But deals on PS Plus can be slippery ones to nail down, so it’s best to know who are the go-to vendors and the kind of offers that might be out there in the wild. It’s possible to find PS4 Pro deals that include a free subscription period but this is by no means a regular add-on, and there may be extra month offers on the longer subscriptions which are always a winner. A mundane purchase yet essential to put the polish on the most rounded and complete PS4 experience, grab one of these PS Plus deals to stock up without hitting the wallet too hard.
Best PS Plus code deals - 12 month subscriptions
The most cost-efficient way to buy a new PS Plus membership is to get a 12 month subscription. It's cheaper than buying several 3 month codes, and you don't have to worry about it running out for a whole year. Retailers tend to discount 12 month codes more often, so you can get the biggest savings on the normal prices too. Once you've bought a 12 month subscription all you need to do is get the code - either on the card you receive, or the email from the retailer - and enter it in the 'Redeem Codes' section at the bottom of the main menu in the PlayStation Store. You'll find that on the far left of your PS4's menu. Once you've added the 12 digit code, the membership will be automatically applied to your account - very simple.

Best PS Plus code deals - 3 month subscriptions
So you're wary of a full subscription and just want to try Sony's online service for a few months? That's cool. Just grab a 3 month subscription and you can decide whether or not to top-up later. Don't forget that if you go for a 3 month and decide that you want the full 12 month sub straight away, you can buy a 12 month subscription and it'll automatically add to your 3 months. So, in essence, you'll have 15 months of PS Plus all paid for! Ideal for snapping up all those upcoming PS4 games.
