Troubleshooting Voucher Code and PlayStation Network Card Issues

« Go Back



If you are experiencing issues redeeming voucher codes, including PlayStation® Store Cash, PlayStation® Plus and DLC (downloadable content), please start with the steps below:

  • Enter the code exactly as it is printed.

  • Check the code expiration date.

  • Try again later. Network issues may prevent the code from being redeemed.

If Your PSN Card was Purchased at a Retailer

Below are considerations that should be made if you purchased a PlayStation Network card at an authorized retailer.

PlayStation® Store Cash Cards and PlayStation® Plus Cards must be activated by the retailer.
Check with the retailer to make sure the card has been activated. Only a retailer can activate a PSN Card.

Cards may need to be redeemed by Sony Entertainment Network master accounts from the same region as the card.
PSN Cards may only be redeemable by Sony Entertainment Network Master accounts (i.e. not Sub Accounts) that share the same region.
