Just an FYI that under the terms and conditions for the event, it looks like you have be purchasing/picking up your copy of the game from the Microsoft Store to get the SWAG (i.e., you couldn't pick up your game from elsewhere or digital download and get the SWAG). If someone finds out differently, please let us know.

The last Q&A on the FAQ makes me think you might be able to show your online Microsoft Store pre-order receipt (shipped to you) and still receive the bag. But yeah, they may just hand the bags to those in line to pick up the game and not those who just want to go into the store to shop for other things.
