As soon as I got the email from Samsung I went to submit for my $50 credit, I did buy the phone about a month ago, but I am the original owner and when I went, it gave me an error and said to correct the information in the IMEI field, and it would never accept it, then a few days later the messages that they were out started popping up, did anyone else have that early on before they started saying they were out?

I'd give SAMSUNG a call/on-line chat.

Reason being, the program was halted due to fraudulent claims not being verified to the actual phone/IMEI number.

If you've had issues getting a code, especially if you get the IMEI error, I'd guess SAMSUNG will make things right.


The one area where SAMSUNG could show some leadership in the tech industry is put a stop to the U.S./country exclusives & go global w/the promotions.

OK. Finally found it. Had to log in at a separate location other than just Google.com, wallet.google.com to be exact.

How do you make sure when you make a purchase it uses the credits first and not the "default" credit card on file?

If you haven't already found it, when you go to purchase an app, it should pop up with your account balance and default to that for the purchase.

Can someone clarify. Does the January 6 date (or whatever it was) represent a date that the credits will expire or the original end date for people to sign up? Just want to be sure if I should use up the $50 for whatever I can ASAP, just so I don't lose them, or if I can take my time.

I think I read somewhere that on the terms & conditions it said it was only available to the first 30,000. I could be wrong though.

Here's the terms:

SAMSUNG - It's Now Even Easier To Switch - Promotion ended

Google Play ? Google

No expiration on GOOGLE PLAY Credits.(ITEM 3 in 2nd Link)

Offer to apply/sign-up is the only thing that expires,from start of offer until JANUARY 6,2014 or while supplies last,with the latter appearing to be the case

http://samsung.plcontent.com/note3-pl1513/Content/OfficialRules.pdf?cdn=-1541087657

The 30,000 number of offers appears to be correct (SEE Item 4 in the above link).

Darn. If only money wasn't that much of an issue I would've snagged the Note 3 up a few weeks ago.

Oh well, I'll still have one beast of a phone when I get it

I didn't try it out on Movies or Music though, but just wanted to mention that ahead of time, regarding the credits.

Try reading the entire thread. It was ended early due to scammers redeeming hundreds of codes, selling them on eBay, and then bragging about it online.

WOW, s with many iphones and time/money invested in iTunes gets screwed because Samsung can't keeps its promo secure?
Thanks pretty crappy that they would be so stupid as to NOT ask for a receipt proving the purchased qualifying device.

(Being a new droid peep, I could really use the credit!)

Who's fault does this lay with? The consumer or Samsung? Samsung is responsible for the security in regards to its promotions. This isn't something new. If it IS for them, they should fire the promotions director I'd say. This is not a good PR moment for them. Every company that has promotions knows to provide a level of security for those promotions. If Samsung did not, that reflects pretty badly on them....

30,000×50=1,500,000 USD. Let's see now... We have over one million registered members on this site alone. I recall seeing it first on Android Police who also have a rather large registered member pool, then Sammobile and last but not least engadget.

I think that regardless of the hack attack the news could have spread fast enough to burn through that sum.

Seems like crapola to me!
If the goal of this promo was to get folks to switch from apple, (or others) to Samsung, then the offer should be open ended.

Can you imagine Promo Joe's boss walks into his office and says "congrats Joe, you got 30k folks to switch to Samsung. Wow that promo worked greatd, lets shut it down now, we don't want 60k folks to switch over, 30k is enough"


I call bullshit !!!
I just switched from 4s to N3, last week and I want the $50 google play credit !!!
Does anyone have a number to Samsung, I will call them and post my results right here.

Yeah, it was here and gone the same day. I bookmarked the offer in the morning and the offer was canceled when I came back that evening.

Yeah I agree with this, with the Note 2 I think in the US Samsung were offering free flip covers and nothing in the UK, not sure about other countries, but with the Note 3 the US has $50 worth of google play credit while the UK had a free Official flip wallet cover, although this was a Dec 1st - 31st offer only.

It would be nice if they gave everyone the same offers throughout the world because at the end of the day we would have all, regardless of country, paid top prices for the phone or contract, to get any early offers/rewards in the first place.

Thanks pretty crappy that they would be so stupid as to NOT ask for a receipt proving the purchased qualifying device.

(Being a new droid peep, I could really use the credit!)
They could automate things like that like they did with Drop box. I am sure their system could simply push $50 to users who are logged into their Samsung and Google account. Rather than generating codes.

I don't know about everybody else, but the $50 freebie didn't really make much difference in my decision to get the N3. A lot of us had already purchased the phone by the time the offer came and went (quickly). As you already needed to be a registered user to get the $50, it seemed to me to be more of a reward for the early buyers, rather than an inducement to folks who held back for whatever reason. Yeah, I got some stuff at the Play Store that I might have waited a little longer to buy, but I'd talked myself into the phone long before all this happened.

It is unfortunate that so many missed out, but I have closed this thread - the offer was only valid (while stocks lasted) until 6th Jan!

Any issues with the lock, feel free to PM me!
