The PlayStation End of Year sale has begun in the UK and you’re probably already making a wishlist of which discounted titles and bargains you’re going to pick up in the PSN store later. But wait! Before you do anything, there’s a really easy way to make your money go just that little bit further – with these PSN wallet top-ups from CD Keys.
If you’ve never used CD Keys before, it really is deceptively simple: you can buy a PSN top-up (say £50), get the code emailed to you immediately, and get a few quid off in the process. But that still gives you £50 to spend in the PSN Store It’s perfect for a present for a loved one, too, and you’re guaranteed to save money versus if you went to buy the same gift card at a high street retailer.
So if you were planning to fill your boots with all the Cyber Monday deals on offer on the PSN store, it pays to top up beforehand – and that means you’ll probably always have a few pennies and pounds leftover for the next inevitable sale too.
The End of Year sale is just ridiculous too. Even a £20 top-up would go a long, long way. You could pick up Dishonored 2 (£4.79), Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (£7.99), Tomb Raider (£2.39) on the PlayStation store – and still have money leftover in your PSN wallet for a Resident Evil Remake & Resident Evil 0 double pack (£3.99).
That £20 top-up at CD Keys is actually £17.99. We’d actually recommend buying two of them instead of the £40 top-up as it works out cheaper.
So: buy 2 x £20 top-ups for £35.98 and that incredible shopping list we’ve just mentioned above effectively throws in the Resi double pack for free. No more one-to-one £40 = £40 top-up for you. It really feels like a no-brainer if you were planning on spending money on digital games over the holidays.
