How to get a Sneak Peek code?

How to get a Sneak Peek code? Can't Post

I'm in Australia, and I want to see the sneak peek (I think -- if it's as long as rumoured it may not be a good idea.), but because North America gets it almost a full month (more in some areas) earlier than all the other territories for some weak reason, that can't happen unless I make an order of the U.S copy, perhaps from Amazon.
I plan to get the film on Blu-Ray when it releases here, so I'm not going to go paying for a U.S copy as well. The AU version isn't up for pre-order ANYWHERE yet that I can see. Unsure

Is there any way to get a code in such a situation, such as making an order and then cancelling after recieving the code, or is it only delivered upon shipment?
Sorry to ask this, but I've been getting frustrated trying to figure this out.

I think JB HiFi is doing pre orders, but idk if you get a code.

Anyway for all those who do have codes... For the love of all things tolkien use screen recorders when you watch the stream!!!!!!!! Tongue

I ordered from Amazon.co.uk and they emailed the code within minutes of the order being placed. :)

The code [In reply to] Can't Post

I ordered The Hobbit Blue-ray and they haven't sent me the code yet at all, do we need to ask them.

Maybe check your order [In reply to] Can't Post

I know it's pedantic, but did you type in the correct e-mail address? My code came instantly from making the order. I'd wait 48 hours and then either email them, or cancel your order.

The code [In reply to] Can't Post

Ok thnx, I'll wait till tommorow but if I dont get anything then I'll just live with it. I Won't cancel the order, because seriously, I'm a Hobbit, massive hobbit fan, and it will probably be put on Youtube some how so I don't care.

It will definitely end up on youtube [In reply to] Can't Post

And if it doesn't, we'll pick the sneak peek apart here piece by piece. Wink There's no such thing as over-analysis.

And welcome to TORn!

Free code! I don't have enough money to buy the Blu-ray at the moment. So I'll ask for the EE for Xmas. Tongue

I think this marketing strategy sucks [In reply to] Can't Post

blowflies eggs. I really despise and hate all this nonsense. They have made enough cash already, just let everyone see the damn trailer free.

I think it will only work out side the US [In reply to] Can't Post

Because the US orders can be shipped before March 24, we will get the code in our DVD/Blu-Ray. Other countries, where the actual movie is shipped after March 24, get the code with their pre-order.

What is this word? Tongue

"Now this babe was of greatest beauty; his skin of a shining white and his eyes of a blue surpassing that of the sky in southern lands - bluer than the sapphires of the raiment of Manw; and the envy of Meglin was deep at his birth, but the joy of Turgon and all the people very great indeed." -The Fall of Gondolin
