You may have seen the mailers, and it’s true. We’ve introduced our very own PlayStation credit card to offer fans a new way to show off their PlayStation pride and earn reward points towards the purchase of PlayStation and SONY products.

We’ve even sweetened the pot with a special introductory offer. Starting today until December 31, 2008, you could save $150 on the purchase of a PLAYSTATION 3 this holiday. There are a couple ways to do this. You can go to to www.sony.com/newpscard to get instant approval for your card, and an immediate $150 credit when you purchase a PS3 directly through the website.

Or you can go www.sony.com/getpscard to apply for the card and upon receipt of the card, use it at any authorized PlayStation retailer to purchase a PS3. The $150 credit will show up on your billing statement.

The holidays just got merrier. Happy shopping.

  • So use it for a year and pay off the balance and move on – i was thinking of applying. Not sure if i'll use the card after a year though with that interest.

  • Sony has offered this type of promotion for the last couple of years. If you sign up for a Sony credit card, (this year, a Playstation card) you get get a deal on a PS3 or a TV. They did this last Christmas, and then extended the deal up until mid last year. The one item to note on this card, you have 0 interest for the first year, and then it defaults to 29.99%!!! The rate is beyond ridiculous if carry a balance past the introductory period or use it for anything else and carry a balance. Now if you pay off the account or transfer the balance before the introductory period ends, then it may be a decent deal. The card itself is from Chase/JPMorgan.

    Default APR on the Playstation card is prime + 26.99%, but will not exceed 29.99%. Right now you can get a credit card from the largest bank at 0% for the first year, then afterwards it's prime + 3% (assuming you remain in good standing) …just to give you an idea of how much interest they'll charge you for the Playstation card.

  • With $150 credit pay it off before the year is up and you will still have saved that $150 if you dont already own a PS3 this is a great deal (as long as you pay it off before your year)
