Pre-Order Bonuses

Dear A-Net,

I purchased the GW2:PoF a few days ago and still haven't received my CD key. I have been in contact with the merchant I bought the key from, but they haven't provided the key for me yet.

If I get the CD Key after launch tonight, am I able to still get my pre-purchase bonuses because the key was purchased before the launch?

  • Unlikely, automatically. You would have to contact the CS Team, and it would probably require having purchased from an Authorized Retailer.

    You can contact the CS Team via the 'Support' link above/below.

    Good luck.

    You're awesome, Inculpatus. I appreciate your getting back to me. The retailer is (I am certain) an authorized retailer. I just don't remember if I can name the retailer on the forums (TOS Update and all).

    OH! I know! The retailer's name rhymes with Fame Top. I have been in contact with Fame Top's CS team on the phone, FB and via email and haven't had a resolution since Sunday. I ordered my CD key from Fame Top using's the Fame Top app and using trade credit. I have the order confirmation number, just not the key. I have had very little problems with Fame Top's brick and mortar. This first time using digital was a bad experience that I won't repeat.

  • Yes, you can say Game Stop. Lol. I would create a ticket asap, so that you can send in the information before launch.

    Good luck.

    Ticket submitted. Thank you, Inculpatus. I will let you know how this turns out as we can learn from this experience of mine, I am sure!

  • I hope it all works out for the best, and you get a definite response before tomorrow. Otherwise, I'd probably ask for a refund from Game Stop, and purchase directly from ArenaNet before the bonus period expires. If, that is, pre-purchase bonuses were important to me. (Which is why I always purchase directly through ArenaNet, just to avoid any unpleasant situations.)

    It did work out. Gamestop gave me my key at 830pm CST last night. So I am set and got my bonus shield skin (was what I was looking forward to). Thanks for sticking with me, Inculpatus cedo!

  • You are most welcome! May we both be blessed with uber loot in Elona! :wink:

    Oh! Don't forget to update your ticket to let the CS Team know you 'no longer need assistance', so that they can assist others more quickly. =)
