I'd say there's a huge difference between applying a multi-use code to your account and making multiple accounts with the sole purpose of reaping as many $10 PSN/SEN codes as you can. The SEN codes appear to be a recent addition and it's clear that it's probably been abused since they took down the $10 ones already. Prior to that, just about everything else in the store was overpriced and you likely had to pay money out of pocket to get what you wanted, which I have personally done recently myself. I wont get into this too much, but personally, I do think Sony should smarten up and be like Disney and use unique codes for every copy of their movies

I am going to side with the "Forgot to make it cardmember exclusive" camp.

Not even SD knew about it. Also 24 hours doesn't seem like enough time for people to abuse it.

Friend wanted in on some of the Sony goodness and it looks like they set a limit for how many dvds you can register at one time.

Looks like the fun is done for some.


Spoiler


Just incase anybody says I tried to sign up again and there was no friend.

Do Sony Cardholders still get 45 points instead of 30 points? And do Playstation Cards count for this as well, or only Sony Cards specifically?

I am sure this is to slow down the sharing of codes, but three per month! Even three per week would be rough, but 3 per month is pretty...well...weak.

I guess it sucks for people new to this, but it really won't have an impact on people that have been doing all the codes as they come in as they rarely even have 3 new codes a month to enter.

Tweet or call them and tell them to fix it.

It's lame and scares new people away.

I agree - what if you just got a new blu ray player and are stocking up on BD movies? Instead of creating a program that is somewhat resistant to being abused they make it onerous to participate.

All of this said, I was able to enter another 3 codes today (entered 3 codes yesterday). Won't know until tomorrow, but maybe it is 3 per day or week as opposed to 3 per month.

They should just limit non card holders. They are getting something for nothing.

Maybe Sony should make every code one-time use only to shut people like you up. We should be grateful that the system allows us to pretty much get something for nothing. Plus, you should direct your anger at the losers, some probably in this thread, who abused that system to make multiple accounts with these multi-use codes to harvest $10 PSN codes. The timing of those two things are not a coincidence. The system as it is is flawed in my opinion, but they obviously are aware of the fact that the codes are multi-use and have not changed it. At the same time, they also extended a hand of good faith, hoping it wouldn't get abused to the extent that it likely has.. I'd say the same kind of thing happened with PSN Game sharing, and the abuse of that good faith eventually forced Sony's hand to limit that. Sony gets the hate, but it's the bad apples that ruin it for everyone.

I was able to enter three codes on Friday, Saturday and Monday but not Sunday. Not sure why I couldn't enter codes on Sunday - maybe it wasn't a full 24 hours when I tried - but it looks like three per day and not three per month. At least for now...

I wasn't able to enter any yesterday and only one today. Still better than three per month, but it seems pretty inconsistent.

It has been about a week since I could enter any new codes. It is weird, but for most of a week I could enter 3 codes a day and now I have not been able to enter any for the following week.

Still says three per month. We need to band together and make them change it back.

I talked to @SonySupportUSA on Twitter about it and here was what they said:

"I'm not sure why they have it setup like that but I will pass this along to their team in hopes of a future change. -Amanda J"

It's atleast a response. If more people bring attention to it they might change it.

If they can get it to work right, I would have no problems with a three-per-day limit. That would cut down on people creating fake accounts. Three-per-month, though, that is too restricted.
