All players with one or more byes must submit their deck list online by 9am Saturday Morning.
You can submit your deck list online here.

Players with one or more byes will receive the promotional card as well as the boosters at the byes station at scheduled times based on number of byes.

Sleep-In Special recommended check in times: 1 bye – 9h45 am / 2 byes - 10h45 am / 3 byes - 11h45 am*

Question:
I have already registered for the GP, but I've won byes since then, what should I do about the Sleep-In Special?

Answer:
First, congrats!
Second, stop worrying :)
All players with byes on the official Wizards list will automatically get the Sleep-In Special, so you don't have anything to do, except checking up the player list posted on site or online to verify that the number of byes assigned to you is correct.

Currently, the maximum capacity is for 2500 players. We will keep everyone updated on how preregistrations are doing so everybody can plan ahead.

Check in on Friday is not required, the promo card will be given to everybody at the player meeting at the beginning of the tournament (while quantities last) on Saturday morning. On site on Friday, there will be a list of the preregistered players as of Thursday night. You will be able to check if the information and the number of byes are correct. This very recommended step will help us resolve any issues before they can happen. An updated list will be posted Saturday morning before the start of the tournament.
7How can I pay when I preregister online?
When you register online, you can either pay with Paypal, or you can pay with your credit card. We use Paypal to process credit card payments, and you do NOT need a Paypal account to pay for your registration. We prepared a quick guide on how to pay with your credit card in Paypal here.
8Can I register my friend using my account?
You cannot sign in twice, you need to register your friend with his name, DCI and email address but you can pay with your credit card/Paypal account.
9What is the registration deadline?
Registration deadline: online is Friday May 19th at 10h00 pm, onsite registration is available until closing. There is NO registration on Saturday morning.
10What if we pre-register for the main event or a side event and then can't go? Will there be refunds available?
Players should register for events only when they are 100% sure to attend the event. The preregistration promotion is to give us the opportunity to plan ahead of time in terms of number of players and space. We will not be processing refunds unless something affecting a large number of individuals happens, (tsunami, airport shutdown, sand storm etc).
11How many Grand Prix Trials will there be?
Standard Grand Prix Trials are firing up as soon as 32 players sign up; they start at 10h00 am, latest is 8 pm. In addition, there will be 4 Sealed Grand Prix Trials that will start respectively at 12h00 pm, 2h30 pm, 5h00 pm and 7h30 pm.
12What is the prize payout for the main event?
The base prize payout is over $50,000 for a Grand Prix with fewer than 3000 participants and pays down to 64th place. For more information on prizes, please visit Wizards' website.
13Are you allowed to attend a Grand Prix without registering for the main event to just spectate and see the vendors?
The event is open to the public, spectators and members of the press are welcomed!
14If I have byes do I need to be present for the player meeting?
Because the Sleep-In Special is included with your registration, you do not have to attend the player meeting at 9am. If you have byes, you can use our online decklist submission provided by email. All decklists must be received by 9h am on Saturday, May 20th.
15How will I know how many byes I got?
Byes are determined based on Planeswalker points. For more information on byes, please visit Wizard's website.

We will do our best to print a player list as soon as possible, you will find 1B, 2B or 3B next to your name, and the number represents how many byes you have. It's the player’s responsibility to make sure they bring a proof of the number of byes they have. A print out of your account with your name and the number of points or the results of the GPT you won.
16Will I be able to pay by credit card or debit card on-site?
To speed up the process, we will be taking only cash payments on site. If you want to register using a credit card, please preregister online. Some of the vendors on site may accept credit or debit cards payments and there will be third party ATMs on site.
17Do you accept US$ on-site?
Yes we do, the rate will be announced on site.
18What time do the side events start?
All side events are listed here. Registration for the side events start one (1) hour before the start time and end 10 minutes before.
19Am I allowed to trade on-site?
Trading is permitted on site, but the following activities are not:
  • Advertising without prior written permission from Game Keeper event staff.
  • Buying, selling, or soliciting to buy or sell cards to anyone except Authorized Dealers.
  • Altering cards in exchange for money or any other types of compensation.
