I dont know that, thats true. Buddy of mine has had a PSPlus account from ps3, entered his free trial and it worked fine.
His plus must have expired before he redeemed the code.

Do you see "Only new subscribers" anywhere in there? It's there for Music Unlimited. I quote,
"**MUSIC UNLIMITED TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Only for new subscribers to the Premium Plan."
Do you see the difference? Sony needs to make right by us.
That certainly IS threefold surprise, in the surprise of how loyal members are being screwed.
Sony needs to make right by us.
They gave you $10 for nothing and you're still complaining? Get over yourself. You can always redeem the voucher when your current Plus membership expires.
I agree, if it is for new members only by law I believe they are required to indicate that on the voucher it's self. I do not believe leagally they can imply that it is for new members only without stating it on the voucher.
Not to mention since I purchased two PS4's I had to create another PSN account so my children could play PS+ on the second PS4 and the new account would not accept any of the 30 days free or the 7 day free trials found in the disc versions of the games.
I just called GameStop and asked them and they said as far as they knew the 30 day deal was a pre-order offer only. I searched both box's and can't find any mention of "Free 30 days Plus for New Subscribers".
