    Didn't they say something about giving the funding back by the 6th or 7th of April or something? not immediately after the months finished.
    I just saw it as a 20% off deal pretty much

    Patience. It hasn't even been a full 24 hours. I doubt that Sony would do something like this just for money. They wouldn't risk losing however many consumers with all they are doing to retain or gain new ones with the PS4 coming out.
    Gotta love the "instant gratification" society that we now live in. If it isn't immediate, something is wrong or somebody f***ed up.

    We’ll be sending out your earned credit before April 12 via e-mail and XMB Message on your PS3! Let us know what you’ll be buying this March in the comments, and make sure to get all your purchases through April 1
    Is that enough info for you? thought they said something by the 6th or 7th.
    Calm down.
