Having a red shift code can be frustrating at times. We all have different ways of recognizing and entering new codes, especially if you are using a smartphone or tablet. There are many apps that help you continue to redeem your shift codes, making it easy!
It is important that you continue to use the same app that is installed on your device to continue redeeming your shift codes. All of the apps listed here have features that make it easy to enter your shift code.
This article will go into more detail about these features and how to continue entering your redshift code.
Launch a shift-enabled title first
If you have yet to launch a title that supports shift code input, then you should do so first. Title launch is powered by Shift Code Input, so if you have not done this yet, please do!
Title launch requires Shift Code Input, so if you do not have one yet, you can still redeem your rewards. Just make sure to input your code before placing your order!
Once you have launched your title and placed an order, then you can continue to redeem rewards as normal. If you did not already take the time to purchase a shift code first, doing so will keep your rewards in-game until people manually enter the codes into their accounts.
How to get launch codes
Should you decide to continue to redeem shift codes after the launch, you will need to purchase launch codes from us. They can be found in stores such as Best Buy or Amazon.
Launch codes are only redeemable on a specific title that has launch code included. So, if you wanted to continue to redeem them on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, you would have to purchase the code separately.
However, we do offer a free extended support plan should you have any issues with your copy of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, so it is not necessary to spend money if you do not want to.
We suggest using this rule-out mentality before attempting to redeem shift codes due to potential issues with duplicate copies and receipt fraud.
Go to the Blizzard Shop
Now that you have your new Shift-Enabled title, you can redeem your shift code by going to the Blizzard Shop at www.play.blizzard.com. You can do this offline, just go to the shop by entering your account details in the basket and clicking on ‘Shop’!
If you want to continue using your old title until it is replaced, then purchase the Expansion Pass or buy the game on Steam. Both of these services are available to download from within the shop!
It is very important that you start using your new Shift-Enabled title as soon as you receive it as a gift as you will be forced to start taking advantage of it by sending it to yourself so you can begin using it.
Click on Games > Battle.net Gift Card
Once you have your gift card, you can continue to redeem Shift Codes by clicking on Games in the upper right corner of Battle.net!
Redeeming your Gift Card is free, but you will need to purchase an item or two to use it. It is then your choice of how you want to spend it.
You can purchase items in the Battle.net Shop, through PayPal, or even donate it! Maybe you want to start a new game as soon as as possible. You can continue trying Shift Codes until the gift card is full!
Remember: The more expensive items are, the more Shift Code you will be able to redeem.
Select an amount and click “Add To Cart”
Once you have your new Shift code, it is time to start redeeming it. You can now go to any title to begin the redemption process.
To continue to redeem Shift codes, you must visit your account page, select “My Rewards” and then “Continue to Redeem Shift Codes”. This must be done within minutes of receiving your code as it will take up to 30 days for it to show up on your account.
Under “Cart Options” click “Show Coupon” and paste your code here
This may seem odd at first, but it prevents you from being able to redeem your shift code if you do not have a title that includes the code. This is because Shift codes require a new account to sign in to them in order to work. If you had an old account that logged in, then this would not apply!
By having the coupon on the new account’s account, it continues to work and gives you the discount on your purchase. It also makes it more difficult for someone to try and use a reset code or shift code on another account as it will be difficult for them to do so since they will need to input the same coupon again.
Continue to redeem shift codes!
Some members may have stopped receiving shift code redemptions due to our continued efforts to secure the codes. As you may know, shift codes can sometimes be hard to continue redeeming as we are going to put them back into the system!
Since January 2017, over 800 000 shift codes have been stored in our system. We are very confident you will be able to continue redeeming your shift codes, though!
We are continuing our efforts through social media and email notifications as well as having a widget on this website and on ShiftK polo app. If you do not receive notifications, try adding a mobile phone or tabletphone to your account so we can reach them.
What if I missed the window?
If you do not have access to a redemption window, you can continue to redeem Shift codes by following these steps:
Launch your chosen title of choice and continue to enjoy the service as usual!
Once the reset period has ended, you can start trying to redeem your code. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. It is still possible to continue to redeem your code by following these tips.
Please remember that only one code per title can be redeemed during the window of opportunity, so if you had already used up your first code, you must choose a new one to start with!
Continuing to use your code will also ensure that you keep your rewards on track, as we collect any remaining codes through our system. This also helps us keep the offer available for others who did not receive their code.
