Amazon Gives $50 Credit to HD DVD Player Purchasers

From an email I, a lucky Xbox 360 HD DVD drive owner, received:

As someone who purchased an HD DVD player from us before February 23, 2008,* you might like to hear about a special offer available from

New technologies don’t always work out as planned. We at value our customer relationships more than anything and would like to support customers who purchased these players by offering a credit good for $50 off any products sold by** Just use promotional code [redacted] when checking out. The code is valid through April 9, 2009, so you have plenty of time to use your credit. Purchases from third-party merchants on our site are not eligible

I’ll take it. I’d already made my peace with my stupid purchase, so this is just free money.

    I didn’t get the email but I email amazon customer support and they told me it had been applied directly to my account for the hd-dvd player I had purchased april 2007. And sure enough it shows up in the checkout process at amazon (for items it applies to.)
