How do I redeem a child’s PSN gift card?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

To redeem a child’s PSN gift card, you can follow these step-by-step instructions:

1. Start by accessing the Settings menu on your PlayStation console. You can do this by navigating to the top row of icons on the home screen and scrolling all the way to the right. Select the gear icon to open the Settings menu.

2. In the Settings menu, scroll down and select “Users and Accounts.” This option is usually located near the bottom of the list.

3. Within the Users and Accounts menu, select the “Account” option. This will take you to a screen where you can manage your account settings.

4. In the Account menu, you will find various options related to your PlayStation account. Look for “Payment and Subscriptions” and select it.

5. Within the Payment and Subscriptions menu, you should see the option to “Redeem Codes.” Choose this option to proceed with redeeming the gift card.

6. You will be prompted to enter the code from the gift card. Use your controller to input the code and select “Redeem” when you are done. Make sure to enter the code accurately to avoid any issues.

7. The system will verify the code and if it is valid, the value of the gift card will be added to your child’s PlayStation Network account balance. They can then use this balance to make purchases on the PlayStation Store.

It’s important to note that parental controls and restrictions may be in place for child accounts. If you encounter any issues during the redemption process or if the gift card does not appear in your child’s account balance, you may need to check and adjust the parental control settings accordingly.
