For the ones who didn't stack a bunch of PS Plus subscription before they switched over to the new tier system:

If you were on PS Plus and are now under PS Plus "Essential", Sony is giving you the option to upgrade to PS Plus "Extra" or "Premium" for a flat fee of $100/$150 no matter how many years of "Essential" subscription you have left.

So what you want to do if you are interested in getting into "Extra" or "Premium" for cheap is buy a couple 12 months Playstation Plus Essential for $45 after coupon 10PAYPAL (selecting PP as payment. One time use but it look like they go by IP address...I was able to buy a couple using different devices on different networks. Buy like 2x12months with the coupon then another 2x12 months with a device off Wi-Fi as apparently the cap for the coupon is $108 thanks @dopeyman06 for the tip! ) and then upgrade to Playstation Plus Extra for a $100 flat fee (or Premium for $150) no matter how many years of Essential subscription you have remaining.

Do NOT buy the old PS Plus cards as Sony disabled the option to stack the subscriptions on those so they are only for one year, first time subscribers.

(I bought subscriptions until 12.2028 then upgraded to "Extra" see pic below)

Yes. whether you have PS NOW or PS Plus cards they will still work. since it is all one service now PS NOW cards will convert in to PS PLUS 1 YEAR

Essentials 1-year (which is just PlayStation plus under a new name)

if you wish to upgrade to extra or premium with your old cards they are basically 59.99 gift cards
meaning you will only get about 7 months of PS EXTRA (PS+ and PS NOW)
or PS Premium about 6 months of (PS+ and PS NOW)

you will need 2 (12 MONTH) CARDS just to get a year of premium

Yes, but not in a 1:1 ratio.

If you have the top tier, this will stack at a 50% ratio. So if you buy 1 year of PS Plus Essential, you will get 6 months of PS Plus Premium.

An easy way to look at this is to say that Sony values 1 year of PS Plus Essential at $60, and they value 1 year of PS Plus Premium at $120. So 1 year of PS Plus Essential has the same value as 6 months of Premium.

OK let me try to explain again:

You had PS Plus that was converted to PS Plus "Essential" under the new PS Plus Subscription 3 Tiers system. You can add 12 months of PS Plus Essential for $45 from the link above (instead of $59).

Now Sony is letting you upgrade your PS Plus "Essential" subscription to "Extra" or "Premium" tier for a $100/$150 flat fee (which otherwise would cost you $40/$60 extra a year) no matter how many years of "Essential" subscription you have left . So stack as many years of PS Plus "Essential" as you can and the cheaper it will be to get the "Extra" or "Premium" Tiers (the break even point is at around 2 years, anything after that makes the tier upgrade cheaper and cheaper)
You can stack membership for any amount of years (not sure if there is a limit). Instead of paying $100+ per year with the new subscription model you can just pay 45 per year and then convert the membership with $100. Example you buy 10 years at $45 for $450 and upgrade for $100 totals $550. If you pay $100 at original price you saved $450
I'm confused

Is the flat fee upgrade done through Sony, or also through a third party code? Are there steps on how to do this (or is it just done through the PS+ management on console)?

Look like they killed the 10PAYPAL coupon so now it's $49.80. If anyone finds an other working coupon please share as I wanted to stack a couple more years before I switch to "Extra" yummy

I had PS NOW and now I have premium. Will adding this extend my premium?



EDIT: I went ahead and got this deal (yes the code is still working) and it indeed extend my premium. I am buying another.

Edit 2: See another poster's reply about extending. It only gives me half an extra year for this when redeemed.

If you have Premium, redeeming any code will convert your subscription code to the equivalent value of time of Premium. So if you redeem 1 year of PS Plus, it will give you 6 months of PS Premium.

1 year of PS+ (now PS Plus Essential) is $60/year. 1 year of PS+ Premium is $120. So they value your 1 year of PS+ code as $60 and give you 6 months of PS+ Premium.
