Pre order bonus question

Ok so I preordered with tesco last November for 25 and have just got off the phone with them about when it would be dispatched and delivered. Turns out they're dispatching on the 16th with 1st class Royal Mail for delivery the next day (highly doubt they'll manage that) anyway they said the preorder bonus will be coming with the game itself rather than by email.

So instead of waiting for the game to turn up late I was thinking of going to my local tesco at midnight and picking up a copy then returning the preordered copy to the store (unopened obviously) but will the blimp code come on a card outside the box or will all day one editions of the game have the code in?

I remember with red dead I got a seperate card but that may of been due to there being different bonus' for the different stores. Anyway what do you guys reckon, code in the box or in the parcel? Seems strange them not emailing it :/

I think most pre order codes come from the receipt now and not in the actual case of the game. Though some still do. When you get the game at the store just check to see if the code is on the receipt. If its not, then its obviously in the box. Don't think you would get the pre order code this quickly from email anyways. R* likes everything being released on the date its supposed to be.

well thats good news. i wasnt expecting there to be a pre order bonus from tesco. you got it for a great price too!

with shopto if its sent 1st class before 5.30pm it WILL come the next day (100% chance, at least with my purchases) but im not sure about tesco, it can also depend on where the warehouse is located.

and yeah, them emailing codes seems to be becoming a new thing. it happened with payday 2 lootbag DLC.

Maybe they will email it, wouldn't be the first time customer support didn't have a clue! I've never preordered from tesco before, everywhere else emails the codes nowadays I think but at 25 I had to go with tesco haha!

There's a video going around of a guy opening an early copy and it showed the blimp pre-order on a card inside the case.

not likely.

by the looks of it the codes are sent via email. but if you buy it from store it wont come in the box.

thats what i think anyway

No, I've seen video of the Blimp code being on a card inside the game case.

Just opened my copy and the blimp code was in there! Seems like it's more of a day one thing than a pre-order only.
