What's the content inside the email with the 20% off code?

I got an email on the 22nd with the main story being: PlayStation Underground Presents: Mass Effect Andromeda, Out Now

I just checked the second box as well, have had the first one checked for a while, but no coupons.

It's very possible they're targeted to people who haven't bought anything in a while- I tend to grab cheapo stuff on sale pretty regularly.

Nah I buy at least 1 full priced game every month. I can spend anywhere between 60-150 depending on sales and promos.

Whoops, already grabbed the Nioh Season Pass, and GoWIII earlier this week.

Maybe I'll wait and see if I want to/can blow it on Horizon, but I have other crap to worry about and want P5.

I'm all digital and buy about 2 or 3 things a month on average, almost everything from sales.

Mine literally just came in after I read this thread, checked my email and came up empty and then checked this thread again.

Keep checking, the emails are going out right now.

Those who still haven't received it, chill out. If you don't get the weekly newsletter with the Flash Sale promotion, you have to wait. If you always get these newsletter, there is no reason to panic and you will eventually get it.

I got the newsletter but there is no discount code. Just 10x points it says.

Would have waited buying all these games on sale if I knew I was going to receive a 20% coupon...

The code expires on March 31st so you don't have much time to use it.
I'm aware, it's basically see if there's a good deal next week, if not just throw it to someone. Tempting to sell for $5 or something, just to make up for my "loss", but I've never done that before.

I'm signed up for everything and the only emails I ever get from Sony are renewal stuff and purchase confirmations :|

I own both a regular and pro console (as well as a vita) and buy digital games exclusively. My digital purchased library on PS4 just crossed 100 entries, and ~70% of those are full priced $60 games. I signed up for the newsletter years ago.

I've never gotten a single one of these e-mail PSN coupons, including the one that went around for the previously mentioned PS4 Pro console I preordered and immediately activated as my primary machine. Whatever algorithm they use to decide who they send them to is definitely not rewarding consistent, high-spending customers.

Sounds like the guy they wouldn't send it to? If your going to buy some much why would they lose money? Just saying.

Sales and discounts are to push the fence sitters. I use to buy more but since they didn't give me a refund if started buying less.

This is kinda starting to piss me off. I have their news letter with a linked account and never get these deals. It seems really random. I don't have this one and I didn't get the last one and I would have liked to have seen the history with playstation one from a couple of days ago. What must I do Sony?

Seconded

I wasn't complaining about it, just pointing out that (as you're suggesting) they seem to send these out to incentivize rather than reward.
