Came home from work and noticed that Bayohne posted a clarification on the Digital River Pre-order code issue. We received a serial number/product code during purchase, many had assumed this only pertained to the pre-order items and was patiently waiting for their ‘real’ pre-order code. Bay attempts to clarify (but it just has me asking more questions lol…. seriouslyyy why Digital River!?)
I think the forum thread full of more confused people is an example of why Square Enix needs a simple, straight forward, yet secure online ordering and payment system. Let the masses throw money at you freely Square /sign – your fangirl

The only code is what is under the collectors Edition Bonus Package, which is only for the Collectors Edition Bonus items. No where in the email is there any other code other than my order number. The early access code is not what is under the collectos edition package because, if you purchased the original edition, you do not get any sort of code at all.
Actually, that is your pre-order bonus code there (I highlighted and bolded it). (Product Name: FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn Pre-Order Bonus Package) You will take that code and enter it into the pre-order website: http://preorder.na.finalfantasyxiv.com once the site has gone live.
Hope that clears it up!
