NOTE - This thread was created to serve as an information repository and discussion about the program because other users couldn't keep their referral spam in Referral Central.

DO NOT POST YOUR REFERRAL ID OR REQUEST A REFERRAL IN THIS THREAD!



Sony recently launched a promotion (US only) where members of the Sony Rewards program can refer friends and family to the PS Vita. Any PS Vita purchased AND registered rewards both the referrer and the referee with $20 in PSN credit.

Referrers can earn a MAXIMUM of $200 in PSN credit.

Whoever refers the most confirmed buyers by the end of Feb 2013 will also win $10,000 in Sony Rewards Points.

PS Vita Referral Program Signup and Info:
http://www.urefer.com/sonyvita/

PS Vita Referral Acceptance Page:
http://www.urefer.co...er.php?oid=1831

Sony Rewards Info:
http://www.sonyrewards.com


To MAKE Referrals:
1) You must have received the email from Sony Rewards.
2) Sign up at the Signup link. (If you didn't get the email, signup will fail. It is tied to your PSN ID).
3) Give your referral ID out to friends/family. DO NOT POST IT IN THIS THREAD!
4) Make sure your referral creates a PSN account.
5) Make sure your referral enters their email, PSN ID, and Vita serial number at the acceptance site.

If everything was done correctly, you will each receive a $20 PSN code. There is a maximum limit of $200 (10 codes) in PSN credit per referral account. Any referrals past that will only count towards the grand prize competition.


To ACCEPT a Referral:
1) Get someone's referral ID.
2) Go to the acceptance site linked above.
3) Register with your email, PSN ID, and Vita serial number.

If everything was done correctly, you will each receive a $20 PSN code. You can only get ONE $20 code per Vita serial number.

the only question is how to enter the serial number...i put in random 10 (or was it 11) digits and they always go through. and if i use the vita's s.n it lacks a digit or something and it won't go through...so i probably don't have a valid s/n registered

You need to use the "Serial Number for Registration."

This is an 11 digit letter/number combo that is printed on the sticker on the side of the Vita box. It is also on the Vita to the LEFT of the model number.

You should see it in the following format: XX123456789-PCH1001

XX123456789 is your serial number.
PCH1001 is the model number for a US Vita.

The "SERIAL No." sticker on the right side of the Vita is a shortened version of this number.

Adding random numbers or letters (as recommended in the referral spam thread) will only result in an INVALID registration.

Neither party will get the $20 PSN code as the serial number will fail the check. And since there is a limit of one Vita registration per referee, registering a made up serial number may very well prevent you from re-registering the actual serial number.

Hope this helps.

Your post is really helpful. I also suggested the "Serial # for Reg." is the correct one. If you eliminate the DC4 the "Serial # for Reg." is a shortened version of the "Serial No." for the Vita (I confirmed it with my own Vita). The issue right now is that the form on the website will only take 10 digits(Random or Legit) which is either a glitch or Sony did it to deny our claims later on.

Sony reallly needs to fix / clarify what to do...cause it's not working properly for me and seems like a lot of others...i mean, we're guessing adding an extra digit = going through..but it may very not be,.

I posted this in the old referral spam thread, but didn't get to check the replies before it got deleted (?).

My serial # was accepted, I was just wondering what sort of 'delivery' they meant. Physical or digital? Anyone got any ideas?

I sent out a bunch of links to some friends who didn't get into the promotion. They all signed up and I guess we're getting $20 PSN cards sent in the mail? It says "Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery" but I guess that doesn't necessarily mean they're going to our home addresses.

The site isn't letting me check my account summary though, it just loads to a blank page. Not sure what that's about.
