If you've felt the pain of auto-renewal you're probably keen to pick up a cheap PlayStation Plus price. PS Plus deals can certainly save you some serious cash over the usual $60 / £50 annual cost, so make sure you're beating that price when you find a saving you like. We're rounding up all the best PlayStation Plus prices further down this page, checking all your favorite retailers for the lowest costs and bringing them straight to you.
If £50 sounds more expensive than you remember in the UK it's because Sony put the price up by £10 in August 2017. Not to worry though, we've found prices closer to the old £40 for you in our PlayStation Plus deals price comparison chart below.
You'll need a PlayStation Plus membership to play PS4 games online. On the "plus" side (that's right, I went there), membership also gives you access to the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection which includes free games each month that are yours to keep while you're a subscriber. The offer format changed recently to no longer include PS3 or PS Vita titles, so you'll only be getting current-gen PS4 titles from now on. Don't worry, you'll still be able to re-download any PS3/Vita/PS4 titles you've added via PS Plus over the years even if your memberships lapses and then you sign up again.
PlayStation Plus memberships also get you exclusive discounts in sales across PlayStation Network and lets you upload game saves to the cloud, which is brilliant for backing up your progress in case your console's hard drive fails.
PS Plus will also be available (with free PS4 games) on PS5. Prepare for your PS5 pre-order by getting that pesky subscription cost out the way for less.
All in all, it's a great value for your money each year. That said, make sure you turn off those pesky auto-renew settings on your console to avoid paying full price, as we've found some tasty discounts for you with these cheap PlayStation Plus prices. Xbox fans, we've got you covered too with the cheapest Xbox Live Gold deals around.

The cheapest PlayStation Plus prices
CDKeys Update: We generally find that CDKeys is one of the cheapest prices to buy a 12-month PlayStation Plus deal, but technical gremlins sometimes mean the deals don't show up in our comparison chart below. Feel free to check the following CDKeys links though, just to make sure you're getting the best PS Plus deal. Prices are usually hovering around £38-£42 in the UK and $50-$58 in the US.
Always check that the PS Plus membership you are purchasing will work in your region.
The rumors are true. There's also a three-month subscription available, but the value isn't as strong and you're technically paying more per month compared to the 12-month PlayStation Plus memberships deals. Take a look.
What are the free PS Plus games this month?
We've got you covered there. Each month we update the list of extensive freebies for the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection. These games are free to download and play the entire time you are still within your PlayStation Plus membership. Why not bookmark the page below to make sure you never miss out?
Are PlayStation Plus memberships worth getting?
If you play games online then PlayStation Plus memberships are absolutely worth purchasing, if not essential to your PlayStation experience. PS Plus does have benefits for those who never play online, however. A constantly updating roster of new titles to download and play for free will save you far more than the membership costs each month, so you're never left wanting if you're open to new experiences and looking for something new to twiddle your thumbs to. On top of that, cloud storage and backups can really come in handy, especially since PS4 systems are ageing quickly now and are more prone to unfortunate crashes.
