share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

You could say that the PlayStation 5 console alone is already a major gift. But what if it still has some codes in store for you? That's doubly awesome, I guess.

Some of the codes you can get are free games for your console, or any other microtransactional goods you can earn while using the PS5. Or if you've bought a digital version of a game from a third-party retailer, they'll often give you a code too.

You just need to redeem it. And once that's done, you can enjoy the freebies it has inside.

And so, here's how to redeem a code on your PS5:


How to redeem a code on PS5

The first thing you need to do is to go to the PlayStation Store of your PS5 screen. Click on the PS Store icon just on the far left of your main menu.

Look for the Redeem Code option by pressing the Down button to 'open' and explore the options available.

Then return to the top by pressing the Up button and you can find the options toolbar on the upper right part of your screen.

Click for more options, and choose the Redeem Code one. Enter your 12-digit code and begin the download of your freebies.
