I guess they are still doing it, I just got one. There isn't an expiration date so for $30 I got a few. Just letting people know. This is a black friday deal so it may only be in the USA.

I guess these deals could go off and on throughout the year too. Just letting some know about it since it's still going on.

[QUOTE="Demi_God, post: 6257208]oops :X haha I'll change it.[/QUOTE]

I was excited for a moment. Thanks for shattering my high hopes of free PS+

:(

Joke is on me for assuming the words "Gamestop" and "free" could ever be used together.

So I bought one and, unfortunately, I can't get it to work. I've tried to enter it on the ps4, which is not working correctly obviously, then I tried to enter it on my computer several times. It keeps telling me the code is entered incorrect or is no longer valid. I am positive it is being entered correctly. I am currently using the free 30 day trial that came with the ps4. Could this possibly be part of the issue? I doubt it is, but at this point I'm lost. Any help would be hugely appreciated.

I've had codes fail for me before, you might have to call Sony, and they will email you a new code.
Pain, but at least you will get it.
I just bought one myself, the deal was to good top pass up. I had $60 saved for Infamous, but I think $30 wont be to hard to find by March.
Don't worry about the code not working, no matter what you will get your 12 months.

Thx for the info. I feel a lot better knowing that Sony will still honor the 12 months. It's actually two codes not working for me, so 24 months. That would be a huge waste if they weren't going to fix it.

Got in on the Amazon one year PS+ for $30. It's back to $50 now. Tried all day yesterday to enter the code on the PS4 and kept getting kicked back to the PDM. Finally, read all the messages that Sony had stopped PS+ codes on the PS4. It looks like it was just being hammered.

Entering the PS+ code on the PS3 only generates an error message now, so something changed. But the PS+ code activation is working again for the PS4 and it is beauty. Let's see $30 for 12 months, that is $2.50 per month and I get hundreds of free games!?!? That is a Pay Wall I can live with.

I suspect Amazon will have another $30 PS+ one year for PS4, towards the holidays. Didn't realize how cool it was, now in the store, the price has a slash through it and only the PS+ button is lit up. Had to do it for BF4 MP anyway and didn't want to mess with the trial codes having to use a credit card. Interesting how PSN can link to these other subscription networks like Origin for BF4 and it was easy.

If you entered the code correctly on a PC it should say that you cannot redeem this code on via the internet site, but must redeem it on a console. I forgot the exact wording, but that's what it did to me when I tried to register it on the playstation.com site.

Note that these cards are only activated at the cash register. There's a special code below the UPC that is unique for each card. Make sure this code matches what's on the receipt. When the transaction is placed, it should report the number and validate the code. This is to prevent 5 finger discounts ;-)

If it's not the same number (i.e. digit is transposed because some idiot put it in incorrectly on the register) then take it back to the store you bought it at.

Yea at first it was saying it was invalid, but now I'm getting the message that I cannot enter the code on the site.
