Here's how to score a year of PlayStation Plus for only $40

It can be pretty frustrating to be a PlayStation gamer without a PlayStation Plus (opens in new tab) membership at times. Certain games require you to be a member to access online multiplayer modes; some games are even entirely unplayable without a membership.

Luckily, thanks to a sale at Newegg, you can start your subscription to PlayStation Plus for just $39.99 (opens in new tab) when you use promo code EMCDFFD52 during checkout. That brings the cost down to just $3.33 per month, nearly 70% off its cost when buying one month at a time. This sale is set to end on February 21, so be sure to make the purchase soon if you're interested.

There are a ton of benefits that come with having a PlayStation Plus membership like free games and discounts on digital downloads and DLC at the PlayStation Store, but the most important is that it scores you access to online multiplayer gaming modes in most PlayStation games. There are even some games you can't play whatsoever without a membership, including some of last year's best-sellers. This makes having a membership worth the cost even if you don't take advantage of the rest of its features.

My personal favorite benefit of PlayStation Plus are the free games you receive every month. You get to keep these games for as long as you're a member — even if your subscription ends and then you sign back up later. The games offered can be hit or miss, but there's usually several titles offered throughout the year that you won't want to miss. This month, PlayStation Plus members can download BioShock: The Collection, The Sims 4, and Firewall Zero Hour for PSVR for free. The BioShock Collection includes a whole trilogy of games too.

This PlayStation Plus subscription will be delivered as a digital code to your email which you'll be able to use on the PlayStation Store to unlock your full year of membership. Delivery usually occurs within minutes, though it could take up to 48 hours.
