Well now I am really angry because of this false advertisement.

 

I bought yesterday R9 270x and expected to get the BF4 code. Now, when I asked today promo code for BF4, retailer answered that only special editions will get bundled promo code, and they will get those special edition cards in one week.

 

This is really unfair and not appropriate for one company like AMD.

Has nothing to do with AMD. If you don't like what the retailer is doing, take the card back, and buy it from a retailer who is doing the promo *now* not in one week.

Seeing as how they just announced it yesterday makes perfect sense the retailer won't have promo codes to give away. Also keep in mind AMD has enough legal information in the never settle bundle to make sure they are not at fault. 

So its not really a false advertisement. AMD is sending the codes to retailers and those retailers will be handing them out soon. I doubt AMD would Overnight codes to retailers everywhere. The expense would be rediculous.

This specific promotion of R9 Series products and Battlefield4 is operating slightly differently. 

The coupon-codes for the game are coming inside the product's box.  That means the AIBs (Sapphire, XFX, MSI, etc..) have the codes to begin with.  Not every single version of R9 Series product from every single AIB will have a coupon-code.  Not every single retailer will carry those products that have the codes.  Products with the coupon-codes are shipping now, and it is my understanding that we are coordinating with the retailers so they will know (and be able to sell/promote) the products that do come with the coupon-code.

sounds like a promo lottery - maybe there is a code in the box or not?

LoL, keep it!

Well I know how you feel. I just bought a Sapphire 290X believing that all R9 cards came with BF4. Unless they give a code I'll send it back for a refund and hold out untill the BF4 mess is sorted.
