You just purchased a Playstation, and you cannot wait to explore the world of PlayStation Plus. But, you don't want to spend money on this service before deciding if it is suitable for your needs. If you have a controller and you didn't connect it yet, see how to connect new PS4 controller to your console.
So, before we explain how to get PlayStation Plus without paying anything, I want to tell you about the many benefits that the Sony service offers.
PlayStation Plus subscribers can play multiplayer games over the Internet. Without this subscription, you will only be able to challenge one another once. PS Plus has many benefits. For example, you can download a game and then play it.
Additionally, you have special discounts, access to beta games and demos, and get two free games each month. You can use the PS4, PS3 & PS Vita consoles to access the subscription with all its benefits.
We think your curiosity has reached its limit, and you are eager to get PlayStation Plus. This is it:
You need to sit down at your computer or console and read the instructions. We're sure you will reach the goal you set at the end of this reading.
Before we go into the tutorial and show how to get the most out of PlayStation Plus, we want to remind you that this free trial is only available to SEN accounts who have never used the service. In addition, you cannot use the two-week promotional period if you don't create a new account or associate it with your console.
The free 14-day trial period of PlayStation Plus has been activated.
After pressing the OK and Accept buttons, your subscription to PlayStation Plus will be confirmed.
The subscription you activated this way is valid for 14 days after creation. After that, you will be charged 7.99 EUR via your chosen payment method unless you cancel the automatic renewal.

Some telephone companies offer new customers a digital gift redemption option as a welcome bonus. This is a period during which you can freely use any digital service you wish. For example, Fastweb and Vodafone offer a free year's subscription to PlayStation Plus.
Vodafone is the only provider that offers this opportunity to those who select the IperFibra Family plan. The plan includes unlimited calls to any national landline, unlimited FTTC/FTTH fiber internet up to 1000 Mbps and 200 Mbps upload, unlimited FTTC/FTTH Internet up to 2000 Mbps, unlimited FTTC/FTTH Internet up to 500 Mbps download, unlimited FTTH Internet up to 200 Mbps upload, a SIM data package with 1 Giga Internet 4G included every four weeks, and a 4G.
To retrieve the PlayStation Plus coupon associated with the Fastweb subscription, you must connect to MyFastPage. Log in and then go to the Digital Life section.
Once you have received your code, it will be possible to redeem it online. First, log in to the PlayStation Store's dedicated section by clicking the link at the top, clicking your ID, and clicking Redeem codes.
If needed, you can reset your password and enter the coupon code into the box on the right. Click on the Next button to finish.
The same operation can also be performed directly from the PS4 by accessing PlayStation Settings:
This process is slightly different from the other Sony home consoles.
Follow these steps:
PS3 (or PS4) - Open the PlayStation Store and scroll down until the item Rede Codes is located at the bottom left. Click on it, enter the coupon code, and press the Continue button.
PS Vita - To access the PlayStation Store, press the Options button (...), select Redeem Codes Entry, enter the code and then click the Continue button.
In this instance, to avoid paying charges at the end, you will need to deactivate the automatic renewal of PlayStation Plus. For any problems, you can consult online help.

Are you sure you'll spend money to renew your PlayStation Plus subscription? You can deactivate the automatic renewing, which I have said several times in this guide. Your subscription will be automatically canceled after the promotional period has ended, and no charges will be applied.
To continue, connect to the Internet Site of PlayStation Plus. Click on your username in the top left, then click on the item Payments Management. Then, move to Off the switch that will automatically renew your subscriptions or allow you to pay for preordered content. (The button turns gray).
You can also remove the payment method you have chosen. Click the arrow beside the item and then click Remove or Yes. For example, if you selected PayPal, an email would be sent to confirm the cancellation of your debt agreement.
You can also get the same result from the PlayStation 4 by pressing the X on the controller. Finally, select your PlayStation Network subscription and then cancel voice automatic renewal.
If your Sony home console is not listed, please follow these instructions:
PS3 - Open the XMB menu, select PlayStation Network> Account Management> Transaction Management> ServicesList, then select the entry for PlayStation Plus subscription. Press the X button and choose Cancel automatic renew the item.
PS Vita: From the Home screen, start the PlayStation Store. Click the Options button, then the Service List Item. Choose the item related to PlayStation Plus, and click the Cancel Automatically Renewed button.
You must do this at least within 24 hours of the "natural expiration" of your PlayStation Plus subscription. If you don't, you might be charged for renewal (which you can use until the next deadline).

There is always a chance that a service could be hacked. However, adding your Playstation account to the Playstation store is as safe as adding it to any other big store like Amazon or Google.
You can protect your account by setting a strong password and activating 2FA. You will be notified by text message if your account attempts to log in from an unknown address. This code is required to log in.
