Today I received a strange package in mail. It was a can, very much like a regular aluminum can for soda drinks but inside it had an offer from Sony Rewards program. This is the first time I receive a promotional material in a can so not surprisingly it got my attention.
In that “canned” offer the folks from Sony Rewards suggest to register my Sony Credit card at www.sony.com/sonycard/flyfree, spend $500 before March 31, 2008 and receive 10,000 bonus points. This is not all the fun though. After I receive my 10,000 points I can spend $300 more from April through June and receive one companion voucher for a round trip US flight - free with a purchase of an adult ticket (more details here).
The tickets have to be purchased in advance from Lifestyle Vacation Incentives a Sony partner in this promotion, so my guess the prices will probably not be all that low, however even w/o the ticket 10,000 points in rewards for spending $500 on stuff you would buy anyway is probably worth it. Sony claims that 10,000 is worth $100. Just to get a better idea, 10,000 points will buy you a home stereo like this or a 2GB video MP3 player like this from the Sony Rewards online shop.
I quickly checked my Sony Card records and have found that I canceled all of the cards I had, otherwise I would probably give this deal a shot. If you have not got rid of your Sony Card like I did though, I suggest you to visit the website above and take a look at this promotion. Sounds like a pretty hot deal to me!
