In previous years, Sony has offered promos, such as Google TV, to encourage credit card sign ups.  While this years promo is not quite as good, it’s not bad for people who are fans of Sony electronics or collectors of Sony Points.

For new MBNA SonyCard cardholders (no annual fee), Sony is offering a 10,000 point (normally 2,000 points) sign up bonus (worth $100) and a chance to win a PlayStation 4.  What’s the catch?  New cardholders must spend $400 by January 15, 2014 to obtain the bonus.  This is a very limited time offer that expires Friday, December 20th, 2013 3pm ESTSorry the deal has expired!

    While reading the article on the Canadian pension system, it occurred to me that part of the reason for Canadians’ poor saving rate is the effectiveness of the marketing of debt. Banks do such a good job of ensnaring young adults into debt that they simply don’t have the money to save. It’s easy to say that this is their personal choice, but we end up paying GIS for these people later in their lives.

    Thanks for the mention.
