Sony, How do I Love thee? Let me count the Rewards!

So on Black Friday I ordered the $118 Sony blu-ray player from Walmart. Of course, I used Bing for $17.70 cashback.

Here's what I knew:
If I ordered a Sony product from a non-Sony store, I could fill out their on-line form to request extra bonus points for my purchase. (The form is here.)

Here's what I didn't realize:
Prior award points can be used towards the purchase of Sony items elsewhere. I've blogged about their excellent rewards system in the past (you can solve trivia questions daily for extra points) but I didn't realize THOSE points could be applied to THIS purchase!

I have about 7100 points, which translates to $71 towards a Sony item - INCLUDING that blu-ray player! It should take about two billing cycles to be applied but the end result is my blu-ray will end up costing roughly $30.

And that is why I love Sony.

I am also thinking about these Sony cards so that when I sign up on Wheel of Fortune to be an at home player & they call my name, if I have a Sony card I will get an extra $50,000! And I've never been a huge fan of Suze Orman.
