Anyone else have issues getting a SonyRewards confirmation e-mail? I set up my account earlier today, but am still waiting for ANY e-mail from them to validate my e-mail address so I can complete my account. Very frustrating - never had this problem before, not sure why I'm not getting anything from them now. And I mean NOTHING. And yes, I've checked my trash and my Spam folders, and they're both void of anything from Sony.

Very frustrating, as I'd love to take advantage of this - I know I'll be purchasing some stuff on the PSN here in the near future, and would love to get $50 back for it.



I was using Firefox when I first sent a request to validate my email address. It didn't work. I kept getting an error message. So I tried Google Chrome. I requested they resend my validation email and I received it almost instantly.

I didn't get any error messages for the confirmation e-mail. The site would say it was sent, but nothing would show up in my inbox. I just kept clicking resend every once in a while, and it eventually showed up.

I guess two business days is about right, because I got my e-mail about the bonus this morning.

Too bad the Rewards site is down.

FYI if you watch Wheel of Fortune, you can get 10 points daily by entering the bonus puzzle solution online at Sony Rewards. The puzzle for last night (enter today) is The Big Picture.

wahh, I thought they took wheel of fortune puzzles out long ago, along with jeopardy. haha I'm so out of it. Do we still get points for updating wishlist monthly?

Weird, so it wasn't that the site was down, it's just not playing nice with Chrome all of a sudden. Tried accessing the site with Firefox and it worked.

Yeah, I'm having email issues too. I was frustrated at first, but then I tried sending a message through the "contact us" link and was told I don't have permission to view that page. Now I can't help but laugh.

I'll try a different browser like some of you have and see what happens.

Well, managed to FINALLY, after screwing around with FF, IE AND Chrome, managed to get my account verified. Got my application approved. Now just waiting on the card.

Hope I don't regret this. I suspect I'll use it a few times, and then forget about it entirely. Or just cancel it after a few months.

Not a bad deal! I always pay off any balance before interest hits anyway, so the APR doesn't effect me. Thanks for posting this.

Made my first purchase this past Saturday (10/6), and my codes were both email over to me today. Couldn't have been easier. Use the PSN credit to buy New Little Kings Story (Vita) and 2/3 of Retro City Rampage.

So glad my wife got approved for one, too :-)

I just activated my card last night and added $5 to my psn wallet. Also when trying to link to sony rewards it said it already was linked. I'm thinking about added $10 to my wallet and getting retro city rampage and using the $50 psn on an additional year of playstation + but I'm not sure yet. I'd like to have borderlands 2 as well but I know it's not on psn and don't know if it will be.

Got my $50 PSN voucher today, but not my year of plus. Working with customer service to make sure I get both.

so made my first purchase on 9/28, linked cc to sony rewards account prior to that, and no email or discount when I place either item in my cart.

probably should contact them do you think? probably sony rewards I would think

^At this point, ya I'd contact them. Definitely contact Sony Rewards. Also check your junk/spam folder, that's where mine was.

I got my card and attempted to link it on Tuesday, but it said it was already linked. Called CS and she said it was linked. Made a purchase and today I receive an email saying:

Thank you for using your new PlayStation®Card from Capital One®.
The more you use it, the more points you’ll rack up! blach blah If you haven't already linked your card etc.

Wondering if I should contact them again..

Same exact thing happened to me. Got the e-mail this morning (with no codes).

My guess would be no.

However. What you could do would be buy $100 worth of points on PSN. This would net you 1000 points on your rewards. if you then spent the $100, you'd be eligable for the $20 back. The 1000 points would get you a $10 card on Sony Rewards. Then you'd get your $50 promotion, for a total of $80.

Spend $100, get $80 back. If I actually had $180 worth of stuff I wanted on PSN, I might do this.

Spending the free $50 in PSN credit counts toward the $100, redeeming the 1 year of PS+ doesn't though since it's a code and not $ from your wallet.

Well... you have a year to sit on that $50 to see if something worthwhile pops up. If not, then just use it to renew PS+ then. No need to burn it up now and regret it some time between now and next year.

i have the PS card since April. just a note for those planning to get. the points on Sony Rewards are awarded every end of month billing cycle, in my case, every 15th of the month. I use the card on psn games (i buy 10-50$ monthly), and also on daily expenses (food, gas, etc), which rewards me about 10-20$ worth of points monthly. i pay the card full every bill, so i pay no interest.

when using points of sony rewards site, i can't seem to get the psn cards on daytime, always sold-out, but available every midnight till about 8am pst.

Either the link in the email or sign in to the rewards site and hit my account. Then hit playstation card. Then on the right there is a box that says,"already a card member, link your account".

Maybe I'm already linked, then, because all that comes up for me is a list of the benefits (10x points on... etc).

Thanks, I was wondering when I would start seeing the points.

Does anyone know when this offer ends and what the spending minimum is in order to get PSN+ and the $50 code? Thanks.
