More often than not, winners will receive the prize without prior announcement... I added what I thought was the earliest receiving date to that Persona promo album. I'm not sure about the current release date of FF Finest Box (which was initially a prize drawing item), by the way. It's Mar 28, 2007, but She apparently received this album on Mar 24, 2007.

http://vgmdb.net/album/5411 (the common receiving date in Japan seems to be Jan 24 or 25, 2008. Was Jan 31, 2008 the US equivalent date?)
http://vgmdb.net/album/10379 (Oct 14, 2008 seems to be the common receiving date)
http://vgmdb.net/album/10970 (Jan 12, 2009 seems to be the deadline of the the initial period when we could get this album by fewer coins)
http://vgmdb.net/album/14666 (I don't remember why I added Sep 2009, but this seems to be the common receiving date)

Also, we may need to have another distribution type for these albums, since "Promo/Gift" is supposed to use for "promotional items with extremely limited printings, prizes awarded to contest winners and so on.", but do Club Nintendo items fit this description, or fall under the catch-all "Enclosure"?
