Questions about PSN Gift Cards

9 replies 187 views Edited Dec 24, 2012

So I'm either going to receive a PSN gift card or buy one during this Christmas season.
I don't have a credit card or plan to enter any kind of credit card information into my Playstation account.

Am I still able to buy stuff off the network with the gift card?
(What I mean is: on my Nook, if I get a Barnes and Noble gift card, you still need to have credit card information to use the gift card. But on iTunes, you can redeem a gift card and buy stuff without a credit card. How does it work with PSN cards?)

Also I only see $20 and $50 dollars cards. Any other values? Because if I want to get a 19.99 game like Crysis 1 or Vanquish, I couldn't because the tax would make it over 20. And I'm only getting a $20 dollar card

And anyone know the sales tax amount on PSN games, so I can calculate how much I'll need when I purchase games?

Tax may depend on state you live in. I know some states still charge sales tax on online purchases.

You won't require a credit card to use a PSN gift card on the PlayStation Store.

Also I only see $20 and $50 dollars cards. Any other values? Because if I want to get a 19.99 game like Crysis 1 or Vanquish, I couldn't because the tax would make it over 20. And I'm only getting a $20 dollar card

 

Sales tax will depend on the state you reside in, you should be able to easily check that online with a search engine like Google.

And anyone know the sales tax amount on PSN games, so I can calculate how much I'll need when I purchase games?

Indeed it does, for example here in Florida I pay no sales tax on PlayStation Store purchases, but I know other states do charge it.

@ Fidelity
So just to be certain, if I want to get Crysis 1 for 19.99, no tax in NY?
