FFXIV Summer DLC promotion is live!

Recommended Posts

The items that were released in Japan are now available in the US! (Sorry EU, you'll get yours later, apparently.)

 

To get them, you have to purchase an item of $19.99 or more off of the video game section on Amazon, and only games that are sold AND shipped by Amazon. The trick is, it only applies to specific games, so you have to make sure to read the fine print when you're poring over your purchases. (For example, Chrono Trigger DS and Kirby: Planet Robobot have the promotion, while Heavensward PC physical copy are participants, but games like Final Fantasy 3 and the digital version of heavensward are NOT. Read the special offers and promotion section, folks!)

 

After your purchase (It -will- show the DLC option as a promotion on the checkout screen as well if it's applicable.), you will be sent the code to enter within a day or two of your purchase. At that point, you have to enter the code, and then all six of the items will be given to every character on your account!

 

Sorry if this is a repost or slow or late, guys! I just got mine lined up and I'd hate for people to miss out. The promotion runs June 14-27, so there's time, but not much!

Is there a link explaining all of this? I'd like to read it.

EDIT: I was able to find the info. http://www.ffxivredeem.com/index.php

Also this thread is useful: https://www.amazon.com/forum/video%20games/ref=cm_cd_ecf_tft_tp?_encoding=UTF8&cdForum=Fx1T1DM93QU4XL1&cdThread=Tx3JAE54M516TS1

If you are from Canada like me, you MUST ORDER FROM AMAZON.COM.

Amazon.ca will not have the promotion.

 

You need to look for the promotion on the page of the item you are ordering. It'll say near the bottom of the page. But, not only will you have to look for that, you SHOULD look for whether or not they will ship to your location in Canada. If you check the international shipping box you may end up spending a lot more than you intended to.

 

edit tho: Final Fantasy Explorers didn't have the promotion on it either. It's over $20.. I found Amazon on the seller's list.. ???? ???? It's not expensive like Bravely Second so I guess it doesn't count. lol. Oh well I wanted Bravely Second anyways.

 

Here is a page for an example: (lol of course this one has the promotion. Some 3ds games do NOT have the promotion, the older, cheaper ones.. of course. The $20 ones ;o)

You will see that it says:

  • Spend $19.99 or more in the Amazon Video Games Category to receive six exclusive in-game items for "Final Fantasy XIV." You will receive your code by email within 2 business days. Here's how (restrictions apply)

Also; for folks-

 

I copied the link that I had where I clicked 19.99-20.00 Range that has Amazon as it's physical seller. So here's a link of stuff folks can buy. Just double check the promotion section as some things have been randomly thrown in for some reason.

It looks like pre-orders have the promotion, they list it like other eligible games do. Is anyone willing to test it out? ;)

So the answer is Yes, pre-orders will work if they have the entry. Good to know!

I hope they will, for now they do. It seems a lot of players in that thread alone plan to preorder and then cancel just for the code. Who knows what's going to happen with that. :dazed:

Because I don't actually want anything right now... $20 Nintendo eShop Gift Card for 3ds and WiiU. Physical card that is eligible. I'll go download some old games or something.

There have been some rumblings that pre-orders do in fact work if the XIV promotion is displayed on the store page. 

 

Some people are getting their codes now by talking to customer service and simply asking. Your mileage may vary.

They're also supposed to get it in 2 business days if they don't go through CS

 

Edit: Can confirm, pre-ordered Pokemon Sun <5 minutes ago and received the codes just now.

Hopefully my code will show up soon. Ordered my game as soon as the promotion was live. Ah well~

I put in my order, but who knows how long it'll take the code to come through. And it said on the order page that it was eligible for the DLC promotion so I know it will be coming. Man, this waiting thing is hard! lol

Pre ordered KOF XIV which was eligible, but didn't get my code and didn't contact customer service, I bought Bravely Second which I wanted anyways, and got the code a minute later

I got the order confirmation at the same time as the promotion email.

 

It's titled Benefit Confirmation for your Order #######

It's okay, I still haven't gotten mine. And I tried to contact CS, and got told "It's automated, we can't really do anything until after the 2 day window is up, sorry." Oof.

I got mine within 30 minutes, so I'm not sure why some things have a delay.

 

I purchased a physical copy of doom. If you really want it fast, purchase a physical game disk I guess?

I did, alas. Ordered a physical copy of Kirby: Planet Robobot for the 3ds. Had the promotion, was in the checkout. Nothin so far, though.

I haven't received a code for the Nintendo card that I purchased this morning. HOWEVER. A FC mate that purchased the same thing a few hours later got his code instantly. I talked to CS and they told me that my item was indeed eligible and that I would receive the code within two business days. For funsies I went and pre-ordered XV (we wanted it anyway) about an hours ago and instantly got a code.

 

I think anyone that ordered first thing in the morning might have run into some issues? Maybe the automated system wasn't fully set up at that point.

I ordered an Atlus game for 3DS that looks like a glorious trainwreck and I'm still waiting for my code, too. Thanks for letting us know what CS says if you message them about it!
