Update on Coupons for Substance Painter 2018 Upgrades

Hi everyone,

You may have noticed that there was a lot of confusion around the loyalty coupons to upgrade from Substance Painter 2 to Substance Painter 2018 during the sale.

This was caused my multiple issues and misunderstandings colliding at the worst time possible and we are sorry for the trouble that ensued.

The upgrade coupon was supposed to let you upgrade for 33% of the original price ($50 instead $149). Since unfortunately we didn't manage to have this coupon properly available by the end of the sale, we are seting up a new -66% discount which will be available until the end of the week.

The discount will be applied automatically to the purchase price on the Store page for Substance Painter 2018.
