PlayStation Plus Subscribers: Renew For a Year and Get $10 PSN Cash

Get a $10 PSN credit when you extend you PS Plus membership for another year. (PS Vita, PS3, PS4, PSP, Sony)

Curious to know which PSN. EU or NA?
sinncross  +   341d ago
Well the article says $ so I am going to assume they mean USA.
ZodTheRipper  +   341d ago
As far as I remember, a similar promotion runs in the German store right now so I'm guessing it's for EU too.

This stuff always starts when I just renewed my subscription ... :S
KrisButtar  +   341d ago
I've seen EU promotions on sites that use the dollar sign, I didn't want to assume.
sckipt  +   341d ago
(for some reason i cant comment on besides this)

They are giving us 10$ for getting ps+ year worth and just getting ps+ is a huge steal.
guitarded77  +   341d ago
It has the offer on the front page of the us.playstation.com site, so I know it's good for US. Personally, I'd prefer $10 off a year of PS+, but I'm gonna take up the offer anyway. Mine runs out in December, and that will not sit well with my PS4.
inveni0  +   340d ago
I'm good on PS+ for two more years. Not sure I want to extend to three years just yet. I want to wait and see what the Gaikai setup will be like. I'd rather use the money for a third year of PS+ for the Gaikai add-on, if one is needed.
darthv72  +   340d ago
mine doesnt expire until May of 2014. will this promo last until then?
ftwrthtx  +   341d ago
The originating email was sent to a US account, but as someone else said, some Eu accounts are getting a similar deal.

Renewed in June...dang nabbit.
Blank  +   341d ago
The subscription stacks i got like 2 1/2 years from taking certain promos like this one.
ziggurcat  +   341d ago
you could always pay for another year to extend your subscription, and get the $10 credit.
admiralvic  +   341d ago
How is this news? This is LITERALLY (even if it was via an email) nothing more than Sony or Terminal Gamer pointing out the $10 dollars for every $50 spent promo ( http://blog.us.playstation.... ).

Sony has confirmed in the past that they round up for PlayStation Plus (they actually said a "few" cents won't matter), so that is the $50 and naturally that gives you $10 dollars back. This offer must be done via SEN cash, which is another requirement of that promo. It lasts till October 29th, which is also when that promo ends...

This is a new email promo being sent out by Sony to current PS+ subscribers and therefore is news.
admiralvic  +   341d ago
I don't see how it being a new email makes it news. You're still in essence doing nothing more than pointing out this promo. Even the promo itself says the following

"With these savings, there’s no better time to become a PlayStation Plus member. Pick up a 1-year membership for $49.99, get $10 back and take advantage of all the great features you get with PS Plus, including Instant Game Collection access and exclusive discounts."

Is this not exactly what your post is saying? Sure it doesn't mention current subscribers, but it's not like "Get $10 for Every $50 Spent" leaves a lot of room for interpretation.
ftwrthtx  +   341d ago
This is Sony trying to get people to renew PS+ (it stacks), or in the case of StockpileTom below, to come back.

It is a new campaign by them to try to get more people to spend money and therefore is new news.
admiralvic  +   341d ago
Are you listening to my point AT ALL?

It's a simple rewording of the promo I linked you to. Literally everything about it syncs up.

That promo:

Get $10 for Every $50 Spent,

This promo:

Renew Plus ($49.99), get $10 dollars. As I already quoted, Plus is rounded up to $50.

That promo:

for every $50 you spend using your SEN Wallet, you’ll receive a $10 credit back.

This promo:

Must purchase 1 Year membership via SEN wallet.

That promo:

Ends 10/29/2013.

This promo:

Ends: 10/29/2013

That promo:

You’ll receive your earned credit by November 8th via email and XMB Message on your PS3.

This promo:

$10 bonus will be credited to your SEN Wallet by November 8, 2013.

What about the two are different besides Sony sending out an email referencing it?
StockpileTom  +   341d ago
The email I got didn't directly reference the other promotion therefore it is unclear if this is a separate promotion or not.

If it is they might stack to a $20 credit but I doubt that. I am not ruling out the possibility though until someone finds something stating otherwise. (not putting words into anyone's mouth or anything just stating)

I never said it was a new promotion, just a new campaign to get more people to renew or re-up.
BoriboyShoGUN  +   341d ago
Admirals right companies do it all the time, same offer just a different pitch is all. Where people might not spend 50 in games, but they'll do it for a renewal probaly just hadn't occured to them to do so.
rainslacker  +   341d ago
It's bad now for a website to point out a good deal? It's not the exact same promotion, it directly references PS+, and is advertised that way. Thus it isn't the same, even if it is the same promotion.

God, who criticizes a deal being reported regardless of system. We all like saving money.
StockpileTom  +   341d ago
I just got a similar email saying "Come back to PS Plus" so it appears to be sent to former subscribers as well.

I was holding out until I get my PS4 and this is likely an attempt to dissuade people from doing that, but it failed!

Good to know. You have a screen grab of an image to go with it? PM me if you do.
joe90  +   341d ago
LOL "Come back to PS Plus"

Like they miss you and NOT your money.

LOL WTF ftwrthtx you are asking for proof because it hurts your poor ANUS that some people don't have PS+ and YES that Email has been sent to mine after i refused to go along after my free trial. Yeh get PS+ for cheap because when the PS4 is out we are still going to spew out free last gen games....Please keep paying us for the massive loss we made on the PS£.

Peasants getting spammed by Sony to come and give them money.....Poor Sony not doing too well by the looks of things.

Yes, because no other company sends emails to promote deals. /s

Damn joe, you try too hard. give it up already.

Man you need that last bubble popped ;)

No need to offend the person you know...

FunAndGun  +   341d ago
even if its not, stack it up like cups!
arbitor365  +   341d ago
so PS plus is essentially $40 per year while xbox live is $60. why anyone would support microsoft just baffles me.
admiralvic  +   341d ago
To be fair, Xbox Live constantly goes on sale, so it's not that difficult to get a Xbox Live subscription for as much or less than Plus. Not saying I think one is better than the other, but they do go on sale a lot.
FunAndGun  +   341d ago
To be fair, Xbox Live gives you access to the other restricted half of your consoles features while Plus actually gives you value for your money in games.
patsrule316  +   341d ago
I have never paid $60 for xbox live. I have never paid $50 for Xbox live. I just paid $35 for a year of XB Live a month or two ago.

I bought a 15 month PS+ subscription back in March for my Vita (don't have a PS3) when they had the get $10 back deal like they are having now. They didn't send me my $10 back. When I complained to Playstation customer service, they said it was too late (mid April) and sorry, we can't help you.
patsrule316  +   340d ago
You can disagree all you want. Everything I said is a fact.
TechMech2  +   341d ago
Xbox live is faster, has party chat, doesn't shut done for maintaince, and it never got shut done after being hacked and had credit card numbers compromised, now did it.
arbitor365  +   341d ago
ive got over 1000$ in free content and discounts from playstation plus over the past 3 years. but being able to talk to other people during singleplayer games? thats sooo much better lol

no one's credit card information was ever compromised on PSN. all of that information is encrypted. hence why you didnt have people getting all their bank accounts emptied.

the fact that xbots still need to bring up an incident from 3 years ago just shows how they have no argument
TechMech2  +   340d ago
@arbitor
Psnetwork was terrible for me. I regretted my ps3 purchase as soon as I found out their was not party chat, and the online multiplayer was slow. I want a fast connection. I have a argument. You are a fanboy and lack the ability to see beyond the company you throw your money at
MasterCornholio  +   334d ago
You should stop being cheap and get yourself a proper internet connection which is what I did.

And yes Xbox Live was pretty horrible for me when I had that broken internet connection.

My wifi works great with Xbox live. I didn't even now playstation network was terrible until I got Xbox live.
Hicken  +   341d ago
Interestingly enough, I got the same email, and my Plus is paid up through September of 2015.

Even so, I'm tempted to take Sony up on this offer. At the same time, though, I could spend some funds elsewhere, like perhaps P4G, and still get the deal.

Or I could buy Plus again and still have the money to use towards some more games...

Decisions...
saint_seya  +   341d ago
thats so unfair, renewed for 2 years like a week ago :/
FunAndGun  +   341d ago
The spend $50 get $10 promotion started on September 24th and goes thru October 29th. If it was only a week ago you would qualify. Maybe you have $10 coming to ya in November. :)
admiralvic  +   341d ago
As FunAndGun pointed out, Sony is currently running a spend $50, get $10 dollar back promo. This post is simply Sony trying to sell that promotion to people who might not be aware of that promo or make them aware Plus counts. The only requirement (which is true for this one) is that you bought it with SEN / PSN cash. Buying a 12 month voucher form a store isn't eligible for either (as they're the same promo).
My_precious  +   341d ago
they also pay back 10$ for each 50$ you spent on PSN this month, does these two stack?
Heisenburger  +   341d ago
If you spent $100.
kingPoS  +   341d ago
So.... it's like a rebate than?
AceBlazer13  +   340d ago
got plus today in preparation for november i suddenly have more games than i know what to do with. gotta love plus
abusador  +   340d ago
Yeah man! I have a huge backlog bcus of plus which include awesome games I haven't even started like Hitman, Xcom, etc....

Ps4 is just going to make it harder to get back into my baglog., then Dark Souls 2 in Feb and I'm looking at no time for backlog.
Nabbic  +   340d ago
Give it to Europe, too.
That $10 could buy me the PS4 copy of Journey.
akaFullMetal  +   340d ago
I had to renew my psplus subscription on 9-30, but missed the deal when they were doing this last time by a day. Now they start up again, just 11 days later, damn missed opportunity.
