Been waiting for something like this to subscribe. Now how do I find out when my subscription ends? I'm sure it is easy to find I am just having trouble located the info.

The easiest way is to go to your download list of games and find the latest PS+ game you got to see the expiration date on it.

I was planning to get a $50 PSN card at Sam's Club today so I could take advantage of this offer. Unfortunately, their network went down, so that means I couldn't purchase the card, as there wasn't a way to "activate" it. Guess I'll try again tomorrow.

Idea: Can I combine this with the PlayStation Card offer? Get approved for the card, get a year of PS+, input, get additional 3 free months?

I just bought Ps+ on January 21st. Do you think Sony would add on the extra time considering how recent it was?


I just renewed on 1/24, so I'm in the same boat. I called Sony customer service, and was told they could refund me what I spend on the subscription, and then I could rebuy it under the promotion. I was told, though, that since there would be a lapse in my subscription, that I might lose any free games that I got during the past year during my prior subscription, if they aren't being offered for free anymore.

This is different from what I've always heard about PS Plus. I was under the assumption that once your subscription lapsed, if you picked it up again, you could play anything you had picked up under your previous subscription. I told the rep that, and he said that he was told by the specialist he checked with that i might lose some stuff...

Anyone ever let a subscription lapse, and then renew later? If so, did you lose anything?

Thanks, if it works it would be awesome, surprised no one mentioned this. I assume everybody already has that credit card.

I let it expire, and renew many times, haven't lose anything.

Really hope this works until March, we might see some cheaper one-year PS+ during the time frame, and further stack on this deal.

as long as you have the Internet. your account is set-up for a US account and it will stay that way unless you change it. You can change your location but that will not change the fact that your account is set-up with the PlayStation network America. I have a Japanese account bc I was in Japan when the ps3 first came out and I'm now back in the states so I use two accounts one for the Japanese Network & Market the other for USA

Hi guys

If I buy a 12mo PSN Plus from Amazon/Best Buy this promo will add 12+3mo or a specific 12+3mo card is needed? I tried the Canadian Seller link but the auction ended.

thanks in advance.

As long as it is a full 12 month code, it'll add the +3 months. The promotion is for any 12 month purchase (physical or online). You can not get the +3 months by doing 12 x 1month cards or 4 x 3month cards. It has to be the full year.

Sorry guys. I am a little late to the party and trying to figure out what's going on. I assumed that the 3 free months would only come with the purchase directly from PSN, but it sounds like others are getting it with any code they redeem. If I buy a code from Amazon or Best Buy, will I still get the extra 3 months?

Also, does anyone know how many years will stack for PS Plus? I know Xbox Live Gold limits it to 4 years, so I didn't know if PS Plus has a similar limit.

I'm thinking about getting this, but I only want the discounts on PSN games, I'm not really interested in the free games that you can't play once your subscription runs out, though that is a small plus. Would this service still be worth it?
