In Good Deal on Sony PlayStation 3 (Update) and Getting My PlayStation 3 $150 Rebate I talked about my purchase of a Sony PlayStation 3 game console/Blu-ray player. I took advantage of a Sony online offer of a $150 rebate on the $399 player for anyone who successfully applied for a new Sony PlayStation credit card prior to the expiration of the offer at midnight, December 31, 2008.
As I explained in the earlier posts, I had some trouble jumping through all the correct hoops to get the rebate. As can be told from the heavy volume of comments my earlier posts generated, a number of other people also had trouble jumping through all the right hoops in the right order and at the right time.
I ultimately managed to do the right things to get the Sony Rewards website, through which I bought the PS3, to grant me access to the form to be used to apply for the rebate. That was on December 19, 2008. Today (February 8, 2009) I finally got email indicating that my application for a rebate has been approved:
So I expect the $150 rebate to show up in my PlayStation Card account by the end of this week.
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
