[NA] [PS4] 1 Year PS+ Subscription $31.99USD ($50.39AUD) @ CD Keys

660

Just came across this deal on Reddit. This card is only for North American accounts.

These codes will stack, so you can buy multiple cards to last years.

This is quite a cheap price for a 1 year subscription to PS+. Many are saying this has been the cheapest price in a while.

Instructions on making a NA account can be found here: http://www.pushsquare.com/news/2018/12/guide_how_to_create_a...

Edit: Was previously $29.79USD. Now $31.99USD. Still a good price.

    Despite the American flag, this does indeed work for Canadian PSN accounts (as noted by OP) as well

    A couple of questions for someone who bought an XBone and PS4 due to isolation boredom like a month ago:

    1. Is there a history of Australia having PS Plus sales shortly after US ones, making this effort less worthwhile? (This does seem super cheap compared to Aus RRP, though)

    2. I already have an Australian account which dates back to the PS3. Do I just add the US account as a second account and everything works, or is there more to it to access my purchased games or do I have to make the US account primary?

    I can see heaps of guides that talk me through how to set up an account, but none that tell me what to do next.

      On the Xbox you can change the region/time zone/etc which allows you to take the device across borders (or just your account if you have a digital library).

      But you have to add a payment method in the other currency, which is where a lot of people get stuck.

      I managed to create US, Canadian, Argentine, etc PayPal accounts (lol the US account even keeps sending me offers for PayPal credit).

      Then I was able to add them to my Xbox account (when I go to manage my addresses there are several payment methods, and underneath it says "for purchases in XXX country".

      Once you have a payment method in another currency (and address) setup on your account, you're good to go.

      To cut a long story short, I don't think you can "merge" two Microsoft accounts, so creating an account for that region won't do what you want to do - you'd need to find a way to add a US (or another country's currency) to your existing account.

      Ps. Microsoft are increasingly making creating accounts and adding payment methods in other regions harder, so what worked for me may not work anymore for someone else.

      USA and Europe/Australian ps store sales have virtually no correlation on my experience of having both since 2014. I recommended usa account as the better option for sales.

        You're going to lose to the exchange rate.

        • +1 vote

          I buy my PSN credit on Amazon with 28deg card so you get the direct exchange rate, middlemen sellers charging commission on the codes run any benefit but Amazon doesn't do that.

      For the PS4 part:
      You cannot change regions of the SEN account, but you can have multiple accounts and use one as main to play your games. Every account can be primary in one system and the games of a primary account can be played by all users on that PS4.

      So, if you already have an Australian account and you add a USA account and set it as primary you will be able to play all the USA games with your Australian account. You only need to access the USA account to get in the store and initiate the download.

      On the same note, you could use your Australian account as primary on other PS4 (and users of that PS4 will be able to play all your games) and keep accessing your own PS4 as a secondary account. In that case, any user of your PS4 can play the USA games but only you logged into your Australian account would be able to play your Australian games. That's how the primary-secondary system works.

        If I am in Aus, can I purchase this NA subscription and be able to play online in Aus servers?

        what is the process to do this ?

        •  

          Yes, the server being used has nothing to do with the account. I have a USA account and I see the same players that an Australian account would see. Games are multi-region.

      If I understand it correctly you can, essentially this will also give my Australian Account on the same console PS Plus enabled for MP play

      Only if set up primary, this will work for online. It won't however give you ps+ sales on other accounts, or cloud sync.

          You get monthly games that you can play with any account on your PS.

          •  

            @Mistredo: Yeah, and to keep as long as you are a member. 24 games for $50 seems good value.

          •  

            @Mistredo: can i play online with an AUS account?

            •  

              @Small Nunu: Yes, as long as the US account is added only to your PS and not any other (primary console of the account).

            •  

              @Small Nunu: Yes. When you sign into the US account make your console the PS4 the primary one for that account and then you will be able to use PS+ on any other accounts on your ps4.

              If you give the password for it to your friend/family member they can sign in on their PS4 and play online using that account at the same time you're playing online but not on their old accounts as it won't be the primary ps4 for that account.

    • +1 vote

      Yes. You can also play any ps+ games redeemed on US account from AU account. There are 2 things to keep in mind.
      1 - PS+ game deals will be locked into US account and any DLCs will onl be available through US account. (You can play the games from AU account, but not the dlc redemptions).
      2 - Cloud sync is limited into US account.

      If you only care for MP and playing any ps+ games, then go for it. With PS+ you can also enable auto game updates on standby mode, which can be good for games like warfare where updates literally take hours…

      •  

        Your 1st point doesn't apply to PS4, I have an AU account on my PS4 but my main account is my US one and I play everything on that. I bought Spider-Man at retail and bought the DLC through my Australian account and can play the dlc content no problem on my US account.

        Just have to set the PS4 as the primary ps4 for whatever account you're buying your digital content on and then everyone else on that ps4 can access it.

        •  

          Hmm weird. Has not worked for me. I’ve bought games from other regions (us/uk) and the bonus contents are locked into respective accounts.

      They do stack. Unsure on how long you have. They're individual codes so I imagine you'd have at least a year to activate it.

    Expired or still available? How do I set up account? I don't have an Aus account either, but for $50 seems worth it to me!

          Hopefully someone else has experience and can answer that for you. I personally have only ever created accounts through the PS4.

          You can give it a go. Might be easier through the PS4 though.

    • +2 votes

      You can't use the PS+ Games you already own on your Aussie account, but I use my US account as my primary.

      You need to purchase PSN cards in US dollars if you want to access their sales. I haven't been able to use my debit card directly through PS Store on the US account.

      Sales are generally more frequent and cheaper on the US store.

      •  

        Thank you, great info. They are all not deal breakers for me. I mainly want it purely to play online. Being able to use my normal account for that is important and sounds like it's fine.

      •  

        Oh I just realised that means you probably can't play games downloaded on the US account on the aussie account (even if your US subscription hasn't expired)? Sorry didn't sink in at first. Not a huge issue but might wait for an aussie sale… Damn, spent 45 mins messing around making a US account. Oh well. Thanks anyway.

        You can't use the PS+ Games you already own on your Aussie account,

        That's not true, I claim all the PS+ freebies on my US account and play them on my Aussie account.

        • +1 vote

          Oh awesome, that's what I wanted to hear.

        •  

          Guessing you don't own any PS+ games on your Aussie account then, it's definitely true.

          Once your AU account PS+ sub ends all of the games from that account become locked. Activating PS+ on your US account doesn't re-activate the games from your AU account. They're still locked until you renew again.

          •  

            @Agret: I know, but Dan83 thought that if you claim it on the US account then you can't play on your Aussie profile even if the US sub hasn't expired.

            The games claimed on the US account don't get "added" to your Aussie account, but you can still play them as long as you still have your US sub going

        Yea, cheers LJ, but once I make the account, what do I do? I've had a read and come up to:
        How to Play US PSN Games on Your Usual PS4 Account
        As long as you've set your PS4 as your primary PS4 you can play every game you own from all of your PSN accounts tied to your PS4. In short, games you buy on your console will appear in the games list for all of your PSN accounts on the same system.
        Fingers crossed, here's hoping!

        • +3 votes

          Log into that account on your PS4. Go into the settings, then set that PS4 as your primary system - this will "authorise" that PS4 as your main one to Sony/Playstation.

          Then you apply the code you get from CD keys - I just did this for mine from my laptop, after logging in at my.playstation.com with my US account details. That will get you your 12 months on the Plus network.

          Then, from the console, next time you fire it up, go to the "plus" section and add this month's games to your library - and download them too, if you want to play them now. Once they're in your libarary though you can grab them and play them any time you have a current Plus subscription.

          Oh, you can also now buy games through the US Plus store, using your Sony/Playstation wallet. The easiest way to do that is to buy giftcards and apply them. I have had $0.06 credit for at least two years now though, and am a bit hazy on that side of things. I tend to buy physical media where I can or just play the "free" monthly games on Plus. Weirdly I find physical games to be cheaper, usually.

          Hope that's helpful.

          Edit to add: I also have a aussie account/profile on the PS4, but haven't subbed to the aussie Plus service. When I get an AU-region locked game I log into the PS4 using my AU account, install the game, then log back in with my normal account (US) to play it. I had issues with one of the Assassins Creed titles because I installed the game with/under my US profile, but found later the expansions were region locked to AU. So I had to (from memory; it was a while ago….) log into my AU profile, start the game, then in game apply the AU codes to get the game to enable the expansions. Once installed, I could play using either profile.

            @kale chips suck: I created a US account. How do I go back to my normal account once I've got the PSplus through the US account?

            •  

              @Dan83: I'm messing around with it and I presume each time you want to swap account you deactivate the PS4 and sign in to the other one? I presume this is needed for when you want to download the PSplus games for the month with the US account? Thanks

              •  

                @Dan83: I'll half answer my own question. The above doesn't work. After resetting my PS so it asks which account you want to use, now it's possible to swap accounts on startup. So I presume the US account always stays the primary PS4 account? Anyone able to confirm before I purchase? Thanks

                  @Dan83: Sorry, was AFK.

                  No need to deactivate anything from memory; just have both accounts. I have my US as my primary and only use the AU profile when I need to fix something that's region locked. Once I fix whatever it is, I just go back to using the US profile. It's been literally years since I set it up though.

                    @kale chips suck: Yeah it seems both accounts can nominate PS4 as primary. I now realise you can swap peerless readily without even turning off. Nice. Bought it and will renew after my one month runs out.

      Have you created a new US account? Follow instructions to log out of your current account and create new US account to add key in PS store with a US postcode & set as primary then you can log back in to your current account.

      That's correct buy key, wait until your current expires in Dec then add via PS store on your US account.
