PSN March Savings: Get $10 For Every $50 Spent

PromoMoney_SEN-H_3

What a start we’ve had to 2013! We here at PlayStation Network have no intention of slowing down anytime soon, and we have a great new promotion and a number of great digital titles coming your way starting next month.

Starting February 26 and throughout the month of March, we’ll be offering you the chance to get $10 back for EVERY $50 you spend using your SEN Wallet! This means that if you spent $100 you’d receive $20 back at the end in April. Everything from games, movies and TV shows — anything that accepts SEN Wallet funds — is fair game. If you were thinking of subscribing to PlayStation Plus, now’s a great time to do it. Grab the 1-year membership for $49.99 to get the most of your PSN experience, plus a little extra cash back.

We also have a number of brand new Day 1 Digital titles coming your way in March, and even better, they’re all available for pre-order starting tomorrow, February 26! Pre-ordering the titles gets you a free theme, and a number of the titles come with additional pre-order bonuses for PSN buyers.

Grabbing these titles is a great way to take advantage of this promotion, as every $50 you spend counts toward getting $10 increments back in April. See below for the full list of titles:

March 5th

MLB The Show 13

  • Pre-order from 2/26 to 3/5 to get a free exclusive theme and an extra 120 million in Franchise Budget to jump start your team.
  • Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk

  • Pre-order from 2/26 to 3/5 to get a free exclusive theme
  • March 19th

    The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct

  • Pre-order from 2/26 to 3/19 to get a free exclusive theme
  • March 26th

    Bioshock: Infinite

  • Pre-order Bioshock Infinite or Bioshock Infinite+Season Pass from 2/26 to 3/26 to get a free exclusive theme, The Industrial Revolution Gear Pack for Bioshock Infinite, and receive the original Bioshock game as a bonus.
  • Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14

  • Pre-order from 2/26 to 3/26 to get a free exclusive theme and receive the world-famous the Els Club DLC course as a bonus
  • Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel

  • Pre-order from 2/26 to 3/26 to get a free exclusive theme and receive the Overkill Edition as a bonus
  • Overkill Edition content: Includes Exclusive Bonus Weapons (Day of the Dead, AK-47, Double-D Shotgun, TAH-9 handgun), Outfit/Mask Sets (Day of the Dead, Overkill and Polymer), Exclusive Overkillers Contracts (new missions designed for nonstop, frenetic co-op destruction)
  • We’ll be sending out your earned credit before April 12 via e-mail and XMB Message on your PS3! Let us know what you’ll be buying this March in the comments, and make sure to get all your purchases through April 1. Happy gaming!

    this is great news … I’m going to snag your 3 month bonus for plus in the next day or two …. so in essence, the 15 months will be down to $40 when combined with this offering …. wow – great customer perks. thanks so much ! you guys really know how to up the ante & make things a no brainer …. it wasn’t in debate for me before I read about this … my son would never forgive me if we lost the plus perks … he still goes to load Back to the Future episodes – & that was a plus offering Christmas before last …. that update that offered the Marvel Pinball 4 pack is what lured me … & it hasn’t lapsed a day since ….

    Trust me when I tell you that I’m the LAST person to care about stuff not being backwards compatible on PS4. However, I completely understand when everyone else brings it up. I assume this loyalty program will take a big hit because of this very issue. I’d work on alleviating some concerns if I were you regarding BC.

    ” If you were thinking of subscribing to PlayStation Plus, now’s a great time to do it. Grab the 1-year membership for $49.99 to get the most of your PSN experience, plus a little extra cash back.”

    That’s a little misleading. I remember a similar promotion was happening a year or two ago. I was short a dollar, (or a few cents) of the required amount, so I didn’t receive any credit back. I even called PlayStation support to find out why and the guy tallied the total amount I had and said because I was just short of it, I didn’t qualify.

    So if it’s $50 you have to spend, $49.99 probably isn’t going to cut it. You still have to spend that extra .01.

    If you can still get the $10 with the 1 year PS+ membership, then please correct me. If not, then please, correct that statement made.

    Now it would be stupid to just buy stuff to get the money back, so hopefully the things people purchase will be things they were going to get regardless if there was a promotion or not.

    I too renewed my PS+ last week. If I had waited till today, I could have gotten 15 months for $40 :(. Oh, well. I guess I will consider the $10 credit that I (and many others) found in their message box to be in lieu of that.

      This time the reward is for everyone. If you spend $50 with your SEN Wallet (on games, movies, subscriptions,…) from now through April 1, then we will send $10 reward through PS3 XMB Message and Email to your SEN/PSN account after the promotion period ends. If you spend $100 we will send $20, if you spend $150 we will spend $30, etc…

    This blends so well with the Vita Sales & the winning award game sales that’ll be up ina few hours.

    People without the Plus service have a better chance at reaching that 50$ value due to Plus discounts being quite steep.

    I’d say this is a win win for anyone really.

    I’m sure Sony doesn’t intentionally try & take advantage of folks who just spent money that could have gone towards this promo … I intended all month to renew plus, but knew I had until the 4th to qualify …. maybe putting these things off to see what might be coming is a good idea …

    GOW Ascension is not on the list for preorders – is it only available at retail ? just wondering, b/c with this deal, I would consider a digital purchase – going to check out the SP demo after the update, & a purchase may be in my future …

Time to add more Vita games to my backlog I guess! If I add up the games I want it comes to…$49.93 – D’oh! I’m sure there’s something else I can spend at least 7 cents on in the PS store.

    Nice I just renewed PSN+ last night, thanks Sony. On the other hand I wouldn’t buy anything on PSN anymore since A) Pricing is usually more expensive/ not competitive with retail and B) I’m still pissed off that my hundreds of dollars of purchases over the years don’t transfer to the PS4 but I guess I can just buy them over right?

    It would be really nice if you guys could announce PSN+ downloads, sales, other promos AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MONTH instead of letting your customers pay more because they bought something the day before. Of course this just adds to the list of things requested by PS customers that you’ve ignored over the years like cross game chat, better remote play, backwards compatibility, etc

    At this only further proves why Microsoft is number one on the current generation of consoles, you guys never get your acts together.

    That’s a good idea. However, on this topic, allow me to narrate how Sony called me a liar.

    Sony sent me a $10 voucher. I believe I get it because I recently bought Ni No Kuni (> $50). That’s really cool. Unfortunately, I could not redeem it because my PS3 crashed (light outage, not your fault).
    Ok, the system started restoring itself (database) and *all* my received messages were gone. This was expected.

    I requested a personal assistance explaining the issue and requesting: “Would you guys just re-send me the voucher? I thank you in advance!”

    The response from an operator called “Richard”: We do apologize for this inconvenience. However, your account was not on the list of being sent a voucher.

    Ok, I feel offended by that answer. What am I, a liar? Couldn’t Sony just re-sent the voucher? Just check my account history, can you?
