Default Playstataion Plus Message September 20, 2012

So, my friend and I received a message on psn for playstation plus. His was a free trial and he does not have psplus. I do have psplus and it said that it's been awhile since Iv'e had it and told me I should sign back up.

So I was wondering. Anybody get a message like, "thanks for being a plus member! here's $1,000,000 and a unlimited supply of gaming gear for the rest of your life!" or something(pretty much anything saying that you are a plus member).

It's from [PSN] so it's not spam.

I got it as well. Pretty sweet since mine was about to expire and I'm short on cash because of two big releases this month.

A message/email telling me to get something I already have... Yeah, I consider that spam.

Well, our definitions of spam must be different. If it's someone sending me a message saying 'Send this to 20 people and you'll get a free month of PS+!', that I consider spam. If a Sony representative sent me a message saying that you've received a free month of and comes with a link to get it, I don't consider that spam. Not to mention, the message was from [PSN] so yeah. But if you consider it spam, cool. I don't understand why you're questioning something you're getting for free.

I didn't get anything for free. I got a spam message for free. Seriously. It doesn't have anything in it other than a link to purchase(keyword here) what I already have(as stated in previous post).

^exactly. Usually you'd have to do something in order to be emailed, right? Like sign up for the first time on playstation. Then it asks you if you want to receive emails from playstation, nothing about receiving messages. This is the 3rd one from psn, and Iv'e had 3 others from random game dev's offering me something or advertising their game.

Alright. If you say so. I just redeemed my code and I got an extra month for free.

And while it may not be related, they've invited me to betas through PSN messages.

Odd. Don't know what to tell you about that. Guess we got different messages then.
