Samsung Offering $50 in Google Play Credit to Galaxy Note 3 Owners


Samsung must be feeing mighty generous, as they are now giving away $50 in Google Play credit to all U.S. owners of a Galaxy Note 3. Claiming your $50 is extremely easy, and works for any carrier you are on, as long as it is in America. Simply put in your phone number, fill out the address form, and then input your device’s unique IMEI number. Once completed, you should receive your Play credit code to the email you submitted within minutes.ย 

Let’s give a nice big “thank you” to Sammy this morning.

Via: Samsung

Cheers Nathan, Matt, Mat, David, Jeremy, Michael, Jim, and Nathaniel!

    FYSA: I received a confirmation, but never received the email with the actual credit attached. I called PrizeLogic’s customer service. They are currently reviewing the eligibility of submitted IMEI’s. There are still $50 credit available for individuals who entered their information; however, no ETA according to rep.

  • Sporttster

    Definately BS that this ‘until Jan 6th’ lasted ‘half a day on Nov 20th’. BS! Fking ridiculous…..didn’t even go one damn day!

  • TankerTuff

    Update: now website says since they ran out the offer is over. The whole “While supplies last.” came into play.

  • aimfire72

    Wow, they ran out in under 24 hours?? That’s BS… F off, Samsung!

  • TankerTuff

    Called samsung and they said offer lasts until Jan 6th 2014. So just keep checking the website.

  • This used to be my dream device, but Samsung’s lack of KitKat plans made me drop it. I’ve only bought 1 app ever anyway and I rarely buy music.

  • Josh

    I was able to register on the site for my $50 credit, but never received an email with a code to redeem. I emailed their support team with my confirmation number (luckily I saved it). Surprisingly, they got back to me pretty quickly saying, “Your ticket has been submitted successfully. One of our support gurus will get back to you with more information within 2 to 3 business days.” So, if you were able to register you should be hearing something soon from them if you have yet to receive your email. I would recommend emailing them, as someone else suggested, at [email protected]

    • Randy de Vera

      I emailed customer support yesterday and still didn’t get an email ๐Ÿ˜›

    • amies

      when did you register? Was this before or after the website said they are out of credits?

  • amies

    Don’t bother ordering a note 3 if you don’t have one yet. Credits are out. They should at least give to those that already have one.

  • ary

    I never received a code and I submitted my request this morning around 10:00am PST…I did get a confirmation number though. When I went back to the site, it states that the Google Play credits are all out. Thought you had till Jan 2014 to request it.

  • rick

    What’s Sammy support email address ? I have conformation number but no email yet

  • Dan

    THE LINK SAYS THEY ARE OUT!!!!! Says come back later. I hope they will offer more. ๐Ÿ™

  • jboogie1289

    Guess you have to be swift to get in on it as they are all out of Google Play credits at the moment, check back later. And I will, thank you!!

  • Sporttster

    Sorry we’re out of Google play credits???? Huh??!?? Thanks but only the first ten people who sign up get this, huh….w….t…..h

  • umbrellacorp

    Dead. Man, I preordered this phone. I wish I was able to get the fiddy spot. What zombie do I have to shoot around here to get stuff done?

  • schlanz

    Annnnd they are out. “Check back later.”

    Fingers crossed.

  • Bob

    I Submitted at 4:00 EST no email yet…… boooo!

  • crazysamz

    Sight appears to be down…

  • Dante Finch

    Haven’t received anything yet

    • Randy de Vera

      me neither. ๐Ÿ™

  • RiChDAiLLeST1

    What a steal just got my $50 google play credit…. and I only paid $130 for the device because of a Verizon computer glitch!

  • Tony Horning

    So what’s everyone spending there $50.00 on ? I’m going to spend it on apps just not sure which ones yet. Too bad we can’t spend it on devices or I’d be buying a Nexus 7.

    • Adrynalyne

      Tech books:


  • Drew Kilkenny

    I entered my code and got a confirmation number but no email…..wtf

    • Coonsie

      Me too!

  • Guest

    I got my code and it was accepted so where is my balance shown ? I looked at Google Wallet and it shows I have a $0.00 balance.

    • itsacardigan

      It shows up as Google play credit

    • Mitchman

      Google Opinion Rewards will display your Wallet balance.

  • Kristine

    Hey thanks for this! Woot for credits!

  • Dongwenal

    I read Google play is draining battery they need a fix Now has anybody experience this issue I have on note 3.

  • lakers1moretime

    Freaking Awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

  • McD

    Congrats. My number has already been used. Cheers Samsung.

    • Rcaudill82

      Same here! I sent Samsung a message asking what can be done since I never used it. Complete BS! People pissed me off.

  • dlegendary0ne

    How long does it take to get the email? I signed up two hours ago and nothing yet

  • StompIt

    thank you!!!!!!!!

  • RaptorOO7

    Got my $50 from Samsung on top of the extras for a GN 10.1 Tablet which was $25 on Google Play and $50 on the Samsung hub. Not bad.

  • FutureFuzz

    Just bought the Note 3 last week! this is great!

  • Guest

    Damm, I knew having “5” Note 3’s would come in handy 1 day SUCKAZ!

  • jmiranda3983

    entered mine like 2 hours ago still waiting on code…hopefully i get it.

    • Jerry

      email the support under the reference number. my was honored after i told him i have the reference number but the email never came.

  • Payaso

    Thank you DL, otherwise I would have had no idea! $50 credit whoo hoo!!!

  • Pdewet

    Well this just made my Wednesday. Thank you Droid Life and Sammy

  • Aaron Rossman

    It keeps saying that my IMEI is invalid? Is anyone else having this problem?

    • mike

      I get the same thing.

      • Adrynalyne

        Someone is exploiting the system and entering in additional IMEIs. Yours probably happened to be one of them. I wager it is an employee with access to account info.

  • Adrynalyne

    This drops the cost of my Note 3 down to 180 off contract.

    • laheelahee

      whoa.. how’d you manage to pull that off?

      • Adrynalyne

        Trades and finaggling.

        Traded in daughter’s iPhone4, got 100
        Traded in wife’s Droid Maxx, got 190

        They gave me a credit for 200 off the full retail price of a phone because I had no upgrades.

        Now this.

        So, 699-290(trades)-200(credit)= 209.00. Then you add tax and such and its closer to 230. Now subtract the 50 dollar credit , and Im looking at closer to 180.

        Now, this sounds kinda douchey for my wife and daughter but:

        My wife has severe hearing loss and the Note II (my old phone) is the only one she can hear with. So there went the Maxx.

        My daughter proved her worth with taking care of the iPhone4, so I upgraded her to a 32GB 5s, which required me to open another line.

  • Paul Christopher

    Just so everyone knows, this promotion ends on January 6th, 2014 at 11:59:59 pm ET.

  • Mike

    I’ve been considering the Note 3 as my next smartphone. Still rocking the Galaxy Nexus, running 4.4 Shiny rom has breathed new life into it. Does anybody know how long this offer lasts?

    • Jkdem85

      January 6th I believe

    • Dave

      I bought one, and sold it 5 days later. Keeping my note 2 instead.

    • Zander

      I bought one, then bought the Nexus 5, then sold the Note. I’m guessing you’re on verizon though, in that case I would go for the Note 3 or G2

      • Chippah

        G2 all the way Development on the LG G2 is on FIRE!
        Dumping my Note 3 as soon as White G2 drops on vzw.

  • crazed_z06

    Got My 50 bucks!!!!

    Just FYI guys, hurry up and get yours. There’s a thread on slickdeals where people are submitting multiple times by generating IMEI codes.. http://slickdeals.net/f/6453584-free-50-google-play-gc-w-note-3-purchase-us-only?page=5

    • Nate

      ya thanks to these asshats my real imei doesnt work ๐Ÿ™

      • Guest

        hows it feel now, when you scumbags bought 15 $200 OFF contract S4’s and G2’s etc..?

        • Adrynalyne

          You wouldn’t have, if given the chance?

          Mail and Wire fraud is a little different than taking advantage of a retailer marking a price incorrectly. What, are you supposed to beg them and tell them that hey, you need to charge me more?!

        • Nate

          i bought one lg g2.. one not 15 ps- thanks adrynalyne +1

      • Alex Thomson

        Developer edition imei# isn’t working. I had to email them and they generated a ticket# 2-3 day response back.

        • Nate

          let me know how it goes!

    • EvanTheGamer

      What a bunch of douchebags.

  • Chrisdroid

    I so redeemed that already, LOVE YOU SAMSUNG and GOOGLE of course!

  • EvanTheGamer

    WHAT?! Hell yeah Samsung, you guys ROCK!

    And thanks D-L for the heads up! On my way to collecting $50 in cold hard Google Play Store cash!

  • Dee Mann

    Can this be used on devices? might pick up a Nexus 5

    • No. Credit cannot be put towards hardware or accessories.

      • Dee Mann

        Damn…guess ill be getting lots of apps or movies

        • rach

          530 est……no more credits available, try again later. ๐Ÿ™

  • Bionicman

    ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yea just got my 50 bucks. Thanks Samsung! and Droid Life! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Mike Swizzy

    Don’t forget the Christmas sales on the Play Store in a couple weeks.

    • Big_EZ

      I hope they have a sale, but they haven’t had any large sales recently.

  • Butt Crack

    Yessssss. Totally redeemed that $50.

  • G. A .

    $50 Google Play money and Kitkat update would be Christmas in November.

  • Milind Shah

    umm, kellen and tim had posted the same thing xD just noting out

  • Ballisticn8

    Awesome offer. Took about 5 minutes from page loaded to page filled out to code received and code redeemed.

  • Paradisimo

    People can rag on Samsung all they want but I think it’s pretty damn cool that 3 weeks after purchasing my Note 3 I’m getting $50 in Google Play credit.

    • KleenDroid

      It is awesome! I do wish someone would show some love to those that boughta few S4s at full retail… ๐Ÿ™‚

      • BritchesAndHose

        Now that I think of it I haven’t gotten anything free from Samsung for the S4…

        I remember when I had my S3 though they had a Facebook promo where they sent me a free flip cover and some free NFC Tec Tiles. I thought that was pretty awesome. Too bad those Tec Tiles didn’t work any longer with my S4. I guess you have to get newer Tec Tiles for the S4…

        • dlegendary0ne

          They gave away the Jay-Z album earlier this year.

        • Charles Horse

          nothing free except a 50 gigabyte dropbox account (added to an existing account if you already had one..) that’s worth a lot to me!

      • Alseddiq

        I got 50GB from dropbox with my S4

    • Colin Huber

      Same here. So cool.

    • Mike Hilal

      It’s a mighty effective way to ensure customer loyalty…and to get people to scramble for note 3’s to get in on this offer.

  • Godzilla

    Bastards, no love for S4?

  • MichaelFranz

    about to go grab the imei off a store model….lol jk

    • StuckOnVerizonForever

      Slick deals already commited fraud and showed everyone how to make up numbwrs to get codes. Hopefully everyone has the chance to use theirs before SD steals it

      • Evan Knofsky


      • Chippah

        Just like the Scumbags who bought 15 $200 OFF contract S4-Note3’s, G2’s etc on Amazon?

        • Adrynalyne

          That isn’t mail and wire fraud though.

          • Chippah

            true, theres a guy on SD claiming he entered 123 emails with over $600 in play credit,

            But, if you go to Googles play page it says play credit has no cash value.. anyways what in the F are you going to buy on play with all that?

          • Adrynalyne

            Books and movies could eat it up fast I guess. Or Final Fantasy games.

            I supposed you could try your hand at selling the gmail account…

          • Eric Palmero

            Doesn’t play credit = google wallet money?

          • Nathan D


          • LovingGoogleUser

            There are sites and people willing to buy gift cards for money, for example “cardpool” or “plasticjungle”

            Also on a side note as of 11/21/2013 @ 10:55am (GMT-8:00) this offer is closed and says to “Check back later”

      • apdimatteo

        That would possibly explain why my code was rejected saying it was already used. What an a#$#$

    • Miguel Angel Portela

      Incidentally, one of my co-workers, a real โ€œbroโ€ type who
      bought the phone for status rather than function is planning on selling his
      because it โ€œeffing sucksโ€ let me have his IMEI. So I guess Final Fantasy for meโ€ฆ

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    I almost rather have this than 2 years free storage.

    • Godzilla


    • Big_EZ

      Not almost, I’d definitely prefer this and a microSD slot instead of free cloud storage. The cloud is great, but until I have access to it 100% of the time while in my city and on the interstates when I travel it’s almost useless.

      • Adrynalyne

        Time for me to go splurge on like…two tech books.

  • litobirdy

    Yea, saw this a few hours ago, Is there or was there anything similar for the LG G2? I got it on verizon not even a month ago yet

  • Chris woolley

    Got mine thanks samsung. ….

    • hkklife

      Awesome. Thanks DL & Samsung. Gonna stock up on a few new games and apps.
