Gift cards for both PS Plus and Game Pass can be had at a discount for Cyber Monday, but most will only last 24 hours.
Today is many retailers’ final day for their Black Friday sales, which means you’ve only got a few hours left to snap up any remaining video game related deals.
We’ve already given a run down of all the best video game, console, and controller discounts for Cyber Monday, but there are some last minute savings you can get on PlayStation Plus and Xbox Game Pass subscriptions.
Sony still has its 25% discount on PS Plus subscriptions, but Amazon is selling gift cards that are ever so slightly cheaper.
There’s a gift card for each of the three tiers – Essential, Extra, and Premium – so you’ll want to make sure you use them to buy your subscription before the end of the day.
As a reminder, Essential nets you online multiplayer and free monthly games, Extra adds a catalogue of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 games, and Premium adds retro games from older PlayStation consoles.
- PS Plus Essential for 12 months – £36.10 (normally £49.99)
- PS Plus Extra for 12 months – £59.85 (normally £83.99)
- PS Plus Premium for 12 months – £71.25 (normally £99.99)
ShopTo also has a bunch of PS Plus gift cards on sale, but these aren’t PS Plus specific as they add store credit that can be used for buying digital games.
Regardless, you’re still saving money with these. For example, the £35 gift card currently costs £30.85. So even though you’re paying less, you’re still getting £35 worth of store credit to spend on the PlayStation Store.
You can find the full list of gift cards via this link.
As for Game Pass, surprisingly Microsoft hasn’t provided any sort of official offer for its key subscription service.
You can get your first month of Xbox Game Pass on PC or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for only £1 via Microsoft’s website, but that deal is always available and isn’t unique to Black Friday or Cyber Monday.
However, VG247 is selling discounted multipack Game Pass gift cards via its store.
Rather than a single 12-month subscription, you’re buying a pack of four gift cards for three months each, and by using the discount code BLACKFRIDAY at checkout, you’ll get 10% off.
- Xbox Game Pass for console (4x three months) – £86.29 (normally £95.88)
- Xbox Game Pass for PC (4x three months) – £86.36 (normally £95.96)
- Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (4x three months) – £118.76 (normally £131.96)
If you’d rather get one gift card, VG247 also has a single 6-month subscription for £47.99. With the Black Friday code, it goes down to £43.19.
