I went to two Best Buys today looking for the physical card. First one they had already been returned. The employee (same guy who helped me with the digital) said they are waiting for a replacement card, but he didn't know when it was expected. Second store had them on the shelf and it was the Flashfire. The in game mail title was different than for their earlier promotion.

I just got back from my local Best Buy and they did have physical Cartel Coin cards. They're the same 2,400 coin cards and they say they come with an exclusive pet but they don't say which one. I got home, entered the code, and logged in expecting to see the Crested Orokeet in my mail. However, to my surprise I got the Model Flashfire. So the question remains, where is the Crested Orokeet going to come from? I know Amazon is changing their pet on the 12th of this month, maybe there (but why did someone supposedly already get it from Best Buy)?

Also, before you go running off to Best Buy. All the cards at my local store were "recalled" and, technically, they were not supposed to sell them (a big red alert came up on the register when they rang them up). I convinced them to sell me one anyway since it was my $20 that would have been wasted if it didn't work. So, don't be surprised if your store refuses to sell them.

I'll have to try for the Crested Orokeet soon. Interestingly Amazon just sent me the Blackbolt, and it's been quite a while since I bought a CC. Was that a lucky bug? Not that I'm complaiing about getting a second pet from them

Can I ask anyone that's gotten the Orokeet....what image was on the card? Was it a female BH with red hair? Or something else? The Fashfire was on one with the female BH....was just curious if the Orokeet has a different character on the cover. Might be easier to find that way, so if I see it in the store I know which one to get.

Previously, some people were wondering because the "Model S-12 Blackbolt" looked like the Sting starship and not like the Blackbolt.
And now, when I logged in to PTR today, I discovered that they renamed the pet to "Model S-13 Sting" everywhere - in the item name/description, in the mail, in the abilitiy name/description, in the NPC name and even in the Collections interface. So it looks like there was a mix-up and you're supposed to get the Model S-13 Sting pet. Amazon.com still advertises the Model S-12 Blackbolt though.
I so wish that we would get an official response and don't need to figure this out on our own...

Ugh... Looks like I'll have to go to Best Buy AGAIN and get the new card. I already have the Crested Orokeet, Now I need the Flashfire. Maybe the CS people can just add the flashfire to my account... But, I doubt it.

Maybe Eric can chime in on this?

Same. Darnit! I was hoping it would have a different character on it so I could tell them apart....
