As an FYI, codes now are single use as it is the same code for the UV copy.

 

So are you saying that now Sony DVDs/Blurays don't come with codes that can be used an unlimited number of times (like before)?

Yes.  You use the UV code (which is a unique code in every DVD case) to register the disc on Sony Rewards.  I mean, I guess if someone could share one of their UV codes after they've redeemed them we could try to see if they can still be redeemed or if they are in fact one time use only now.

I have already tried, codes are a 1 time use now.  If yo try to add on sonyrewards.com, it will say this title has been already registered.

This rewards program gets more and more useless every time I log in. I can't buy PSN or SEN gift cards any more because I've "reached the maximum amount" or whatever (I've definitely done less than $100 for the year). I'm cancelling my Playstation credit card first chance I get after the PS4 comes out (used my card for the store pick-up preorder at best buy, so I have to keep it until then).

I can't buy any more $10 cards (I think I've bought 3 over the last 2 years) but hopefully I can buy a $20.  I have about 900 points and should be able to redeem two more movie codes tomorrow, then I'll have every single code redeemed.  So I'm hoping to get a $20 code for about $10 out of pocket.  Then I'll be done forever with the program, though I probably won't cancel my card until later.

Well I've only ever bought $10 cards ($20 once) and I'm not able to buy any denomination of either kind now, so I expect that if you can't buy $10, you can't do $20 either. Is there any sense in calling customer service to complain? Probably just a waste of time..

And now I just noticed that the online Sony Store has been redesigned, and I can't find any place on there where you can order physical Gift Cards now...only online-email versions at http://store.sony.co...KU=27-VIRTUALGC

 

When I try to go through checkout ordering one of these, I get an error saying that this item cannot be delivered to my address....anyone else having this issue?  Maybe it's just a fluke in the new system, or maybe Sony's cutting off yet another way we could redeem our SR points :/

Emailed to complain about not being able to buy PSN credit and I got this response:

Thank you for your email. 
 
We have every intention to lift the order limitation on these codes.  We apologize for 
the delay.
 
In the meantime, use your Sony Card [PlayStation Card] to load your wallet on PSN and 
automatically earn 5X [10X] bonus points for the purchase.  You can then submit a purchase 
credit to utilize your points towards the charge on your card.
 
We will also accommodate a 15% discount on the purchase credit at the time we process it.  
This means that, as an example,  1, 150 points will be deducted from your account for every 
$10 you load to your PSN wallet, and we will apply 150 points back into your account after 
the purchase credit is processed.

It's a pain in the ass, but I will probably do this since I have been spending money in the PS Store anyway.

I guess it's good to know they're still working on it. I just do not understand how the problem could be taking this long to fix. It has literally been almost a year. It makes me wonder exactly how badly they actually want it resolved. :/

All of this hassle of not being able to redeem my earned SR points for PSN or SEN codes....points I actually did earn by spending actual money with my PlayStation credit card (not just free points from this thread).....I'm finally given up on using my PlayStation credit card now.  At least with my Chase Freedom card I can earn back points that I can use whenever and however I want to, even though I will only earn back 1% compared to the 10% on PSN and 3% on phone bills.  Whatevers.

I just checked my Sony Rewards account, and I see that now there are new digital-download items (presumably codes to be used on PSN to get access to digital games), as well as "new" listing for PSN $10 and $20 codes.  I wasn't able to add these PSN-credit codes in the past, as I had reached my maximum allotment, but now I can add these "new" $10 and $20 PSN items to my cart!  So, check them out if you're looking to use your SR points. :)

Oh my god, my order for a $10 PSN code just went through!  Got the code already, just need to redeem it! Awesome!

 

Thanks so much for posting man!  Had 995 points on my account so the $10 code only cost me a nickel.  As far as I know I've got every single movie code redeemed and since it sounds like there won't be any more, I guess I'm done with Sony Rewards for now.  I still have my PlayStation card but the only thing I ever use it on is PSN, and I have over $200 credit at BB so I'll have to exhaust that before I ever start buying directly off of PSN again.  So glad my last pile of points could go towards something so worthwhile.

Looks like you earn 100 points by linking your Sony Rewards account with your PSN/SEN account.  Was really simple, maybe I'll slowly try to amass points with WoF and other bonus promos still

Eh, of course I just noticed that after I purchased about $30 worth of PSN stuff an hour ago to get the $10 back on $50 spent promotion..oh well.

 

Also in addition to the linking PSN/SEN to Sony Rewards accounts, there's a few bonuses you can get right now listed at http://www.sonyrewar...n/opportunities

 

 
100 POINTS
Earn points at PlayStation Store
Link your Sony Rewards and Sony Entertainment Network (PSN) accounts to earn at least point per dollar spent at PlayStation Store. Link by 11/12 & get 100 Bonus points.
 
5X POINTS
PlayStation Store bonus offer
Earn 5 points per $1 spent on your first PlayStation Store purchase after linking your PSN account to Sony Rewards. Offer ends 11/30/13.
 
250 POINTS
PlayStation Plus membership offer
Earn 250 points when you link your account and purchase a 1 year PlayStation®Plus membership on PlayStation Store. Offer ends 11/30/13.
 
 
 
So linking the accounts gives you "at least" 1 point per dollar, which is equal to 1% back on PSN purchases then.  Combined with the PlayStation CapitalOne card, I guess I can earn back 11% on everything now.....eh, maybe I will continue to use my PlayStation credit card after all...especially since now there are "new" PSN codes on Sony Rewards that I am eligible to redeem for now.

so i go to login to sonyrewards.com today, as I've done several times this week, and i get a "user authentication" page stating:

 

You’re accessing Sony Rewards from a computer we do not recognize. When we don't recognize the computer you're using, it may be because:

  • You're using a new computer or one you haven't used before.
  • You switched to a new browser or changed your browser settings.
  • You deleted your cookies.

For your protection we will need to confirm your identity before you can access your account.

 

 

and they ask for the last four of my social, which is f@@ked because this site is vaguely tied to my visa CC and even Capital One wouldn't blatantly ask for the last four of my social, let alone a rewards site that doesn't require a CC to use.  I haven't cleared my cookies and I've never seen this page before in whatever 5 years I've had it, so this seems sketch city to me.  Anyone else ever gotten this page??

Yes but they didn't ask me that question.  Try logging in again and see if they give you a new question.

Sweet! Wish I would have seen this thread before I funded my PSN wallet again yesterday, but it's all good. Looks like they also added several digital games in the rewards section. They are overpriced/MSRP, but it's nice to see them make some sort of effort. With cards back in stock and additional points on PSN purchases, this program might not be dead to me after all.

Yes, I got the exact same thing, for the very first time ever, last night.  I just gave them the last 4 of my social because I wanted my $10 PSN credit haha.

If you link your PSN account to sony rewards, you get 100 points. You get 5x on your first PSN purchase after linking and you also get 250 bonus points if you buy a 12 month PS+ subscription.

I also had to enter the last 4 digits of my SS last night as well.  I linked my PSN and SR accounts together, and purchased another $50 of stuff on PSN, some hopefully I'll get $20 back for spending $100 on PSN before the end of yesterday.  I also haven't received any SR points for those purchases yet, but I'd guess those points might not update until once a week or so.

Apparently, if you have their credit card, it will ask you your SSN.  Otherwise, I think it will ask a different question.  I tried putting in a fake number just in case it was some scam for some reason, but it would lock me out after 3 tries.  So on the third try, I put in my real one and it went through as normal.
