[Free Trial Extension Details]
All users who registered a FINAL FANTASY XIV service account and purchased a character by November 19, 2010.
* Character purchases must have been carried out no later than November 19, 2010 at 23:59 (PST).
* Accounts terminated due to User Agreement infractions are ineligible for extension.
* Holders of multiple service accounts may receive extensions on all accounts.
* Users who took advantage of the first free trial extension announced on October 15, 2010 are fully eligible for this extension.
I think that mean if you didn't hold an account prior to the 19th you aren't eligible for extended free play.
