PlayStation Plus membership $29.99 direct from Sony

playstation plus

Posted 29 November 2013 - 09:50 AM

got one from gamestop with out tax. probably b/c i chose the digital download instead.  

 

Also, sony seems to have alot of networking issues right now, particularly PSN.  had problem signing on and the code won't redeem until the 20th tried (stretching it a bit, but was a lot of time).

I am tempted to get another membership but I am already good until sep 2015. I could be dead or blind by then.

I can not even tell after adding the code if it extended my plus. They should have a better tracking of this on the playstation. I can see what day it ends. But I did not look at it before adding it. 

Go to one of your games you've downloaded for free from Plus.. hit triangle.. go to information and scroll down .. it'll tell you when your subscription ends

Amazon gives you $5 in Amazon instant video credit for each $29.99 card you buy so I think I'm going to go this route rather than wait for Sony to fix their mess and miss out

I would go with Amazon, but the problem is I want to order from the PS Store to count torwards that "Buy $60, get $10 back" promo.

I'm already subbed up until late 2015 anyway, lol. So it wouldn't too big of a loss.

 

Besides, chances are pretty damn good that we'll see similar PS+ sales on next year's Black Friday. And the year after that, and the year after that...

Good til nov 2015 currently, but i'd definitely buy 1 or 2 more through the ps online store, since my credit on there was of course purchased at a discount.

How many can you purchase from Sony? I read two per purchase so I was hoping to make a two purchases for a total of 4 cards. I have an AMEX rewards offer that if I buy $100 from Sony I get $25 back. :whee:

A lot can happen in 2 years.  I wanted to pick up more too but I thought 2 years was sufficient.  My concerns were them possibly trimming or even ending the instant game collection and free game offerings or just generally slacking on the benefits if they've already got everybody locked in for the next 5-10 years after today.

Sorry everyone who is waiting on this. I would just get it from Amazon; I have no idea why it's not live by now.

 

Personally I got one code from gamestop last night before going to bed, and just now another one from Amazon. I'm all set.

Hmm, looking over the ad... are we sure this is for the PSN store? i mean really? They could just be a passing advertisment for retailers that have the 29.99 price (and thats mostly everywhere), because theres a picture of a physical card on the left. Just because they have a "buy now" button doesn't mean much does it? it could be there for people who don't want the inconvenience of going out to get a card. Im just being skeptical here, because I feel like this should have been live by now, really.

I can't give in.  Between the $10 back promo and the money that's already sitting in my PSN wallet, this is way more attractive than buying somewhere else.

And I refuse to believe I'm being trolled over the same item twice in one day.

 

EDIT:  The "While supplies last" is really starting to taunt me now though.  I'm starting to come around to the idea that this is referring to the physical product in stores.  Fuck.

With the "Buy Now" button right there? It better not be. They'd have a lot of 'splaining to do.

I know, right?  I think I'm just starting to get delirious.  Plus, there's other deals that they have going on today that haven't posted yet either.

Yup, exactly what i was thinking. The Buy Now button could just be there to be there. What reason does it have to not be there? People could "buy now" for 49.99 if they are thinking to avoid crowds, or trick themselves into thinking its a good idea.

 

Im thinking I added 20 dollars to my PSN wallet for absolutely nothing....

"PS Plus

There will also be a special Black Friday deal for PlayStation Plus at select retailers nationwide. Pick up 1 year of PS Plus for only $29.99* — that’s 40% off the regular price of $49.99. With PS Plus, you’ll get new games every month with Instant Game Collection. You’ll also get access to online multiplayer on the PS4 system. Best of all, one membership will cover you across your PS4, PS3, and PS Vita… for just $29.99* on Black Friday only.

*Limit 2 per person, per purchase. Offer valid 11/29/13 only, while supplies last."

 

from PSblog.

 

That "buy now" button is probably always there.

Living in Indonesia, I hope Sony doesn't track my IP because I really want to buy 2 years of PS Plus. The exchange rate from USD to Rupiah is currently the highest in last four years.

The PS Blog mentioned that they'd have a complete Black Friday sale, and not just discounts on PS+ memberships. So far it doesn't look like any sales have gone live. Sony's servers are probably buckling under the increased traffic from Black Friday and the European launch right now. It may take them a while before they're able to get things under control and get to the point where they're able to start the sale. Don't give up hope yet. :)
