Struggling to get your hands on an Xbox Series X console ahead of Christmas? You won't want to miss out on the Xbox Series X restock, which went live on Walmart at 12pm ET on Cyber Monday (November 29). The only catch? This is exclusively for Walmart+ members.

Just like Amazon Prime, Walmart+ is a paid membership subscription for shopping online. In addition to the aforementioned exclusive Cyber Monday sale (and other sales events) you also get free delivery from your store — including groceries. Other handy account bonuses include scan & go shopping in-store, as well as fuel and Rx prescription discounts. It's worth considering if you frequent your local Walmart.

If you're only interested in signing up for membership to gain access to the Cyber Monday sale and grab yourself an Xbox Series X, it's worth pointing out that you must be a paying member in order to qualify. The free trial will not give you access to this restock! To create an account and subscribe, simply head on over to the Walmart+ sign-up page (opens in new tab), scroll down and click the 'Start Paid membership' button.

We'll be rounding up more Cyber Monday Xbox Series X deals throughout the week for the latest discounts on games, headsets, storage and more.

To get the best chance on scoring yourself an Xbox Series X on Cyber Monday, you want to have Walmart+. Just remember to skip the free trial by clicking the 'Start Paid membership' button or you'll be left out. (You can always cancel after a month if you don't want to carry on using it.)

Xbox Series X $499 at Walmart (opens in new tab)

Xbox Series X is Microsoft's new flagship, as its most powerful console with over 12TF GPU performance and a custom SSD. It boasts up to 4K resolution and 120 FPS, full backward compatibility across four generations, and ray-tracing support.

Prices for Walmart+ are $12.95 for a single month or $98 for the entire year. There's no guarantee at all that signing up will ensure you can buy an Xbox Series X, but it's definitely your best bet during the Cyber Monday deal mania.

Once you're signed up, check out the linked listing pages below and expect Xbox Series X stock to go live at 12pm ET on November 29. The Xbox Series X will be $499 (opens in new tab). Beware of higher prices from third-party resellers. Avoid these at all costs!

We recommend you get signed into your Walmart+ account early and make sure all your shipping and payment details are accurate so you can add the console to your basket and check out immediately. We expect Walmart to potentially encounter technical difficulties with its site due to demand and so ensuring you spend as little time loading pages as possible is the way to go.

  • Gonna ask again how is this "catch" not being vilified? I don't get how this is better than scalping other than it's Walmart. Seems to me to be the exact same thing as scalping
  • It should be vilified. Walmart has been selling them for nearly $1000 for months, now they are offering them for retail price if you buy their service.
  • Walmart doesn't sell them for nearly $1k. Third party sellers sell them on their site. This W+ deal is actually Walmart selling the product, not a third party.
  • Well, one way to reduce ease of scalpers scooping up the supply is to only sell to validated accounts. A Walmart+ account would be validated. Seems fair to me and good for Walmart+ customers (I'm not one).
  • It's technically better as it's only a 100 dollar FU, but it's hardly some giant favor to consumers
  • I would equate this to a big box store like Costco or Walmart'S own Sam's Club where you have to be a member to shop. I'm surprised Best Buy hasn't done this with their plans yet.
  • $13 a month, and you can cancel afterwards. Paying an extra $13 to get a new console is pretty damn good deal these days.
  • I agree that is better than 500 more on ebay or Amazon
