PS5 restock Walmart discount? Here’s the truth about this secret console ‘deal’

But here’s why we’re waiting: some people are still waiting for their March 18 orders, and that delay has led to Walmart offering a meaningful PS5 discount to those customers, with their total price paid going from $499 to $399 for PS5 Disc – if they ask.

The Walmart PS5 discount explained

Walmart is now offering anywhere from $50 to $100 off stuck-in-transit orders of the new Sony console, according to several Twitter replies sent to Matt Swider, as he tracks PS5 restock everyday. PS5-less customers have mixed emotions about this naturally. It should be noted that other customers saw their order cancelled.

The last Walmart PS5 restock, on Thursday, March 18, apparently sold more than the inventory the US retailer had on hand. We previously reported that it went through waves of stock every 10 minutes for two hours. Given the fact that PS5 demand is so strong, it makes sense that most orders were actually PS5 pre-orders.
