I purchased a prepaid American Express gift card from Giant grocery store. I checked online and for some weird reason it has $49 balance. First of all, **bleep**? I was charged a $5 fee for the card already now they want to charge me another $1 for what?
The $1.00 charges are when Sony is checking the card to make sure it is valid, has funds, is registered & not solen etc, it's basically a security check & the $1.00 fee(s) wil be returned to your card in a day or so.
Second of all, i do not know how to redeem the card. I tried entering the code in the redeem gift card/promotion code on PSN and that didn't work out. You see, this card is like a credit card and looks like one, but it has a 15 digit code on the front. 4 digits, then 6 digits, and then 5 digits. The PSN code accepts only 4 digits 3 times.
The pre-paid card is indeed like a credit card, I am not certain that pre-paid credit cards can be used on PSN very successfully, personally you would be better using your card to purchase a PSN card, in any event the card details need to be added to your account using account management, the 1234-1234-1234 area for inputting codes is for PSN cards & promotional codes ONLY.
I have NEVER used a card like this before and it is very frustrating for me. I have no idea what to do . Can anyone help me out here?
