# Expiration of Sony Rewards Points
1. Sony Rewards Points shall be earned each month for each qualified activity that the Member completes during each month.
2. Any Sony Rewards Points that are earned during the current month shall be available for redemption for a period of (i) five (5) years for Members who have a Sony Card registered with Sony Rewards at the time the points are earned, subject to any limitations and conditions contained in their Sony Card agreement with the card issuing bank; or (ii) until March 31st of the calendar year following the calendar year in which the points are earned for Members who are not Sony Card holders and Members who are Sony Card holders but have not registered their Sony Card with Sony Rewards.
3. Member acknowledges that any Sony Rewards Points that are not redeemed during the redemption periods described in paragraph 10(b) above shall be forfeited at the end of that period. (For example, if 500 Sony Rewards Points are earned in the month of June by a Member who does not have a Sony Card registered with Sony Rewards, then these 500 points must be utilized by the last day of March of the following calendar year or such Sony Rewards Points shall be forfeited.)
4. Members who have a Sony Card registered with Sony Rewards will maintain their points for up to five years, subject to any limitations and conditions contained in their Sony Card agreement with the card issuing bank. For all other Members, all Sony Reward points are automatically forfeited when the Member elects to terminate his/her Sony Rewards membership.
You had FIVE YEARS if your card was registered with Sony Rewards and it sounds like it was because otherwise your points would have expired in March. FIVE YEARS! That is plenty of time for you to use your rewards. If you weren't registered and you only had a year to use them then that's your fault for not reading the terms and conditions.
There are lots of things you could have gotten with the rewards also, DVDs, CDs, digital downloads, PS2 games, a PS2, PS3 games.
