Default Shift Details and Instructions -- GET A BONUS GOLDEN KEY

Shift is our way to reward fans like you with additional in-game items for Borderlands 2, such as Golden Keys, loot and other goodies.

http://shift.gearboxsoftware.com

If you link your Shift account to any given platform (PSN, Steam, Xbox Live) from within Borderlands 2 -- not the site itself -- you'll receive a bonus Golden Key! Learn more about Golden Keys here: http://forums.gearboxsoftware.com/sh...d.php?t=147008

Upon linking your Shift account from in-game (Main Menu -> Extras -> Shift Code) the bonus Golden Key will be automatically added to your inventory, not sent as a code in a separate e-mail. To verify whether or not you've received your bonus Golden Key, return to the Main Menu then navigate back to the Shift Code screen -- if you see a message under "My Offers" titled "Welcome to Shift!" then you'll know you've got it!

For word of opportunities to obtain Shift codes, Keep an eye on GearboxSoftware.com and the Gearbox Software Forums as well as our Twitter and Facebook. You can also follow @SHiFTStatus on Twitter for the latest updates on the status of the Shift service.

NOTE: Shift is not used to redeem or activate pre-order bonuses like Premiere Club -- that is handled separately by each platform's respective online service. An Xbox Live Gold account is required to use Shift on Xbox 360.

No code required! The bonus Golden Key is instantly added to your profile when you link your Shift account in-game :)

Have you activated your Shift account through the confirmation e-mail?

If not, go ahead and do that and you should get it.

Else, give it a few more minutes and if it doesn't take, re-link. If that doesn't take, file a support ticket at gearboxsoftware.com/contact so we can look into it.

Is the age you have to be to sign up with Shift 18? I am 17 and therefore old enough to play Borderlands 2 yet I am unable to sign up for Shift with my current birthday. I am quite disappointed that despite being able to play the game even when I am within the boundaries of the law, I am unable to sign up for the Shift service to add to my game experience.
