After almost five years at Citibank, the Sony Card got back in the game with Bank One now known as Chase and now it rests in the hands of Capital One. One of the most requested brand credit cards is the Sony Card and we welcome it back. The old card was hard to find out how many points you had online and that is supposed to be changed with the new version. You can go online and view your point balance and redeem points for Sony merchandise with as little as 1,000 points. If you purchase tons of Sony merchandise like the VAIO desktops and notebooks, Sony networking equipment, Walkmans, Sony Handycam, memory sticks, etc then this card is definately something you can add up points with with 3 points per every dollar spent on Sony merchandise. All other products or services are one point per dollar. Also if you attend concerts and other events this new improved Sony card offers complimentary ticket protection! With this card you earn more rewards than ever up to 5 points at MySony.com. This is the card to have before you order your Playstation 3 or Wii. Buy your Sony Playstation 3 with Blu Ray Technology and then purchase all your games with this card to make the maximum points.
The Sony Card is a dream come true for anyone interested in the latest technology. The Sony Card is a Visa credit card with impressive benefits. As soon as one’s application is approved, he receives 5,000 bonus points. That benefit translates into an automatic $50 Sony Gift card. One can earn additional points simply by using his Sony Card. Each dollar spent in a qualified Sony retailer translates into 500 bonus points. Each dollar spent at a restaurant or at the movies qualifies for 300 bonus points. Each dollar spent on other items ranging from groceries to gasoline earns 100 bonus points for the cardholder. A cardholder can redeem his points for any of the cutting-edge products offered by Sony. Music lovers can redeem their points for their favorite artists. Video game aficionados can use their points for the latest releases, the newest systems, or state-of-the-art controls. Movie buffs can exchange points for pictures. Sony Card members can buy the additional points they need to acquire that “must-have” item. Rewards Catalog point limits do not apply to Sony Card members.

My Sony Rewards Tips:
- We noticed there were two versions of the Sony Rewards Card several months ago. I think they have just one card now but you may want to check around before applying. Last time we checked the card above had the most points per spend but Sony reduced those points on all the cards from what we can tell.
- You can earn frequent flyer miles by using AA.com Shopping Mall then clicking on the Sony Style link
- Join My Sony Rewards program to earn extra Sony points just for reading their weekly newsletters and clicking on the links
- Join the Best Buy Reward Zone program to earn more miles if you buy Sony electronics at Best Buy stores.
- More points for your dollar spent with Sony Products
