$50 CONNECT credit for early customers - expires?

There is this special offer for early customers to get a $50 credits towards purchases of e-books through CONNECT ... and I remember reading somewhere that this offer expires sometime this year (when exactly?).

Would be a shame of course if the delayed Readers don't ship before the offer expires ;(

Hmm, have to claim it by 12/31/06, and have to use it by 01/31/06. Not as attractive a deal as I first imagined.

Perhaps they'll extend it if they have a lot of orders they can't fill for a month or two.... I won't hold my breath on that one.

That's the right idea, but I think you have a typo on your expire date. Here's the text they have:

TO PARTICIPATE IN THE OFFER YOU MUST COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING AT CONNECTTM EBOOKS (the "Service" or "CONNECT eBooks"), ACCESSIBLE AT http://ebooks.connect.com (the "Site") ON OR BEFORE DECEMBER 31, 2006:
(i) register for a CONNECT eBooks end user account; and
(ii) authorize your Sony® Reader.

-----

YOUR CONNECT eBOOKS CREDIT MUST BE SPENT ON OR BEFORE JANUARY 31, 2007; ANY UNUSED CREDIT AMOUNT REMAINING AS OF JANUARY 31, 2007 AT 11:59:59 P.M. PST WILL EXPIRE AT THAT TIME.

I just got mine set up. The promotional coupon ends 2/1/07 according to the details in the "cart". As an FYI, there is no need for a CC or an address when authorizing the Reader so overseas users should be able to utilize the $50.00.

I would guess that in the future, the best way for OvS users to buy BBeB books would be to get someone from the US to send them a gift certificate. I.e., OvS user paypals US user $$ and then US user sends the GC.

Off to purchase my first book.

If you register how long before you get the $50,- credit? I registred but didn't get any credit.

I believe it should be there right away. I think it was for me, if I remember right. I think I didn't see it until I put a book in my cart and went to the checkout screen, where it showed my credit.

Some others have posted about some things they had to do to get the credit, so maybe that will help you troubleshoot if it didn't work for you.

Take a look at the Transaction History on your "account" page, it should show up there first of all. And I think I remember getting an e-mail about it too....

Nope it's not in 'Transaction History" and I even tried putting a book in my cart. No $50,-, no go.

Not to be smart, but just to make sure I understand -- you do mean that you registered the Reader in the Connect store, not just that you created a Connect Account....

'cause it should happen more or less instantly when you do that.

I did register in the connect store and after that I authorized my PC and Reader.
