The Free PS3 or PS Vita deal with Sony VAIO laptop purchase is now back on. This is supposed to be for students only, but anyone can pretty much get it if you follow this link:
Then follow the graphic that says “Save up to $250 on a Playstation” system” and you’ll see a bunch of coupon codes you can use to get discounts. Here are the following coupon codes you can use:

- 250VITA – Get a Free Playstation Vita

Then, after using that coupon you can get either a $100 rebate or $150 rebate in the form of a prepaid Visa card by visiting this page:
You have to fill in a rebate form and submit a copy of the receipt and barcode. If you configure your VAIO with Windows 7 Home Premium you get a $100 rebate card and if you configure Windows 7 Professional you get a $150 rebate card.
