20
Found 22nd Sep 2014
Just got a email saying if you top up £50 in the store using PayPal you get £10 back into your PayPal account (but goes towards your purchase of a item, so you get £10 off)

1. Sign In
Sign into your Sony Entertainment Network account from 22 September to 3 October on the PlayStation Store. Access your account settings, scroll to 'Wallet', select 'Add Funds to Wallet'.

2. Top Up
Top up £50 or more using PayPal. There's no code to enter - your offer will automatically be applied to your purchase when you top up.

3. Save
You won’t see the savings from your offer on the PlayStation Store checkout page. It will appear on your PayPal receipt and in your PayPal account. The payment and credit may show in your PayPal account as 'pending' for up to an hour after redemption. As you’ve been specially chosen for this offer, you won’t be able to transfer it to another PayPal account.

Offer expires 03/10/2014

*Subject to the following terms and conditions of this promotion (“Promotion”). You may participate in (and hereby receive the benefit of) the Promotion (as an “Eligible Customer”) only if PayPal has sent you an email inviting you to do so.

Great deal, but I've only ever used CD Keys for credit so I suspect I won't be getting one of these E-Mails

I would think that you'd be more likely to get one in order to entice you to use paypal more.

Yeah I NEVER buy credit through PSN directly but I have received one of these emails today. I'll be leaving it though since I don't really want to top up £50 in all honesty and the UK Store seems to be ridiculously overpriced these days.

i had this email and though "wow" but....Its £50 topup. I though it was too good to be true until i read it.

Great if u want a game as its a free tenner

Possibly I guess, I was working under the assumption they'd have no idea I was interested in gaming so wouldn't bother sending me anything, but we'll see.

Considering you can often get a £50 top-up code for around £40 from the likes of Tesco anyway using a voucher, this deal doesn't offer much in my opinion.

Great deal, just in time for them season passes.

Considered posting this as it's efficient, but:

1 - CDKeys is the same (£20 for £25, £30 for £35),
2 - It's for individual accounts, not open to all (I believe),
3 - UK PSN prices are inflated as hell to have these deals only creating (comparatively) fair purchases opposed to deals.

I'm certain that is because the PS4 is now doing well in America. The PS3 tanked in the States so Sony went out of their way to secure European customers to the extent that Americans often complained about the offers and prices on the EU Stores. It can't be a coincidence that everything has now changed.

It's for a similar reason that you can buy a brand new Xbox One for a little over £200 in Japan.

Thank the lord we're able to have USA PSN accounts, taking advantage of deals that save over 400% (no exaggeration). EU PSN has been terrible for a while now and I only ever recollect our PS+ being decent.

Well to be fair they get the same crap on PS4 IGC that we do. Nobody seems to be getting a decent deal out of that at the moment unfortunately.

PS4, that's true, but then again, PS4 has very little content (sadly). PS+ would suck as a deal, too, if I didn't have Vita and PS3 along with the PS4.

It's always been possible to have a US account. I've one, a Hong Kong one and Japanese one for ages.

That seems like an exaggeration. How could you save 400%? You'd have to be saving four cents per cent paid, which sounds like they're paying you back about four times what you pay them oO

There are titles on US' PSN that cost £20 in the UK consistently (translating to around $32.20) and they're regularly on sale over there for around $2 - $4 (£3 to £6). You think that doesn't deserve attention and mockery? Persona to Shadow of Colossus, even comparing new PS4 releases (less significant difference), mere economic differences doesn't explain how one market paying considerably higher in various areas.

I know about the differences, but surely digital sale prices are chosen by publisher not platform... anyway it's irrelevant, I was only in passing making a joke about the literal words, you seem to have quite misinterpreted the percentage system...
but also yes economic differences literally are the explanation.

I was expressing 400% as x4. You took my words out of that context, though, to belittle a forced error, which is not cool, in my opinion, as it's practically inventing mistakes for me. Our economies, too, are LITERALLY different, of course, but I was speaking about specific factors such as purchasing power to gross domestic product.

Why are you nitpicking any words that are not absolutely clarified in definition and applying any alternative meaning without considering the context? Whhhhhy? You want me to feel awkward or are you being awkward with interpretation?

No, it just didn't make sense. x4 still doesn't make sense as it's just the same thing, and no it wasn't out of context as I quoted the whole message and the chain of quotes was just above.
You call it belittling but I just explained in no unclear words that it was a joke in passing. I'm not sure what was forced about the error, since you spoke first with your own freedoms, and GDP at PPP per capita is an economic statistic so how can its difference show anything but an economic conclusion?
It wasn't nitpicking, it was reasoning. I just wanted to better understand what I was reading. I didn't apply any alternative meaning, unless the correct meaning is the alternative meaning, in which case I'm curious about the non-alternative meaning, which is why the first thing I asked was a question.
