The Journey to Un'Goro Release Date & A Special Amazon Coin Pre-order Promotion
Journey to Un'Goro will release on April 6th. Don't just take our word for it though, here's what has lead us to this conclusion.
To start things off, the old "set your clock ahead" trick seems to be working again with the Hearthstone Client where if you set the clock ahead in time to a certain date, your Un'Goro card packs appear to be operable. This has been a common tactic to figure out release dates of content in the past and has an excellent track record of being correct. Unfortunately, Blizzard changed something which makes this no longer work, but we took screenshots prior to the tweak.
"But Flux, nothing about Un'Goro so far has been like traditional expansion releases, why should we believe this wasn't just a mistake?" you ask. Well, because there's another source of information out there now which further confirms the date. Say hello to our good friend Amazon.
Amazon is currently running a promotion which gives you 500 Amazon Coins if you pre-order the expansion through them. On their offer page, the rules clearly state that the promotion ends just before to clock ticks April 6th. Why would it be stopping then? Because you can't pre-order an expansion when it launches.
So there we have it! Journey to Un'Goro should be launching on April 6th 2017, unless something terrible happens and the developers get eaten by their own cards, or maybe the community depending on how the reveals go.
Now, if you're one of those people who hasn't yet pre-ordered Un'Goro, and you've got an Android device with the Amazon Underground App Store, maybe you should go ahead and take part in this deal. More info below!
I pre-ordered this morning when I woke up without knowing about this offer, FeelsBadMan.
Pre-order Journey to Un'Goro Through Amazon!
Links to Amazon are referral links. These let Amazon know we sent you and we get a bit of a kick-back which helps support the site. It should also be noted the offer appears to be US only. Sorry rest of the world!
Not only will you get a sweet coin kick-back through this deal, but you can also buy Amazon Coins at a discount which means overall, before the free coins, you get Un'Goro cheaper than any other methods. Oh and since it's the pre-order, you're already getting a sweet deal on packs, since it's essentially 10 free packs and a card back included!
To take advantage of this, you need an Android device which can install the Amazon Underground Appstore in order to get the correct Hearthstone app that lets you redeem the coins. You will need to install Hearthstone on the device through the Amazon Store, so if you already have Hearthstone installed, install it.
Next, you'll need to buy some Amazon Coins at a discount to get cheaper packs! The discounts change based on how many coins you buy, so stock up now by buying a bigger bundle of Coins to put towards packs post-launch. After you have your coins, you can download / enter the game on your device and pre-order.

Do you really need to place a reflink as you're owned by curse which is owned by twitch which is owned by amazon? :v
If you live in Europe and never used Amazon coins, there's now a discount, where you can buy 5000coins for 35 euro instead of 45. That's around 44 packs
Oh I didnt know that. I am in Germany atm, so no idea if its going to work in other places
as usual forgot about Europe
so ROW cant buy anything, this game is so expensive
Can anyone tell me this: Is it possible to get the Amazon Coin discount if you live in Europe or is it "41 free packs for America again because of a miscalculation where players open more guild cards" again?
I do not care if other players on other servers get better deals. Good for them/you :) But if there is a way for us Europeans to get the same great deals we should know.
So can anyone write a guide to how to enjoy/reap the same deals as the other continent?
"To take advantage of this, you need an Android device which can install the Amazon Underground Appstore in order to get the correct Hearthstone app that lets you redeem the coins.

Are there two separate Hearthstone apps?
if so is Amazon's less buggy?
"for Android welding US residents"
Eh, what? I'm a welder, where are the android welding jobs?
If you are going to do coins, be very careful of sales tax depending on your state. People have been getting stuck with almost enough coins to buy something only to have to buy some additional coins, spoiling the discount.
Must... save... more... gold...
I gave up, spent my 4k for Karazhan and a huge amount of Arenas :'(
In Europe the only thing we get is 5000 coins for 35 Euro if you've never bought amazon coins =(
Yes, but you can try doing some stuff with location.
I have already bought it through amazon coins 2 weeks ago. Now what?
I think they arent even actively trying to hide the release date, they want people to find it out for more hype than announcing it themselves.
The "set your clock ahead" actually still works, and after doing it, I can say that it is going to be on April 6th at 10:00 AM PDT / 1:00 PM EDT
Edit: For NA Server
Got 175 / 3499 coins back from amazon when I purchased in the UK, a bit worse than the 500/4999 coins here but better than nothing.
Top tip for amazon coins: buy them on black friday at 30% off (they were actually 30% off for the whole of November in 2016) then hold until you need them.
Thanks for the tip!
