Note that typically they don't always show up on the system listing pages under used or on awd itself occasionally. They can only be found by already using the AWD links to the specific page in those cases.

Basically you have to bookmark the link for the sold out listing then hope you are there when it restocks.

Or get really lucky scrolling through AWD listings at 3am while you're waiting for the dog to finish taking a shit >.>

We've posted links to the product pages. If it's available through AWD you'll see it under used offerings.

Okay I see

Anyway my one order for an (A) Series X has been delayed twice now, most recently with an "approval required" email. Not looking good.

That explains then. Just have to be lucky when it pops up and at random hours

Just now saw a Series X at $271 come and go.  Wouldn't let me check out due to quantity limits - my indefinitely-delayed order is still pending.  Frustrating.

You'll get it. Just takes the right moment

Pretty much. Another trick was when they were in stock to add one to the cart and save for later and after it went oos it would update if any came back in stock. But you wouldn't see multiple listings and it typically defaults to the lowest priced option which includes regular sellers.

Gotcha but appreciate the heads up. It's why I love this community helping one another at times as we all deserve deals. Speaking of which I did see that 271 series x but think they listing is borked up as can't add or anything

It'll probably stay up for awhile like that until it's fixed

That always happens for a short time after someone else buys the last remaining qty.  There's a delay where it appears available but will yield a red text error when attempting to add to cart and/or checkout.

It can stay up for years as I have drackengard in my saved cart for about 2-3 years now and it won't let me purchase it.

How do you find the warehouse page, other than searching for warehouse. Is there navigation? Curious.

I use the mobile app which has an Amazon Warehouse tile when I open the app, this is actually the best way to get popular warehouse items, well for me anyway.

Yeah, co-signed. That's what I was using when the Series X popped up for me last night.

What is this "tile" you speak of? Have I been using the app incorrectly all these years; is there a way to customize the layout or something?

Like so: when you tap the icon in the lower right, this or something like it should pop up.20220518_145344.jpg

My "acceptable" is listed as expected delivery this weekend but hasn't shipped yet. Hoping it ships today.

I wouldn’t worry mine came later than expected, but did come. I imagine these will be like the Switch OLEDs and if they continue to sell out will go up in price. Switch OLEDs have been $275+ for a while now but used to be much less.

My (A) Series X came - generic brown box with no official Xbox packaging anywhere, but everything was in the box sealed and brand new. Console was still wrapped and sealed, same with controller, batteries, cables, even manuals and stuff. Overall - hell yeah. Real stoked on this one

watch out for the expansions, I got an extra 1TB for under $100. Overall super happy with the console.

Mine was listed as 'Acceptable - contains a scratch larger than 1" on the packaging'. Delivery expected between May 25th - May 27; I'll post the condition in this thread.

Are they hot swappable, do you know? I got a card for my Series S but I wonder if I can just plug it into the X without reformatting it.

Just checked and that's basically what mine was too: "Cosmetic imperfection(s) bigger than 1" on top, front or sides of item. Item will come repackaged.". Good luck let us know how it came in.

Oh I definitely will keep my eyes peeled. You have a link for the specific product they posted it under?

Same description on mine. Still showing May 21-23 but hasn't shipped yet. Has somebody tried turning Amazon off and back on again?

Yes, works identical to USB hard drives, can hot swap, though my first time jumping from X to S it was finicky reading for some reason, I think I was too gentle plugging it in

Delivery date updated from "by Monday" to "now arriving Friday."

Wonder if the delay means it's a return that hasn't been received yet.

Not sure, I did see one for $282 just a little while ago but they’re going instantly now vs the few minutes you had before to get one. But I would say yours should ship soon as they are still selling them, I know mine shipped after that last arrival date as I was given a window and it shipped after that window, don’t lose hope!
