According to their message, it will be added to every order over €17 (excl. Shipping) while stock lasts.
I've placed an order as well, and assume they add it to the order  :)

My understanding was that you had to order one of the following packages and a free Spiel 17 tile would be included:

Nikolaus-Paket 1 (17 Euros)
Nikolaus-Paket 2 (27 Euros)
Nikolaus-Paket 3 (37 Euros)
Nikolaus-Paket 4 (47 Euros)

Maybe I'm wrong? ???

It doesn't say you have to order one of those.
It says that with any order for over € 17, you get a Spiel '17 tile, while stocks last.
And for the packages it's also while stock lasts.
Google/Facebook translation isn't ideal, I found it easier to understand in German

Edit:
Just received their newsletter that explains it in English :
Additionally, everyone who orders anything worth 17€+ (before shipping costs), gets the famous „Spiel17“ tile from Carcassonne on top!
All this is possible as long as the stock lasts but ultimately ends at December the 10th.

For now it seems that you only get it when you order something above 17+ euro's

Ugh I would have happily purchased Paket 1, but I just bought half of that stuff 2 weeks ago.   :(n)

Just for fun I put American Railroads and 2 more maze tiles to get over 17E, but the tile never showed up in my cart. 

Ohh well, I guess I will forget about Spiel tiles from here on out and maybe trade the one I do have away.

It was not like that, last year. Each title cost 0.20 € and you could get more for every 5 euros of purchase I think.

So many days waiting for this. it's bullshit

Dan, I'll arrange for you to buy it for me next year and I'll pay for it, the shipping costs included will come out cheaper. If you go to Spiel 2018

This is a pile of garbage punishing people who bought things after Essen and before now. I don’t need or want anything from  Cund.co except Star Wars Expansion 1 which is under €17 before shipping. So angry right now. Let’s screw long-term faithful customers who can’t afford a trip to Essen. That sounds like a good idea.

Perhaps they had a look on ebay and saw how much people were willing to pay, so adjusted their prices accordingly?

It's not a complete loss. If you can afford the 17 Euros (closer to 30 when shipping is included) then it's probably worth buying stuff even if you already own it, then trading it or selling to make the money back.

I have no firm plans to visit Essen next year. But we don't know for sure that there will be a Spiel 18 tile anyway. I kind of get the impression that this might be the last one...

Marketing promotions (for any company) usually don't give a crap about faithful, long-term customers. They are always looking toward adding new customers. This is why companies create product after product and promotion after promotion that anger their core patrons. They don't have to go out of their way to serve us or make us happy, because they already have us in the palm of their hand — and they know it.

Just look at how many of us were appalled/devastated/angered/whatever about the artwork change, and yet we went right ahead and bought the damned thing. And there are the repetitive Monasteries/Temples in Not France, wind roses, crop circles, Leipzig, and more ... these are gimmick products with dubious long-term value to the game. They aren't really designed to make Carcassonne play better so much as to make humans pay better. Marketing concerns drive their development. Of course one of the worst offenders is the annual hard-to-get "spiel" tile that adds nothing to gameplay. Looking at it rationally rather than emotionally, it's junk cardboard. Earlier, wiser generations would just roll their eyes at us. Chasing all this stuff really is a mild form of insanity (and I'm scolding myself here, too).

All that to say ... they're never going to stop pulling these shenanigans, because they work. We get angry, and then we give them our money anyway — for products with too-low ratios of play value to acquisition cost. As long as we keep doing this, they will keep doing that.

F*****g true. I'm so frustrated that I did not buy later. I feared that the expansions that were left would be over, and I don't have enough cash to expend 17€ again ;_;
