amazon logo The overhead is crazy!
Sony makes purchasing games on their Playstation Network incredibly hard. I entered my credit card a dozen different ways, entered things exactly as they appear on my billing statement, and even looked through their FAQ online, but still couldn't add anything to my PSN wallet.

So my Plan B was to purchase a PSN Card. Holy cow, the overhead is ridiculous. Let's look at the numbers:
1. $50 charge for money that you can use in PSN. This is a given.
2. There is also shipping and handling. This added a few more dollars.
3. I was also charged taxes on the card.

So, after all was said and done, I got my card delivered to me for a little less than $60. But that isn't the whole story. I purchase a few games online. Each game I buy online, I get taxed again for THAT purchase too. Outrageous.

I thought this was my only option for getting money into my account, but now I see the overhead isn't worth it. I'll definitely try getting some other credit card account going, or something, before trying this again.

Maybe you are in a similar pickle as me, and if you are: I feel your pain. I do.

amazon logo The Only Way for Latinoamerica
I purchase this card and I sent it from amazon to Costa Rica, because I want the Map Pack 1, 2 and 3($9.99 each) from the Call of Duty WAW.

I tried to buy dollars to my wallet in the PlayStation Store (in my ps3 slim) with my credit card, that have the billing address in LA, California, but it didn't work any way.

So, I purchase it and now I can play the 3 map packs. There is true that we need to spend more money($5-6 to shipping, $3 taxes, $7 to bring to CR: $65 total) to get this card, but is the only way to get some add-on, games, themes or something else in the outside of US like Latinoamerica.

amazon logo Just buy online PS3 games through Amazon.
Being a card typically bought in stores, I purchased this thinking that I'd never have to pay any sales tax (since I'm not charged sales tax on my Amazon purchases) as I used it. Imagine my surprise when I was charged tax on each game I bought with funds from this card inside Playstation Store, tax that decreased the value of this card. PST's sales tax is near 10%, so this $50 card is actually only worth ~$45.

My advice to anybody who wants to buy games for their PS3 on Playstation Store: Just buy the code from Amazon. That way, if a game is $9.99, you PAY $9.99

amazon logo I feel the pain - headache to having a PSPgo - that SONY should not of done
Ok, where shall i begin, my husband purchased this console - it is awesome, until u realise after not reading up all the reviews - that you cant use it without a US account/credit card/visa or to get to my point - a PSPgo voucher card.
I think this is totally ridiculous - why make and outrageous looking console - love it .. and you cant use it at all for downloading games or even getting use of the games installed in it unless U HAVE A CREDIT CARD from the US.
I do not mind the taxes etc but WHY have a restriction like this for a company that is INTERNATIONAL/WORLDWIDE - selling your products all over the place and you have to be LIMITED to getting games - only solution is to GET A VOUCHER which i would like to add is not available in 3 stores I sent my friend too in NYORK - two being games stores and a US card/credit card account.
WHY i ask, for this brilliant HEADACHE LIKE CONSOLE to be created.
And up to now i still have NO ACCESS to the i site or the games to even provide a positive REVIEW.. sorry to say.. BUT good luck to you if you planning to have one..
i am actually planning to return MINE

amazon logo Helping hardworking america...
This card is as american as it gets. It's very good for the economy. Our post offices are struggling in so much debt they are considering dropping saturday delivery. I'm proud to pay a little extra to overnight a card through our great mail system if it keeps our mail coming in "rain, sleet, and snow" and saves the mailworkers their jobs. Even better, I got charged for tax TWICE! Once for the card and once when using it online. Now my hard-earned money is putting roads under our feet and medical treatment for the elderly and uninsured. Now if that doesn't stir your heart fellow citizens I don't know what will. My only regret is not being able to pay shipping twice too or change my taxes to Florida's 9% instead of the measly 7% in my state. You can't very well put a multi-trillion dollar budget through with that now can you? But nonetheless I've done my share and am proud to be an american.

amazon logo Card is great, price is lousy.
Why pay more money than the card is worth? Cheaper to purchase locally, or via PlayStation directly. Your local 7-11, Wal-mart or grocery store will likely have them for dollar-for dollar value.

amazon logo Good Product but lousy provider (Target)
The card and the Playstation Network work fine, on the other hand the card's seller, Target, does not give a good and honest service.
They sell stuff that is said to be on stock and charge for express delivery, but in every purchase I've made from them through Amazon, they deliver extremely late and in parts.
Amazon did reimburse me for my last express shipping fee, but I was never able to contact Target. So Amazon great, Target lousy.
