A few days before Black Friday, I replaced my 3-year old Sony Vaio laptop with a new E Series laptop, from the same manufacture. After comparing different brands, such as Dell, HP, Acer, and Toshiba, etc, I decided to go with Sony again because I could configure it to exactly what I want. Eventually, I got a Vaio VPCEB390X model with Intel Core i5 processor (I wanted to have an i7, but don’t want a big screen), 8 GB memory, and ATI Mobility Radeo HD 5650 GPU. But I what I like the most is the full HD display with resolution at 1920×1080. After a few days on the new laptop, I just can’t take those old displays any more
Anyway, I bought the laptop from Sony directly and since I have Sony Card, I was able to earn a nice cash back using the card to pay for the purchase. I got the Chase Sony Card in 2000 when it was from Citibank I guess. Even though I don’t use the card a lot now, I didn’t cancel it either since it was one of the oldest cards I own.
Speaking of Sony Card, if you are a Sony fan and buy lot of stuff from Sony, such as laptops, digital cameras, flat screen TVs, etc., you can earn rewards much fast with the card because it let you get generously rewards points for shopping at Sony and the points can then be redeemed for Sony products or gift cards. The Sony Card, currently issued by Capital One, will let you earn
5X points at Sony stores, Sony.com and Sony authorized retailers
3X points on all dining out and movies
1X point on everything else
If you are interested in getting the Sony Card, for a limited time, you will receive 5,000 bonus points, which can be redeemed for $50 cash, after the first purchase with the card within 90 days of card membership. The card also offers a 0% introductory APR on purchase until September 2011. The card has no annual fee.
