Wow, that's an old promo you found there. That card isn't even sold anywhere but amazon, and without promoting the never settle promotion.

i would just return that card if you are within their return time. then buy from someone that isn't shady and makes you read the "fine print" to try and get over on people.

If you bought it from a proper retailer/reseller you should be entitled to the bundle, I would email them. I can't speak for other vendors but from where I got my cards they don't include it in the box. They way they did it was you email them with your invoice once you receive your cards It was they way they did it and they didn't do it any other way.

BTW if you buy 2 79xx cards you get 7 games instead of 6 tongue.gif the extra one is FC Blood Dragon

EDIT: I may also add that where I bought it from (PC Case Gear) isn't listed on AMD's site as a retailer so you should still get the bundle IMO

Actually only 4 retailers (US) give you the 7 games: Cyberpower PC, Falcon NW, Ibuypower, and Maingear. You have to click the AMD Corssfire Technology tab on the Never Settle Reloaded promo page.

I did contact them and they said this:
Quote:
The Never Settle bundle is a promotion from our online partners that you would have to purchase from them in order to receive the games provided with the 7970. These vendors include Amazon, Fry’s, TigerDirect, Newegg, and MicroCenter. Unfortunately, we do not have the codes for the games in our building as they have been sent out to our vendors. For more information regarding the promo for the 7970 free games, please click on the following link below:

http://www.diamondmm.com/diamond-multimedia-promo.html

If you follow that link, it doesn't explicitly say that those are the ONLY retailers supported, but merely suggesting places you can buy the card. I know the fine print says participating retailers only, but once again it doesn't explicitly say whats supported and what isn't.

Further more, I got this letter in the mail shortly before the package arrived, with an invoice from "Best Data". I don't know if that's part of diamond or not.


Either way, why the hell would you have a banner for the bundle on YOUR OWN WEBSTORE, AND NOT HAVE THE BUNDLE. Stupid.

Why would the promotion say "Purchase ANY 7970..." if thats not the case?

Anyway, does anyone know what I can do or who I can contact to possibly be able to get codes? I did by a $400 GPU afterall...

Dang, I just ordered the same card last night, order status showing complete. I thought it comes with games promo. Should I cancel it?
But I really needed that card for xfire with my other Diamond. Can't find anywhere selling it except Amazon which is very high price and tax for me.

PS, how soon they shipped your order out?

It was at my door in 5 days. They provide no tracking however. And I don't know man. I don't get why they would have a promo on their own web store then say you need to purchase somewhere else to get the codes thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

If this doesn't get resolved favorably, I will probably avoid both companies in the future. Seriously though AMD, why not just put the code INSIDE the retail box, so everyone gets a code no matter where they purchase from? that would make a lot more people happy, and make it simpler.
