I received an email yesterday stating that you are getting PS+ 15 months for the price of 12.

I have a 12 month code sitting on my shelf but i am not sure if it only applies to buying on the store or if my code will work the same.

Here are the terms and conditions. I can't see if it will apply to me or not?

Never mind. I have had another look at it and it does state only available through the store and it also says it will auto renew.
Just put in my code for another 12 months and that's all i got. No extra 3 months so you must have to buy it directly through the store for it to work.
I got that email as well. I haven't looked at the full T&C, but the actual email says
Ready for something special? For a limited time only, if you join PlayStation Plus with a 12-month membership from PlayStation®Store we’ll give you three extra months of subscription time for free.
As we have now discovered, unless your current subscription happens to expire over that period, you cannot purchase it. Therefore, you cannot stack it on an existing subscription, and therefore the vast majority of PS Plus users are not eligible.

So, that limits the financial hit on Sony from their existing income-stream and it basically becomes pretty much a new-customers-only offer.

Bad show Sony. Bad show !!
