Where are you checking? The only way to verify your expiry date is by checking on your PS3 via XMB>Account Management>Services>PlayStation Plus>PlayStation Plus. This reflects your true expiry date.

i go to game press triangle > information , it was saying 3 days left , what i did was redownload all my games but cancelled as soon as it started now it says 733 days but not all games give the time remaining . the good thing was that when i bought plus all the games were on top in my download list. i actually bought 2 year of plus to take advantage of the october spend 100$ . it comes to 40$ a plus . i was suprised to see how many games i got with plus in 15 month when i bought the 1 year +3 months special , about 130 games total , but alot of them were minis and ps1 , i like it better now 3 or 4 psn games a month , don't really play the ps1 games , the minis i played on my psp

i don't have a pc i use ps3 browser

**bleep**, that's pretty smart. Would consider doing the same if I had $100. I'm sure others will take advantage.

Hate to be picky, but this is slightly incorrect (I just tried this).

 

The correct path is XMB>Account Management>Transaction Management>Services List>Playstation Plus>Playstation Plus

 

Otherwise thanks for the tip. I wasn't sure the exact date I signed up and I was looking for some sort of history.

yeah if you push triangle on a game you got in Plus, it states the original expiration date of your Plus at the time that you downloaded that game. f you've stacked time since you first downloaded that game, it won't update that date. It's a wrinkle that we're trying to iron out.
