Many are searching for where to buy Xbox Series X today, three days after the new Microsoft console landed in the US and UK. At time of writing there’s no Xbox Series X stock currently available, but we don’t know when more units will become available again so you’ll want to keep checking the retailer links below to be in with a shot.
We’re keeping this page fresh with all the latest updates on where to buy Xbox Series X, so bookmark if you’re looking for more Xbox Series X stock this weekend.
We saw initial stock landing at Microsoft, Best Buy, Amazon, GameStop and Walmart in the US, but so far there have been no new consoles hitting the shelves. The UK has seen Xbox Series X stock from Microsoft, John Lewis, Very and Amazon since launch so far – but we’d keep checking on Currys and Argos for more updates this week as well, just in case we see more.

Xbox Series X: check for latest stock updates at Best Buy
Best Buy is the second retailer we’re yet to hear from in this wave of launch stock. The retailer remained quiet over the release period yesterday, with the console listed as ‘out of stock’. Keep checking for the latest stock updates to be one of the first to know when those consoles do become available.
Xbox Series X: check for latest stock updates at Amazon
We haven’t seen any Xbox Series X stock hitting Amazon’s lofty aisles so far, so stay tuned for more updates. When it does land, word will spread quickly so make sure you’re at the front of the line.

Microsoft has been flashing in and out of stock over the last few hours, so we’d recommend checking in frequently if you’re having difficulty buying Xbox Series X. Not only that, but you can also grab a console using the All Access scheme at Microsoft – allowing you to buy Xbox Series X for $34.99 a month.
Best Buy is offering a discounted controller when you buy Xbox Series X, bringing the new gamepad’s price down to $44.99 from the usual $59.99. However, we’re yet to see the Xbox Series X live on the site.
When stock does arrive you’ll be able to grab a discounted Xbox controller, though you can also pick one up for the full price right now.
B&H Photo won’t be the first place many look when trying to buy Xbox Series X. While that does mean you’ve got a better chance at beating the crowds here, B&H Photo is likely to have less stock on the shelves compared to some of the bigger tech giants.
Newegg’s initial Xbox Series X pre-orders were limited, but we’re holding out hope that we’ll see more stock when other retailers open their doors. Microsoft has named the retailer as one carrying day-one stock, which means you’ll want to keep an eye out here as well.
If you’re really struggling to buy Xbox Series X today, there is another option. StockX is a marketplace retailer that allows sellers to post an asking price, buyers to post a buying price and an immediate transaction when both requests match. Prices are, obviously, a little higher here, but unlike eBay StockX ships all products to its warehouse for inspection before sending them on to you. We’d recommend waiting this first wave of stock out a little longer, but if you’re desperate there’s plenty of stock making it a reliable option today.

Xbox Series X: Check for latest stock updates at Amazon
Amazon just launched more Xbox Series X stock in the UK, which then ran out in five minutes. You’ll need to move quickly if more becomes available then, so keep checking that link for the latest updates.
Xbox Series X: Check for latest stock updates at Very
Why keep your eye on Very for more chances to buy Xbox Series X? Well, Very often holds stock back for higher value bundles – which means you’re more likely to be able to buy a new Xbox if you’re willing to grab a Game Pass subscription or extra controller alongside it. That means this stock lasts a little longer than other flashes of stock in general, giving you more time to get to checkout.

If you’re looking to buy Xbox Series X at launch, and have fast and free shipping you’ll want to head to Amazon. Not only are you likely to get the best delivery times (if you’re a Prime member that is), but we saw a good amount of stock holding on at Amazon over the pre-order window as well.
Microsoft launched its own Xbox Series X stock early , giving those with eagle eyes the opportunity to buy Xbox Series X ahead of launch day. While stock does remain out at the moment, we’d keep checking in as we were seeing units flashing in and out all the time. You can also save 20% on a second wireless controller when you buy Xbox Series X through Microsoft as well.
There’s no word yet on how many consoles Currys will stock over launch day, and with no landing page to speak of things are looking a little suspect right now. By contrast, the PS5 already has a well stocked page ready and waiting for launch next week.
Very had a good run during the initial pre-order window, offering up final waves of early stock far longer than other retailers. This is mostly due to the fact that Very keeps stock back to sell with premium accessories for higher value bundles (though it’s rare to save any cash, you might be able to buy Xbox Series X easier if you’re willing to spend a little more and pick up some peripherals with it).
Argos may not have a landing page for those looking to buy Xbox Series X just yet, but it’s certainly one of the best places to head to once that stock does land. That’s because the highstreet retailer organises its stock by region, which means you’re competing against a significantly smaller pool of shoppers. Nevertheless, that does mean that stock will run out faster as well.

When will you be able to buy Xbox Series X?
The initial wave of Xbox Series X stock sold out pretty fast on November 10, but we’ve seen that inventory refreshing a couple of times in the UK so far. Over in the US things are still pretty quiet but our best advice is to keep checking the store links above as you’ll need to be in the right place at the right time to catch more chances to buy Xbox Series X this weekend.
We’re looking for more stock to arrive over the next few days, but the next big date you should keep in your mind is Black Friday. We may well see more retailers offering new opportunities to buy Xbox Series X over the biggest shopping weekend of the year in efforts to entice people into their virtual aisles.
Keep refreshing then, and be ready to buy Xbox Series X on November 27 if you’re still out of luck.
How to buy Xbox Series X: our top tips
1. Find your retailers
The lists above offer up all the latest updates on which retailers are likely to bring more chances to buy Xbox Series X over the next few days. Prioritise larger retailers as they’re the most likely to offer up more Xbox Series X stock and are also already set up for fast shipping as well.
2. Prepare your wallet
We’re sure you’ve already prepared to spend some cash, but having your details at the ready will save you valuable time when that first wave of stock hits. Better yet, if you’re comfortable saving your payment details or using PayPal you’re in for a much less stressful experience.
3. Sign in
Many retailers will need an email address alongside your shipping information to allow you to checkout, and this is causing many shoppers looking to buy Xbox Series X to lose valuable seconds. Be sure to sign into these retailers if you already have an account or create one if not. Of course, if you’re not comfortable signing in or creating an account, keep your email address and shipping information handy for a quick copy and paste when you’re against the clock.
4. Find the product page
We’ll be linking you straight to the product page of either the Xbox Series X or the Xbox Series S when stock does arrive. However, if you’re going it alone you’ll want to make sure you’re on the correct product page ahead of time to avoid spending those crucial seconds searching for the console itself on a retailer website. Plus, if demand skyrockets, sites run the risk of crashing which can be particularly frustrating if you’re still trying to navigate the virtual aisles.
5. Don’t give up
If all is going to plan but stock runs out at the final hurdle don’t give up. We’ve seen retailers like Best Buy replenishing their stock every few minutes when they go live with a new batch, which means quick refreshes can get you back in the game in seconds.
