I just signed up for a sub at the very end of Aug, I figured itd take a month to get the mag in the mail, have yet to receive one, but does this mean I have to wait another month? I didn't get my welcome coupons or whatever either yet figured theyd come with the first mag...


You clearly signed up too late to get the September issue, and I haven't seen any reports of people receiving the October issue yet, so you may still get October.

Welcome coupons are mailed separately, apparently in batches. It took 10 weeks to get mine, several weeks after the first magazine.

thanks for the info, I figured it takes forever to get the first mailed copy, just didn't know if this COD special mag is in replacement of October's mag and subscribers aren't getting a copy, since the posts I've gotten a chance to read state this copy isn't being given to regular subscribers.....now if I can just figure out who to contact to find out about my 10 dollars from that order 50 dollars online for pickup at store get 10 dollar best buy deal, havent gotten anything on that either, lol thanks again!

Edit: And I just saw the post for the October issue coupons so nevermind lol

On the flipside, after posted I decided to look through my extensive backlog ... and I found at least 2 EA games with past expiration dates for the online codes. One was March 31, 2012 for Dragon Age II and the other was 8/29/12 for SSX.

I entered them in last night and both were still valid, so YMMV.

I think the Mass Effect 2 Cerberus Network code is another one that 'expired' but is still valid. I haven't checked mine lately.

For those with their Gamer's Club Unlocked about to expire like mine, if you renew in store and they have the "special" Call Of Duty issue with the $15 off coupons for PS+/XBL on the counter, ask them to scan that issue with the renewal as it WILL ZERO OUT!!!!

Again, if your GCU is up for renewal soon(mine was set to expire in two days), then have them scan the $10 COD issue with the renewal and IT WILL ZERO OUT!!!

Does anyone know if you can renew early and do this? I wanted the $15 PS Plus coupon, but my renewal isn't until sometime in March.

I'm curious too. Mines up in December actually. How does this magazine zero out? And is the one at the counter relly any different than the ones we will be receiving?

Im also wondering if this cancels out any other promotions. Suposedly your supposed to get a $5 RZ cert for renewing, although the people at my store havent heard anything about that

Note that I tried to use the $15.00 off coupon for PSN subscription, and it did not work properly. It required an override for me.

You can find out here when your first issue will be, you should have gotten a welcome e-mail with your account number. I signed up near the end of august and my first issue is scheduled to be in october.

Im really confused about this magazine now. This is ONLY in store? Does that mean that subscribers will NOT be getting a magazine this month? or are there 2 seperate issues this month? Either way, that seems like bullshit if thats the case. Especially if subscribers get nothing this month

I also still dont understand how renewing your subscription will supposedly make this issue free. What the hell is going on?

It's like this. This month there are two magazines. One is standard for Gamers Club members. It is also what we will get in the mail. The other is the special Call of Duty edition which we will NOT get in the mail. If we want it, we have to pay $10 in store. But, there is a glitch. If you renew and buy the magazine, the price of the magazine will zero out, just like it would with the regular magazine. Savvy?

So if you renew a magazine subscription you get a free issue of the one in store? I thought that wasn't the case. I had remembered seeing people complain that when they signed up they didn't get a free issue at the time. If thats the case i kinda see how that works i guess. But i thought you didn't get a free issue with subscription/renewal. What should i ask the guy at the counter to do?


Not sure if its worth the hassle, but i am due for a subscription renewal. I would only use the PSN/Xbox codes possibly. My subscription is up in December i believe. Can you renew a few months early? The people at my store are idiots. All the people that worked in gaming and knew what they were doing are gone and its just some old people that dont know WTF theyre doing now. I recently had a guy tell me I wasn't @gamer unlocked o_O

Just to keep it simple, all you have to know is that if you renew, it supposedly gives you the magazine for free. You are supposed to get that months issue for free when you sign up, but people have had problems in the past with employees.

Ask the guy, when you renew, to scan the COD issue as well, because you read online it's free with a renewal. If it zeros out, then you get it, if not, you don't. I also agree it is BS that we don't get the COD issue. Enuf said to blame him for it.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

Major kudos to guys at bes buy 50th st northern blvd in New York. Walked for battlefield 3 And me3 with the voucher, I saw the cod special issue and asked to see it, I told him I didn't want the magazine because its ten bucks. But the employee noticed that I am a member and gave the magazine for free. Thanks. The gentleman's name was Jonathan.

This particular store had plenty of bf3, me3 but not lollipop or dark2.

Finally joined Unlocked today to get in on the $20 cert promo. The guy went to the back and brought out some special COD gamers club magazine. Got one with my Unlocked sub. Awesome!

Also just wanted to mention, when the guy scanned the COD mag with my sub order, it didn't zero out. He had to get the manager to override the price.

That is weird. That's at least two instances of the COD mag not zeroing out. But I know it zeroed out with my renewal earlier.

For the record, here's the order in which they scanned the items on my receipt:

Gamer's Club Unlocked pamphlet barcode
COD magazine
Reward Zone card

After those three it lists the 10 issue @Gamer subscription underneath the RZ info and that's zeroed out as well.

So if any of those three are MIA from your receipts, that may be why it didn't package out.

Also the rep had to go into the system and select between the physical or the digital/email version of the magazine sub somewhere within the transaction.

Well... it wasn't nearly as easy as claimed here. Granted my BB seems to be staffed with utter morons now that all the competent people have quit, but it took me an hour to priceadjust my copies of Lolipop chainsaw and renew my @gamer mag. They couldn't get the COD issue to ring up and were calling around and trying to figure it out forever, before the guy just said F it and pennied it out.

So just a warning, seems it doesn't ring up right and if you got idiots working at your store it will be a headache. Ungh, i need a physical @gamer unlocked card. Is there a way to get a physical copy of this? They always have to ask for my number

If you signed up last year, they sent you a barcode sticker to place on your Reward Zone card that I believe they're supposed to scan to show you're in the GCU.

It was in with your welcome packet, assuming you ever received one.;)

My guess is for the people that it didn't zero out for; they didn't let it go to the final step when they hit total

While the stickers do have the GCU logo on them, the barcode is the same as the one on your RZ card, so scanning your RZ card should have the same effect. The "welcome packet" even says: "One member number for all. Don't forget that your Reward Zone Gamers Club Unlocked membership number is the same as your Reward Zone membership number."
