    Just signed up and got my $50 Google Play credit! Thanks!! :D

    Samsung also gave away stuff last year for Note II owners. I got a free Samsung flip case & NFC tags during that promotion.

    How long does it take? Over 20 minutes ago, I got my confirmation # but no email (I'm at work and it's a little awkward to check my personal emails).

    A bunch of people on the web are redeeming the promo codes using randomly generated IMEI's. Theres quite a few actual Note 3 owners who are unable to receive their codes because their IMEI has been used by random people on the web.

    It's a clusterf@ck right now, so probably why you're seeing the delay.

    EU zone users you can get €30 for doing similar. Just register or login on your Note 3 to a Samsung Account and you should get €30 credited to you as a gift voucher for samsung hub.

    I have a confirmation #. Hopefully, the delay is just to fix things. 3 hours and counting.

    Also, in the last 10 minutes, I have had to log back into macrumors three times. Anyone else having problems?

    Been busy all day, wish I had seen this earlier. I'll keep checking back periodically to see if they get any Google Play credits back in stock

    I did this with my htc one when it came out. I just sold it last month when I got my note 3. It took at least 4 months. Google kept sending me emails saying they had no credits but they would shortly.

    Damn! Thanks for the update. Just to say, they shouldn't have given people confirmation #s. These are high tech companies and it shouldn't be that hard to disable confirmation #s once the supply is exhasted.

    Yeah, a couple co-workers filled out the form and got their confirmation numbers around noon yesterday but didn't get the followup email with the credit redemption code.

    Samsung should've had a better system to track phones or maybe even offer $25 credits instead of $50 so twice the amount of people could've had a shot at the promotion.

    Did they just email it to you today or did you have to contact customer service?

    Edit: one of my friends got her redemption code this morning around 10. Another hasn't.. Maybe there's still hope for people who signed up and got confirmation numbers but didn't receive emails yet.

    Just got an email. Since I got it a lot later, I would imagine others will to. When, is a good question.

    I had two Note 3's (one a replacement) and I tried to redeem with both IMEI's. ....rejected both as "already redeemed." A$$hole scammers at Slick deals hacked my codes.

    Samsung is an idiot for doing it this way. Typical.
