RSG §6.12.2. Promo - This tag should only be used where it is clear the item was released as such, for example, it is explicitly mentioned on the release, or by the label, artist, or other reliable source. Retail releases with stamped, stickered, or similarly altered covers and / or media are to be considered the same as retail, as should retail releases with cut spines, marked or cut barcodes, or other such defacement -- these promo designations are considered to be post-manufacture, and do not require a separate / unique release. Additionally, retail releases that include 'one-sheet' promotional press-release or feedback type pages are not to be considered different than the retail version."
