Black Friday has come early for PlayStation 4 gamers hoping to score a year of PlayStation Plus for a very low price. In a sudden surprise, a re-seller on eBay by the name of neogames began selling a year's subscription card for PlayStation Plus for over 33% off full retail pricing. The re-seller has a 99% positive feedback rating and the purchase comes with eBay's standard money back guarantee, making the purchase reliable. But there's no telling how long the PlayStation Plus card will be available, so buy soon. Click here to see the deal.

The "Sony PlayStation 1-Year Membership Subscription Card -NEW!" listing is currently retailing for just $38.99, discounted over $33% off its standard $59.99 retail pricing. The purchase can be made through Buy It Now, meaning it's an instant purchase an not an eBay auction. It is not a digital code, but in fact a physical card that will be delivered to the buyer. Shipping is free and is sent out of Los Angeles, California. The PlayStation Plus card is new and the buyer will have to open it to receive the code inside.

For those unfamiliar, PlayStation Plus is a subscription that's required in order to play online multiplayer games and use many online services on the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. For holiday shoppers buying PS4 multiplayer games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare or Borderlands 3, a PlayStation Plus subscription is a fitting supplementary gift. And at the price listed on eBay, there's unlikely to be a better price even through Black Friday.

Holiday shoppers hoping to pick up something for their PS4 friend or family member, a PlayStation Plus subscription is a great idea. It can be redeemed as soon as the gift is received, either for immediate access or to extend the user's ongoing subscription. Or it can be reserved for later use, like when the PS4 gamer is on break or less busy. Since the codes don't expire, they're evergreen gifts. They're even likely to be required for online multiplayer on the upcoming PlayStation 5 console.

While today's eBay sale on PlayStation Plus may not be a Black Friday sale in the traditional sense, it's certainly just one of many ongoing holiday season sales. It's just that time of year. For more traditional Black Friday sales, both Kohl's and Target have already released their advertisements for Black Friday discounts and doorbusters. Other retailers are certain to put out their advertisements over the next week.
