Damn, I need to cancel my gamestop orders then. I have a TON of Sony Reward points so I got some PSN codes. Have exactly $60 now so planning on getting two years this way now.

I was thinking buying from Sony directly would be best with their Buy $60 get $10 credit, but seems like it won't let you buy multiples (in one transaction) of the subscription. Just a heads up.


Am pretty sure the $60 doesn't have to be in a single transaction. When I've done this in the past as long as you accrue the total spend amount from your SEN wallet by the offer end date (12/3 here) they email you the code a few days after the end.

That has been my experience as well - now lets hope this thing goes live in 20 so I can go to bed :)

How do we even know it'll count toward it? And you'd have to spend an extra 5 (well, not SPEND exactly but you can only add in 5, 10, 20, and 50 increments, so you'd have to add 10 and then 50 for the 59.98-no tax- and then add another 5 to buy whatever avatar item or whatever for an extra buck or two to push you over the 60). Will it only work if you buy with funds already in your wallet? Can anyone verify from a past promotion?

They did the spend 50 get 10 around Halloween.  Funds have to be in your wallet and then spent during the promotion period.  I did this twice over the course of the two weeks or so and and got my 20 dollar voucher via email a while later.  I didn't put all the funds in my wallet at once and i didn't spend it all at once, but I kept track of what I spent and sure enough Sony sent me the 20 for free.

i would really appreciate that! I just ordered my PS3 today...I had an Xbox 360 for all of this last generation. Feel free to send me a PM.

PM sent, have fun with your PS3.

The way the past "spend XXX, get XX back" promotions have worked is they count items purchased through the Playstation Store from funds in your wallet. Then at the end of the promotional period they tally it up and if you reached the threshold then you'll get a code a little while later to add to your wallet.

Yep, I spend $50 during the last promo, a $50 PSN card, and I got the $10 back.

I know me too, and this is having worked 4 hours of black friday madness at target AND having to go back in for another 8.5 tomorrow at 10am :(

 

Thanks for all the responses guys. I'm probably going to go with amazon for convenience sake. Also, I think y'all are right obviously (having much more experience than me-haven't own a PS3 since before ps+ went live) but when I searched on the website for items eligible I don't think the ps + subscriptions cam up (then again, there were like 2,000 result and I didn't go through all of them)

Oh, ok. I guess that's straight verification. This is an automatic add to your account though. Is that how it worked before? They don't actually send you a card but add it straight to whatever time's left on your subscription, I thought

Oh, so the $60 doesn't have to be in one transaction? Whew, makes me feel better about passing on Groupon.

nope, just have to make $60 total in purchase from SEN between when the promotion started and 12/3 midnight PST.

The problem with buying from Sony is that you can't hold onto the code and wait for another "Buy 12, get 3 extra months" promo.

I can not even tell after adding the code if it extended my plus. They should have a better tracking of this on the playstation. I can see what day it ends. But I did not look at it before adding it.

I'm glad I got one from GS and NewEgg. I couldn't wait any longer and potentially miss out.

Damn. My second order (code) from GS went through tax free as well.

 

I don't know what's goin' with Sony's site. It's down all of a sudden now.
