Did you get Starfield when you purchased an AMD graphics card, but your code is still missing, or you’re not sure how to activate the gift code? Don’t worry, Guided is here to help you activate your Starfield copy!
What’s it all about? Many eager fans have already received a premium ticket to the stars through their AMD hardware purchase. In this article, we’ll help you activate your Starfield code that comes with your AMD product. If you haven’t received an activation key with your AMD GPU or CPU yet, don’t worry – we’ll explain why!
Getting Starfield with an AMD Graphics Card or Processor – How to Activate the Code
If you’ve recently purchased an AMD graphics card or processor, the process to secure your copy of Starfield is relatively straightforward. Here’s a step-by-step guide:
Step 1: Check Your Eligibility
Before you start the activation process, it’s crucial to verify your eligibility for this offer. Make sure you’ve purchased a qualifying AMD graphics card or processor (via amd.com).
Step 2: The Activation Email
When the email arrives, it will be from your retailer, in our example from Amazon; the email will have the subject: “Here’s your promotional credit from your recent Amazon order.” This email contains the Starfield redemption code and a link to amdrewards.com, where you can redeem your Starfield copy.
Step 3: Redeem the Code
Go to amdrewards.com and either sign in to your existing AMD Rewards account or create a new one if you don’t have one already. Once you’re logged in, you can copy and paste the Starfield code into the provided field.
Step 4: Download the Validation Tool
After pasting the code, a pop-up window will appear, giving you further instructions. AMD requires you to download the validation tool to your computer. The purpose of this tool is to scan your computer and ensure that you actually have the qualifying AMD hardware. You’ll need to enter the code again when prompted by the tool.
Note! On platforms like eBay, some people sell gift codes for their Amazon products. Under no circumstances should you buy one of these activation keys! Without the corresponding hardware, you won’t be granted access to the game. Unfortunately, we’ve already had experiences with this.
Step 5: Claim Starfield as Your Reward
Once the tool successfully validates your hardware, follow the on-screen prompts to claim your reward. You’ll need to select the title “Starfield” and accept it. Expect to go through a few buttons and screens before completing the process.
Step 6: Successful Activation of Starfield as an AMD Bonus
Upon completing the steps, you should reach a screen confirming that you’ve successfully activated your Starfield game.
When Will I Receive Starfield After Activation?
If you’ve correctly redeemed your Starfield code with AMD, you’ll receive the key, but not immediately. The page will inform you that you’ll be notified in the future when the keys are ready for distribution. This is likely to be around the following times:
- Starfield Premium Key: August 31 to September 1
- Starfield Standard Key: September 6
Starfield with AMD Product – Haven’t Received a Key Yet? Here’s What You Can Do
In some cases, you may receive your AMD product, but the Starfield activation key is not included or sent immediately. Don’t worry, this situation is not uncommon. Typically, it’s a matter of the retailer waiting for confirmation from suppliers before sending out the corresponding email. Here’s what you should do:
Wait for the Email
If you received the Starfield code directly with your GPU or CPU, be patient. Activation keys are often delivered separately via email. Often, these emails arrive a few days after your GPU has been delivered. Be sure to regularly check your email inbox, including spam and promotional folders, as the key should arrive in an email notification from Amazon.
If you’ve been waiting for more than 72 hours for your AMD card or processor bonus, contact your retailer’s support. In most cases, they respond within a few hours.
