Follow Lbabinz on Twitter, and turn on notifications for all of his tweets - https://twitter.com/Lbabinz?s=20

You'll get a lot of notifications for other gaming stuff but the moment a page is updated with PS5 in stock, he posts, and you'll typically have a minute to checkout from the moment the notification appears before its out of stock again. That's how I was able to get a PS5 and Series X

Here are more tips

- Avoid buying via PayPal ( extra popups meaning extra time )
- Avoid credit cards with Master pass and verified by visa ( extra pop ups )
- create a profile and fill out all the information ( Address and credit card ) and memorize your CCV code

I would disagree about PP.

'nother tip, with sites like BB and TS have a shortcut to the checkout cart.

PayPal has been successful for me a multitude of times. Have one touch set up.

Unless people are somehow setting up multiple Costco memberships for themselves, this isn't bots, it's just individuals who are on the ball. There are thousands of people in LBabinz' Discord channel, and they have 48,000 Twitter followers. All of whom, if they so desire, can have an instant notification the second a new PS5 drop happens.

The bot can still grab 1, that's all these guys are really getting anyway each time. I've clicked from the discord, had accounts login, everything ready to go and it's still gone in an instant.
