Sony Rewards: Get Games, PlayStation Store Cash, and More

Posted by Kristine Steimer // Sr. Community Specialist -

We want to thank you, our devoted community, for your incredible support throughout the years. That’s why today, we’re pleased to announce a new, PlayStation-specific integration into the Sony Rewards program, where you can earn points by doing what you love. (PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Sony)

Very nice, but I guess it's only for the US. :(
Outsider-G  +   576d ago
Yeah :(. Thought Canada would be included in this.

"We're sorry, you are not eligible to link your account at this time.

This program is only available to users in the United States. Thank you for your understanding"

yeah, thx.....

It makes no sense NOT to include Canada.

The whole "US is the centre of the universe" makes me laugh.

I guess they are testing it out before rolling it out to the rest of thr world
sobekflakmonkey  +   576d ago
It'll come to us folks in Canada soon enough, bringing it out in the US first is just a way of testing it out first, making sure they have everything in order, not to worried about it, got tons of Blu-rays I can register lol

I've been with SONYRewards since April now (U.S.). If you guys are able to sign up for a Playstation credit card, do it. It's the ultimate way to get a ridiculous amount of points.

As some of you know, this points system is basically 1000pts = $10, but every $1 dollar you spent equates to 1pt. While that requires you to spend a great deal to make it worthwhile, SONY loves giving away points on their rewards site.

Take this for example; I have yet to buy PS+. It cost $49.99 in the PSN store. Just for making purchases on the PSN store with your Playstation Card you get 10x the points. Now the Rewards site continues to add on to that. 5x points on your first PSN purchase after linking the accounts. 1x points on all PSN store purchases period. That's already 16x points I will be getting for buying PSN+ totaling up to 800pts! THEN the Rewards website adds another 250 points for buying a year of PS+, making the grand total 1050pts just for spending $50!

Why did you have to show that to me? I already spend enough on games as it is. Looks like I can cancel my other credit cards though. :-)
Emilio_Estevez  +   576d ago
That's been around for quite some time now.
Clunkyd  +   576d ago
Yeah, Ive been a sony rewards member for about 5 months now and its awesome. So far I have $15 in points within that time frame.
Hicken  +   576d ago
I'm in!

.. unless it's a credit card.

Edit: Now I wish I'd waited on that last year of Plus I bought. But what the hell. There'll be plenty of stuff I'll be buying off the Store.

You're gonna have to buy a lot to be able to get any rewards.

$1 spent = 1 point
1000 points = $10 gift card

It's gonna be stuff like signing up for PS+ that really get enough points to be worth anything.
Hicken  +   576d ago
Well, with the PS4 on the horizon, that shouldn't be too tough. Not to mention I seem to have shifted to getting most of my Vita games digitally.
TeflonHahn  +   576d ago
It says sign up and link your PSN and get 100 points. I signed up and got nothing -_-
Sarobi  +   576d ago
It takes a while for it to show up
TeflonHahn  +   576d ago
Ahhhh. Thanks man! Smh. I'm so used to instant gratification that I couldn't at leats practice patience. Shame on me lol.
TimeSkipLuffy  +   576d ago
I have to spent $1000 to get $10... well better than nothing I guess XD I'm in ^^ I should save some money for my first PSN purchase and earn x5 points... maybe some PS4 games + a year PS+ :3
Rynx  +   575d ago
While that may sound ridiculous that SONYRewards website offers plenty of opportunities to maximize the points you get. Like their PointsPlus program where if you shop through certain retailers online you can multiply your points. Like Best Buy and Target where you get 5x and 7x points per dollar spent respectively. It only works if you follow through their external link from the SONYRewards website.

I don't live in the US. The only way for me to earn points is by buying from PSN Store X'D

looks very similar to xbox reward system, hopefully this is more profitable than that in 2 years of doing surveys and shit every year, i made like 400-500 microsoft points still better than nothing i suppose
