KEY POINTS

  • Target will hold an Xbox Series X|S sale on April 28
  • YouTuber Jake Randall said the Target sale is accurate 
  • Walmart and Best Buy are expected to follow suit

A few promising reports indicate that more Xbox Series X consoles are coming on Wednesday, with a few stores possibly holding more sales before this week ends.

Target is expected to release a fresh batch of Xboxes today, April 28, according to reports from TechRadar’s Matt Swider and YouTuber Jake Randall, who has been on point with his console restock leaks lately. Randall accurately reported on the previous console stock drops thanks to his friends in high places.

On Twitter, Randall announced an April 28 restock date for Target according to an internal email he received from one of his contacts, who is allegedly a high-level employee of the store chain. He also mentioned that Target might change the date due to an early leak by a different account, but Randall remains confident in his source’s information and Target’s consistency.

The leak coincides with Swider’s previous information regarding Target’s restock patterns. He stated that the leak makes sense due to how the store has been slowly building up its stock over the past week. Swider added that Target usually restocks between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. EDT, with 7:40 a.m. EDT being the most likely time when stocks are fully replenished.

On the other hand, Best Buy is reportedly making plans to restock by Friday, April 30, according to Swider. However, he said that it’s somewhat unlikely to happen considering how Best Buy sold Xbox Series X consoles last Monday despite its limited inventory, especially since it hasn’t restocked in a month. Best Buy’s usual pattern does involve going live on Fridays, so all hope might not be lost just yet.

Walmart is also expected to have more Xboxes for sale by tomorrow, April 29, based on its established restocking pattern. However, Swider noted that the store might sell fewer consoles than usual considering how its last console drop saw only a small inventory of Xboxes on hand. In the event that consoles are available tomorrow, they are expected to drop by 2:30 p.m. EDT.
