Pre-ordered CE at Gamestop - question.

General Discussion
Hello,

I pre-ordered my collectors edition of RoS at Gamestop because I enjoy having the physical copy of the game. Will I still get my pre-order goodies?

Thanks,
Air
Add the game to your bnet account till march 31st and you will get the preorder bonuses. (This also works if you don't preorder, just buy it before the 31st)
You will probably have code sheets in the box or it will issue them when you attach your cd key
Awesome. Thank you.

You'll definitely be able to claim those pre-order items as long as you redeem your Reaper of Souls retail game key on or before March 31, 2014. So, make sure to claim your key as soon as you can, and we look forward to seeing you in Sanctuary!

Grim..thought Blizz changed the date for hard-copys to APRIL 21??
Nope. They messed up on the start page, but since fixed it.

Apparently that date was only intended for Europe...and it got a lot of people's hopes up here in the US

Yup that really pissed me off that I chose to buy a physical copy and now I am being penalised for it.

And the CMs completely ignore it too. If I close my eyes it'll go away.

Thanks Blizzard.

How on earth are you being penalized?

Because it has to physically shipped to me and won't get to me until after March 31st
Because it has to physically shipped to me and won't get to me until after March 31st

The most ironic part of this is it will affect those like yourself who pre-ordered the Collector's Edition. And before someone says release date/expedited shipping, not all shipping destinations have a release date option (APO/FPO, Guam, Alaska, Hawaii and most international addresses which places like Walmart and Amazon ship to) nor are there guarantees on any of the faster shipping options (not everyone lives in the contiguous 48 states where the distribution channels allows for more flexible shipping options).

Thus from a logistics point of view, the short 6 day redemption window for retail copies being instituted by Blizzard, is asinine given that the last minute decision to do these pre-order bonuses (which have all the hallmarks now of being a way to boost those numbers given there was no initial incentive to digitally pre-order). All the decision makers want to do is to lock in as many digital pre-order sales by the time their Q1 2014 books close (which is by no coincidence, on March 31st).

It's also a means to incentivize some of these folks to digitally order a standard edition (which many will do so they can play on launch).
