This offer from Sony will make a great Christmas gift for my “budget-cautious-self”. I have already signed up for it two times in the past and will do it this time around. What is it? It is a credit card from Sony. You apply for it, make one purchase, and get a $150 bonus in a few weeks (the amount is credited directly to your new card). That is all. The last two promotions were for $100. It looks like Sony has sweetened the deal this time around.
There is no sign-up fee, no annual fee, and you don’t have to keep the card once you get and spend the $150 (although I should say it is not a bad cash back card overall — you get 1% back on regular purchases, 3% on all Sony products, and 5% on anything you spend at the Sony online store).
Offer expires March 31st, 2007. Your first purchase must be made by June 30, 2007. An added benefit until January 4, 2007 — get 10% back on your purchases at the Sony online store (instead of the usual 5%). Read more about this offer here.
