A Second Wave of Sony's $10 PSN Credit is Spreading Through North America

The initial wave thanked loyal customers, now others seem to be benefitting.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]3527[/ATTACH]

Last month, Sony very quietly sent out huge batches of $10 credits through the PSN messaging system. The messages described the credit as a "thank you for being a loyal customer and fan of the PlayStation Network." As with similar promotions, users needed to check their PSN message box, and the credit was set to expires unless redeemed and thereby added to the user's wallet. (Banked, rather than spent.)

Reports of a second wave are now cropping up, and it seems that less frequent PSN users are the beneficiaries. It is likely that users are supposed to be encouraged to utilize PSN with the credit, however, if the credit is not added to the user's funds before the expiration date (03/25/13 in the latest instance), then the credit will no longer be available.

The stealthy campaign is considerably widespread, and the best way to check for the credit is through a PS3, PS Vita, PSP. From the XMB the users should navigate to the right towards the XMB inbox.

I got the credit last month, but it had been sitting in my message box unnoticed for some time.

I haven't received anything, have had a PS3 since 2007 and use PSN everyday (Netflix and Amazon Prime).

But, almost never for video games or buying/renting movies... so maybe that's the problem.

Had a PS3 since 08, my original 40GB phat failed and I traded it towards a 120GB Slim. Almost ALWAYS on playing, not so much as of lately with work but I didn't receive anything in the first wave nor this one. Wish they would clearly state why it happens. Oh well though, 10$ isn't much anyways and I rarely buy something unless it is a necessity

Oh crap, I NEVER check my inbox messages! I will check this out when I get home - I noticed a couple of days that there was a message in there, but I haven't read it yet. I use my PS3 mainly as a media hub, but I do play an ocassional game. But PSN has movies too, so I am sure I could find something to use the $10 credit for!
