YMMV free 10 dollar psn sent from Sony

Hey everyone.

Just logged on to see Sony has sent my account a free 10 dollar PSN credit.

I never received the last 10 dollar credit but did spend 600 dollars moving my collection to digital through sales the past couple months.

Hope everyone who didn't get it last can get it now and if you're lucky hopefully you can double dip.

Happy holidays!

Did you upgrade to a PS Slim or PS Pro any time recently?

Yes but I never got it when everyone else did last month. Assuming this is for the holidays and unrelated.

I have now gotten 2 $10 credits after setting two of my accounts as primary (my older account and newer account). before redeeming it shows a code so I was able to add both $10 credits to my one new account.

Actually, you're better off assuming it's because you did upgrade and they just haven't sent everyone a code yet TBH. They probably had thousands of upgrades and they gave out the credit in waves? Oh well. 10 is 10. Enjoy :)

Nope, this is your code for upgrading

Highly doubt it would take 45 days to roll it out.

The other topic would likely still be active if they were still actively giving those out.

Took about 6 weeks after I got a slim before I got my $10 code. Make no mistake, this is 110% for your upgrade

Canada,Eh!
I've recently upgraded from 3 launch PS4's down to 2 PS4 Pro's.
Neither are enabled as Primary systems, as I have no need to.
Wondering if those two upgrades will trigger two $10 codes, or one, or none.
Will wait and see I guess.

I did an upgrade I got no credit.....
When did you do it? I went and got it done last Saturday, and got the voucher earlier today.

This is definitely part 2 of the $10 PS4 upgrade credit!

Do you have to make PS4 Pro as Primary? I really don't want to do that as it works perfectly for me as non. To change them do I just de-activate OG PS4 and then activate the Pro?

then wait a few weeks to see if $10 code comes, and if not switch them back I guess.

It definitely is for the PS4 Pro upgrade.

The only accounts on my PS4 Pro systems that got it are ones that were activated on the system as the "Primary PS4".
I received the code on two accounts I had never made purchases on.

In total I received three $10 PSN Canada codes, and one $10 PSN USA code. I am not sure if the Japanese PSN or European PSN IDs I set up would have
received a $10 credit had I activated those as being attached to the PS4 as a "Primary PS4". Overall, it was two $10 codes on each PS4 Pro.

For other regions I make PSN IDs to download exclusive demos off the JPN PSN store, and the European one because not all of those demos make
it to the North American PSN store.

They sent a $10 credit to one of my PSN IDs I set up with a fake USA address. The $10 code that went to the PSN ID with the USA address
does not work on the CDN PSN store so I used it on PS4 dynamic themes from the USA PSN store. I never made purchases on that PSN ID I set up with a USA address.
