Nvidia game code for GTX 1070 or 1080 purchase

Hi, I recently purchased a new Acer gaming laptop with the GTX 1070 graphics card in it. Nvidia is advertising a promotion for a free game code for either For Honor or Ghost Recon Wildlands with any purchase of a 1070 or 1080 graphics card or notebook with one in it. I did not receive any code for this, just wondering if Best Buy is participating in this promotion as they are listed on Nvidia's website as a retailer.

Hello Bush072086,

 

Congratulations on the new gaming laptop! Those are always fun investments. And a new game is certainly a great way to break it in. I'll be happy to speak with you today.

 

Best Buy regularly participates in NVidia offers which include a free game, but our offers will sometimes vary by eligible products, start or end dates, etc. At this time I do not see any free game offer listed on any of our various laptops, so it is possible we are not currently participating. I will do a little digging and let you know what I learn.

 

Thanks,

Mike,

Not to hijack this thread, but same exact issue. However, I purchased the GTX 1080 today and would also qualify for this promo. Please send me private message on your findings as well

Bought an EVGA GTX 1070 SC and didn't receive any free game code!

I recently bought an EVGA GTX 1070 SC at BestBuy retail store, I went ahead and bought it because it was on sale on NewEgg.com and did a price match for $399.99. I just remembered that when you buy a GPU from NVIDIA or Retail store that is NVIDIA GPU Base, you will receive one of the free games with GTX 10 Series. I checked my reciept and there's no code nor instructions on how to redeem one of the games from NVIDIA. If the promotional codes are over or am I too late for that? if so let me know!

I contacted EVGA directly and they informed me that you are participating in this promotion.

EVGA Support Email

(MY NAME), thank you for contacting the EVGA Customer Service Team. My name is Matthew Decker and I will answer your question today.


Your Answer:

Hello,

I apologize for any confusion. The Nvidia game promotion is available through EVGA.com to customers who purchase their qualifying product directly through EVGA.com

You may want to check with your place of purchase to see if they are offering the same or a similar promotion for your purchase. In some cases the retailer may have put the code on your purchase receipt.

Best Buy is participating in the game promotion so I would consider contacting their customer support if needed.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with in regard to your EVGA products by contacting support at support@evga.com or 888-881-3842 for further assistance.

Thank you,
EVGA                  "

 

So is EVGA wrong or is BestBuy messing up today?

Shoot a call to Best Buy's customer service @ 1 (800) 433-5778 and ask to get to their digital downloads department - they can assist you with that as this was purchased at Best Buy.

I believe you need to register your product online.  The promotion is valid for products purchased on or after Janaury 31st

 

Instructions:

  • Purchase any graphics card from the qualifying list above on or after January 31, 2017 from EVGA.com
  • Register your EVGA Graphics Card with us at EVGA.com
  • Request your code from the form while logged into your EVGA.com account
  • Once approved your code will show on this promotion page under the "Collect Your Code" section
  • Go to http://www.geforce.com/redeem-instructions to claim your game code.
  • Follow the instructions to claim your redemption code
  • Offer available for a limited time or while supplies last

If the bundle is not showing after successfully registering your EVGA product to your EVGA account, then it is possible that you did not purchase your product from the EVGA online store.

Hi Bush082086,

 

I have received a reply. While we do anticipate running a promo to coincide with the NVidia graphics card offer soon, we are not participating at this time. I would encourage you to watch BestBuy.com and your preferred computer or graphics card to see if it will be eligible in the near future. 

 

Sincerely,

Mike|Senior Social Media Specialist | Best Buy® Corporate

Why did you remove my post? I was not in violation of any rules. If you would like me to I can be but I prefer to be civil. Everything I stated was true. It's called accountability.
