News Release For Immediate Release
Hampstead, NC, 02 March 2007
College students, military personnel (both active and retired), lend us your ear! Here at Shrapnel Games we understand that times can be tough, and sometimes you have to choose between another case of Ramen noodles or a great strategy game, but no more! As our way of showing appreciation to two great gaming groups Shrapnel Games is now offering a 10% discount to all full-time college students and active (or retired) military personnel with the "Shrapnel's Savings For Scholars and Soldiers" program!
The "Shrapnel's Savings For Scholars and Soldiers" program is not a one-time discount, but rather every purchase made will allow the participant to always save at least 10% off the purchase price. This is on top of any other offered discount, such as the monthly Gamers Front sales or pre-order discounts, meaning that the potential discount could easily be 20%, 25%, or even 30% off the full retail price! Furthermore, if you live in the lower 48 states (including APO and FPO addresses) Shrapnel Games charges absolutely nothing for shipping when you choose Priority Mail as your shipping option, making the savings even greater!
The program is open to ALL full-time college students around the globe, and members of the American military, either currently active or retired. Becoming a member is as easy as following three easy steps.
As a college student anywhere in the world, or a member of the American military, register an account at the Shrapnel Games e-store, the Gamers Front. Users who have already registered can of course skip this step. Registration is free and gives you a number of shopping perks, such as earning reward points on your Shrapnel Games purchases. To register, visit www.gamersfront.com/xcart/home.php
We'll need a copy of your student ID or military ID. Photocopy or scan BOTH sides of your ID, providing us with the relevant information that is needed to prove you're a student or military (we understand if some information needs to be blacked out). The ID facsimile may be sent to Shrapnel Games via email, fax, or snail mail.
If submitting the ID via email send the scan of the ID to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Shrapnel's Scholars" or "Shrapnel's Soldiers" (dependent on your group). Be sure to include the user ID/name of your Gamers Front account!
If submitting the ID via fax send the fax to Annette's attention at 1-910-270-9891. Include the user ID/name of your Gamers Front account.
If submitting via snail mail it may be sent to the following address. Make sure to include the user ID/name of your Gamers Front account.

Why, you could feed your entire dorm floor or platoon!
And now the fine print
Please allow some time to pass between submitting your ID and becoming a member of the program. Users will be notified once the process is complete. The quickest path is of course via email, with snail mail taking the longest.
To receive the discount the program member must be logged into their Gamers Front account when shopping. No coupon code is necessary, the discount will automatically be applied to the subtotal prior to any shipping charges. Remember, if you reside in the lower 48 states choosing Priority Mail means free shipping!
The "Shrapnel's Savings for Scholars and Soldiers" discount becomes active once the information is processed and does not retroactively apply to previous purchases.
