If you have been looking for a way to get in on the benefits of Playstation Plus, such as free games for the PS3 and PS Vita and online multiplayer for the upcoming PS4, Rakuten.com (formerly Buy.com) may have the offer for you starting Sunday, Sept. 30.

The 12-month Playstation Plus card is on sale at Rakuten.com for $39.99 with free shipping available. The price is actually $44.99 with a $5 coupon code to make it $39.99. This coupon code can only be used once per order so you can't purchase two cards at the same time and get the $39.99 price. You'll have to start a second order to get the second card.

A Playstation Plus subscription will be required to play online multiplayer games on the Playstation 4 with the exception of free-to-play games and MMOs depending on the publisher. However, it grants access to the Instant Game Collection on the Playstation 3 and PS Vita which contains a rotating collection of free games for both systems. The subscription also gives access to 1GB of cloud storage for game saves, automatic system updates, invites to exclusive betas, early access to demos and full game trials.

You can follow Scott via Facebook, Twitter, RSS feed or email alerts for all the latest game news and deals as well as the weekly Furious Fourcast podcast/videocast. All game news on Examiner can be followed at the Game On Facebook page and Twitter feed.

Update: Unfortunately, it was learned that the coupon code is only good once per order. Worse, the "AUTUMN10" promo code does not work with video game items such as the PS Plus subscription. The article has been updated to reflect that.
