June 2014 BOGO Promo Redemption Info

I have heard some reports that some people are confused or don't understand what the June Buy One Get One offer was or how to redeem it. It's really pretty simple. The offer was a free second tool of equal or lesser value with purchase of qualifying RAD Studio, Delphi and C++Builder XE6 products. Here are some steps to help you redeem if you purchased during the offer period.

Step 1 - Check if you are eligible. If you purchased a Delphi, C++Builder or RAD Studio XE6 product between May 26, 2014 and June 30, 2014 then check the list of qualifying products at http://www.embarcadero.com/bogo-terms to see if the product you purchased qualifies to get a free additional tool. You will see that some products like Starter, Academic, Recharge and Multi-Packs didn't qualify.

Step 2 - Install and register your XE6 product. The free product is issued to the same named user as the paid product so you have to register your paid product first.

Step 3 - Choose your free product from the redemption page. Click here for the redemption page. Enter your registered XE6 serial number and choose your free products.

You'll get your free product serial number emailed to the email address on the account where your XE6 tool is registered and you'll get a download link for the software.

We're giving some extra days after the July 15 deadline to redeem. Be sure you do it within the next week.

Here are some potential issues and how to avoid them:

  • If it won't let you redeem because you haven't installed and registered your XE6 product yet, install and register your XE6 product and then come back to the page to redeem
  • Don't choose a C++Builder or RAD Studio Add-On Pack as your free item if you own Delphi. Don't choose a "Professional edition Add-On Pack" if you don't have a Professional edition tool to add it to. Just be sure to choose an additional tool that logically makes sense.
  • If it won't let you redeem because you logged into the redemption page with a different user account than you used to register the product, then make sure you log into the redemption page with the same account that you used to register your XE6 product.
  • If it says your purchase was made outside the offer period then check to see if you did purchase outside the date range and if that is the case, you are unfortunately not eligible for this offer.

If your purchase didn't qualify for this offer, you are still likely eligible to download the free Bonus Pack items including the FireMonkey and VCL Premium Style Packs from http://cc.embarcadero.com/reg/rad_studio.
