Spring coupon on games and memberships
Rakuten, the Japan-owned online retailer who bought out Buy.com years ago, is running a pretty solid coupon code today thanks to a MasterCard promotion. You can now take twenty bucks of a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold one-year membership, or choose from $25 off Nioh. All you’ll need is MasterPass and a coupon code.
Most items at Rakuten price $50 and up are $15 off when you pay with MasterPass while applying the Spring themed coupon code during checkout. You will need to jump through the hoop and sign up for MasterPass, but the savings are pretty significant and worth the extra steps (no doubt that’s the point of the promotion).
The best deals to make are on titles price right near the $50 mark. This gets you the best percentage discount since the coupon is a flat $15 discount and not percentage based. It’s the perfect for the PS4 exclusive Nioh and a few Wii U titles that rarely get discounts. We’ve rounded up some of the best deals below.
Use coupon code: SPRING15
