Once you use a Key it saves. I don't recommend dashboarding. It can kill your save.

If you have the Premium Pass you can get infinite keys.

Log on to your main account (The one with the Premium Pass so it loads), And create a game.

If you load up a Second Profile on Controller 2 but REFUSE to select a Storage Device, you can use them to open a chest an infinite amount of times.

Just sign out and then sign back in and repeat.

However, unless you power level the character to a higher level, He will remain Level 1 and Open Level 7 chests. Which is fine if your a low level character.

Updates/Observations on the Golden Keys

So, a buddy of mine have tried the following techniques with the golden key chest:

1) Open chest and then dashboard
RESULT: Game saved as soon as chest was opened. Lost golden key but I was able to grab the
shields for my buddy and drop them for him.

2) Open chest and power off Xbox
RESULT: Even though I was the host, when my buddy shut off his Xbox my game was saved and
was returned to main menu. My buddy lost his golden key and the grenade mod, as I
wasn't able to pick it up.

3) Tried infinite golden key glitch
RESULT: Weren't able to open it more than once.

Also: I signed up for SHIFT and received an email confirmation. I DID NOT receive a code to enter in Borderlands 2. HOWEVER, I did receive my golden key for signing up. Which was great, because I am one of the many poor souls who wasted my golden key before I realized what I was doing

So I go strolling into Sanctuary and I'm opening everything I see, as always. I accidentally opened the golden chest (I wanted to wait)... Oh well, at least I've got 2 more. Got a pretty sweet Fire Sniper and SMG... I have 2 characters near same level (9) so I store em at Claptrap's stash and share the weapons....

My guess is the codes will be for future promotions or something...

So I have 2 golden keys, one from the pre-order bonus & one from signing up to shift, but I cant see them in my inventory. When I last loaded up my game it says I have 2 keys but I just don't know where they are! Could someone tell me how I view them?

If I 100% Borderlands 1 after I've started Borderlands 2, will that give me a golden key? Or do I have to have gotten 100% before starting Borderlands 2?

Also, as plinny1984 asked, where are the golden keys displayed? Because I received a message that I had one, but it's not in my inventory. Help please?

The same for me. I completed the game and earned all the achievements. I did not complete my second playthrough though, so maybe that is the problem.

Perhaps it is because we did not complete the second playthrough?

Go to your menu and to your Bad-Ass Rank page. The number of keys are listed at the bottom right.

I still have not seen any confirmation, ie, a source stating that you get a key for completing Borderlands. I have completed one playthrough and earned all achievments, but have not received a third Key. In addition I play with a friend of mine and he has 3 keys, but he never completed a single playthrough, nor did he earn all the achievments.

I've beaten Borderlands several times with all achievements, including DLC. Maybe I didn't do all of the side quests in the New Game + playthrough. I got 2 keys, shift and pre-order

Be committed!!

I accidentally opened the gold chest very early in the game and decided that instead of saving or continuing on that i would just shut off my xbox and restart...what happened that i wasnt prepared for was when i started up my last save the chest was closed again like i had planned but the golden key had been used anyway so My tip to you is if you open it deal with it.

Wanna say thanks to azGRIMES for posting that video, it lets me know what to expect. I mostly play a snipper expert but there were plenty of times in the first game where a rocket launcher was handy. Also its good to have two keys, using one around level twenty and the other at end-game.

I accidentally opened it at like level 6 LOL. Got a shield with 300 capacity and some shitty gun with like 40 damage

Well, it's not going to ruin this game for me, I plan on doing one playthrough per character anyways. I also like using shitty guns at all levels, it makes the game more competitive and difficult. Best weapon I have right now is a Sniper with 98 damage lol.

I registered my email and password on the site. When I go to extras in game I have no way to enter my email. It just says authenticating. I also couldn't link my account to my 360 on the site...what gives? Ok, I reloaded the game and then was able to link it.

Figured out a gold key glitch that works. just did it 20 times no issue.
Video with clear instruction coming sometime today or tomorrow the latest.

P.s so far no class mods but plenty guns, nade, shields in magenta and purple. If you have a purple gunzerker class mod purple under level 33 that would be cool. After the video and instructions are up.

I pre-ordered and after entering the Premiere Club code, all gamertags (wife and son) on my console received the Golden Key other than mine (account owner). Had to join Shift for me to get one.

Any recommendations as to what level to use these keys at. I have three (one for pre-order, one for shift, and I haven't a clue how I got the third) and I really wanna try one out, but I also don't wanna waste them. I'm only level 11 as I've not had much time to play because of work, so I don't wanna use it too early, but at the same time, my schedule is forcing me to solo this at the moment so the extra help with some good weapons would be nice as all the loot I'm getting is garbage for the most part (still using the Gold pre-order weapons as there the best stuff I have).

I wouldn't do any glitches to get more keys because the other day on a chat with fans on kotaku, randy pitchford said that their will be penalties against those who exploited the system. he said its possible that gearbox will strip weapons, remaining keys and other stuff from people who exploited it.
