I still can't order the $10 code.

 

Don't know why they're trying to charge me $8 when I have enough points to pay for the code.

 

I ordered one in the past a few years back, but that shouldn't be a problem. Back then I didn't need to pay anything to use my points like it's telling me now.

 

Edit: Nevermind, I log in tonight and see it has a blue cardmember exclusive banner on the $10 code offer, it wasn't there before. Hopefully I can catch it the next time it's available to everyone. It seems like they only let non cardmembers in on those at certain times.....at least that's how they did the non PSN specific codes in the past.

 

EDIT: Ok, there seems to be two thumbnails to the $10 PSN Code depending on how you get to the offer, one with a cardmember banner, and another without. You'd think they'd catch something like that.

I tried to do this but after completing the first game, it told me that the offer expired on March 10 (which is today by the way) so it seems like it should be valid through midnight.  Any suggestions?  I still need 25 points to get 500.


Selling on Amazon as Gaming Cheaply

 

Please feel free to PM me if there is a game you want to purchase cheaper than Amazon Warehouse or Gamestop.

Is this the item that you're looking at?  There's a $10 PlayStation Store code item and a $10 Sony Entertainment Network code item.  I think only the latter is limited to cardmembers.

woah, didnt know this had another thread...been following a dead one lol. But yeah, I ordered a 5 dollar code and never received it. It took the points from my account and I got a confirmation email. Some people in the other thread said there is a link in your account that will show you the code, i have seen no such thing. I ordered it before they sold out. I contacted them and they told me to contact playstation because it wasnt their fault(which makes no sense), I contacted playstation and they said to contact sony rewards...so im just running around in circles with no code

Is this the item that you're looking at?  There's a $10 PlayStation Store code item and a $10 Sony Entertainment Network code item.  I think only the latter is limited to cardmembers.

This morning there were two different links to the $10 PSN code you just posted, one was shown as an exclusive, the other was not, however both required me to pay $8 for the code despite having enough points.

 

Ok, and now as I try to link the different thumbnails, I see they've updated the exclusive code from a PSN with a cardmember banner to the Sony Entertainment Network code with a banner which is linked from the "Show me what I can get now" option.

 

The non-exclusive $10 PSN code is accessible from the "Browse All Products" option then "Playstation Digital Products" (what you just linked), however after I put it in my cart, it will take me to a security answer screen where I have to enter my favorite television show, and after doing so I'm greeted to a checkout saying I have to pay $8.00 to get it despite having enough points.

 

I'm essentially locked out of both it and every deal as I see that trying to purchase some earbuds for 999 points requires me to pay $7.99 to unlock those points at check out, despite having 1,005 total.

 

Looks like I'm gonna have to call support, and soon because I see my points will expire at the end of the month.

If you pre order and purchase Infamous Second Son from gamestop you'll get a code on your receipt for 500 points(worth $5). I already pre ordered 3, plan on returning two.

Ok I finally got the spider man site to work. I was using cyberghost free to connect to the UK, didnt work. While connected I decided to use Hola Unblocker extension set to canada, worked.

This worked perfectly with Firefox. Thanks volt!

 

SR link wont work without the unity program though so make sure you install it if youre experiencing the same problem.

 

 

PS: Im now getting the we cannot complete transaction error lol. I have more than 1000 points and cant use them. Ill try later

I wonder how many of these a person could possibly get away with...as much as they can afford? I assume Gamestop can't prevent you from buying multiple copies or from returning them, right?

Nope. If you did it on a CC you'd probably not have to pay anything. Though if they do have the ability to tell when the points have been used that could create an issue; the points are part of the purchase and so using them prior to the return could be considered equivalent of an open-box return (trade-in) instead of a refund situation.

 

Then again it's not like you can't just take the copies to Walmart or wherever to get your money back that way.

I don't even think it matters if you redeem it. I preordered Killzone and bought it the day it came out, a few days later I realized I didn't want it, and when I returned it the gamestop employee asked if I wanted the receipt because there were codes on it.

The point was pre ordering second son to get 500 points, so pre ordering numerous copies and returning second son is what he meant.

I'm Not justifying the stupidity of the return fraud suggestion!

This is the BS response I got from support:

 

Thank you for contacting Sony Rewards Online Support.

We are currently researching your issue.  We appreciate your patience as we try to resolve.  In the meantime, we recommend that you discontinue trying to place orders on Sony Rewards until we can resolve.


Kind regards,

The Sony Rewards Team

 

 

Now it says that the $10 code is sold out. I don't want them to come back and tell me I couldn't order it because it was sold out when people here were ordering the code after I posted that it would not let me order. How the heck do you "sell out" of digital codes for a digital store? This is pretty lame.

I have been in contact with them for dayssss. I ordered a code, took the points, never got the code in an email. Their support is terrible and just gives the most basic and generic answers. At first they told me to contact playstation for some reason lol

I'm still trying to order either a 10 or 20 dollar code on another account using 500+card to save on 5 bucks and it still won't let me.
10 is sold out now, but still no luck on 20.

 

Either PSN card ordering is busted, or they don't want to allow the same card on 2 accounts.
