Questions about Sony Card

I was browsing the Sony website yesterday looking at the PS4 and I saw it mention a Sony Card. I had to check it out. The Sony website says you get a $100 credit after your first purchase if you make your first purchase within 90 days. I checked all over the app to see if there are other rules about the $100 credit but saw none. I figured I'd pay netflix with the card then get the $100 credit and put it towards the PS4. So I did the app and it said instant approval for $3,000 limit. 

 

Today I wandered over to the Capital One website (who the card is through) and it says you get 5,000 points after your first purchase and they can only be redeemed at the sonyrewards website. I don't see a PS4 available on sonyrewards so I'm thinking my plan isn't going to work out. 

 

Is it because I did the app directly on the Sony website that mine doesn't mention points? Can they really say $100 credit and then just give you points for a website that doesn't have what you want? I'm gonna feel stupid if its just points. Plus I'd be pretty angry at Sony and would likely end up with an xbone.

Re: Questions about Sony Card

Here's the verbiage from the Sony website:

* In order to receive your $100 credit you must make at least one purchase within 90 days of account opening. The credit will appear on your monthly Sony Card statement within 8-12 weeks of your first purchase. To be eligible for the statement credit, the account must be open and in good standing at the time the credit will be applied to the account. This statement credit will not count as a payment to your account. Please continue to make your minimum payments.
Limited time offer is for new Sony Card accounts only and is not available on existing accounts. Credit approval required. Terms and conditions apply. The Sony Card is issued by Capital One, N.A., pursuant to a license from Visa U.S.A., Inc.

From all appearances, its a statement credit.

Re: Questions about Sony Card

So it sounds like I can use it for anything I want then? 

 

I'm still fairly new to credit cards. I've just never seen one like this where Capital one says one thing and Sony says another.

Re: Questions about Sony Card

I believe the $100 is a sign up bonus. The points are business as usual. I always take a screenshot for sign up bonuses 'check in case' Smiley Wink

@bk510

Was the $100 sign up bonus offered when you applied?

Re: Questions about Sony Card

Yup. the $100 credit was stated right there on the Sony website with an app button. I wouldn't have apped if it  said 5,000 points at sonyrewards website. If its not a legit $100 credit I'm gonna make a call because I think that's bit of false advertising. I WANT to give the money right back to Sony by buying the PS4 lmao if they say I can't.

@bk510

When you signed up did it say the bonus would be points? Or were they saying $100 credit back then?
