PlayStation Network: Pre-paid Cards – Best Cheap Deals

PSN_Logo Now that Sony is bringing the PlayStation Network (PSN) back online and with the PlayStation Store arriving later in the month, now’s a good time to check out the range of PSN pre-paid cards that are available.

The advantage with these cards is that you can avoid entering your credit/debit card details into your PSN account. You can also save yourself some money when you shop around for these cards. If you have a look at the lists of prices below you will see many of the cards cost less than the value they redeem for in the PlayStation Store. There are also some US links towards the bottom of this post.

*With the instant digital code, you pay for the item as usual and then you get a code to redeem (i.e. type into) in the PlayStation Store. In’s case, codes appear in the codes tab of the “my account” section of their website.

If you have a Xbox 360 then you can remove your credit card details online from Xbox LIVE and/or check out the best deals for 12-month Xbox LIVE gold memberships.
