About PSN Gift Cards

A PSN gift card is a prepaid, non-reloadable digital card preloaded with a specific value, and used to fund your PSN account for the purchase and digital download of entertainment content on the PlayStation store.

A PlayStation Network card or PlayStation gift card (PSN gift card) is designed for use on the PlayStation store. The PSN card can be used to fund or top-up your Canadian region PlayStation account.

Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. issues the PlayStation gift card or PSN gift card as the ultimate entertainment card for the purchase and download of the latest games. You can equally use the gift card in your PlayStation account to watch movies, listen to music, and more.

How It Works

The PSN gift card is specially designed for PlayStation network Canada transactions. Hence, Canadian PSN gift cards can only be applied on Canadian region PlayStation accounts, because your PlayStation account will only accept gift cards from the country specified on your PlayStation account.

You can purchase a PSN gift card and send it as a gift to your loved ones or apply for the card on your PlayStation account for redemption on PS4, PS3, PSP Systems, PS Vita, PC, and more.

To enjoy the complete functionality of the PlayStation and Sony Entertainment Store, and the benefits that accompany the gift cards, you need to have an account with the PlayStation Network (PSN). With this, you can redeem the gift cards to your PlayStation network Canada wallet and buy or download PS4 or PS3 games, watch or rent or buy movies, listen and subscribe to the streaming music service. In addition to this, the PSN gift card can be used to subscribe to Sony’s PlayStation Plus service and enjoy access to free games, PlayStation store discounts, and multi-player online gaming.

Therefore, rather than using your credit card to purchase digital content on the plantation store, you can conveniently fund your PSN wallet with a PSN gift card, which comes with a redemption code. The PSN gift card is also an excellent gift for family or friends, especially for young gamers who don’t have credit cards to enable them to buy a game of their choice on the PlayStation Network.

About The PlayStation Store

The PlayStation gift card is suitable for adding funds to your PlayStation account, which you can subsequently use for purchases and download on the PlayStation store. The PlayStation Store is the digital and online store of the PlayStation Network and Sony Computer Entertainment.

The PlayStation Store is accessible on the PS game consoles, computers, and mobile devices.

How To Buy PSN Gift Cards

PSN gift cards are only valid for the Canadian PSN store. This implies that the designated country for your account on the PlayStation Network must be Canada.
