Scratched PSN card too hard!!

17 replies 7452 views Edited Dec 15, 2010

I got really excited getting a 50 dollar psn card. But I accidental scratched it a bit too hard and now the numbers are smeared. I was wondering if I call Sony would they help me get my number. Cause technically I still haven't redeemed the code and they might ask for the bar code number to tell me the code to redeem for PSN store. With that said that means my card is still available to use. So my question is, could Sony still help me get the code?

Call the number on your reciept from the store you purchased the card at. If you don't have a receipt AFAIK you are SOL

If not all the numbers are 'smeared' & only a couple are then I suppose you can take guesses at the right one, but yes, I would call Sony, the Store from where you bought it probably won't help you.
