How to Use a Sony Gift Cards on PlayStation Vue


I was recently asked if PlayStation Vue had gift cards and at first I was not sure. I quickly found out there are, but they are not labeled as PlayStation Vue gift cards.

Gift cards are a growing market for streaming services. Sling TV, HBO NOW, Netflix, Hulu, and more all offer gift cards. They are a great resource for the estimated 7% of Americans who do not have a traditional bank account. These cards allow them to access streaming services that they would have otherwise struggled to use.

PlayStation Vue has no official gift cards marked as PlayStation Vue, but there are Sony PlayStation Store gift cards you can use.

You will find PlayStation Network gift cards at a wide range of stores from Walmart to Amazon; easy to find and easy to use.

Now the one catch seems to be brand new accounts. If you want to create a brand new account, it seems Sony still wants you to enter a credit card or debit card. From there, you can pay with a gift card.

    Sony – once again – showing how to make an easy thing hard.

    They are so worried about cross-selling their Playstation brand, that they confuse the heck out of everyone – likely losing many sales opportunities in the process.

    I wasn’t aware of “live streaming” services until a month ago. We were making use of HBOgo, WatchESPN, et al. I had heard of Hulu and Sling nearly a year ago – when we got a Roku. We needed live TV before even thinking about dropping cable.
    All I knew about “Playstation” was that it was some kind of gaming device. Didn’t know until I discovered this site, it was also the name of a video streaming service. Sony needs to change the name to “Vue” or “Sony Vue”.
