Yeah, when BF will be almost over.

I'll be happy to see a Black Friday sale any day of the week.

Read the response to comment #3.

Well it better be something, Its extremely vague and not a mention of a "black friday sale" officially... but Gimmie something to spend my 20 bucks on that I could have used to get a PS Plus Sub elsewhere...

You're right. Perhaps I was reading a bit too much into his comment. Re-reading it now he could just be referring to the "PS+ for $30" promotion. We'll have to wait and see.

PSN is getting slammed. I've been trying to redeem my Amazon code for five minutes and it keeps coming back with error. It identified the code properly, but is having problems adding it to my account. Tried it on the store and under account management...website won't do it cause it's not a game code.

 

10AM Update: Looks like they finally took the store down for maintenance. =/ This must be a real popular promotion, you think. Lol.

Comment 1 states there will be sales on PSN.  There is a picture saying here would be sales up to 65% off here, with a link to the store.  http://us.playstatio...ck-friday-2013/

 

Eh who cares when they update it, as long as they do.  Quit complaining, go eat some leftovers, and come back in a few hours or so.

The PS4 came out in Europe today, that might be why PSN is down.

I got sick of waiting to see what happens. Went with Amazon. Looking forward to see what sales they have though.

To be fair, this is Sony and PSN we are talking about trying to run a timed sale. Every hour counts in that sense. :booty:

This. I bought my year of PS+ through Amazon (cause somehow my $5 credit from buying The Last of Us Season Pass applied, and they were running a $5 Amazon Insta-Video credit promo with purchase) for $25, but ever since then, PSN has hung up on me for the first time unexpectedly. They took the store down as of 10AM EST. =/ Sucks cause I punched the code in, it was ID'd as 1 Year of PS+, but when I went to redeem it, it kept continuing and continuing until I got errors. I freaked out for a moment but when I tried it through the store and on Account Management, it was doing the same. =/ Well played, Sony...well played.

I'm guessing they will do it tonight once it's late night in Europe.

Can you grab this promotion via PSN on your PS3 or Vita?

Well, assuming it ever goes live that is.

The deal is already live, but not through PSN (especially since it's basically down atm).

 

You can pick it up on Amazon currently, but you won't be able to redeem it until PSN goes back up, and other places like BB, GS, etc. have them too, so lots of options.

I know about the other places, but I'm looking to get it from Sony so I can apply for that spend $60 on PSN get $10 credit promotion they are offering.

Yeah, I was trying to figure out a way for that too, but it was a no go on their site, or through PSN.

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.

Though if you go that route, you can't save the code and then enter it the next time they have their "+3 months of PS+" bonus.

Is that a common promotion though? Three months of additional PSN+ for free is greater than $10 for sure but who knows if Sony will do that again.

Sony just updated PS Blog about the BF deals and no mention of PS+ being on sale in PS Store.

 

http://blog.us.plays...ta-and-ps-plus/

 

Just my two cents, don't wait anymore and go get it on Amazon.

I was also looking to do the Buy $60 get $10 back, but did not want to risk losing the deal.

 

Purchased it through Amazon.  Holding onto the code for now, in case there is another +3 mo deal.

 

With this year, I am currently paid up on PS Plus until the end of 2017.

We need official clarification from Sony. Their own website (linked in the op) strongly suggests that a $30 SEN sale is imminent. We should contact them.

Yeah if I can't apply my previous PSN credits towards the Plus deal via the store then I'm just not gonna buy it at all. (could just buy more games instead)

The Black Friday Flash sale is now live on the SEN store, so I'm gonna assume that the PS Plus deal isn't coming.

Sorry we weren’t clear guys! We’ll be sure to be more specific next time. For now this deal is not available on the PlayStation store but you can purchase online through Amazon, GameStop and Best Buy. Or if you are out shopping you can pick it up in stores at Best Buy, GameStop, Amazon, and Wal-Mart, among others.

Well, that sucks.

I decided to purchase a code on Amazon and I get an error when trying to redeem through the PSN. Has anyone else had this problem?

 

Edit: when trying to redeem on my ps4 it kicks me back to the main dashboard and when trying to redeem on my vita i get an error there too.
