Message Text: AMD's existing 'Never Settle Reloaded' bundle will be refreshed with the latest iteration of the program, dubbed 'Never Settle Forever.'

The program goes live today and ibrings some changes. Beyond the fact that AMD is renewing Never Settle, is how the redemption program works. With Never Settle Reloaded and previous editions of the bundle, AMD has been bundling offers for specific games with specific products. With Never Settle Forever, AMD is moving away from a fixed game model to a pick-your-game model that lets buyers redeem games off of a revolving list of several games.

With Never Settle Forever AMD is also moving redemption into 3 "Radeon Rewards" tiers: Bronze, Silver, and Gold, with the tiers tied to video cards of increasing value. Each tier in turn has its own list of games - these lists currently being supersets of each other as you go up in tiers - with buyers getting 1, 2, or 3 games off of each list respectively.

This tier system will also serve to slightly simplify AMD's redemption system, as this will see AMD contracting the number of card/game configurations from 5 to 3:

AMD Never Settle Forever: Radeon Rewards Tiers

Cur. Number of Games on Tier

8
7900 Series
Gold

Another change in the program is that AMD is now going to allow buyers to "bank" their redemption credit, in anticipation of future titles. Buyers may choose to use their redemption coupon now or in the future, with those choosing to bank their coupon betting on being able to redeem those coupons for newer/better games in the future.

Note that silver and gold tier coupons, good for 2 and 3 games respectively, must have all of their games redeemed all at once; the credits can?t be split. In addition, redemption coupons/credits are only valid until the end of 2013, so while buyers can bank their credits they can't bank them for too long, as they'll need to spend them by the end of the year.
