Not really a deal but Vita owners should be on the look out for this email as it may go to your junk folder. If this belongs somewhere else feel free to move it.

 

Link if you did not receive email and should be eligible http://www.cheapassg...df&pid=12622339

 

Edit: remove link from email as it is unique and ppl were trying to use it (its dead,I used it)

 

CASH BACK OR MERCHANDISE OFFER FROM
SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT AMERICA LLC
Dear Customer:
Our records show that you purchased a PlayStation Vita handheld game console prior to June 1, 2012. The Federal Trade Commission has alleged that some SCEA advertisements for the PlayStation Vita during this period were deceptive. Although SCEA neither admits nor denies liability in connection with this matter, SCEA has agreed to settle the dispute with the Federal Trade Commission by offering either cash back (or credit on your PSN account) or merchandise to customers who purchased a PlayStation Vita before June 1, 2012, and who have not returned the product for a full refund.
Accordingly, we are pleased to offer you the opportunity to receive a check for $25 (or a $25 credit on your PSN account). Alternatively, you are eligible to receive a merchandise voucher that you can use to select from a list of merchandise, video games and/or services. The selection of merchandise, video games and/or services that are available through this offer has a retail value of $50 or more.
You are eligible to receive either a check for $25 (or a $25 credit on your PSN account) or a merchandise voucher, but not both. For details of each offer and to make your choice of the $25 check (or credit) or the merchandise voucher, please click here.
You MUST complete and submit the information requested in the above link by June 30, 2015 to be eligible to receive the $25 check (or $25 credit on your PSN account) or merchandise voucher worth $50 or more. Please be assured that your acceptance of this offer does not obligate you to purchase anything.
For more information on our settlement with the Federal Trade Commission, please visit www.ftc.gov and search for “Sony Computer Entertainment America.”

It's a $25 check, a $25 PSN credit, or a choice between three different sets of four games.

No there are "game bundles that are valued at $50+ ...however they are all PS3 and Vita games, most of which have been free on PS+

Well that's not a thing I would be interested in. So before anyone else asks, who wants to buy mine for $?

.....I'm kidding I'll probably just give it away

Always better safe then sorry. That said I filled it out and requested the psn credit. All that it requires it the email address where you received the the offer. No passwords PSN ID etc. And this is the account where i register my hardware.

Anyone else getting "invalid PSN ID"?

I'm not sure what the problem is. The PSN ID I entered is definitely the one associated with the email I received the offer at. I also double checked to make sure I got the spelling and capitalization correct.

 

EDIT: Even though it says PSN ID, they want your email address (it explains this to the right of where you enter it).

I thought I'd leave this up here for the people like me that don't read directions :wall:

 

Thank you to Legacy48 for clearing that up for me!

If you look to the right it actually wants your email address. Not sure why it says PSN ID

If the white Vita was your first Vita then you wouldn't meet the criteria for this settlement...

Oh so you would not be eligible if it came out late 2012. The title is the title of the thread.
