Where can I find the RLS?
What is the RLS?
The RLS stands for Retail Loyalty Site. It is where employees of certain retail establishments can learn about the Playstation family of products by reading and taking quizzes to earn points to get prizes.
Do I have to be a retail employee to get this stuff?
YES. You now must provide proof of employment PRIOR to getting any items sent to you from the RLS. There is no more sneaking in and getting free stuff before you are found out. If you do not provide proof of employment you will not get anything.
Congratulations! You are registered on the PlayStation® Retail Loyalty Site.
You can access advanced details and behind-the-scenes information about PlayStation products and earn points by learning and demonstrating your PlayStation knowledge. In order to redeem points for valuable items in the catalog and to be included in quarterly sweepstakes drawings, you must verify your employment with a qualified retail employer. You can verify your employment now or wait and complete your verification later.
Please allow 2-3 weeks for verification approval. You will be notified via email as soon your verification has been processed.
How do I know if I am verified, and how can I get verified?
When you sign up you are by default unverified. On the top right of the screen you will see where it says "Welcome (your name)". Under that it says STATUS: and will say either verified or unverified. Click on that and it will tell you what you need to do to get verified.
So say I have a job with a place like Best Buy now and I quit - can I still get this stuff?
No, if you are no longer an employee of an approved retail chain you are no longer eligible for the program. Sony does check on its own - a friend of mine quit in early December and by the end of December his account was deleted. There is also a link inside the RLS to terminate your account once you are no longer eligible.
Sounds great! How many of these quizzes can I take per day?
There is no limit as to how many quizzes you can take in a day. I suggest doing the oldest quizzes first before they are taken down.
How do I get teh good stuff and new games a few days after they come out?
You have to reach Advocate status first, this is how you do it:
Do you visit the RLS monthly, weekly, or even more often to see what's new with PlayStation® and sharpen your selling skills? Then you're a RLS Advocate! Read on to find out more.

We have not seen any "Playstation Home Events" or "events in your area" yet.
Whats the best way to communicate with the RLS?
This is up for debate, as sometimes one way works great and the other sucks - other times it is switched and sometimes there is no good way. You can contact them thru the site directly, and they do have a Twitter account:
They do announce when items are put up on the Twitter account, so it would be a good idea to follow them.
