What does Sony consider retail  PS Plus cards? Do you consider these to be gift cards, point cards, etc.? I ask this because I was charged sales tax, whereas i do not get charged sales tax for regular PSN point cards.

 

Is there any documentation with product descriptions as what I am asking?


Since the PS+ program is a service, then buying a PS+ card would be subject to sales tax. If you live in a state where Sony doesn't charge sales tax on PSN purchases, you can get around being taxed for PS+ by buying a $50 PSN card instead...

I currently have a subscription to PS+ but I'm borderline OCD about not having money regularly collected from my account compliments of schizophrenia. If I buy a PS+ retail card or buy another 3 month PS+ subscription from PSN, will funds be automatically deducted from my account for a new subscription or will my subscription be extended for another three months when my current subscription ends?

You can set your settings to not auto-renew easily enough. It should be under Account Management under the PSN collumn on the XMB.

I didn't think this was worth its own post. But just wanted to know if there is a glitch or something I have to do cause according to the site I do not have play station plus but I know I do. I bought a three month card less then a month ago and got the October games on my ps3 now. Is there something I can or need to do to fix my account on the site?

If I download a game being plus, then I delete it from my drive, after I delete it, my membership expires, then a week pass and I get plus again, can I download the game again? that's my biggest question.

With the announcement of PS+ coming to Vita next week, I've got a question. I made a PSN account before I was 18 when I got my PSP, so I had to make a master account & then a sub account, which is what I mainly use. I haven't had any issues with PS+ so far since the PS3 allows for multiple accounts & I can play any PS+ content that I download with the master with the sub account I use (aside from avatars), but I recall you can only have one account on the Vita. Does that mean I can't use PS+ on Vita due to the fact PS+ can't be applied to sub accounts?

 

I really wish PSN allowed you to turn sub accounts into master accounts so I wouldn't have to keep switching accounts all the time to add money & access PS+ content.

Yes.  As long as you add the game to your account, it will be available to you, even if you leave plus and return later.

Speaking of, reading this new update remove the expiration on cloud saves?

I could swear the original PS+ terms had said if you leave the service, after 3 months all saves on the cloud would expire.
