    Sorry, but this may be US owners only. But give it a try and see:

    1. Download the app Gift Voucher from the app store. Its a Nokia/Microsoft official app
    2. Ensure you have your Wallet set up. Wallet is a built in app on your phone, but you need to sign into it first, if you have never done it.
    3. Open the Gift Voucher app. Copy your code when it shows at the top. No code = you are out of luck
    4. Go to wallet app and hit the + sign at the bottom
    5. Click the Redeem Microsoft Credit
    6. Paste in your code
    7. Enjoy your $25 in app store credit. Now when you click on to buy an app, ensure that you pay with your Microsoft store credit

    Looks like that's just limited to the 1020/1520 owners. I'm not finding that app when I do a search in the app store.

    Well that blows. I wonder why they advertised the Icon with the 1020 and 1520? I know those two work for sure cause I personally got credit for both.

    Sorry mate. Don't understand how Microsoft is doing this? Some people have no issue and others get blocked. No rhyme or reason? :confused:
