Greetings, Arsians! The Dealmaster is back with another round of deals to share. Today’s list is headlined by a deal on one-year membership cards for Sony’s PlayStation Plus service, which are currently going for $40 on eBay.
While this is the typical sale price we see for 12-month subscriptions, it’s generally as low as they get for most of the year.
(This was their going rate on Prime Day, for instance, and the rare occasions on which they have dropped lower usually involve being a part of a membership program for a particular retailer such as Costco.) For context, Sony itself sells 12-month plans for $60, though it’s not unusual to see them in the high $40 or low $50 range at any given point online.
Just note that this discount applies to physical membership cards, not digital codes, so while you’re paying less, you’ll have to wait a few extra days from shipping. The specific eBay seller here is “neogames,” which isn’t a household name by any means but has received extremely high user ratings over the years, so there’s little reason to expect anything fishy or untrustworthy. And as a reminder, PlayStation Plus memberships are required for online access with most PS4 games and include two free monthly games, as well as various PlayStation Store discounts, as perks. New codes can be stacked on top of existing subscriptions, and there’s been next to no indication that Sony will drop the service in any way with the inevitable launch of the PlayStation 5.
If you’re all set on the PlayStation front, though, we also have big discounts on new Lenovo ThinkPad laptops, Google’s Pixel 3, iPads, and more. Have a look at the full rundown below.
