No, because there's no way to do it. It's not possible to sell iOS apps anywhere other than the App Store, and Apple does not offer any way of creating discount coupon codes for the App Store. (All they provide is the ability to create up to 100 promo codes for each version, which are free copies you can send out for promotions.) And even if they did, there's no way for the App Store to recognise our existing customers and offer a coupon, so we would have to send out several hundred thousand manually.

So I'm afraid it's full price for everyone, but hopefully you'll think it's worth it!

All the best,
Keith

And ... if anyone should get a price break, it should be Windows users. We, after all, have to work on Windows machines.
