I recently applied a $50 PlayStation Network credit to my account, but I only used part of it. How long will this money stay in my account, and does it ever expire? Will I get a notice if they do? Either way, what happens?

It stays in your wallet, fairly sure that'd be illegal to just wipe your funds –  Domocus Jan 23 '13 at 23:09
@Domocus - Of course there will be a clause in their legal jargon that says if Sony goes under, or even just scraps the store, that funds are non-refundable in this case. –  Robotnik Jan 24 '13 at 3:14
Well, yes, but if it was going under, what would be the point of buying something on the store? :p –  Domocus Jan 24 '13 at 3:24

According to Sony themselves, your wallet funds do not expire.

A PSN gift card however, does, if not applied to your wallet within a year of purchase.

I got like 4 reminer emails over the course of two years telling me I had funds in my wallet, too! –  Fluttershy Jan 23 '13 at 23:59
