Literally 3 posts above yours is an official post from two days ago saying that Target does not yet have the cards in stock.

I got the artic Lynx from Best Buy. You get your printed receipt from their in store kiosk (its located in the games section). You have to search for cartel coins, click on the button and then take the receipt to the cash register. For those who have gotten theirs from Gamestop, how did you get it? Did you have to go to the cash register and ask? Will they even know what you are talking about? I asked the guy at Best Buy and he didn't:

I can verify from personal experience that NOT ALL Best Buy stores have the same software/databases on their pre-order kiosks. Of the 3 Best Buys local to my area, exactly 2 of them had the cartel items. The third, and oddly enough, the most heavily trafficked of the 3 Best Buys did NOT have the cartel items on their pre-order kiosks.

At GameStop you have to ask them to search for some combination of "TOR" "2400" and "Cartel"
They are not listed by "The Old Republic" in their system and that will only return a 60 day time card.

At Best Buy they can look them up for you as well, but they MUST look them up as a pre-order or they will not find them in their system.

What is all this stuff???? Are the pets free if you ask odd questions at store? Do I have to buy something? Am I just buying the pet? Is the pet a bonus for getting off my butt and driving to the store to purchase something I can easily do at home? What is the point of all this?

Basically, yes. The pets are included to introduce foot traffic into stores. Yes, you can buy 2,400 cartel coins online directly from the store but, if you come into our store (Best Buy, Wal-Mart, etc) and buy those 2,400 cartel coins, you'll also get a free pet with them.

Sounds good, and it's a very reasonable ammount to have to purchase. Also, lets me stop for sushi since ill be in the area. It's a win win

Bought 2 codes at GameStop in middletown ny without a hitch. Receipt had printed instructions but the process would have been easy without them.

Thanks for getting this right!

Which pet do the Game Stop and Best Buy codes come with? The Gilded Flutterplume?

As far as I know of, we have never had plans to put these into Toys R Us. We do have another vendor that we will be announcing 'soon'.
