Yep. As long as it is a 12 month card you should get the 3 extra months.

Thanks for the info, this actually answered my question. Buying my card tomorrow I guess. I just got a BB reward certificate.

Anyone knows if I get a retail card at Best Buy/GameStop, will I get points?

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?

Unless you have a weird, picky taste in games, you should be able to easily make your money back in savings in a few months.

I bought four games in the 13 for '13 sale and saved $60 with that one purchase.

that sucks. he probably uses that as a cop out, he thinks people will let him off if his "wife" has a similar story.

Sweet, just saw this posting. This is the exact reason I've been sitting on my PS+ 1-year card I just got over the holidays. I was holding out for either a free game or a bonus month add-on and now I've got it.

Since I'll be locked in for Plus thru July 2014, I sure hope the PS4 allows you to pull all your free games down just the same. Can't imagine why it wouldn't...

Another way to easily check sub. In xmb, psn icon, account management, transaction management, services list, plus. It's easy.

To each his own, but if you are willing to pay for a subscription to get discounts, why wouldn't you be willing to pay for a subscription to get and keep using "free" games? Even if you are interested in just a portion of the freebies, it seems like it would be worth the same or more than whatever you are paying for discounted games. On principle, I don't like not owning those games, but for $50 per year with all the other features of the subscription, it seems like an easy compromise to make.

Looks like I get to redeem my last Target $15 card. Not bad getting more PS+ for only $1 a month. I was saving it for some type of deal or free game offer.

Had to bit. I don't know if I should get any of the discounted games before the sale ends or just wait for this week deals.

So do I need to actually purchase a 12 month card and input that code, or will I be able to just extend my existing PS+ sub with existing wallet funds? Will the system know the difference?

Frisky, if you're still keeping up with this thread, maybe you could throw an FAQ in the OP. Seems the same questions are being asked over and over.

Either will work, as long as it's a 12 month purchase/code input :D

FYI - Plus codes must be input on your PS3, they do not work in the online PSN store via PC, it gives you an error message.

If I get this..it will add on to what I have, right? Not re-start the time period from when I subscribe? I know this is a stupid as hell question, but it's Sony..

I expire in June, so I may as well take advantage of this.

It will stack, you are adding 15 months to your existing PS+ membership.

The problem is, people that do, don't need to post anything, since all their questions are answered right there.

And of course, the people that don't read, immediately post their question and wait for the answer.

Bumping this up since the new March Savings promo will essentially give you $10 back for getting the 12 month PS+ sub along with the three bonus months, which makes it $40 for 15 months at that point.

Can I activate my PS+ through my Vita and still have it apply to my PS3? My PS3 won't update the store (gets a percentage done, goes from 5 seconds left and keeps counting up, then disconnects me. It happens all the time, but only at my house. Worked fine at college on a wireless network. Not sure how to fix it, but whatever. I have tried wired and wireless connections, no problems with any of my other devices and I've never done anything funny with my PS3. It's the MGS4 bundle version), but my Vita works perfectly and it's the same email address/PSN account.

EDIT: I already bought a PSN 1 year card.

You could just do it with the web store link in the OP if you want and get all of the content there, as well. Then you should just be able to bring up the download list under Account Management and download them without going into the PS Store.

Okay, I might give that a shot then. Need to back up my Vita data so I can transfer memory cards before activating though. I think I can do that on my PC as well though. Thanks!

I have tried many times simply resetting both. Same thing happens. Then the PS3 disconnects and no other devices in the house (laptops, Kindles, 360, etc) are unable to locate the internet until I reset the modem and router again.

This would also qualify for the "Get $10 back" after spending $50 right? That makes it an even better deal

Yes, the consensus seems to be that if you use psn prepaid cards to add funds to your wallet and then buy the PS+ subscription you'll get the $10 back BUT if you just buy the 1 year PS+ prepaid cards you won't get the $10 back because you're just redeeming the subscription and not actually spending $50 out of your PSN wallet.

I saw an official post on the PSN blog saying $49.99 counted as $50 (for the offer).

Just got my PS+ 12+3-month renewal from the store using $50 in wallet funds.

FYI: if you plan on doing this and haven't yet, the PlayStation Store is gonna be down while PSN is undergoing maintenance tomorrow (Monday 03-04-2013) from 5AM-7PM PST (source here), so you may want to jump on this before the downtime hits. Otherwise you'd only have about a half a day worth of time until the store updates at some point on Tuesday 03-05-2013 so that you still qualify for the 3-month promo.

Just read through the thread and noone seems to have answered this yet after someone asked earlier.

Can you get 3 free months more than once?? Buy 2 separate 1 yr subs and get 15 + 15 months, or is it limit 1 free 3months per account?
