Buy HotS @ Gamestop

Posts: 170
I just called Gamestop and the guy said they don't have the keys yet, but they heard they might be getting some in within the next week.

Called another gamestop in my area and they said the same thing so it may be based on where you live.

That been confirmed for those who purchased it through amazon. I think the main cause for confusion is Gamestop and the fact that some people receive keys with their pre-purchase and others (like me) did not...

Some gamestops are handing out beta keys with pre-oders, picked some up in my area today.

They told me at my store they're getting them in December because the game isn't being released until march. I guess I could've just preordered and checked the receipt but I already placed it with amazon. I can wait a few more days.

He's right! I just went and pre-ordered the Collector's edition and got a key on my receipt, downloading right now!


How did you redeem your key? I went to the website on the receipt but there is no option for HotS.

the Gamestop associate didn't say anything when i preorder my game. However after i got home and checked the receipt, the access key is below the bar-code and it said: The following code will grant StarCraft II Heart of the Storm Beta Access through Battle.Net.

Storm lol but the key works !!!

Go to your battle.net account page and click on add a game, then enter the code there. It's this website not a different one.

I thought about something earlier this morning. Did everyone who Preordered at Gamestop have a reward card/email on file with them or no? I'm thinking the reason that some people got keys at the time of purchase and some didn't has to do with whether or not they can Email you the key later. It seems strange that it would be an offer only running in certain places. Can anyone who did get the key from Gamestop let us know?

They did have my phone number on file. I don't have a rewards card though. Not sure if either makes a difference...

Something just doesn't seem quite right here. I feel like you're missing something.
I'm busy wondering why people would buy from gamestop 0.0

such a shady place.


What? I've bought nearly all my games from there, specifically StarCraft II WoL.

100% true. I went into a gamestop just asking around. The associate at the counter originally said no but he did some digging and found out that when he checked the SC2 "backup codes" and saw a beta access code which ended up printing on my receipt. Apparently, as of 7:30 pm EST yesterday, their websites and POS screens did not show the beta code. I went home, and it worked when I entered it on B.net site. Installed it and played a couple games last night. Good alternative to spending the full $40. Only paid 5 bucks.
