The screenshot I posted was from the igg campaign and not from my perk. Thus you could see this "regulation" by yourself. I don't want to be rude, but when you got your perk on November 22nd you had a lot of time to make sure how long the payment is refundable. But that is just my opinion. (btw: i get it that dates between December 21 and 31 are both before January )
I don't know where you come from, but (as far as i know) in Europe you can - because of legal regulation - "withdraw" from the contract within 14 days after the delivery of the device. This norm gives you the opportunity to make sure, that the device corresponds with your expectations. If you withdraw you get a full refund!
I don't know exactly, but I think there is a thread, where someone from eve-tech said, that everyone who got a perk will have this opportunity. Maybe @iKirin can help you here! If so then there is no need to demand the refund of your payment just now - if you don't like the device you can send it back.
Hope you find a solution for your problem!
