If you "got it like that" then the fault lies in your failing to

check the back of the card before you paid for it. Since

the cards are on the customer's side of the cash, you are

able to check them before you pay for them.

 

Lesson learned for the next time, I suppose.

One step ahead of you. I contacted Sony and they said pretty

much the same as I already stated. If you didn't check the card

before you paid for it, it's your own fault.

 

I'm glad you think that WalMarts are useless. For you, videogames

are a hobby. For them...ESPECIALLY their managers...it's their JOB.

After working for them for almost 5 years, I'll trust thier opinions and

advice before anything said in an online forum.

I'm not going to complain about their service. As much as I hate Wal-Mart as a company, I won't deny that their services are good. I'm just going to complain that I have no warranty at all for this. Simply put, I'm just annoyed by the fact that 20$ of my money got wasted when I should have warranty for this sort of thing.

I'm pretty sure that on the back of the card, it tells you to scratch the gray stuff off lightly.  Sorry, but it's kind of your fault if you scratched the code too hard.

I'd like to know who'd actually waste their time trying to figure out the code for the card considering that the number of people who actually view this topic isn't very high and there's way too many possible combinations for most people to try and figure out. I doubt anyone actually will steal it, and even then the only solution to this problem is a new code it seems.

 

Goddamn, I'm still pissed I wasted 20$ because Wal-Mart gave me a **bleep** product and doesn't want to give me a new one...


ALright...

 

I work for WalMart Canada here in Montreal and after reading

your post the other day I checked this out during my lunch

hour today.

 

I went to the electronics dept and had a look at the PSN cards

and there's no way that anything could have gotten "ripped off"

because the card is plastic like a credit card and comes sold as

2 pieces that are attached. The only thing that is able to be re

-moved is the screening (film) over the code that you redeem

on the PSN. If the code is entered on the PSN before the card is

activated then it won't work. To activate the card the employee

runs the card through the card reader at the cash and then you

pay for the card. I talked to the manager of the electronics dept

and she informed me that the cards are the same in the US and

Canada.

 

Admit it...you simply rubbed the film too hard and removed the

numbers/letters underneath. What did you use to remove the film?

Your fingernail should be more than enough. Why should WalMart be

expected to pay for your inability to properly rub a screening on a

card? It's not their fault...it's yours. You didn't get "ripped off"...you

screwed yourself.

 

Next time, rub a little lighter.Smiley Wink

The part where the code is at is smudged off for whatever reason. I can't pick out 3 numbers/letters. The part of the code I can pick out goes as follows: X2??-?9Bt-R4K4. Personally, I just want to contact Sony or something so that I can get a new code. I really don't like getting ripped-off out of 20$ from Wal-Mart.

I would try to guess the 3 numbers but thats alot of different combinations.
