No response from anyone yet. It’s just frustrating that everything that has to do with Halo Infinite or its associated promotions is such a problem or big secret. There’s no clear information on how to obtain anything, or what anything unlocks, unless it is specifically stated somewhere in the fine print. Someone somewhere is consistently dropping the ball with this stuff and it sucks. More negative stuff piled onto already negative stuff. Not a good look.There's no mention of this promotion anywhere on GameStop's website which makes no sense to me. I'm in quite a dilemma. On one end, I despise GameStop with a burning passion as they've failed me many times, one example being that I pre-ordered Halo 5: Guardians a month before its release and received the game 3 days after it launched, defeating the purpose of a pre-order. However, on the other end, Red Shift is the only coating I'd ever use as it has my favorite colors on it while also being an exclusive (at least I imagine it is and not what happened with Halo 5: Guardians' pre-order bonuses being unlockable in the game) coating. It seems like the best pre-order bonuses come from GameStop which always has me coming back to them no matter what I do to prevent myself from shopping there.
Since this promotion lasts until December, I would suggest holding off on buying anything Halo-related from GameStop until they finally mention how these Red Shift codes work. I was tempted to purchase something off their website to see if the code will be sent to my email but I don't want to risk not receiving anything as it's clear people purchasing Halo-related stuff in-person don't receive a code on their receipt, which I'd imagine is the same case for online purchases.
Unyshek responded to my post on Twitter with some information. I’ve copied and pasted the entire exchange below. Waiting on another response.
None of my local @GameStop stores know anything about this @Halo promotion going on. Was it delayed? @GameStopHelp @gamestopcorp @Halosupport
Adding @Unyshek since he wrote about it in the last community update.
Can I get any assistance with this? @Halo @HaloSupport @Unyshek @GameStop @GameStopHelp @gamestopcorp
Hey Mario! I checked with our team and the promotion is still on. Could you check with your local store(s) again?
Thank you for the response. You mentioned in the last community update that you would talk more about this promotion in the following one. Is that still going to happen? Can you clarify what items need to be purchased in order for a redeemable code to be generated?
I called my 4 local GameStops here in NJ again today and they still have not heard anything about it. It’s really frustrating.
There is a post on the Halo Infinite forum on Waypoint regarding this, that is what prompted me to post here.
