Year of Playstation Plus discounted to $40

XMNR: If you have been looking for a way to get in on the benefits of Playstation Plus, such as free games for the PS3 and PS Vita and online multiplayer for the upcoming PS4, Rakuten.com (formerly Buy.com) may have the offer for you this week. (PS Vita, PS3, PS4)

Update Unfortunately, it was learned that the coupon code is only good once per order. Worse, the "AUTUMN10" promo code does not work with video game items such as the PS Plus subscription. The article has been updated to reflect that.

Offtopic but I don't understand how can they change buy.com name to Rakuten.com

I mean, yeah, I know the group bought buy.com but don't you think having a simple name was buy.com was better than rakuten.com or perhaps, they could have come up with a whole new name which was much simpler and made more sense than rakuten?

wait..does PS+ flow over from the PS3 to the PS4?.
Sono421  +   547d ago
Yes.

Nice now where is my PS4
Crazyglues  +   547d ago
Yeah good deal, but I already got 5 years for free...

-so I'm good.

and before you ask I did the credit card deal- that was going around- offering a free 12 months of PSN and 50 buck PSN credit

How?
Crazyglues  +   547d ago
you apply for the card you get the card, then you make one purchase could be for as little as a dollar.. then you get your free 12 months of PSN and a 50 dollar PSN credit in an email, as a code to add to your playstation acct.

So I used the 50 buck credit to buy another year.. -but you can use it on games or whatever you want on the PSN store..

then got my girl to sign up for one.. did the same thing again...

and then got my aunt to apply... so I got 5 years - and with the last 50 buck credit I used on a game -BF4 PS3 copy, and when I get my free 10 bucks for spending 50 bucks in the PSN store in oct.. the deal they got going right now, I'll use that 10.00 bucks to upgrade to BF4 for PS4 for free....

Best time ever to be a PLayStation Gamer..
MazzingerZ  +   547d ago
Getting stuff via credit card is more expensive in the long term...you mean all of them got credit cards? Just because you didn't post a link otherwise I would've thought this was scam lol

The yearly offers that come out for PS+ are enough for me as soon as something good shows up during the second half of my membership, I just renew it
Crazyglues  +   547d ago
@ MazzingerZ

yeah they all got cards, every person gets that on sign-up - because it's just a code they give you, code can be used on any PlayStation acct.

-and yes I didn't post the link because i didn't want to seem like i'm spamming or promoting the Playstation credit card. -(I'll PM you the link if you want it)

-and no, it's like any other credit card, there is no annual fee and as long as you pay for what you buy your fine... so no long term expense..

I need wait until November to renew my PS+ account :-D
Crazyglues  +   547d ago
Actually you don't have to wait until it expires to renew, whatever time you buy will just be added to the time you have...

so if you expire 11-12-13 then when you buy new time -like a one year- it's just added - so your new time would be 11-12-14

so your not losing time - the new time is just added on to whenever your old time expires.

Ill buy 2 years if its only 70
Grave  +   547d ago
No kidding considering every month you get way more than $70 worth of freebies. PS Plus to me is still an unreal deal and I don't really know how Sony pulls it off.
DA_SHREDDER  +   547d ago
people just now figuring that out?
nunley33  +   547d ago
volume is how and it gets games good promotion to people without plus too. the pay these devs get for putting their game in the igc some have commented saying they're satisfied with it. it's an overall package,not just money for them. but it's a genius thing that no one can compete with.
Lubu  +   547d ago
The seller has them for $45. There is a coupon that is applied that takes $5 off. But its only good towards 1. If you buy 2 of them, one will be $40 and the other will be $45. Also, the $10 off $50 promo code he's talking about IS NOT valid on these. It is only valid on a few categories. Really wish he would have done his research before posting this.
Ketzicorn  +   547d ago
Is this website any good?
deep_fried_bum_cake  +   547d ago
Yes.
Deividas  +   547d ago
yes, very good. I buy stuff off here all the time. Used to be named Buy.com. Well Known
Queasy  +   547d ago
Rakuten.com? Yes. They were Buy.com before their new parent company changed the name. Shipping is a little slow but I've never had any problems with them.
Ketzicorn  +   547d ago
Where do you enter the 10 off code because I'm trying to buy 2 and pay with PayPal and it keeps trying to charge me $85.
Queasy  +   547d ago
N/M. The AUTUMN10 code doesn't work with the PS Plus card.

Thanks yeah I found that but it says the AUTUMN10 code is invalid anyone get it to work?
0ut1awed  +   547d ago
This was added to the end of the article and probably needs to be added to the above post here too...

Dat value.
TechMech  +   547d ago
PlayStation plus seems awesome. I'm getting an Xbox one, but it shows you Sonys mindset towards gamers when they give out free games, even if you need an account to play them.
Stevino123  +   547d ago
Xbox Done.
rambi80  +   547d ago
Behave.

No need to fight, MS basically committed seppuku this gen.
Stevino123  +   547d ago
Amen. Trying to not be biased, but PS4 clearly has a win for launch. But, Microsoft could pull out something at anytime.
KwietStorm  +   547d ago
You're trying to not be biased by saying Xbox done, in an article about discounted PS Plus subscriptions. Ok.
Sleepless  +   547d ago
Xbox Live is 36eur/year ever since Xbox360 launch....you just have to buy it on the internet
Stevino123  +   547d ago
Kwiet it's a clear victory.
FunAndGun  +   547d ago
I believe there is a promotion in the PSN store.

Spend $50, get $10 back.

So you can get a year of Plus directly from Sony for only $40...and then have $10 in your PSN wallet.
rambi80  +   547d ago
Up to a maximum of $100. So dont get too carried away

yeah, so I guess stacking 5 years is out of the question. haha
Saladin416  +   547d ago
would this work in CANADA? thanks
nosferatuzodd  +   547d ago
this is very nice Sony just keep rolling like a cool kid from school that everybody liked
Jam70  +   547d ago
I guess its cool to pay to play online now that sony is doing it!
FunAndGun  +   547d ago
definitely NOT cool, but since people supported it during this whole gen with the 360, that made precedent and we are stuck with it.

Also, I would be a Plus member anyway if it wasn't pay to play because you actually get value for your $50. I have had a Plus membership from the beginning.
Goro  +   547d ago
It's $40 on PSN now too, they have a promo, get $10 back for $50 spent ($49.99 is ok too)
SevenSwords485  +   547d ago
PS Plus just keeps getting better
corvusmd  +   547d ago
That's how much it should cost
DivineAssault  +   547d ago
i might stack a few.. Time to call some family members & transfer funds to them to get in on this
Jovanian  +   547d ago
Paying for online multiplayer is still playing for online multiplayer; a scam, just like XBL

They just shoe-horned it into PS+ thinking nobody would notice because of their victory at E3 against microsoft, and they were right. Suckers are lining up paying for this scam. There was no justification given for adding it to PS+ other than 'hehe time to get some more money'
GoldenRimz  +   547d ago
Yeaahh, I'll just save up for the PS4. Lmao.
MAULxx  +   547d ago
I never play online multiplayer & I got plus 4 months ago.
I play some of the PS3 & PSP games they add. I'd say it's probably worth it if you play a lot of the games added to plus. They do need to add new avatars & themes once in awhile.
If you don't buy many games per year & you will play the plus games then it's definitely worth it, especially at $40.
If you buy a lot of games each year & only play single player, you really don't need to get it. You'll probably already have a lot of the games they'll add to plus & you'll most likely have your own backlog anyway.
