Three days ago, I logged into my expired WoW account to see that they were offering me seven free days. Since I was just about to go on a three-day camping trip, I figured I'd claim those days after I returned, but when I logged in today, the offer was gone. What happened to that promotion? The original offer didn't mention a time limit. Did it just move somewhere else, or did it expire?
Those offers typically have an expiration date, though it may be in small print.
There are a couple possibilities:
- Blizzard offered 7 free days back in November in preparation for the Cataclysm release. Not sure why it'd appear this late on your account, but it could just have been an error.
- I vaguely recall receiving a couple "come back to us" kind of offers on my second (now expired :)) account. It's possible that you received one of those and it also expired.
To be certain, I'd contact Blizzard's support and see what they say.
Blizzard removed that program and instead made World of Warcraft entirely free to play until Level 20.
