So, I'm trying to register my Black Ops 2 promo code, but gamestopblackops2 dot com is telling me that my code is invalid. I'm assuming it's probably temorary, and will accept the code within the next few days. Literally just pre ordered about an hour ago, and got the code on my receipt, with super excited words "Don't miss out - register now!" Wondering if this has happened to anyone else?

On the bright side, the poster is pretty decent.

I preordered my copy from GAMESTOP (19662 NW 27 Ave , miami gardens, fl 33056). I went home within 15 minutes to register for the monthly bonus. I got an error message "Promo Code Invalid". I am extremely pissed and needless to say i got no help from the gamestop clerks. They told me to wait ten minutes and try again. Sounds ridiculous, it didn't work. Gamestop needs to address this issue asap and stop screwing its loyal customers over.

The code worked for me now. A couple days later. Problem now is that the redirect page where you actually get the token won't load.
This is beyond ridiculous. Not even sure if I'm mad.. or just really dissapoint.

I find it odd that it's all new accounts posting this. That web address seems very fishy.

A Scam? Are you retarded? You must be one of those people who were posting on the OFFICIAL Black OPS 2 facebook fanpage saying CODBO2 was a scam as well. The RECEIPT, ya know, where I bought the game at gamestop, SAYS to visit this specific site you retard So, yea, I doubt its a scam. Pull your finger outta your butt. On a side note, I called Gamestop where I bought it, and the clerk said that in a few months you can use the code AND that you can use the MW3 prestige token now. HOWEVER! The bonus offers are "as supplies last" and the token can only be used til June 30th. ALSO! The token cannot be registered for, UNTIL you register with the site. So these idiots, like the idiot above me, make no sense. Hey bro? You sure you don't work for gamestop? Blubbering idiots.AlpbaBeta7

Ok decided to read as i couldnt resist......you just sound as bad as the other advertiser "MUST REGISTER BEFORE 30th JUNE" "WHILE SUPPLIES LAST". Try harder mr advertiser, and hold of with the insults and hostility or i may cry:cry:

***** ATTENTION ******* PLEASE READ IF YOU GOT THE PRE-ORDER AND YOUR PROMO CODE IS NOT WORKING!!!! Sorry for the caps. Anyway, if your promo code is not working and GS has not helped you or gave you a BS answer like they gave me - please try to look for any Os or ZEROES on your code. If it looks like an O and you entered an O and its not working - enter a ZERO instead. If it looks like a ZERO and you entered a ZERO and its not working - enter an O. I know that seems obvious to some people (bravo to you). But to millions of others posting on various blogs, forums and websites that do NOT know what is going on - that is your answer. It worked for me as well, so that is why I am putting it out there. GS has no idea what they are doing. MOST receipts at MOST stores, will LET YOU KNOW what is a zero and what is an O by two ways: Either definitively making the 0 or the O skinnier or wider OR they add the slash on the zero. Apparently GS does not do this. Hope everyone sees this that is having problems and I hope it works for you. If it does not work for you, well, that's outta my hands lol.

I know this is an XBOX 360 thread, but I was having the same issue with PS3. I talked with a chat representative and they put in a service call for me to get the token. Apparently this is a widespread issue and they have a missing Prestige token database. Once they get you in, ranges from a couple of days to a couple of weeks. http://support.activision.com/pkb_Home?clickedOn=MW3 Then click on Get Live Support link. Process took me about 5 minutes for them to get the info and send me a RMA #... Hope this helps.

Hopefully this will help someone. I had been trying since early last month to register, but my code kept coming up invalid as well. I FINALLY broke down tonight and called my Gamestop. The guy there gave me a new code, then told me if it didn't work, to contact support. My new code didn't work. I called Activision's support line thinking they would know how to help me. The guy on the phone was amazingly helpful. He explained that I should've called Gamestop's support number because it's their promo,not Activision; HOWEVER... he told me that if I cleared my history, a lot of the times it would help when having issues with codes and such. He suggested that I give it another shot after I cleared my history, then gave me Gamestop's support number, just in case. Low and behold, my new promo code worked!!!YAY!!! Please give this a shot. Oh. He also said that when it comes to promo codes, there are no o's(oh's), there's only 0's(zero's). Here's Gamestop's main number just in case this doesn't work for you: (817)424-2000.
