Right now, you can get up to 36% off all PlayStation Plus tiers, thanks to a sneaky Black Friday workaround that lets you get it for cheaper than the price Sony has set.

As you know, PS Plus Premium is well and truly coming into its own as a huge catalog of incredible titles, old and new. With all the…well…essential features of Essential and hundreds of games, it’s starting to offer incredible value for money — especially at this lower price.

PS Plus Black Friday deal (US)

PlayStation Plus: 25% off at the PlayStation Store

PlayStation Plus: 25% off at the PlayStation Store
You can now get 25% off all PlayStation Plus tiers when buying directly from the PlayStation Store. With this discount, a one-year Essential membership drops to $44.99, Extra falls to $74.99 and Premium plummets to $89.99.

If you’re shopping in the UK, things start to get a little more interesting. Because while there is still the same 25% off discount at the PlayStation Store, you can actually get PlayStation gift cards worth the value of a year-long PS Plus for cheaper.

This combo breaker means you can up to £36 off the subscription service — the biggest discount we’ve ever seen on this service.
