Thank you for the help.
Contact the BBB. I've yet to find a company who wouldn't help me out when I went through the BBB (and you usually get someone higher up in the food chain).

Yes, I knew that. I tried telling others here but they would not listen.

It was FatWallet'ed. I guess FW spreads words faster than other forums.

When HOLIDAYGIFT didn't work for me, I called the Borders where I bought the Reader and complained. A few days later I got an email from Sony with a new code.

I've been emailing them non-stop with no response. What number did you all call?

Question


When I enter the promo code "HOLIDAYGIFT" I get an error saying the coupon code is not valid.
Answer


This holiday promotion had a limited quantity of "HOLIDAYGIFT" code redemptions available, as stated in the accompanying code terms (see below). Due to an overwhelming demand, the limit has already been reached.

As with all other viral code promotions such as this one, the promotion ends either when the limit has been reached or at the promotion end date, whichever one comes first. In this case the limit was reached prior to the promotion end date of January 15.

Per the terms that came with the coupon:

"Redeem Code by 1/15/08. Must be 13 yrs. or older. Limit 1 Code per account/individual (each Code good for one credit ("Credit") for $50 in eBook downloads). Must spend Credit balance by 3/31/08. Limited quantity of "HOLIDAYGIFT" code redemptions available for promotion. Full terms/computer requirements @ ebookstore.sony.com/cardterms."
