If you’re thinking about purchasing a subscription to PlayStation Plus you might be wondering how exactly you get PlayStation Plus without a credit card?
This is a pretty fair question and in fact, is something I didn’t immediately know the answer to. With that in mind, I set about finding the answer to this question online.
It’s possible to get PlayStation Plus without a credit card by purchasing a PlayStation Plus gift card. You can buy one of these gift cards online or in a store and it will allow you to get PlayStation Plus for 1 month, 3 months, or 12 months.
Now that we’ve been able to answer the question of getting PlayStation Plus without a credit card, let’s look at the background of PlayStation Plus and other ways you can buy it.
What Is PlayStation Plus?
At this point, you might be wondering what exactly PlayStation Plus is and if it’s worth buying.
PlayStation Plus is a subscription service offered by PlayStation that allows online multiplayer access, free monthly games, 100GB of online storage, and exclusive discounts on the PlayStation store.
Let’s dig deeper into each of these benefits to understand how they work.
1 Online Multiplayer
Subscribing to PlayStation Plus allows you to play games online with friends.
Games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Red Dead Redemption 2 have online modes that require PlayStation Plus to make use of.
It’s worth mentioning that some games are free to play online without a PlayStation Plus subscription such as Apex Legends and Dauntless.
With that said, the heavy hitters in online multiplayer still require a PS Plus subscription.
2 Free Monthly Games
Each month, PlayStation Plus members can download a new set of free games from the PlayStation store.
These games vary wildly in genre and popularity but are generally very good and worth downloading.
Some previous games include Uncharted 4, BioShock: The Collection, and Borderlands: The Handsome collection.
3 100GB Online Storage
A great feature included in PS Plus is 100GB of online storage. This allows you to store your game saves to the cloud up to 100GB which is tons of room.
The advantage of this feature is it can save you precious space on your physical console’s hard drive which you can use to store even more games.
What’s more, you can access your cloud saves from any other PlayStation console (PS3, PS4). So if you’re at a friend’s house you can easily retrieve your save file and continue playing like you were at home.
4 Exclusive Discounts
If you enjoy scouring the PlayStation store for the best deals, you’re in luck. By subscribing to PlayStation Plus, you’ll receive additional discounts on a wide variety of games.
What’s more, you’ll receive an even further discount off of games that are already on sale, saving you quite a bit of money if you’re buying games online pretty regularly.
What Is The Price Of PlayStation Plus?
The price of a PlayStation Plus subscription varies based on the length of the subscription. You may also see the prices reduced during sales like Black Friday and around Easter time.
Below you’ll find a table that summarizes the cost of each PlayStation Plus subscription in 3 regions (as of the time of writing this article).
How Do I Get PlayStation Plus?
Now that we’ve looked at the background to PlayStation Plus as well as the cost, let’s look at the different ways you can get PlayStation Plus.
1 PlayStation Plus Gift Card
As we mentioned at the start of the article, the best way to get PlayStation Plus without a credit card is by purchasing a PlayStation Plus gift card.
You can buy these digitally online or in physical form in stores like Gamestop etc.
Once you’ve bought your PlayStation Plus gift card, simply enter the code into the PlayStation Store’s “Redeem Codes” section.
2 PlayStation Store Gift Card
In a similar way to the PlayStation Plus gift card, you can also purchase a PlayStation Store gift card.
This is more like a traditional gift card where you can purchase various amounts of credit including $20, $50, and $100.
You can use this gift card to buy anything on the PlayStation Store including a PlayStation Plus subscription.
To redeem a PlayStation Store gift card, simply navigate to the “Redeem Codes” section of the PlayStation Store website and enter the code on your gift card.
3 Purchase PlayStation Plus In The PlayStation Store
You can also buy a PlayStation Plus subscription straight from the PlayStation store as you would any digital game.
The requirement here is that you have a credit card or a PayPal account connected to your PlayStation card to purchase anything.
Simply select the PlayStation Plus subscription you wish to purchase, add it to your cart and check out.
Can You Get PlayStation Plus For Free?
If you’re still not convinced about the merits of PlayStation Plus it is possible to sign up for a free 30-day trial. You’ll only be able to do this once so make sure you have some time to explore things properly.
To see if you are eligible for a free trial, access the PlayStation Store and look at the PlayStation Plus section.
To sign up for the free trial it’s important to note that you’ll need to provide payment details.
Also worth noting is that at the end of your free trial if you do not unsubscribe, a monthly subscription will automatically start.
