Possibilities for replenishing Xbox Series X
You can find both the Xbox Series X and the cheaper Series S on the same Amazon product page.
This is the product page for the Xbox series on GameStop.
You may also want to visit the store’s Xbox landing page to see both new consoles, but here’s the product page for the Xbox Series X.
If you want the latest Xbox Series X news, there’s probably nowhere better than Microsoft’s own Xbox Series X homepage.
This is Target’s product page for the Xbox Series X.
Here you can buy the Xbox Series X from Newegg if the retailer has stock.
Here you can find the Xbox Series X at Best Buy (when the stock drops).
We highly recommend that you wait for stock to appear at regular retailers so that you can purchase an Xbox Series X at its regular retail price. But if you just can’t wait, keep in mind that the average price of the Xbox Series X on eBay is about $ 800.
Are you willing to pay a premium of hundreds of dollars over the list price? We don’t recommend this, but StockX is a reputable eBay-style site that lets you buy a new Xbox – as long as you’re willing to pay $ 650 or more.
