Combine Your PS4 PS Plus Cards for Over a Year of PS Plus

Activate all of your PS Plus codes. The time adds up.

by

If you're like me, you received at least two different PS Plus codes with your PS4. The first thing I wanted to know when I looked at them: do they add up? I had a seven-day, a 30-day and a 12-month code. So I figured, why not test it?

I went in to the Playstation Store and entered my seven-day code. It said a bunch of stuff about automatic fund transfers if it expired when I entered the code. Nothing about whether additional trials/membership codes stacked. Afterwards, I entered in the 30 day trial. Again it gave me the automatic funds transfer information.

To check the status of my subscription, I had to go into settings. From there, I went to PSN, account information, services list, and PS Plus. Note: the menu you are at now shows subscription status of the highest subscription you've activated. This menu will not show you the total time you have remaining on PS Plus. To see time remaining, click the PS Plus option below your subscription details. All the time you have activated is added together and displayed on this menu.

Activate all your codes; some have expiration dates, it would be silly to let them expire.

    So if your ps plus was close to finishing, could you add another one so that you can keep ps plus games from before?

    I buy a subscription to PSP 1 year on 21Feb14.
    The 25th my father give me a gift, another card of one year that I load correctly.

    However, when consulting for internet, it is shown expiration up to 21Feb15.
    Why the expiration date it is not up to 21 or 25Feb16?

    i thought the free 30 days that came with my ps4 was only for new subscribers to ps plus. Didn't know i could stack it with my existing one. I'll give it a try then. :)

    I did the "trial" codes first, but I don't see why it wouldn't work the other way around.

    Does this work this way only on PS4 or PS3 as well? I never even tried to do something like this, but it is really good to know it works!

    PS Plus is universal and covers all three systems as long as you use the same account. The way of accessing your PS Plus information will be different on PS3 and PS Vita, but the time will still add up.

    If you're unsure just add it on the Sony website to your account

    You don't want your subscription to run out, if it does you lose all those PS Plus games you've downloaded. You will then have to actually buy them.

    makes total sense, good thing I read this now, because my subscription should be ending at the beginning of January, I'll get a new one soon then
