So, probably should hold onto some of those keys. My other assumption is that they will either charge for them eventually, or they are testing the SHIFT system for a future game for charging for some "perk".........

SHiFT, as a whole, is pointless. Just an extra layer with zero value. Maybe it'll change, but it's dumb right now.

I agree, too, with whomever mentioned that these should be available in-game. Maybe incredibly rare and hard to get, but available. Someone playing this 10 years from now won't have these code opportunities, though I expect they'll release 10 or so permanent codes, and there are almost definitely people not using the internet much wondering what the hell that stupid, very tempting chest is for.

I have 7 codes now. Had 1, then put in 2 codes and had 5. Not sure how. My buddy did exactly what I did and has 6. The math doesn't add up for either of us. 1 + 4 codes = 7 for me, 6 for him. Same codes. No clue what that's about.
Music for the discerning:
