PS5 EE restock: Time, date, tips and tricks for SURPRISE UK stock drop

PS5 customers can pick up a PlayStation from an unlikely source this week.

The next confirmed PS5 stock drop for UK customers is taking place on the BT/EE website.

The EE PS5 restock has a March 30 release date. There’s no official launch time, although previous EE stock drops have taken place at around 8am.

Express Online has contacted a BT/EE spokesperson for confirmation, and will update this article once the time has been announced.

There’s more bad news if you’re not with EE, because the PS5 consoles will only be available for existing customers.

“Great news, we’re releasing a small amount of Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 on EE,” reads an official EE statement.

“These consoles are only available for existing EE customers via Add to Plan. As with previous console releases, it will be via a self-serve online order journey only.

“We’ll let existing EE Mobile customers who have pre-registered their interest know about this stock release, ahead of them going on sale.”

To give yourself the best possible chance of bagging a PlayStation, check out the tips and tricks below for buying from EE.

If you’re not an EE customer – or you’ve just signed a contract but are yet to register online – then you’ll need to sign up for an account by visiting this page.

Once you’ve signed up and registered with EE, then it’s worth filling out this form to express an interest in receiving PS5 stock alerts.

As mentioned in the message at the top of the page, registering your interest will ensure you get stock alerts and on sale times for the PlayStation 5.

When the console is in stock – or if you’ve got your eye on any other PlayStation 5 products – visit the Add to Plan page for all of your shopping needs.

Other than that, it’s worth following all of the regular stock alert Twitter accounts and the Stock Informer website, while also revisiting this page for the latest PS5 UK stock updates.

The EE stock drops should coincide with restocks at the likes of Very, John Lewis and Amazon.

That’s according to the PS5 UK Stock Instant Updates Twitter page: “Still looking at drops from Very, John Lewis & ASDA. Alongside Amazon early next week.

“GAME’s next major drop likely 6th to 8th April 9-10am. Also Official DualSense Charging Station is finally in stock.”

Tesco and ASDA are also expected to restock the device, although in the case of Tesco, at least, it will involve collecting in store.

Now may also be the time to visit the likes of CEX and eBay, as PS5 prices are starting to plummet.
