i got a playstation 3 with the usual 30 day plus trial, but when i try to put in the redeem code it say its not correct (which it is...) or not valid? it expires 3/31/2013
You may have entered it in incorrectly. Make sure that you have not mistaken a G for a six, or a O for a zero (or vice-versa). If you still can't figure it out, then e-mail a digital photo of the code card, and your receipt to Playstation customer support (https://support.us.playstation.com/app/ask). They can redeem it for you, if it is valid.
