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.

6I'm looking at registering for GP Montreal, I just wanted to know if I register online if I have to be there on Friday May 19th to check in as well
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.

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).

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.
