Best Buy surprises PS4 and PS5 users with free gift

Best Buy has surprised PS4 and PS5 users with a free gift, but to get this free gift you will have to spend some money first. Unfortunately, the free gift is not a free PS4 game or a free PS5 game or a subscription to PS Plus or PS Now. It’s not even a free PSN gift card. On the contrary, all the purchases of select PlayStation Store gift cards on PSN will be free Gran Turismo 7 credits. Unless you own the new PlayStation racing game, this free gift is obviously not very useful. If you own and play the game, you need all the credits you can get with how expensive purchases in the game are.

More specifically, every online purchase of a $ 75 PlayStation Store gift card gives you 750,000 credits, while every $ 50 PlayStation Store gift card gives you 250,000 credits. These are the only variants and they are limited to online purchases. In other words, they do not apply to purchases in the store.

It is unclear how long this offer will be available, but at the time of release it is still available and has been for at least a few days. That said, this will not be a permanent offer, so it is very possible when you read this that it will be expired.

Gran Turismo 7 was released last month on March 4 via PS4 and PS5 only. The Polyphony Digital-developed game boasts an 87 on Metacritic and appears to be selling well, despite criticism of expensive microtransactions and grinding, both of which led to the game being bombed review not long after its release. The backlash became so severe at one point that the game only had a user review score of 2.1 on Metacritic, making it the lowest rated PlayStation game ever in terms of user review score.
