If you have proof that you bought this from Sony directly via their site and the cashback was or is advertised then under EU law they have to honor that contract of sale

Well that's interesting as that is false advertising and they shouldn't be doing it - So take all the screen shots and phone them and explain then they will have to honor the cashback or feel the wrath of trading standards as that is against the law and can be deemed as a honey trap albeit some countries will see that wording in a different light

Also according to Sony's cashback claim site ISME.com is listed as a valid retailer
