Remember when I told you that Xbox gave you free games every single month if you have an Xbox one or an Xbox 360?
Well I’ve found another way although this does cost you a few pounds each month – it’s called EA access!
We first found out about EA access when Master Frugal was desperate to get his hands on Fifa 16 before it was released and someone told us that if you had an EA access subscription then you could download a trial version and play 10 hours of game play a week before the game itself was released. We found a code so you could get the first month for £1.79 which didn’t seem bad for 10 hours of a game he was dying to play and you can cancel anytime so we went for it.
We weren’t planning to keep the subscription going at that point to be honest but then we found all of the games that you can download and play as part of the subscription….
Mr Frugal was about to buy Battlefield Hardline which was around the same price as the year’s subscription so we went for that instead and he downloaded that and a good few of the other games too! It’s constantly being updated as well and once you’ve downloaded it then it’s yours to play for as long as you have the EA Access subscription.
You also get 10% off digital download purchases but we’ve always found it cheaper to look around for a better deal – especially with our one in one out policy (a game goes back to be traded for a new game which makes it cheaper and means we don’t have a million games at home).
EA Access costs £3.99 a month or just £19.99 a year which is great value for money when you consider what you get and if you’re lucky you might even get it a bit cheaper if you look around for a code – just search EA access code.
