Walmart restock event — tips and tricks
The first thing you’ll want to do is create a Walmart.com account if you don’t already have one. Enter your address and credit card info so that in the event you score a console, you can quickly checkout. You’ll also want to know the correct landing pages for the PS5 at Walmart.
