Hi guys, I've seen that Google is offering a 4-month free trial for Google Play Music including Youtube Red as part of its cyber week deal. You can check this link here: 


It seems the deal works well in the US, and some countries in Europe. But when I tried to redeem the offer by using accounts that have never subscribed to Google Play Music before, it only says "Error processing coupon Invalid coupon code". When I logged into Google Play Music, I can even see the ads saying "4 Months of Music on Us", but the same message came up when clicking. Did anyone successfully get this offer? Or is NZ just excluded, again?

In your link




The deal should only be valid to new customers that have not tried Google Play Music before, but it’s worth a try anyway, as some people get lucky. It’s also only valid in the US, so keep that in mind as well.

Thanks for reply. I'm using a new account. I also checked on other sites (e.g. Reddit), people from Germany, France, Canada and UK are also able to get the 120 days free trial deal... it seems it's not exclusive to the US, but don't know if NZ is included.

I can confirm that I only get an offer of two months trial if I go to the NZ google play store, and that although I can get to the four month offer page if I use a VPN, I also got the error message.

Thanks for confirming. Guess we are not getting the 120-day deal. Sad. But still better than nothing isn't it.
