Same here. I'm wondering if my Sony Style account isn't associated with my Sony Rewards account, because it looks like you register the products with Sony Style.

I registered 5 products and got the 2,500 points :D

The key is to do step 3 in post #21:

I looked all over and cannot find the link to invite 4 friends.



There is no link, it's a pop up............go to the sony main page, and scroll down all the way to the bottom, on the left you will see a sony emblem, now look all the way to the right, there you will see invite a friend.

I liked this thread the first time it was posted here: http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=178010

I guess you want to take the ALL the credit.



I liked that thread too, unfortunately the op did not post all of the info in the main thread, and most of the good info was strung out through multiple pages, too confusing

And yeah, I like getting all of the credit, I'm just rolling in my piles of credit:whee: Sheeeesh try to help people out.......

Why wait for it to be on the list?, order it over the net from an authorized sony retailer, or run down to the nearest store locally, buy it with your sony card and fill out the purchase credit form, and the total will be deducted from your card.

They stopped giving me my points for updating my wish list months ago, and its been over a year since I got my card and still haven't received my 5000 free points. I'll call them one of these days. :/

It is my main card I use, my rate is the same as the OP's (although I pay it in full every month so that really doesn't matter to me) but what I really like was the free year end summary. My other cards charge several dollars for one.

Thanks for this thread! All of the other threads were really confusing. This one makes it al simple

Sitting on 3500 points now. Seems too good to be true, but basically once I get 6000 points I could order Little Big Planet off Amazon with the card, fill out the rebate form and receive the cash back ($60) from my points?

I apologize if this has been asked and answered already but do the advantages of the Sony Card also apply to the Playstation card? It's not really clear what the difference is between the two.

Try registering to Sony Rewards with the card and see if it goes through.

(You arent too far from me, about 1 hr. Visit the new Sonic they put in last week? We went a couple days after they opened and we cant wait to go back.)
If its free, its for me!!

I don't have either yet, I am trying to decide which one to register. It doesn't really help me to decide if I have to try it to find out :P.

No, I didn't realize there was a sonic nor have I ever been to one. I don't really get around town much, I'm pretty much always over by Western since that's where I live and attend classes.

The Sony and Playstation cards both work for the sonyrewards website. They're basically the same thing since they're both Chase cards.

this is a good thread...I'll prolly do enough to get a $25 gift card and call it quits,only because I have enough cc debt and have gone towards only using my debit card instead...but if I didn't I would definitely get the Sony CC as well....Good,informative post OP!!!

Quick question. When I go to the sony rewards site, it looks blank. I didn't know if its just my computer. I will try another one.

Just want to add my own thanks to the OP for putting all this information together in once place. I already had a Sony card, but I had no idea there's all these different ways to get extra points. Great stuff.

And speaking of my Sony card- did anyone else do the thing in November/December 2008, where if you spend so much on the card they give you 1500 additional free points? I know I spent enough on the card, but I still didn't get my 1500 extra points yet, and so I was wondering if anyone else already got theirs already or if it's taking a while for everyone (by the way, I noticed normally when the chase cards do these extra points promos e.g. get double points when you fill up your car or whatever, they ask you to register/sign up for the deal online, but this promo never asked me to do that...)

What's the difference between the Sony Card and the Playstation Card? Also, how is this credit card anyways? How does it compare to, say, bank issued credit cards? Looking to apply for my 2nd credit card :)

EDIT: Apologize for asking the same question, but I just don't get the difference between the 2 cards. Are they basically the same card with different artwork?
