I checked Raise today because I was looking for a cheap PSN card for the new Hidden Gems indie sale and I had a $5 off raise cash in my account that expires tomorrow. Check your accounts and you may have a bonus $5 Raise Cash.


Nothing for me in my account

I got an email about the free $5 Raise cash last Friday. I spent it immediately in case they gave it to me in error!

Thank you! Did the practical thing and bought a Walmart card for ~10% off after using my Cashback credit card.

Trying to sign up a new account with them but not getting the confirmation email.  Is it normal for them to be slow on email responses?

For initial sign-ups it should be instant. You can try going through the website instead of the app or vice versa.

They put you through the ringer when it comes to signing up.

Check your spam folder. 95% of my Raise emails end up in there.

I have no spam folder so nothing to check.  I just tried again today and still nothing.  I have now sent an email to their customer support to see if that works.  I'm not going to attempt to buy Xbox cards though them if I can't receive the emails with the codes from them.

Extra 5% off select brands with code LABORDAY

1 use per household. Expires 9/7/20

Eshop is one of the eligible brands. However, they dropped it from 8% to 6.50% off before coupon.

$50 eshop at 6.50% off is $46.75. After coupon $44.41

 

 

1st time customers are better off using code 10RAISEAF for $10 off your first purchase of $50+. Also, don't forget to sign up through a referral link for the free $5 in raise cash.

Apologies if this info was elsewhere in the thread, but where might one get a referral link?

Their security checks can be finicky and flag you for any discrepancies between the account and credit card/paypal info. You will need to contact customer service so they can verify your account manually. Then you should be good to go.

 

Raise customer service number is:

888-578-8422

Mon - Fri: 8am - 7pm CT

Sat: 9am - 5pm CT

Closed today, though, and the only reason I was trying to buy was to get my friend the BL3 season pass on PSN. I just bought her the Super Deluxe from Amazon for the same price instead.

48h wait from Amazon vs instant gratification from Raise. Sucks to be Raise, because all my cards have a middle initial and they don't have a spot for that and I can't be bothered to run their fucking obstacle course on this.

My cards have a middle initial, and I have never had any problems buying anything from Raise.

That's the only thing I can think of that caused my purchase to fail. Everything else was exact.

Like daisy said, raise doesn't play around. Had to phone verify and they basically did a credit check asking me questions that are true or not. It was a hassle.

Yikes, those percentages took a hit to make this barely a sale.

Just signed up and got a $50 eshop for $40. Not sure if I'll ever use the site again but not a bad deal.

that might be the worse they've done to eShop for one these sales yet, usually they only drop it down to ~5-6% discount before the code instead of the normal 6-8% discount

So I made an account through OP's referral link and tried to buy $5 eshop with the raise cash which came to $1 and $50 eshop with coupon codes which was $39.10 on separate transactions and they cancelled both almost immediately and banned my account for no reason so what gives?

Their security checks are very strict and likely flagged your account in error.

You will need to call them to confirm your info. The number is:

Guess I haven't purchased anything in a minute, so they threw $5 at me to entice me - and it worked. Picked up a $25 PSN for $17.23. The current percentages on the PSN cards looked to be in the 11% range, so not too shabby (especially vs earlier when I checked).
