IIRC, any special items from using the code in the box set are only valid if you use the code to create a new account. If you use the code on an existing account, you only get the game time, nothing more.
Within the last few years 2 different retail editions has been published.
The first one (Special Edition), containing 60 days of gametime, Interbus Shuttle
and a Letter of Recommendation could be added to an existing account, or used to create a new one.
The Shuttle and the Letter would only be applied to account if the code was used for new account creation.
The second retail edition (Commisioned Officer Edition), containing 30 days of gametime and the Cerebral Accelerator
, can also be used with both existing accounts, and account creation.
This special item will be added to account, even if you don't use the code for account creation. Do keep in mind that the special item only works on pilots who are less than 35 days old.
If you apply the code, and for some reason do not recieve your Cerebral Accelerator, please file an ingame petition.
