Video gaming is an expensive hobby, but it doesn’t have to be as costly as you think. We all love buying new games, but renewing Xbox Live and Playstation Plus subscriptions is never something that makes us giddy with excitement. Writes Frugal Daz
Heads up: this advertisement is disguised as an article.
The article gives information about a number of retailers that are in competition with each other- and how to save money with them. That's not an advertisement.
If they were our own products I could understand where you are coming from, but they aren't.
Maybe you could do mmo sub cards next and link to sites discounting them. I've only seen FFXIV cards for NA on amazon though.
It's pretty clearly not an advert.
How's it an advertisement?
Just buy your subscription from eBay. I get em for like $35 all the time. And they Emil code to you right away so no waiting.
What is the full price for 12 months Gold in the US?
The key is don't wait until the last min. When I find a cheap deal for a year or Someone runs a promotion then I'd buy it for about hlf or less the actual price. My subscriptions don't expire until mid 2015.
What is a Human?
The guy that wrote the article is so behind, been doing this for more than a year. My PSN+ subscription expires in 13 years xD (crap maybe I went overboard =/) 1/2 from what was mentioned on the article but managed to snag a few from HMV for cheap cuz they were going into admin =p
That was the point of writing it as there are still so many people that shell out full price or even worse pay the £5.99 per month to Microsoft.
@Frugal, Thanks for the write up. I wasn't aware of this and I'll definitently be purchasing my next PS+ from the link you provided. The person above you didn't have to be such a prick, just because he knows about it doesn't mean the entire human race does, so thank you for making me aware.
I've paid full the $50 for plus a few times since first having it over 3 years ago. But i did get an extra 3 months for doing that , if had seen it cheaper elsewhere i would've bought that. But i believe plus is worth the $50 so no complaints from me from doing that.
Yeah especially if sony goes broke in the next 12 years! Hell of an Investment! Look out Donald Trump there is a new player in town. Demonchicken! Or if they make online free again if xbox starts kickin their ass. I always wait until the last minute to renew xblive or ps+. especially with all the 7 day trial ones out there.
I done that with my Xbox 360, stacked up a few years worth then sold my 360 to get a PS4! Not the most "Frugal" move ever.
Did the same. I got plus for $30 no tax so I am good until 2018
Just bought the 12 month for 40 bucks on amazon couple days ago
Its a well written article suggesting that there are cheaper way to renew online subscription. Are the comments about eBay and Amazon advertising there sites ?
Love CDkeys if you like there facebook page you get a 5% voucher. Bought Battlefield 4 Premium from them for £35. Also PS+ for £27.
Get Steam instead.
I actually don't mind paying for Plus. I get way more than my money's worth in games and discounts. Already this year I've gotten more than $50 worth of great games, much more in fact. I do mind paying for Live though, I did for 5 years and feel it was a major waste of money. Now when I look at my 360 I actually feel bad, it's weird, like I was tricked and exploited.
Ya I'm in the same boat paid for live for years. Never again. I've got so much money back in discounts and free games on ps plus that I don't even see it as paying a fee. It's really like a special club. Plus I actually really like and played the free games as they are never old and usually nice pics such as games you wanted to play but passed on. I don't like that they keep giving away high profile games like tomb raider or bio shock infinite now because I've actually played those games already. Lucky we get a nice head start on what's coming next so I trade the hard copies in before stores adjust prices.
