It would be nice to get games cheaper. But I don't want to even try if it wont work.

It's been a while since I've done this but it should work. I bought a code for Tearaway for Vita from Amazon US and it worked fine on my Canadian PSN account.

At worst, you can just make an American PSN account and redeem it there. Download the game to your console, make sure you set it as your primary machine and you can play it with your Canadian account. I did that for several games back on the PS3.

I have purchased quite a few PC Steam and non-Steam games from Amazon.com, and I think a PS4 game or two. I keep a US shipping address on my account for when I want to order codes, you just have to be REALLY SURE you are buying a code and not something physical to be mailed to you. Although if you mess up you can easily cancel.

You don't need to make a US PSN account, probably because we're both region 1.

For the US address I use a Mailboxes Etc. in Delaware, as Delaware has no state sales tax (that I know of), on the off chance something does get mailed they probably know how to deal with unsolicited mail.

I haven't seen many PS4 codes for sale much cheaper than what can be got locally though. If you see any hot deals, feel free to post them in reply :)

Well all games in Canada are more expensive than they are in America. In America games are 59.99, but where I am in Canada they're $80.(Including tax.)

You'll be charged in USD, so it'll end up being the same price

I just bought something and spent 59.99. Posted to my credit card as 59.99. If I bought it here it would be 69.99. In stores would have been 81.

59.99 US at current rate would be 74.90 Canadian

So you saved about 5 dollars.

Where I live games are 69.99 with 15% tax. Comes to around $80.50. It's madness! MADNESS!
