This was a great way to save money. I sure do hope before the next triple (or double) SC promo they fix the problem they had on the web with attempts to redeem cards getting rejected by the Sony server with very cryptic errors. Eventually you were able to "force" the redemption through, by trying over and over but it was pretty frustrating.
I'm also always amazed when they do such promos, they don't make arrangements for stores to have plenty of gamecards available. I had to visit 6 Walmarts to get the cards I needed. (Please don't tell me I could have called first. The clerks in Walmart electronics departments are hopeless. They will regularly inform me they have these cards when they really have the cards for PS3, or even for a non-Sony console game system!)
Of course, this might be a Sony sales strategy: they'd much rather sell their SC from their own website direct to consumers than have to pay Walmart and GameStop their "cuts." Moral of the story is buy the Walmart cards between promotions and store them away until the right moment.
