Please note: this information is current as of Feb. 15th 2017.
FAQ: Where do I get the games / apps that came bundled with my Vive?
When purchasing a Vive, several bundled titles are included with your purchase.
The exact titles may vary depending on when your Vive was purchased. The current line-up includes The Gallery - Episode 1: Call of the Starseed, Zombie Training Simulator, Richie's Plank Experience and Everest VR.
To get these titles, you need to redeem a code which is supplied for you after purchase. There are two ways to receive the codes.
If you bought via Vive.com:
If after purchasing your Vive you have not received the codes via email within one week, please contact our Customer Care team. This post lists details on how to contact Customer Care, globally.
If you bought via a retailer:
If you do not receive your initial redemption code from your retailer, you must contact your retailer for further information and follow-up. HTC Customer Care cannot issue codes on behalf of retailers.

Also not working for me. When I click it, it flashes the cart page then takes me back to the bundled game page. I really want to play these games. Any word on a fix or manual assistance?

Spoke to Customer Service. They are aware of the issues and have notified headquarters. Current estimates of a fix are within 24-48hours.

Well I came to the right place. Was freaking as I couldn't get to anywhere to redeem my code. Gamestop said it was a STEAM code but it isn't so figured it was a VIVE code. Went there and page not working.

Sorry for your troubles.
Can you describe at what point it fails? i.e. are you able to validate the code before checking out, can you even reach the code redemption page, does the code itself fail, etc?
Let me know if you experience any difference on another browser (or even your mobile).

It's all good now. What it was doing yesterday was after hitting Reedem code, the screen would flash and show a "Your Cart is Empty" real fast then go back to last screen.
So then I tried to do it by clicking on my Account name and redeem there but it would say invalid.
Today I logged on and tried again and it worked
And I LOVE the VIVE!

**Update, nevermind. We figured it out! Thanks **
I successfully redeemed my code and received my e-mail with new codes and instructions for the installation of the free games. I followed the steps that were given:
1. Download VIVE software
2. Launch the VIVE software on your computer
3. Sign in to your HTC Account
4. Click on your profile image in the right upper corner
5. Choose "Redeem Code"
6. Type your offer code in the dialog box and the content will be added to your Library
When I click on the profile image Redeem code is not in the drop down box. Any suggestions or information? Do I need to skip these steps as use the redeem code link again with the game codes? Any information you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have a simple question about this redemption thing..
As some of you may know, I was one of the winners of the Design a Vive accessory contest so I didn't get a code for the free games. However, I talked to Support and they sent me a code to get my bundle. I tried it on steam and it worked, got The Gallery - Episode 1: Call of the Starseed and Zombie Training Simulator.
However, when I tried in Viveport, it said that it was an incorrect code and it wouldn't work. I talked again with Support and they told me to write a reply and ask if you guys know why It didn't work. Please let me know, I really want to play Richie's Plank Experience and EverestVR because they seem like great experiences.
