I bought a $25 Mastercard Vanilla and registered it online (gave it my zip code). Went to make it my credit card on my account and it says it isn't valid. I know it's valid because it still charges me the $1 hold fee. I live in the states, so I'm not looking for an answer that blames Canada. I enter my name and billing address, so that isn't the problem either. Anyone know what I can do to fix it?
Is this the type of card that they sell that's almost like a giftcard? Why not just purchase a PSN card instead?
Welcome to the PlayStation Community.
Pre-Paid cards will only work if they are registered with a name & address.
I agree with the above, use the pre-paid card to purchase PSN cards, much less hassle.

The reason I buy gift cards is because what I want is rarely the full price of the $25 psn card, and I don't want to leave $15 or so waiting until something else comes out that I might want. I kind of figured I would have to use it to buy a psn card, but I was hoping I could avoid that. Oh well, thanks for the help.
