299.00 PS3 with 6 free BD's CC deal [OK] - Page 3

post #61 of 195
I put in for this about 2 weeks ago now and when I call the number it says they're still reviewing. Sounds like a no!

It was a great deal as a Blu-ray player at 600.00 IMO, so its now a steal IMO.

Does anyone know if the $100/$150 credit card offer is available to Canadians? What about the 5 free BR movies?

The one time -$100 credit offer is for using your Sony card and buying a product $299 or more from the Sonystyle site or instore at a Sonystyle store.
plus you get multiplied sony bonus points added to your sony reward account.

I know it says that, but check out this .

That link says "eligible Sony products". No store is specified. If you look further at the details, it says that any purchase of $299 or more on a single receipt is an eligible purchase. This deal is good anywhere. In fact, it doesn't even have to be a Sony product.

Credit cards in the wrong hands is dangerous, expecially a Sony Card.

I don't recommend opening a credit card account just to save money on this. Unless of course you plan on paying the balance RIGHT AWAY so you wont be charged financing fees.

I stand corrected.

It is still a temptation to some to use it outside the PS3 when you have a big credit line given to you.

I agree totally also dont forget it may take up to 3 months to get your 100 bucks....so pay it off right away or the interest is gonna rack you up if you dont the zero apr for a year.

I understand what you're saying, but the link I posted says otherwise. It's a different offer.

This is what I did. I received my Sony Card today. I called the number in the card documentation and spoke to a CSR. She at first said that my account doid not show the 100.00 credit if 299.00 was spent. I starting saying this sounds like a bait and switch scam and she put me on hold to discuss with a Sup. A Sup. came back online and said that CSR did not give me the correct info. He stated that this account did qualify for the 100.00 credit if 299.00 was spent on Sony product. I then asked if I could buy the Sony product at any retailer to qualify for the $100 credit, he said at any retailer as long as it is Sony product. I asked him to note my account with this info and thank him for the clarification. I called back 5 min. later and talked to a different CSR and asked them the read back to me the last note entered by the Sup. on my account. It was word for word what he and I discussed.

I did not ask about the 0% interest for 12 months being that I really didn't care as I'm paying off as soon as I finish placing my order. I will cancel the card after I get my $100 credit and use my reward points.

So there you have it, at least from what was told to me and my account noted.

But I'm just going to do the safe bet spend a little more and buy it with cash.

I just received my card and called Sony to verify. The woman I spoke with told me that the $100 credit is good on any Sony product purchase of $299 and up from any Sony authorized dealer. However, the 12-month interest free financing is only good at SonyStyle.com.

seems like a crap shoot on this deal the customer service reps dont seem to know a thing a user posted this like a few replies up

http://sonycard.sony.com/sonygateway...ID=&PROMO=DF01

says you should get the $100.00 discount as well as the 12 month no interest

Yeah, I think the customer service reps aren't trained properly. Imagine that?

I got my card in, but havent activated yet
post #82 of 195
Hey guys - just a forewarning to you guys wanting to open the account just for this. I wanted to hop on this deal too, but knowing this helps in the long run when you want to buy something a bit bigger than a PS3 (car, house, motorhome, etc.)

Opening up and closing account quickly can be detrimental to your credit scores. Granted, if you are opening this account to keep long term and use as your main source of credit, then you should be ok.

Just keep in mind that if you open the account, pay it off, then close after getting your $100, you will damage your credit score since the account is a short term account.

not sure what effect the opening of a card has on overall credit score but "closing" the account would be stupid
just pay off the card and don't use it again (or cut it up)
there should be no reason to close the account if you do that

I agree there shouldn't be any reason - but someone else said that they were going to close the account once they got their $100 credit to them... that's why I wanted to point that out.

Both my wife and I have credit scores that are above 800. I have opened maybe 5-8 CC's over the last 2 years where I purchased things on 0% interest and paid them off early and then closed the account. I have never seen a negative mark on my credit and my credit score has never dropped. The only loan I have is on my house. Everything else is paid in cash, even cars. I check my credit score every other month.

Now if someone has a mortgage, car loans, CC's and their credit to debt ratio is high, then opening and closing CC's could possibly effect the credit/credit score. It is better to pay off your CC debt in full every month. It establishes good credit history. Credit is based on on delinquent or missed payments, credit to debt ratio and payment history. I have never seen a CC with no late payments and then closed, a negative mark.

I just called to verify that I could buy the ps3 from anywhere and they said yes. I had them document it into my account like the other poster did and will call tomorrow to verify that it is on there before I activate the card. I recommend everyone else do the same if they plan on buying it from somewhere else.
post #87 of 195
So if I get the card I can still get the 100 discount if I buy it from amazon?
post #88 of 195
I'm gonna have to give them a call then. I ordered from the Sony Style site but its on Backorder and who knows when it will be back in stock.
post #89 of 195
crap...so I was just approved for the card but now I gotta wait two weeks just to get the info? Damn the new ps3 comes out on fri and it sounds like it'll be in limited stock, I hope I can still get one in two weeks.

Edit-well this sucks they are telling me its just for sony.com purchases. I already applied for the card and I dont want to cancel it but damn what am I suppose to do with it now? How did you guys do it cause she pulled up the plocies on the deal and I saw them on the web-site and shes right. So would it hurt my credit to cancel the card if it is not activated?
post #90 of 195
Anyone confirm if you get the 5000 rewards points with the credit card deal?
http://www.sonycard.sony.com/sonygat...x?offerlink=5K
If that's the case, 5000 pts plus 2000 for a PS3 (5 pts for every dollar on sonystyle) should be redeemable for a couple of free blu-ray movies.
