Track Xbox Series X | S Stock:
Manually checking can be time consuming and might take more time from your busy schedule than you can afford to give, so take advantage of tools that will check the stock levels for you.

Confirm your purchase
A word of warning, if you manage to make a purchase, make sure to call the retailer, as there have been lots of reports of people managing to make a purchase and finding out the company has sold out.
I myself managed to make a purchase today, I even paid for next day delivery as well as a premium to ensure that the console would arrive in the morning. When I called they said I would see my Xbox Series X “hopefully before Christmas”.
Just play it safe and check with them, in many cases, it’s simply issues with server loads on websites not handling the volume of traffic, so the stock data is getting delayed in updating, which then results in unfulfillable orders.
It’s an issue we unfortunately also see a lot during both Black Friday and even January sales.
