Sony Visa® Credit Card overview

Gamers, media hounds and techies have something to sing about with the Sony Visa Credit Card, as it targets entertainment enthusiasts who spend money on games, movies, music and new tech. The big value here is the points you can earn on Sony products, an impressive 5X points per dollar. This includes everything from Sony video games to home entertainment.

You can also snag 5X points per dollar for music and video downloads, movie theater purchases and movie rentals, as well as digital streaming and subscription services. By linking your Sony card to various accounts, such as Netflix and Amazon, subscribers can potentially accumulate points for dollars they would’ve spent anyway.

As soon as your order is placed, points are placed on hold and will be deducted from your account upon shipment.

Rates and fees

  • There is no annual fee.
  • You’ll pay no foreign transaction fee on purchases made outside the U.S.

Bankrate’s Take: Is the Sony Visa Credit Card worth it?

Tailor-made for entertainment and tech consumers, the Sony Visa Credit Card is one of the best cards for rewarding these types of purchases.

For people who don’t spend much on tech and entertainment, there are many other rewards cards out there that offer more flexible ways to earn points, such as the popular Chase Sapphire Preferred Card or the Capital One SavorOne Cash Rewards Credit Card.
