an Amazon account. If you don’t already have an account and purchase a PS5, you may be left scrambling to fill in the information and waste precious time. By the time everything’s filled in, the console may have already sold out. Don’t let it happen to you. Creating an Amazon account is painless.
