Just a heads up for 3k series owners.

https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/campaigns/rtx-bundle/

For a limited time, get a PC digital download of Watch Dogs: Legion to experience second generation ray tracing cinematic-quality visuals, and performance enhancing AI-powered DLSS. Also included is a 1-year GeForce NOW Founders membership. Experience legendary GeForce gaming anywhere, streaming your library of PC games across all your devices from the cloud.

The store I purchased from Canada Computers gave me an option of either Watch Dogs Legion OR Geforce NOW. The nvidia website says both should be included but the retailer site denied me the ability to select both. Not sure if the other e-tailers and retailers have been trying to pull this crap as well.

I got my Legion and GeForce NOW codes from Amazon the day after my card arrived.

Well, if I were to return a card, I'd obviously also surrender the codes and uninstall. Why would they do something so shady?!

They can't do that because they are one time use codes. I'm pretty sure even if you didn't redeem them they'd still ding you.

I'm not even sure if my Best Buy Canada order will come with codes. I'll have to ask customer service if it isn't in the shipping box.

They are usually regionalized offers. I would think you'd still fall in the NA region, but you never know.

The "bundle" is not included inside the card box. The promo code is provided by the retailer of the product. If you get from evga.com, you can get the "codes" from evga after registering the card or from a retailer/e-tailer via e-mail after the fact or printed on your invoice. The "bundle" is a separate product code voucher supplied with each product procured by the retailer/reseller.

It was advertised on the general 3080 landing page, but they didn't add the bundle items to cart like Newegg does.

Ya that's why I said inside 'shipping box' instead of retail box as I thought Best Buy might slip them in during shipping, but I doubt it.

I confirmed on the retailer site it also says Watchdogs AND Geforce Now bundle. Not sure what they are trying to pull here, but if your site says its a bundle, nvidia.com says so and so does every retailer/manufacturer, then you shouldn't be keeping the promo codes.
