Don't buy digital codes from Amazon
Reviewed in the United States on October 30, 2018
I purchased two of these cards almost exactly 4 months ago, in preparation for some fall releases. I've bought a lot of digital cash cards for PSN from Amazon, it's an easy way to use credit or to tuck something away to save for later, when I KNOW I want a game.
I used one code early September and was prepared to use one the day before Red Dead Redemption 2 came out. Unfortunately, it did not deposit the $60 into my account. Instead, I get this error from Sony. "The code you entered is inactive. Please check terms and conditions." I try multiple browsers, multiple devices.
I contact Amazon and I'm told it's not their problem, it's on Sony. I contact Sony, send them the code itself and the purchase information. 2 days later, I hear back. It's not their problem, it's "the retailer's." I contact Amazon again and get told that I can no longer get a refund, they can't do anything and how would $3 in credit make me feel?
Don't buy digital codes from Amazon. I was unaware there was a ticking clock on it, I was given no indication that I would have to use in X amount of time and now I'm out $60 and Amazon will do nothing.
DON'T BUY DIGITAL CODES FROM AMAZON. You never know when they just might not work and you're screwed out of your money.
