    I found this out there and I wasn't aware of it. I thought others might be interested as well. If you register your device with Samsung and create an account, etc, you are supposed to get a $25 credit to the Google Play store. I had to use IE to view the site and I had to use a different Samsung account then what I used for my apps.samsung.com account.

    Sorry to hear it. Mine went through without issue and I received my credit. Maybe try again in a few days to see if maybe their backend databases need to be updated.

    Thought I should chime in on this. The serial number was so tiny I misconstrued the numbers. This causes the the mac address and serial numbers to remain in red when you try and submit. I have a free app on my note 2 called magnify. It GREATLY magnifys what you are viewing with its built in camera. Once you get it focused you can then take a picture. Turns out a number that I thought was an 8 or a B was a 3. Once I changed it both boxes changed to white and it accepted the code. 2 minutes later I received my code. Also, there is a box at the top that lets you use your existing samsung account. I use the same account that I used to sign up with when I got my note 2. Worked just fine.

    Wow I just followed the direction on the sammy website that said to look on the back of the tablet. And there was a label that said s/n.

    The one on the box is much easier to read.

    I did the same. Used my old samsung account, the one where i registered my Note 2. I got a "congratulations, you'll receive an email for redeeming your play store credit" yada yada.
    That was about an hour ago, and so i chatted with a rep online at samsung.com, and they said to be patient and that i'd receive an email. I'll update you guys after i get off work.

    Anyone else having problems redeeming their credit after the completed the registration and got the pop-up window?

    Nope. Went straight to the play store and went to redeem. Entered the code and was greeted to $25 added instantly

    Do you have a junk email inbox? Also what are the chances you misspelled you email address which you put into register. Might try logging into your samsung account from your pc and checking your email preferences

    How about just register with a different email account?

    Is that possible? I figured since when I went thru the process on the perks page, it said "successfully registered" that I wouldn't be able to do so with a different email account.

    Has anyone who didn't receive the Play Store credit gotten it by re-registering thru a different email account. I want to try this route but kinda worried Sammy flag or not honor the Play Store credit if I do this. Thanks for the idea

    If you havent gotten it yet you will most likely not get it. Im telling you the very instant I hit submit on the registry I received an email with the code.
