Are you still looking for a PS5 or Xbox Series X? Well, GameStop is about to bring the heat with a bunch of bundles falling today.
The retailer announced that they will be selling “A limited number of PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S” bundles today (Thursday, January 21). It’s even going to store Nintendo Switch packages, if you try to track the dockable console with some (hopefully) nice packages. From 13:15 (ET) there is no PS5 stock available.

But as always, expect these devices to sell out and go fast on that. It’s bad enough that GameStop’s tweet refers to this incoming stock as “a limited number”, but it is also recommended that you turn on alerts for their social media account to do so.
This proposal from GameStop is both smart shopping and smart marketing. While buyers can get faster notification of availability, this allows users to GameStop send them push notifications about anything that it will.
EadsHeads up❗ – A limited number of PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S, and Nintendo Switch console packages will be available tomorrow at https://t.co/CYyCoH1dWE.

When you look at GameStop’s recent tweets, it suggests that you choose notifications that you get notifications about their live streams of games, promotions about games being sold and videos from people who succeed in buying a console from the retailer.
And you may not get spam like that on the home screen, but at this speed you may have no choice. And the other accounts may not be more useful. Even those Twitter accounts that focus on PS5 alerts can send you alerts for stocks that do not apply to you, be it in another country or a retailer that requires membership, such as Sam’s Club.
