The RTX 3080 may be back in stock at Best Buy soon – here’s how to track it
If you’re wondering when to find the RTX 3080 in stock at Best Buy and other retailer stores in the US, then follow our GPU restock Twitter tracker Matt Swider, who will send you an alert when there’s an Nvidia graphics card restock– if you follow his account and turnon notifications (the little bell icon).
Matt has been tracking GPU restock opportunities – specifically RTX 3080 stock – at Best Buy, Newegg and Antonline, as well as EVGA, Amazon and Walmart, although those have a queue or sell out immediately.

RTX 3080 news: Best Buy often restocks on Thursdays
Best Buy has been far from consistent with its product restock efforts, but among its GPU stock, the RTX 3080 is in stock most consistently on a Thursday. So we’ll update our RTX 3080 restock news if and when it happens tomorrow, July 8.
It’s been exactly one month since the RTX 3080 was available to purchase at Best Buy. That’s about the length of time we see right before there’s new RTX GPU stock from Best Buy, which is the largest electronics retailer in the US. Microcenter has had the RTX 3080 recently in stores, so there’s no good reason why Best Buy shouldn’t be able to offer its inventory this week online.
There’s a problem: the Best Buy restock time is never consistent, which is why our GPU restock Twitter tracker has become so popular recently. Instead of you having to check Best Buy all day every Thursday, we’re doing that for you. Of course, this all depends on Best Buy RTX 3080 stock; there’s no guarantee it’ll be this Thursday.
If can’t find RTX 3080 in stock at Best Buy for MSRP
The Best Buy RTX 3080 restock is only one avenue we’re checking. We also post daily stock updates for the Nvidia RTX graphics cards when other stores have them in stock.
Newegg Shuffle: This popular PC components store has consistent RTX GPU stock, although it’s been several days since it has offered the RTX 3080. Other GPU options have included the RTX 3070 and RTX 3090 for a little above MSRP and often with a bundle (like a monitor, PC case or motherboard). Even though this is a popular product lottery, entering enough times has proven successful for a handful of our followers.
Antonline: Antonline often has RTX graphics cards in stock weekly and pairs them with other components (just like Newegg does). So you’ll also be buying a motherboard, case, monitor or something else with it. The difference with Antonline is that it’s first-come-first-serve (vs Newegg’s lottery), so if you’re fast enough, this is the one to watch. You just have to be okay with GPU bundles with tons of extras.
Amazon: This one is at the bottom simply because it’s harder to find a GPU restock at Amazon. Whether it’s bot scooping up the console before everyone else or a lack of inventory, securing a GPU at Amazon feels next to impossible. That’s why our GPU restock tweets tend to focus on Newegg, where it’s done by chance, and Best Buy, where it often has two weeks of RTX stock built up and unleashes them all at once. Amazon GPU sales come in drops and drabs.
