Nike will send out Access Codes to select customers, granting them exclusive access to select Nike products. Each code is unique to the individual, valid for a limited time and redeemable only once.

Nike reserves the right to use access codes on any product and won’t announce selections publicly prior to use. Nike also reserves the right to deactivate access codes or ban users at any time.

PROCESS

Access Codes can be distributed in person or electronically. An accompanying link will take users to a product page where they can redeem the access code for purchase.

QUESTIONS

HOW DO I GET AN ACCESS CODE?

Nike Access Codes are given out to select customers, and codes are valid only for those customers.

DOES AN ACCESS CODE GUARANTEE ME A PURCHASE?

No. The Access Code gives you access, but it doesn’t guarantee that you’ll be able to buy the product.

HOW LONG DOES AN ACCESS CODE REMAIN ACTIVE?

Access Codes are assigned unique “live times” for each product. The communication containing the code will explicitly state how long the Access Code is valid. We recommend using Access Codes as soon as they’re received, as supplies may be limited.

HOW LONG CAN I LEAVE THE PRODUCT IN MY SHOPPING CART BEFORE PURCHASING?

We recommend completing check-out as soon as possible to ensure that the product isn’t removed from your cart.

CAN AN ACCESS CODE BE USED MORE THAN ONCE?

No. Access Codes can only be used once. Those assigned to specific product sizes are valid only for those sizes.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY ACCESS CODE DOESN’T WORK?

If it doesn’t work, that means it’s been entered incorrectly, already redeemed or expired. Access Codes can only be used once, so don’t share codes with others. If you think your code has been entered correctly or hasn’t already been used, please contact us.

WHAT DOES A “DISABLED ACCESS CODE” MESSAGE MEAN?

We may disable an Access Code if it doesn’t unlock a product detail page (PDP) as intended, or if fraudulent activity is detected.

ARE ACCESS CODES SIZE-SPECIFIC?

Access Codes can be size-specific, in which case recipients can only purchase a product in the size associated with their unique Access Code.

WHAT IF THE ACCESS CODE I RECEIVE ISN’T FOR MY SHOE SIZE?

If you receive an Access Code for a different size than requested, please contact us. Due to limited sizes and availability, new Access Codes may not be available.

I RECEIVED A MESSAGE SAYING THE PRODUCT WAS UNAVAILABLE BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN ADDED TO OTHER SHOPPING CARTS. DID I MISS OUT?

If you receive this message, it means that all available units have been purchased or are currently in other users’ shopping carts. Keep checking though, because users might not complete their purchase and products may become available.

WHAT IF I RECEIVE A MESSAGE SAYING MY ACCESS CODE HAS ALREADY BEEN REDEEMED?

This means that someone else has already used the code, or the recipient has tried to use someone else’s code. Access Codes are not to be shared. If you think you’re receiving this message in error, please contact us.

WILL DISCOUNT AND PROMOTIONAL CODES WORK ON PURCHASES MADE WITH AN ACCESS CODE?

Yes. Promotional codes such as free shipping can be redeemed at checkout on purchases made with an Access Code.

      • Milicent Steve

        yeah i hope it does

    • Tomgunz84

      Hope they really do

      • BOTMAN

        Im pretty much untouchable in the bot world. I literally have the best bot a human can make. Spent tons of money for it and spend money making it better. I have yet to miss a release since 2012!

        • Tomgunz84

          I find that really hard to believe but i doubt that you’ll be able to beat this system cuss if that was the case everyone with bots would have 2k14 lebrons but they don’t so how untouchable are you now

        • P

          Your pretty much ANNOYING

        • smh

          gtfoh goofy. fuck you and yo bot!!! prolly a 12 year old kid. “wont stop my bot” dont make me laugh

    • Redeemer

      Fuck yo bot nicca!!

    • the_peepa

      smfh

    • Jehliel Celestine

      Fuck you and your bot

  • Tomgunz84

    If you ever paid attention the “Twitter Link Only” releases ALWAYS sell out the fastest thus meaning that the bots work the best on the twitter link’s normal releases gives ppl a actual chance (and if you comment don’t say it’s still not fair cuss it is i have copped a lot of heat recently you just gotta know how to do it and the best ways) but this is good that they are responding i don’t think people are gonna find a way around well at least for a while

  • the_peepa

    they doing the most

  • The only thing I don’t like about this FAQ they made for this new “access code” is they have already poked holes in where this process can go wrong. Plus the clear fact of how vague they are being about HOW DOES ONE OBTAIN AN ACCESS CODE?! —- If it’s anything like the RSVP system where they send out a picture and you have to decipher it and send in the code – bots are going to kill that. I honestly hope Nike finds a concrete way to level the playing field —- I know that sounds dumb because I sell my own bot, but I’m just a guy selling umbrellas in the rain! The game is filled with bots and you need one to level the playing field now-a-days

    • Tomgunz84

      It wont be that easy to break though (if you can even touch it at all) they are doing this new process just like the 2k14 lebrons and ppl couldn’t break that or cheat in anyway so I doubt that’ll happen

      • I understand the process for the 2k14 Lebrons and it was a great way of making limitations and qualifications you had to meet to even get a chance at the access code. But that was only limited to video game players, I don’t see how they’re going to relate that type of procedure to obtain access codes outside of video games

        • Tomgunz84

          Yeah you got me there….It’ll be interesting to see how they are gonna pull this off but you got to admit this is a great way to eliminate if not eradicate bots

          • I agree! I hope Nike gets a step closer to making it fair again.

          • Tomgunz84

            No offense/disrespect but how can you say that if your using bots and selling them not making it fair already i can see if you use them for your personal use

          • Like I said, I’m just selling umbrellas in the rain…

          • Tomgunz84

            Mmmmmm….. I guess

          • Maverick

            sellin fakes thats what your sellin

          • Quit trying to follow me on every post, I told you the last time – I’m not into that homo stuff that you keep talking about. GO AWAY

        • ROOKIE

          you the last nigga to talk here, your name is sneakerautobot my nigga

          • So because I sell my bot – I should be against Nike trying to improve their system? READ the entire conversation before jumping in…

          • ROOKIE

            Well I would, because it would affect my business and make the bot useless

  • earlyrelease

    Just called nike and the rep mentioned that nike fuel points might be a factor in being chosen for an access code.
    Another way is of course a “random” distribution of access code….another way for nike to employees to hook their friends and families in my opinion. Im tired of this.

    • Tomgunz84

      I doubt they’ll do it through fuel points but you never know i hope its a way they send a tweet out telling you to call in to get a code or something nun of that gay random selection crap that’ll be just as hard as the twitter links

  • JohnDoe6503

    I think Nike should just stop this and make Jordan’s more available to the public. It’s bad enough that your charging us 170 for sneakers that came out over 20 or more years ago
