I'm thinking they should be giving away these credits to everybody with a media hub capable device, just to get people using it!

I'm guessing that usage of the system is pretty low (how many of us have actually spent money on there?). If they give away some credits, it might get people to try it and maybe continue using it.

So I sent an email to the link posted by holes45, simply stated: Please send me a pin for my media hub credit. I added my name and phone number to the message. This is the response I got:

Thank you for your email. You will receive a unique code to access your gift on the Media Hub application by this week Friday via email.

If you have not already done so please forward your new Epic 4G phone number. We will need your phone number in order to assign your code for the offer.

Please look for your code in the next few days.

I purchased my phone 6 weeks ago but it looks like they are going to give me the credit.

Contacted Sprint via chat and they gave me the $50 credit.
You are saying Sprint applied a $50 credit to you general Sprint account and you can see it listed on your account right now (it would be posted within one or two hours)? That would be very strange since this is a samsung promotion and the site to email for your pin is a sumsung contracted marketing firm

do you see a $50 credit applied to your sprint account and what does the associated note say? As it is not uncommon for ecare to promise credits and have then nixed.

I have got my fingers crossed, why not, but to be clear the terms quite specifically say:
