And the immediately go to Facebook to delete the post. :)

I just hide sony rewards posts from everyone but me.

 

 

I think I'll just order Lego Marvel for PS4 for the 2000 points. If I spend the 6000 now, I should probably earn enough for the next new PS4 game that I want by the time it releases.

Well my latest CapitalOne monthly statement should come through hopefully tomorrow, so I'm hoping I'll have 2000 points to use for the promotion in time.  If not, I'll just go ahead and use my PlayStation card for the extra $ left to cover whatever I'll be getting (still not sure what I'll get as PSN cards aren't eligible I guess).

So did they lift the restriction on multiple people using the codes from movies?

I ended up ordering the PS3 bluray remote. I figured for $5 in points after the 2000 bonus that it would be worth it.

Hey guys, I know this is about DVD's but didn't know where I could post up the question. I was wondering how often they restock awards that are sold out and is there anyway to find out when they do restock? I have enough points to get the PS4 Camera but its been sold out for the longest. That's the only thing I want right now.

it's really pretty random when items appear/disappear on Sony Rewards, but it seems that it's maybe monthly when items are restocked/removed from the site.  Also, take note that you can used your SR points on Sony's online store too (here's the PS4 camera: http://store.sony.co...PS4-Accessories).  Looks like it's out of stock right now too, but it's worth looking over there for items too.

The PS4 Camera has been out of stock since before Christmas, it's pretty rare to find for whatever reason these days.

Nothing yet.  I only had about 1300 points to use, so I purchased the extra 700 points with a credit card at checkout for two John Williams music CDs.  Hopefully it'll qualify for the promotion.

I think the promo said 7 days after it ends for the points, so around 2-7-14 we may start seeing them on our account.

It said 7-10 days so I read that as yesterday through Thursday.
The trade list is long, but distinguished.

Don't they usually have a 5000 point one as well in march ? Also for those who didn't have 20 dollars in points did you still get the 20 dollars in bonus points when you paid the difference for the points (eg. Had 15 dollars in points and had to buy the other 5)?

I had about 1300 points, and used my credit card to purchase 700 points ($7.00) to reach the 2000 points.  I received the bonus 2000 points about 2 weeks later :)

It's basically done as a program. You should only look at it as a rewards credit card at this point. 1 point per dollar for purchases plus bonus points on Sony products. Also the PSN bonus that doesn't have to be items bought with the card.

I think it used to be good.  I got a decent amount (at least to me) out of it.  Now, not so much.  Unique movie codes and the issues with the capped or sold out PSN credit which seems to randomly come and go.

However, if people have the time, I think everyone should join it, if just for the free points.  I believe all the old movie codes should still work, so you can still get a decent amount of points along with the slow but steady wheel of fortune weekday puzzles.  Plus any of the special movie tie in promos where you share on FB.   However, once you finish all the codes and there's no new promos, it will be really slow.  Though if you don't mind getting their credit card, that would be your best bet for additional points.

If you're thinking of getting the PlayStation credit card from CapitalOne, then it's a no-brainer to have a Sony Rewards account.  With the PlayStation credit card you get 1% back on all purchases, 3% back for phone bills, fast-service restaurants, and movie theaters, and 10% back on PlayStation Network purchases.  You get those percentages/monies back when you link your card with the Sony Rewards account.  Also, if you link your Sony Rewards account with your PlayStation Network account, you'll automatically earn 1% back from PSN purchases, regardless if you have a PlayStation credit card or not.  So in the end, if you do have a PlayStation credit card, you'll earn 11% back in total on PSN purchases.

 

Lately the PSN/SEN codes/cards on the SR site you can redeem your SR points for have been in stock for quite a while.  Also, the PSN/SEN codes used to have been locked out only for card holders (either PlayStation credit card or Sony credit card), but now they're available for any Sony Rewards account.  As others said, you can still use this thread's DVD/Blu-ray registration codes to get points, but take note that you'll earn a little bit more points for each registration if you have a PlayStation/Sony credit card linked to your SR account.  There's also still a few promotional film websites that have Sony Rewards rewards for playing a game or sharing it on Facebook (usually 250 points, which is equal to $2.50).  

 

In the end though, once you've registered all of the DVD/Blu-ray codes, it's pretty hard to earn any more points on a common occurrence.  There is a daily (Monday-Friday) Wheel of Fortune puzzle you can solve that gives you 10 points each day (so just 10 cents), check this site for the puzzle answers: http://w11.zetaboard...ot/forum/53716/  If you do have a PlayStation credit card though, it is worth having a SR account still though.  Every month I earn about $7 just from paying my Internet and cellphone bills with the card.  Also, take note that you can redeem your SR point on the SR website and also at the official Sony store website (http://store.sony.com/)

I personally don't see it as too bad, though not as good as it used to be.  The Wheel Of Fortune game gives you 50 points a week (about 2500-2600 a year).  This is more than enough to get a $20 PSN/SEN card for a minute or two of effort daily.  It does mean doing the WOF game each weekday, but that is not too tough if you get in the habit.  There are usually a handful of 50-250 point promos through the year for various Sony movies so it is not too tough to crack 3000 points annually without entering any movie codes.  Most loyalty programs have few if any free points and if they do it is definitely not 3000 points a year.

Working a whole year for a $20 SEN card isn't that great a return IMO. This is compared to the glory days a few years ago when there used to be 20 to 30 points a day and 200 points every weekend for the jeopardy game.

I agree it isn't as good as it used to be - the program is what it is.  Compare almost any loyalty program to what it used to be - My Coke Rewards, Warner Bros, Best Buy, Disney, etc. - and almost all are not as lucrative as they once were.  1-2 minutes a day for $30+ annually isn't too bad though not stellar and I definitely understand it is too slow a burn for many.  I see many spending more time for a contest with no guarantee of a return - at least this will return something even if not huge.  There are ways to get faster rewards, but with no purchases and not getting a Sony credit card you will still get about $30 or more a year for the small effort.  To each their own and I definitely understand folks giving up on the program - I expect Sony to restrict or give up on it myself.

There's also the ability to earn points by logging into the Sony site and using their link to other retailers such as Best Buy and Gamestop. You're supposed to earn points when you make online purchases this way. Just did it for the first time the other day and I don't keep track of points to know how well it works but I'd have a lot more points if I had known about this in the past.

It's their version of a commerce portal, like fatwallet, Ebates, or Mr.Rebates.  PayPal/BillMeLater has the same thing.  Most are between 1% to 5% which isn't a lot but it definitely adds up over time.
