Amazon is sending out email invites to buy a PS5 or Xbox Series X - The Verge
If you requested an invite to buy a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X console from Amazon, it's time to keep a close eye on your email inbox. The invites are going out in waves, and if you get one, you have just 72 hours to make the purchase.
Back in June, Amazon began offering invite requests for an opportunity to buy the hard-to-get PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles — allowing anyone to try their luck without the stress of a live restock and all the F5 spamming. Now, nearly two months later, Amazon has confirmed via its Amazon Games Twitter account that invites are finally going out for both consoles. These invites will be sent in waves, with another round expected to go out next week.
If you receive one of these invites, you will have 72 hours to make the purchase on Amazon’s site from the unique link in the email. Speaking from firsthand experience of the Xbox invite I received today, Amazon’s emails look a little generic — they’re simply from “Amazon.com,” and the subject line reads just “Congrats, you’re invited!” Which, frankly, looks a little spammy at first glance. So be sure you don’t accidentally delete it on impulse like I nearly did.
Invitations have been sent! Don't miss your invitation to purchase a PlayStation 5. If you did not receive an invitation this time, we will have another round next week!https://t.co/lq6ao4nstY pic.twitter.com/OMDljXnnZK
