Did you happen to hear back from Sony yet? I'm wondering if I should make a purchase before Saturday (at 11:59pm) or if it's already too late.

CapitalOne has really gimped this card...all started with the government putting those watchdogs in place--now they can't make as much without all those crazy fees and interest rates.


Yes the government has no business regulating greed, because we all see how well Reaganomics / the trickle down theory works. :roll:

OnTopic. I was able to cash out all of my current points on a PS3 and they gave me 100 pts per $1 (today).

I might be done with this card....looking for a replacement. Thinking of going with a Disney one or something since I want to take the kids in a few years. Not sure how they work or if they are good.

Yes I was told by 2 different CSR. AS LONG AS THE PURCHASE is made(charged to your card) by/on October 8, 2011....it will be $1 per 100 points. After that it will be $1 per 115 points.

I just sent in my purchase credit yesterday and soon as I get it applied, cancelling the card. My Amazon Rewards Visa is arriving soon.

They are trying to find new ways to nerf the card even more!

Looks like they revamped the website. Runs slower and no new ways to earn points.

Here's how the website is changed:

Wheel of fortune

You can still get the daily 10 points (for now) by going to points plus, then clicking on wheel watchers club in the top left (or just go to http://www.sonyrewar...om/en/home/wof/). Solve puzzle as you would normally. "U GOTTA SEE THIS" is back in the menu bar, but it's still showing a question I already answered. I'm thinking this many not update.

What didn't change

The amount of bonus points for types of merchants and/or sony products from authorized retailers is unchanged.
You can still upload blu ray discs for points.
Looks like rewards available and points for each reward is largely unchanged.

What changed

You can now also upload select DVDs for points.
You can upload certain Sony pictures movie tickets (Scan or picture) for points.

So yes, they technically did add more ways, but it looks like Wheel of fortune points are eventually going to get axed given how hard they are to find. Wish list update also ins't working, so I don't know if that will continue to give points.

During the good ole days I got a PSP, multiple PSP Games, a couple CDs, a stereo receiving, Kmart giftcard, and a Sony Style giftcard which I used to get a PS2. So I'm quite happy with my haul...but, they have now made it so hard to come by points, it just seems like a waste. There are other cards out there that will get me 1-3% cashback, and the money can be spent on anything, not just Sony crap. Huge disappointment though, because it's easy to justify using "free" points to buy something off the site. With cashback, I'd be less likely to use the money on gaming or frivelous things.

Boo CapitalOne. Less Viking commercials, more customer service and rewards.

Me too I got some gaming stuff from them. And I have about 18k points right now. Trying to think what I should get and be done with this card. Anyone one know of any card with good start up offer?

I'm definitely quitting this thing. Spent half my points on an alarm clock, still got 5k left. Not sure what to get though.

They've got the Uncharted 3 bundled with a 320 GB PS3, but not the game by itself yet. Still waiting on that...

The website still isn't quite right still. I can't believe it is taking this long for them to get the bugs out.

Thanks, I picked one up with non-cardholder points before they change it to more points or less than 10000.

I saw this on the fat wallet forum for the Wheel of Fortune/Sony Points forum

Sorry to clutter this thread but I just found this from the FW Finance forum here
You can earn points by registering some Sony DVD/Bluray codes. Unlike other studios, Sony doesn't use unique codes, so it looks like we can share.
Sony cardmember gets 45pts/25pts for each BluRay/DVD registered while non-cardmember gets 30pts/15pts.
The codes can be found on the paper inserts inside the DVD case.

Here are four codes taken from the FWF thread:
JQ9H9YG5 (Zookeeper Bluray)
MVDPEBTT (Bad Teacher DVD)
WZNNNVBC (30 Mins or Less DVD)
CF2EL2GN (Drive DVD)

Here is the list of DVDs/BluRays that you can register to earn points.
You can register the following discs:

sheesh - if you're going to post anything, why not actually post

Thanks for the points bk. I went to redeem for a $50 psn card, but all of those and the ps+ cards have vanished from the site. Hopefully they come back at some point soon.

A big THANK YOU bkjohns1 for this info. I just spent all my points on the LBP2 Move Bundle. Tax and shipping used up the remaining points and doing 10 points a day on WoF was just getting so mundane.

$50 psn card is back in the rewards catalog as a card member exclusive, no sign of ps+ though. The vita first edition bundle has been added too, it is a card member exclusive also. Hopefully they add the other two next week.

The 3G and WiFi systems are up now, 29999 and 24999 points respectively. Both are cardmember exclusives. Some accessories also, but no memory cards (except in the Starter Kit).
