Order a PS5 from “E like simple”: This is how you get the popular console

Looking for a PlayStation 5? The electricity discounter “E wie einfach” offers the PS5 with a drive, a second controller and 24 months of PS Plus as an addition to the green electricity tariff. We looked at the conditions and revealed whether the offer is worthwhile.

PS5 Disc Edition + 2nd controller and 2 years PS Plus at the green electricity tariff

The PS5 is also not available in the new year and is only offered on eBay at completely overpriced prices (check the current availability here). However, there is another way to secure the NextGen console: You can get it from the electricity provider “E wie einfach” (electricity discount subsidiary of E.on) PlayStation 5 (Disc Edition) including 2nd controller and 2 years of PlayStation Plus as a bonus to the electricity tariff. In addition to the regular costs of the tariff (monthly basic price + price per kWh consumed) there is a one-time additional payment of 349 euros on. For comparison: The total cost of the hardware plus PS Plus is around 680 euros.

Tariff details:

  • 24 month price guarantee: The electricity price remains unchanged for at least 24 months
  • 24 Mo­nate Min­dest­ver­trags­lauf­zeit
  • 100 percent green electricity
  • Sony PlayStation 5 incl. 2nd controller and 2-year PlayStation Plus subscription for 349 euros as a bonus at the electricity tariff

PS5 with green electricity tariff: how do I get the console?

If your old electricity contract is about to expire, you have to instruct “E like simple” to oversee the change at least one month before the end of the contract period. This works over the phone or online in the customer portal.

You will get the PlayStation 5 earlier, however: After the contract has been successfully confirmed by “E wie einfach” and the one-time additional payment has been paid, the console will already be sent to you, even if you still get electricity from the old provider. Note: The earliest delivery date is only End of January 2022.

PlayStation 5 at E how easy: is the offer worth it?

Unfortunately, we cannot calculate exactly whether a change to “E wiesimple” is worthwhile for you, since various factors such as the state, household size and your own electricity consumption play an important role when it comes to electricity offers. In an example calculation for a three-person household in Berlin, we got a slightly higher price per kWh (34.66 cents) with a comparatively mediocre basic fee (25.60 euros per month). Our tip: Take a look at your current annual electricity bill and compare whether it is worth changing provider in terms of total costs for the next 24 months if you deduct the costs for the PS5.

The biggest advantage here is, of course, that you have the Sony PlayStation 5 Disc-Edition (RRP 499 euros), a second controller (RRP 69.99 euros) and 24 months of PlayStation Plus (RRP 119.98 euros) for a one-off payment of 349 euros. If you had to change your electricity provider anyway, the offer could be worthwhile.
