Enjoy even more savings by topping up your PSN wallet with digital currency

While linking your debit/credit card to your PSN account is perfectly fine, it does mean you’re likely missing out on buying digital PS4 and PS5 games for even cheaper. Why? Because retailers like CD Keys, GAME and others regularly discount PSN currency cards for much less than their face value. You can make the savings go even further, plus it lessens the security risk should your PlayStation account become compromised.
