Black Friday 2019 already has a ton of PS4 console deals going around, but if you’re in the market for Sony’s gaming system, PlayStation Plus is a must-have add-on. Plus lets you play multiplayer games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Destiny 2: Shadowkeep online, keeps all your saves in the cloud so you can access them anytime from any console, two free games each month for as long as you’re a member, and bonus deals on the Sony’s digital store all year round.
A yearly subscription to PS Plus usually costs $60, but Black Friday weekend and Cyber Monday will be the best times to shop for deals on PlayStation Plus. Last year, the service was discounted to $40 at numerous retailers, including GameStop, Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart. PlayStation also offered the $40 price on the PlayStation Store, so you could buy it straight from your console.
Ebay currently has 12-month subscription cards for $40. As they are physical cards, you’ll have to wait to redeem it until it arrives in the mail, but it comes with free shipping.
When it comes to actual Black Friday sales, PlayStation Plus will only be discounted to $45 at most major retailers. That’s still a 25% savings, so it’s worth tacking on another year to your subscription at this price. You can snag the discounted 12-month subscription at a couple of retailers now as part of their early Black Friday sales.
