EE free Power Bar out of stock due to high consumer demand
EE have announced they are taking a ‘power pause’ to replenish stocks of their free Power Bar after being inundated with one million requests in the first four days of its launch.
With the Power Bar launch more popular than their most popular smartphone launch to date, EE saw store visits over the weekend up by 300 percent as customer demand surged.
The news has left consumers frustrated and disappointed after failing to receive their Power Bar in store due to a lack of stock, with EE diverting remaining stock to their busiest stores. EE has pledged ‘if you have a code, we have a Power Bar for you’ to customers who have applied for the request code, but are yet to receive a Power Bar. However other users will have to wait until June 24, when the next rollout phase is due to begin.
The launch of the Power Bar was seen as a way of boosting their retail footfall.
