Still don't know if I should order this. I have $11 in PSN, which I paid $8 for, and can get $40 for $25 with my $15 RZ. Meaning I would pay $33 for $50 in PSN to buy PS+. But $40 for PS+ with a remote still seems like a great deal. Anyone have any advice for me?

Your problem is you're looking at that $15 RZ as a discount instead of money you can spend on other things. If it were a $15 coupon only good for a PS+ card then you could compare it. Instead it's like have $15 in your wallet that you can only spend at BB.

Will you shop at BB again before it expires? If yes then you should probably save it. If no, then it's just going to be wasted so go ahead and use it.

Thanks for the response. I will buy something from BB, just don't know when and what for. I'll just probably jump on this deal, just so I can get 15 months. Makes me kinda with I didn't spend the $18 on a 3 month last month. But it's been worth it so far.

I had $15 in BB rewards too and ended up getting a nice $20 PSN card to jump on the FF discounted games. Highly recommend doing the same :D

Finally broke down and bit on this deal. Can't really beat 15 months for $39.99. Now I just need the price drop on the Vita Memory Card.

I would jump all over this if it were the official blu-ray remote for the Playstation 3 made by Sony, but I think I would rather just use my regular DS3 still. I am no doubt looking to pick up PS+ on the cheap again after getting it last year for for 1-year for 17.49 at Target, but I dunno about this deal.


Good luck trying to get it for 17.50 again, that was a total price mistake.

This is the best deal in a loooooong time, and will probably be the best deal for a long time.

15 months for $40 = $2.66 /month


You also must not appreciate all the games and discounts that come with it.

The satisfaction rate for ps+ users is like 99% with a margin of error of 1%.

NOBODY regrets getting it. NOBODY.


The only people that dont like it are the ones who have never used it.

Maybe you're mentioning when it was $14.39 at Target in November 2011?

Buy ps+ from this deal, and here is why:
When you use rz certificates, it actually lowers the TAXABLE amount (saves you $ on taxes) but using gift cards DOES NOT reduce your tax liability (tax is calculated on the total BEFORE the card is used, and then the giftcard subtracts from the total).

So a $50 item would cost $35 + tax if you used rz cert
A $50 item would cost (50 + tax) - 15 if you used $15 of bestbuy giftcards.


But tax IS NOT collected on the purchase of gift cards (including ps+ cards) so a $50 ps+ card will only cost $50.


So save your rz certificates for items that tax IS collected on (movies, games, music, almost everything.


Also, because bestbuy sells them for $50 and this site sells them for $40, you would be paying an additional $10 to get it from BB. Even though you would be using gift cards + rz certs, you still should think of those things as money.

If you had a choice between buying a pop for $1 cash, or a pop for $10 rz cert, you would choose to pay $1 cash because you would basically be throwing away a $10 cert even though with the cert you dont have to actually "pay" any money.

I bit.

Also poked around the website and now I'm curious about their "grab bag" deals. Anyone ever tried before? Looks like they just introduced it a week or two ago, but I dunno . . . out of a lot of 8 games, they're promising a maximum of 1 sports game and no duplicates. Surely, they're not going to be tossing a bunch of new releases in, but 3 good games would make it worth it.

I'm not a gambling man is the thing, and this is definitely a gamble. I can totally see it now: 8 games: NBA 2K7, Lair, Prince Caspian, Aragorn's Quest, Eyepet, Just Dance 2, Carnival Games, and then Enslaved which was great but I already have.

Dragons lair
GTA San Andres

This has probably been asked a thousand times already but does this stack with the 3 month bonus?

They sound cool, but like you said, could be complete garbage. Still, 8 games for $40=$5 a game is hard to beat (if you got one new gamer it would practically pay for itself)

I can't believe how many people are talking about the remote, as if it matters. $40 for 15 months of PS+, people! Throw the remote in the trash!

You will NOT get a new game from a grab bag deal, dude. It's gonna be a bunch of crap. There's a grab bag thread somewhere in the depths of CAG, check it out and watch as people despair over throwing away $40 to get old games they already have or never wanted. Just use your $40 to buy games you actually want. Just my two cents, man.
