How to redeem a code on PS5


If you are reading these lines it means that you have a code for your PS5 and you do not know how to redeem it. Maybe it’s a new game, maybe it’s for a new month, three months or a year of PlayStation Plus.

The point is, you want to know how to redeem your code on PS5 you just bought so you can enjoy whatever the code is. This is where our handy mini guide will help you. We will guide you through the steps to use the code in the system so that you can apply for your digital credit.

It is worth noting that sometimes this is how you will redeem digital items for in-game content. Take Godfall pre-order, for example. It comes with a code to request in-game items like a sword and some extra character skins. you can redeem this code the same way you redeem codes for PlayStation Plus games and subscriptions.

How to redeem a code on PS5

Start your PS5 console

Maybe it goes without saying, but we say it anyway because it is possible to redeem codes for PS5 via the PlayStation Store website.

However, for the purposes of this guide, we will focus on the method used for the PS5 console. Although we will mention where to redeem codes via the PlayStation Store website as well.

Once your PS5 has booted up, scroll down to the PlayStation Store.

Press the directional key to view the different tabs

Once you are in the PlayStation Store section of the home screen, press the bottom button on the D-Pad to view the different tabs. These will appear at the top of the screen and will cover four sections, including Latest, Collections, Subscriptions, and Browse.

If you see these tabs, you should also see a button with three dots in the upper right corner of the UI. This is what you need to click. As this will bring up a number of options for the PlayStation Store.

The redeem code option will be one of the things that will populate in the list shown after hitting that button. Just click on it and you will be redirected to a new screen where you can enter the 12-digit code that you have in your possession.

Now you can enjoy whatever it is.

How to redeem a code on the PlayStation Store website for the PS5

Go to the PlayStation Store website from your desktop browser

Open your web browser and go to the PlayStation Store website. Once there, you will need to log in with your PSN account.

You must be registered so that when you redeem the code, it will apply to your account. So it’s really no different than if you were redeeming a code on Amazon.

Click the profile icon

After logging in, look for the profile icon in the top right corner of the screen. It should look like a small square with a smiley face. This is for your profile settings. Click it.

After clicking it you should see an option to redeem a code. Click on it and a sidebar will appear from the right side of the screen. This will likely load for a few seconds, then ask you to verify your account if you have 2-factor authentication set up.

After verifying your account, the dialog will update again and the 12-digit entry will appear. Enter the code and that’s it.

How to redeem a code in the PS app for PS5

Download and install the PS app

If you don’t already have the app installed on your device and you own a PS5, you should install it as there are so many benefits to having it. Especially after the update Sony released for the app.

Grab the app from the Play Store or App Store, then once installed, sign in with your PSN account.

Launch the PS app

If you have just installed the app, this part will not apply to you as you will already be in the app after logging in. Then you can skip to the next step.

However, if you already have the PS app installed on your device, launch the app. How can you redeem the codes here too.

Tap the PlayStation Store button, then the hamburger menu icon

Within the app with its new interface, the first screen you should see will appear with your friends who are currently online and the most recently played game, along with the trophies you have collected so far for that game.

What you want is the PlayStation Store part of the app. Tap the bottom icon in the navigation menu at the bottom of the app UI that looks like the shopping bag with the PlayStation logo on it.

Then, once you are on the PlayStation Store screen, tap on the hamburger menu icon at the top right of the app’s UI. The button will look like three lines.

After tapping, a menu with the option to redeem the code will appear. Tap it and then if you’ve set up 2-factor authentication, verify your account, then enter the code on the next screen. If you haven’t set up 2-factor authentication, it should immediately ask you to enter your 12-digit code.

After that you are done. Enjoy your new PS5 content. Or check out other PS5 guides for helpful tips!
