If you picked up a PlayStation 4 with a Black Friday deal, keep in mind that a PlayStation Plus membership is an absolute must-have for online gaming. The biggest deal on 12-month memberships only comes around once a year during the week of Black Friday, and it is live right now via Walmart and Amazon. Keep in mind that you might be able to save an additional $10 on the price of each membership when you create a new account at Walmart and use the code ELLEN10 at checkout. The deal is limited to the first 50,000 uses so it may have ended. Definitely worth a shot though.
You should also consider the fact that these memberships are stackable, so you can load up now if you're afraid that Sony won't offer the deal next year. Microsoft seems to have pulled the plug on 1-Year Xbox Live Gold memberships this year, so Sony could definitely follow suit.
Once the PlayStation Plus membership is purchased, Walmart / Amazon will send you a code, so there's no physical card to deal with. All you need to do is pass the code on to the recipient and they can redeem it to extend their membership for an additional year on top of any time that is remaining on their current subscription. For the uninitiated, here are some of the benefits of a PlayStation Plus subscription:
