Default 7950 newegg games deal

If I order a sapphire 7950 from newegg, do the games codes get emailed to me after purchase , or do they come in the shipping box?

And where is newegg, I can't remember, I think the last time 2x I bought from them it had to get shipped from California to Ontario to Newfoundland, takes FOREVER

Newegg is in several states, depending on what you are ordering and where you are located depends on where the fulfillment center for your item is located. As for the game codes, it comes on a card where you go register on a website and input your code and you get the game codes and downloads in an email. And that's true for every place, new egg isn't the place you get the deal, it's an AMD thing not a Newegg thing.

I ordered my new sapphire Hd 7950 Vapor X from newegg.ca and the codes are in your shipping box. Had the card in 3 days. Love my 3 free games.

Even the HD-7970 can be found for $389 which is a good deal.The HIS HD-7970 you can get for $369 with a $30 rebate and it comes with four games,a $170 value FarCry-3 ,HitMan , SleepingDogs and the lader two has not even been released yet.But $200 for a HD-7970 is'nt bad at all.Plus a Gigabyte HD-7950 for $299 and $170 worth of pretty good games makes that just a $130 card which is a great deal.

Well, Hitman releases on Nov 20, but you get a keycode for it now, when I went to apply it it added it to my cart as a future download.
Farcry 3 releases Dec 4 and is the same deal.

As for the others, Sleeping Dogs was an immediate download on Steam. The MOH code is a coupon that will be emailed to you and you just order it in Origin with the code to get the 20% off.

See I can get my 1st 7950 next week, but money is super tight so I would get 1 from directcanada for cheaper, but without the games

I will get another 7950 in January when I will have extra money for a more expensive 1 from newegg/ncix with the games......but will the games deal still be available, that's what I wish I knew

Well, what I read from AMD is that vendors will be running the special as long as supplies last. Typically, with things like this, a vendor will purchase x amount of a special to suit what they think will help them sell what ever amount of product they think the special will help them move. So when they say while supplies last, it's while that vendor carries that special.
