1 Year of Playstation Plus $39.99/£25.23 @ Amazon.com (Instant delivery digital code)

Found 12th Jun 2014
Normally $49.99

The process is very simple, me and many others have bought digital PS Store things from Amazon with no problem.

US Plus cannot be used on a UK account to get free games/discounts from the UK region but you can get the free games from the US Store aswell as play online multiplayer on your UK account by having Plus on another on the same console.

First if you already have a UK Amazon account they'll prompt you to select a US address. Can be anything but make it a Delaware address because they have no taxes on digital sales. (Naughty I know but with Amazon,Apple et al doing the same who can argue against doing it?)

You can then use your UK debit card to checkout as normal and the code will be sent via email as soon as it goes through. Because it is a US transaction Amazon US do state that they can hold the transaction for a few hours to make sure its not fraud. Normally it takes roughly 4 hours for everything to process and I've never had a problem.

Then redeem the code on your US PSN account (If you don't have one it take about 5 minutes to make, you just need to use a US address). After that you're good to go.

This process is not limited to just Plus. Amazon US always have deals on full PS games ( I bought digital AC4 for £25 on PS4 this way) so anything that states it is a digital code you can buy and redeem on a US PSN account on your console. Once its redeemed and downloaded you can play the game on any account on that console. So you won't have to start a new trophy list.

Nice tip

Good price and tip, hot.

That be very smart thinking OP .. hot for that very informative description alone, lol. :-)

Just to clarify if I was to buy this I would have two ps+ on the go a US and my UK one? As opposed to topping up my current UK account?

Yea that's right

HT UK

Yea that's right



Thanks for the clarification

Can you still access games obtained through uk ps plus when it expires or do you need to top up both?

It seems that a lot of the time the US actually gets a worse selection of games for the PS+ IGC than Europe does. If you already have a UK PS+ account I'm not sure it'd be worth it to be honest. Heat for otherwise though.

Nah they're separate accounts so you'd have to top up both.

afaik...US / R1 psn+ free games as good as UK/R2 games

Too confusing lol can't be bothered to stress my brain. Good price though, I need to purchase one but ill get it from Cd keys for £8 more. Thanks though.

I have certainly noticed this over the past near two years as a subscriber.

that is a pretty nifty thing to do.

The handiest tip here is using a Delaware Zip Code to avoid sales tax on digital purchases, I have never purchased digital content via Amazon, so was even unaware that it was taxed in the US, will remember that, thanks OP.

So you're basically saying you're an idiot and you're not interested in the deal?!

Hot.

Never knew I could get PS Plus on my US account and it'd would give my UK account Plus too.

Sometimes they are, but certainly not always. Take this month for example:

In North America, the June lineup is PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate (PS4), Trine 2: Complete Story (PS4), NBA 2K14 (PS3), Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (PS3 / PS Vita), Terraria (PS Vita), and Mutant Mudds Deluxe (PS Vita / PS3).

For Europe, it's PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate (PS4), Trine 2: The Complete Story (PS4), NBA 2K14 (PS3), Lone Survivor (PS3 / PS Vita), Dragon's Crown (PS Vita), and Surge Deluxe (PS Vita).

Nice explanation ... heat added

Just a few questions

1. Is it best to set up a completely new USA account on Amazon or just have an address stored in the USA?


2. Can you create a USA Psn online without problems if location?

3. So basically you download and install onto your ps4 using the us account then login with uk and you can still play?


4. Anyone experienced problems from sony doing this like blocked accounts?


Thanks

Tbh mate, its a bit of faffing about, but you still need to keep both ps+'s topped up if you want to download uk ps+ stuff. Also once your uk ps+ sub runs out, the games will be locked then.

So you saying its better to spend twice on sub's?

No need to insult him.

Every US PS4 deal gets voted cold yet US PS+ gets voted hot oO

By the way it is a great deal and one i would be using. Also voted hot. Just surprised it got heat from the usually rabid anti US PSN crowd

1/ I just added a US address when they asked me to. If you want everything to be separate you can easily make a Completely new account.

2/ Yes it's extremely easy to make a US account. Again all you need is a US address and you're good to go. Same with any region like Jap. It's a very common practise to have multiple region accounts to get access to demos/games not available on your home regions store.

3/ Yep any account on that console can play that game and even earn separate trophies with no issues.

4/ Never. This is not illegal or even immoral. Sony allow accounts to enjoy the benefits of another having ps plus. All you are doing is buying a subscription for your US account. Just so happens you're not in the US

If you have never had ps+ then this is an okay deal. (as long as nothing changes and you can keep buying US ps+ to keep playing and getting the ps+ games) but if you have had UK ps+ then you're better off sticking with it. my opinion

Lol I know what you mean. Might be worth doing to get a cheap game in the future, but for ps plus I would just stick to a uk one for 8 quid more.

Great deal, although not ideal for people like me who still have a backlog on ps plus. Heat added!

Is this what my hubby needs to be able to play GTA5 online with his friends? Thanks x

Tempted to go for this since the US PS+ sales are usually much better than the ones for EU

Possibly but I'm not sure what the benefits are of having to maintain two subscriptions (twice the price) and is it worth paying double for that little bit extra.

On ps3? No, that's free. On ps4? Yes, but the game isnt out on ps4 yet.

Something to be aware of is that you won't be able to play your UK account online without a UK PS+ account.

Yes you can. If one account has Plus on your console you can play online multiplayer on any account on that console.

No Sony made a concious decision to allow Plus benefits to be shared across accounts on a console. Making people buy a separate subscription just to play online on a different account would've started a war.

I disagree:

"[C]an't be bothered to stress my brain."

If it's not for him, fair enough, but an attitude of voluntary stupidity is nothing to be proud of and doesn't serve anyone to hear about it.
