How to Cancel Your PlayStation Plus Subscription
PlayStation Plus (PS Plus) is Sony’s subscription service that grants you access to benefits like free games and online multiplayer. If you’ve decided that you’ve had enough, you need to cancel the service to ensure it doesn’t automatically renew.
You can either cancel PS Plus on your PlayStation console or via a web browser. We’re going to show you how, with instructions that work regardless of your PlayStation Plus tier.
What Happens When You Cancel PlayStation Plus?
Technically, you don’t cancel PlayStation Plus. Instead, you disable the auto-renewal. This means that payment won’t automatically get taken at the end of your current billing cycle.
You can continue enjoying all your PlayStation Plus benefits until that date. Thereafter, you won’t get the benefits again until you resubscribe. This also means you will lose access to your PS Plus games and online storage until that time.
Unless required by local law, or if you talk to a generous customer support agent, you won’t get a refund for your PlayStation Plus subscription if you forget to cancel. In some territories, you can request a refund within 14 days of signing up for PlayStation Plus—this begins from when you first join the service, including any free trial, not from renewal.

Cut Your PlayStation Gaming Costs
Although PS Plus is great, perhaps it’s an expense you can’t afford. If so, cancel it. You can always resubscribe later.
Besides, gaming can be an expensive hobby, especially if you like to buy games on release. Why not try buying used PS4 or PS5 games to save some cash?
