Now might not be the best time to be getting a new credit card, but if you happen to be a gamer who's racking up charges anyway, a new PlayStation credit card could be the way to do it.
Yes, a PlayStation credit card. The card, issued by Chase Bank and announced Monday on Sony's official PlayStation blog, lets you earn reward points toward the purchase of a PlayStation and other Sony products.
Through an introductory offer running from now through December 31, cardholders can save $150 on the purchase of a PlayStation 3. Which hopefully will offset the debt accrued when stocking up on the likes of Little Big Planet, Dead Space, and Fallout 3.
You can get the knockdown by going www.sony.com/newpscard to get instant approval for your card, and an immediate $150 credit when you purchase a PS3 directly through the Web site. Or you can go to www.sony.com/getpscard to apply for the card and upon receipt of the card, use it at any authorized PlayStation retailer to purchase a PS3.
