I have just discovered there is a third day of free premium time.

Penny arcade day....yep.

Valentines day .....yep.

And on the download page, where you go when you click "download now", there is another free day. Bottom left button.

Click "redeem" at the top of the page to view all you have redeemed. (Good feature)

Thanks or the free day PGI/IGP. :)

Edit: I forgot this....[color="#b27204"]Click here[/color] to see your promo code redemption history

You may have collected it.

There is no longer an option for me. I did click it though, but it has vanished.

You could click the "redeem" button at the top, you will get a list of what promotions you have redeemed.

Is it for new players who download the game? That would explain why you got it on a re-install.

Interesting.. I`ve never redeemed a single day of Premium time via "promotions", only purchased through MC, and still have no button on teh DL page, nix , nada.....

So essentially (assuming the OP is factually true) I`ve "missed out" on 3 free premium days already, with no apparent rhyme or reason as to why I seem to have been "excluded".... Sounds fishy to me...

To be quite honest. The Valentines free day and the Penny arcade free day were posted very openly on these forums... and I think the Valentines free day from PGI was even advertized in the launcher. If you missed them, then it was not the fault of the people who were offering the days.

Like I just did? Completely reinstalled from scratch. Why? Completely different computer. Got zero free premium time. Want proof? See my complaint on the feedback section of the website on how SLOW your servers are providing the 50mb installer file and the client. Now that is a joke... for a company wanting to get their product onto as many hard drives as possible.

... Pictures explaining how to use the Internet...

I know exactly what "redeem" means, and how to find my redemption history, and even if I were simply clicking the link in teh OP would have solved that for even the most neanderthal intellect.

The button I was not seeing ( and still have no access to...) was (is

But thank you anyway :)

It appears that my issue is that I reinstall after every patch using the same MWO launcher I downloaded who the hell knows when.

Apparently it`s only when you completely re-DL everything incl the launcher If Im`understanding Niko right. Reinstalling the game in itself does nothing, accessing the "I want the launcher" part of the site appears to be the trigger. ;)

Nor did I mean to imply that, sorry if I came off as one of the "whine first, think later" dillholes that have been consistently dragging the forums down since the start of OB ;)

*Edit* OK, tried it out , and... (Co,mplete, consice instructiuons to follow)

You have to actually CLICK "Download" (not just open the DL page as implied by the OP) but you do not have to accept the DL itself. At which time the 3 buttons initially referenced appear. Clicking on "Redeem now" (said bottom left button) automatically credits the day to your account and adds an "activate" button to the launcher.

Complete instructions are always helpful and avoid confusion, see also Japanese model kits vs. US made ones. Cheers and thanks fot the hint that I can get a free day this way. :)

Heres how to clwim the download free day without downloading. Use a mobile device. Log in go to downlaod now. Click download amd the claim free day pops up under the download button ( it did on my android phone that im using right now) if it started downloading just cancel the download in progress. Check your redeemed codes page.

For those not seeing the button after hitting download, try disabling your adblocker temporarily. At least on Chrome with Adblock that made it show up for me.

I would guess it is your end somewhere Mouse. I reinstalled the whole game within an hour.(45 minutes I think)

I am in Alice Springs, so would think you have or should have a better connection.

I'd recommend getting Telstra to do a line check for you.

Thanks, that's what did it for me. I also missed actually having to click the "Download" Button on the download page before the icons suddenly showed up beneath it when the download queued - which I know was mentioned in the original post (I'm dumb), but I'll restate for clarity.

No it wasnt something ''my end''. They successfully hid this quite well and it took some digging to find it but i managed to acquire the day.
