And seriously guys. I give you screenshots, and other people have the same thing. You really think I'm trolling?

This morning I got up to find an email from Blizzard that said:
As a thank you for being a veteran World of Warcraft® subscriber, we're giving you a FREE copy of World of Warcraft to share with a friend.


I'm wondering if I can use that key with RAF. Has anyone tried yet?


Yeah, the wife, me and my brother all got the same email... well somewhat the same. Each key was different. So, I am going to have to say probably not a scam, but no real use it trying it since everyone I know either left the game for a good reason or refuses to play Blizzard games.

THe headers have been confirmed as comming from an IP from blizzard. So these do appear to be legit.

We may run more of these types of promotions in the future, so if this is something you are interested in, we suggest opting in as soon as possible so you don’t miss out.

The line right here confirms it's legit as that is a Blizzard IP aswell as it passes googles Authentication process to see if that is actually the e-mail it's being sent from.

Thanks for the info, candle lady. You might want to make a blue post on it. =] As you say, many were in fear of their keys and logs being stolen.


I just did make a post about it. :) It's also in the blue tracker as well.

We'll do our best to continue to clarify this for people where we can and greatly appreciate all of those who warned others off thinking it may be a scam. We'd much rather people be cautious than get scammed, but in this case, you're in the clear.
I received the same email. Can anyone confirm if it's Vanilla or the full game?

This is the first place I checked to see if this was true or not and most certainly, it is!! Just wanted to say thank you now that I know it's legit and I'll be able to use it. =D

I'd all but guarantee you it's just the base wow game. (No BC/Wotlk/Cata), but running 4.1 and soon to be 4.2 wow otherwise.

Hey guys, player from 2005 here. =] I also got the email! Would be wonderful if got a blue to confirm this or a community post. (Sorry if I double post!)


I find it entertaining that my account has also been around since 2005... but no email lol.
