If you’re looking to get your hands on Sony’s coveted Playstation 5 in time for the holidays, then you’ll want to head to Walmart’s website on Cyber Monday. The online retailer will restock both editions of the in-demand console in honor of the huge deals day, granting early access to Walmart+ members.

The restock, which includes the PS5 ($499) and Digital Edition ($399) will drop at exactly 9 a.m. PT on Nov. 29. Because of high demand, you’ll need to sign up for a Walmart+ membership, which grants access to the virtual line for purchase in addition to other Cyber Monday deals four hours earlier than other customers. It costs $13 a month but you can sign up for a 15-day trial in order to snag the PS5 before it sells out.

Unlike past restocks, the console isn’t bundled with additional items. Instead, both consoles will be sold alone, alongside a DualSense controller, which means customers won’t be pulled into spending more money. Both editions have identical specs save for the PS5’s 4k Blu-ray player, a feature that costs an additional $100 for those looking to play games or watch movies on a physical disc.

If you miss the initial restock Monday morning, the mega-retailer can be expected to re-release the devices later in the day at up-marked prices.

Walmart isn’t the only online retailer who grants early access as part of their membership programs. GameStop’s restocks have been exclusive to Power Up Rewards Pro members in the past, meaning it might be worth it to invest in a Pro membership for $15 a month to get immediate access. The membership includes perks like a Game Informer subscription, a $5 reward coupons per month and a 10% extra trade credit on games and accessories.
