SOE Triple Station Cash Deal 12/21/12 ONLY + Walmart SC Card Bonus

NOW OVER!

Got notification that Sony Online Entertainment will be holding a Triple Station Cash promotion for one day only on 12/21/12, from 12:01 am to 11:59 pm PDT.
Apparently this was advertised in an email to SOE subscribers, but this is a deal open to everyone.
This seems to be part of the SOE 12 Days of Holidays promotion, but I honestly can't make heads or tails of what the deals actually are, however this deal seems to be the crown jewel.
I am new to the station cash economy my self, but I know this will certainly come in handy for SOE titles including the free-to-play title Planetside 2, which the funds can be used to unlock weapons early and purchase cosmetics (ZEBRA PRINT ALL THE THINGS.)

To make things even sweeter it looks like Walmart offers $15/1,500 Station Cash cards like most retailers do, but their game cards offer a BONUS 500 SC giving you a total of 2,000 SC.
So that's 6,000 SC ($60 worth) for just $15 if you buy the card early and then redeem the card on December 21st, not a moment sooner!
Looks like you have to go in store for this offer and make sure it has a fat BONUS 500 SC label on it, shown below.
The walmart.com eCard unfortunately does not offer the same bonus, so stay away from that.

Walmart.com 1,500 SC card listing

I will likely trudge my way to my local Super Walmart tomorrow to confirm.
Looks like they are using old artwork for the card on the webbsite (RIP Starwars Galaxies) but the promotion still seems valid.

UPDATE 12/14/12: Got my 1,500+500 SC card with no hassle in the PC games section of Walmart. Same graphics on the card and everything.

UPDATE 12/20/12: For those who play Planetside 2, they are also doing a double XP event from 12/21/12 throuh 1/2/13 to make the grinding of certs a little more bearable. It's possible to get up to a 400% XP boost, but that requires a paid subscription and buying boosts. Just wanted to add that tidbit in and of course the triple station cash promotion hits at 12:01 am on the 21st, PST.

UPDATE 12/21/12: Deal is now live! I just submitted my own Walmart SC card and got 6,000 SC as planned. Have fun everybody.

UPDATE 12/21/12: Deal is now over!

And for those that cannot find any of these at WalMart, you can still get the NS-11 Platinum (which I believe costs 700SC in game) with GameStop Planetside 2 branded SOE cards.

I always like to get these for EQ2 so I may pick up one or two, started PlanetSide 2 as well so that's just another reason for me to buy some. Thanks for the heads up.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Nice! Gonna pick up two cards for PlanetSide 2. Picked up two GameStop cards for the vehicle bundle just a week ago. No deal at the time, but I got no regrets.

Unfortunately that guy was swamped with requests and has no cards left. Which is why I'd like to say here that I am looking for 3 Walmart SOE cards, can use paypal and will give a small tip.

They started a day early for some reason. Triple Station Cash rocks, probably pick some up for PoxNora.

You can't buy any of the DC Universe expansions anymore with SC, correct? If all I was interested in was DC Universe and possibly Planetside 2 what will SC buy me? Thanks in advance.

Listen to the Checkmate Arcade video game podcast! Also available on ITunes, Stitcher Radio, or YouTube.

Screw Walmart. Went to three locations that "said" they have them in stock, 2 of them don't even have shelf space for it anymore and the third one does, but its been "stuck" on a truck to be unloaded since Wednesday that they won't get to till tomorrow. Lazy fraks. Atleast when I worked at bestbuy in HS, we had to unload a truck ASAP within a day.

SC is the only way i buy the DLC (we are talking PC version here). Just use the in-game Market. Will be deducted right from your SC wallet. May want to wait for the sales that come around about once a quarter. can be as much as 50% off.

Or... you buy Station cash when its a 3X sale, then buy the dlc when that is on sale for great savings!

No 1500+500 cards at my Walmart they all suddenly went missing on my visit today so settled for the 1000+200 cards got 4 of them so 3600 sc each card still isn't too bad not quite 6000 for each card though.

Thought I was out of luck, but was able to find the last one at my Wally Wold. Many thanks, OP! I usually find out about the double and triple station cash deals the day after.
