If you own a PS4, then getting a subscription to PS Plus is essential. Not only does it let you play games online, but you also get free cloud storage and, oh yeah, a bunch of quality free PS Plus games every month. So, if you can find a cheap PS Plus code deal, it's well worth it. Even if you're already subscribed and aren't due to renew for a while, any code you add to your account automatically stacks on top of what you own. Put another way, if you already have 12 months of PS Plus on your account, and you buy a code for 3 months, you've now got 15 months of PS Plus. Simple.
But how do you find a good deal on a PS Plus code? Getting one cheap isn't easy, so you need to know where to look. Around Black Friday, retailers usually offer deals on PS Plus subscriptions, either discounting their codes, or bundling them in with something else. If you're looking to snag a PS4 Pro deal, to upgrade your PS4 set-up, you can usually get at least 3 months of PS Plus thrown in for free. As well as discounts, retailers will also do offers like 'Buy 3 months, get 3 months free' or '15 months for the price of 12 months', so watch out for these. PS Plus codes aren't the most exciting purchase, but they're essential for PS4, so why pay full price when you can stock up for the year ahead? You'll find the best current deals below. If you're in the market for more PlayStation goodies in the run up to Christmas, check out our Black Friday game deals hub, and our guide to the Black Friday PS4 deals.
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.

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.
