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.

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
