I didn’t receive any e-mail whatsoever (and, yeah, I have communications from Sony enabled and usually receive the avatars for my platinums). :(

Got the code, thanks. It was hidden in plain site. 

 

For the people having troubles, download the email, open it in the notepad, copy the encripted base64 to some reader online and then look for your code. It doesn't even take 5 minutes 

 

Saving the email as an .eml file and opening it on a browser should also do it!

This worked. I thought I didn't have a code. Thanks!

Pretty sure I have seen someone mention that the code is linked to your account, so it won't work for someone else.

as always, no mail for me. And this is funny because i have spent more then 3000 euros in sales (i have 2671 elements at the moment). And yet, no mail for me. The only mails that i receive are the wallet refunding ones and the purchasing thanksgiving ones.

How did you manage it? Outlook doesn't seem to have a download option online and even forwarding it to a Gmail account doesn't seem to work for me either.

I'll likely not use it myself but would be happy to give my code away to someone else if I have one.

No I did not.

 

Every EU player who has enabled commercial e-mails in their account should get this e-mail. The fact that a lot of people don't receive it is not by design. That a lot of people who did get the e-mail could not see the code is not by design. Sony messes up... in varying degrees and all of the time. For example: I got two e-mails, one with "code unavailable" and one with a valid code.

 

They really want every EU player to receive this code and buy something in the store with it. They can't send this e-mail to everyone of course, you need to opt-in or otherwise it's spam and Sony gets in trouble.

 

Also, they tailor the tag line to your own spending habits to personalize it and make it more convincing:

- Have you bought a lot recently? Then thank your for your purchases and have this code as a reward.

- Have you not bought a lot recently? Let us entice you to do so with this code.

- Have you never bought anything ever? Then have this code to make your first purchase.

This is how marketing works

Wow, at first a big thank you for your detailed description. At second, yeah your text is logical. I have activate the mails, I got so many, but this time there was no mail. The fact, why I was disappointed, is that for the NA store they select sometimes the ppl "random"

If that is the case then holy heck. I know that sending millions of e-mails in a short time span is not the easiest thing to do anymore but a company like Sony should be able to pull that off I hope.

 

Anyway, I think it could be interesting if people who did not receive the e-mail would list their provider instead of their recent spending habits. I am with Gmail and received the e-mail without problems.

 

In general Gmail is fantastic for handling bulk email on the receiving end. But I do know that Microsoft (Outlook/Hotmail/etc) is pretty bad at it. They will often drop e-mails they consider 'spam' (and that treshold is low) completely into /dev/null without even a notification to the sender. Some may even get through whch makes it all the more puzzling and sometimes simply impossible to solve.

I really don't know how to explain, when you download the email it will automatically open it in an Outlook format, just right click it and ask to open it in a notepad. 

 

To download the email on Gmail follow this https://support.google.com/mail/answer/9261412?hl=en

Got mine, thanks for the Links and all infos here, that's great :D

 

It works only on 1 title right? Not on like 3-4 if i get them together? 

 

I Followed the Info on the Linked site here and the Guy said to Download Mozzilla thunderbird for the Mails, with that you can actually download the Mail itself.

Apparently, the selection was random:

 

 

I am a regular costumer for years and I didn't receive anything. RNG stuff is never my friend, though, so I'm not very surprised...
