The sign up bonus on the MBNA Sony Card Platinum Plus MasterCard once again increase from 2,000 to 10,000 Sony points. There does not seem to be a time frame on how long the promotion is going on for, so it will come back down at any time without notice. We’ve also seen this promotion terminate earlier than advertised without warning.
Let’s take a look at the highlights of the credit card:
- No annual fee
- Earn 10,000 sign up bonus points after your first purchase
- Earn 2 points for every $1 spent on eligible purchases of Sony products (at sony.ca)
- Earn 1 point for every $1 spent on all other purchases
The 10,000 sign up bonus is essentially worth $100. So if you have been contemplating whether to sign up for this credit card, I would do it ASAP without thinking about it, the no annual fee should calm any sort of hesitation.
Note that you will only receive the sign up bonus points after your first purchase and first monthly statement.
Keep in mind that all the Sony stores across Canada have already shut down. That means that you can only really earn the 2x Sony points on Sony.ca purchases, which is essentially a 2% return. Note that you can only use the points on Sony products at Sony.ca on orders of $30 or greater.
If you are a fan of Sony products, then I think that it is worthwhile to sign up for this credit card, at least the get the sign up bonus and earn the 2 points per dollar.
