Just got this email. Figured others might want to check their spam filters or junk mail:

"IMPORTANT ACCOUNT NOTICE | ACTION REQUIRED

Dear Sony Pictures Store U.S. Customer:

We would like to update you that Sony Pictures Store will be shutting down its website and discontinuing all related operations in the U.S. effective January 31, 2019.
The good news is that by taking the actions below you will be able to:
Receive a complimentary movie on Movies Anywhere!"

There's a targeted link in the email to redeem one of a selection of movies:
13 going on 30
The Grudge
Underworld
The Water Horse
Big Fish
Maid in Manhattan
Freedomland
Lockout

Hello all:

This is just a PSA for those who have had an account with Sony Pictures Store. I received an email today stating they are going to cease operations in the U.S. effective January 31, 2019.

For those that receive/received the email. Do not disregard or trash it right away. On the bottom of the email, there is a button that will allow you to redeem a free movie (button says: Choose your movie!).

Movies to choose from:
13 Going On 30
The Grudge
Underworld
The Water Horse
Big Fish
Maid in Manhattan
Freedomland
Lockout

I chose Underworld and it redeemed in HD on Movies Anywhere.

Free movie redemption expires January 31, 2019.

I saw the email and grabbed Big Fish since I already own Underworld. I wish they had a better selection.

The email title is kinda of spammy/phishy, "ACCOUNT ALERT: Action Required" but it is from Sony Pictures. I thought it was malicous at first but I always proceed with caution and clicked the link, copied the code and then went directly to sonypictures.com to redeem. I also didn't bother clicking the vudu and moviesanywhere links in the email since I knew they were linked.

Subject line says: ACCOUNT ALERT

The 3rd button on the e-mail says: "Choose your movie!" Get a choice of (mostly old) movies to add to Movies anywhere for free.
