Currys has once again restocked the PS5 console, but only to VIP customers.
This means that unless you’ve received an email inviting you to purchase a console, you won’t actually be able to do so.
“We held a new VIP draw and it’s great news!” reads the email Currys sends to customers.
“We’ve got a PS5 bundle reserved just for you! Want to secure yours now? Just follow the steps below to get hold of your brand new PS5 bundle.”
The first step is to locate your nearest store, which you’ll need to visit in person no later than August 17.
When you arrive in store, show staff your code and select a bundle to purchase. After paying for your PS5 bundle, staff will let you know when the console will be delivered.
Then it’s just a matter of showing up and collecting your brand new PlayStation 5 console.
And don’t worry if you didn’t receive a VIP code to purchase PS5 stock, because there are ways around it.
The PS5 UK Stock account is currently trying to hook people up with unwanted codes donated by other customers.
“Currys PS5 VIP codes have been sent out!” reads a PS5 UK Stock tweet. “I want to act as a place for people with codes to connect with those who need one.
“Please comment below if you want a code, then anyone who has a spare one and wants to kindly donate, DM them
“If anyone doesn’t know what these are, they’re codes for you to go into Currys in-store and redeem one of those bundles, which take a few days to order into the store.
“If you have received a code from someone, please comment on your post to let others know you don’t need one anymore… it will make it easier for people who are donating the codes.”
If you want to get your own PS5 VIP Pass directly from the retailer, then you’ll need to visit the Currys website and sign up for a chance to buy a PS5 in the future.
While sign-ups are currently closed, there’s a chance they’ll re-open in the future, so keep an eye on the PS5 hub at Currys.
It’s also worth contacting local stores for potential restocks or cancelled orders.
Outside of Currys, it’s worth bookmarking some of the more popular stock checker accounts for even more alerts and information.
This includes Digital Foundry Deals, Stock Informer, PS5 UK Stock – Instant Updates, PS5 UK Stock and Express Gaming – the latter of which will have live updates throughout the week.
Some of the accounts mentioned above have Discord groups for PS5 customers, while some have live streams and alerts on sites like YouTube.
