Random $5 Message?

10 replies 461 views Edited Feb 16, 2013

So I was playing Playstation Home and I get a message from I.D. [PSN] giving me $5 in a link. I click the link, it takes me to the store, and it adds $5 to my wallet.

 

Now the question is why did I get $5?

Wow, I should have that problem. Sony sending me money. Maybe Sony was charging you sales tax when they should not have. Maybe you were in a rebate promotion. Who knows? You can call Sony PlayStation Support at (800) 345-SONY. This is the same phone number as (800) 345-7669. But if it were me, I would not look a gift horse in the mouth. I would just accept the money.

That is one of the official PSN accounts. Nothing to worry about.

You mostly can't. They got a refund on something.

I received a random $5 too!! Haha. I read elsewhere they are just targeting random accounts... The message said something like. 'We hope you are enjoying your experience with PLaystation'. Or something or another. Not complaining!! Time to rent a movie. Smiley Very Happy

Cool. So $7.99 gets taken from my account for getting a game marked as free and now you're telling me they're sending $5 out and I don't get one? Thanks Sony Smiley Sad

Booke, it wasn't a refund.

 

I was wondering how I, and all of these other people, got the $5 so maybe I could also get the extra $5 on my other account.

 

 

Maybe it's from all the money I've been spending, who knows.

Pretty cool stuff.

 

FYI: Keep in mind guys that official accounts display the following PSN logo next to them
