Ninja'd? Giving away free 10 dollar vouchers for being a "loyal Playstation member"

http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/02/20/playstation-is-giving-out-free-money

In what you can only assume is a move to completely make February 20th all about PlayStation, Sony is giving certain PlayStation Network users free money. Just after midnight Central time in North America, certain PSN users found the following message in their inboxes along with a PSN code for $10.

Don't mind if I do...

No word on what the criteria is for getting the free money, but you'd assume it's for spending a certain amount of cash on the PlayStation Store as it's rewarding folks for being "a loyal customer." Sony has run programs in the past where spending a certain amount got you a certain amount of money back, but those programs are usually advertised.

Did you get it? Let us know in the comments below -- there are rumors of different dollar amounts out there. Then, make sure you catch Wednesday's IGN livestream of the Future of PlayStation event, which we assume is the reveal of the PlayStation 4.

Nice

And to think after 10 loyal years with XBL, all I got was an avatar helmet.

Who just got that PSN Visa card, was it Kirk? I wonder if getting that card is a pre-req for getting this $10. I haven't checked my system since yesterday when I checked to see if Vanquish was up.

Oskar got one.

Makes sense, since you'd have to be mentally challenged to spend over $500 on XBL.

Isn't Oskar the one handing them out?

Wait, I thought last year Microsoft gave everyone free Xbox's if they were members for 10+ years?

I got it for $5 on the iPad. Vice City, I mean. San Andreas probably won't be out until this year.

Oh, I was talking about actual gaming console games.

:P, just kidding, just kidding.

same here. and even better, for my birthday last month, they sent me 20 MS moneys, which translates to roughly 25 cents!

I think I may pick up Pixeljunk Monsters. Been wanting to get that for a while, thanks to PC gaming getting me into tower defense.

The people who do GTA are really good with the controls though. I mean I beat GTA III, and now in Vice City, I just got the mansion, and I'm about to start going around buying up properties.

I may grab that. Such a staple of my youth. I wish I knew how many hours I wasted in each of those games.

Time being happy is NEVER wasted time.

I'm very curious to see what constitues as being "loyal". I have PS+ and have spent some money in the PSN store, so hopefully I'll qualify! Would be great, as I was planning on buying the new decks in Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 soon anyways!
