Yesterday, I ordered Colony Wars (PS) pre-owned for $5.99, I used the AFF25 coupon code and the new total was $4.49, I saved $1.49!!! Well, I tried to use the same coupon code for Ridge Racer 4 (PS) pre-owned earlier Today, but a small window appeared and said I reach my limit for using the AFF25 coupon code, I could of saved $0.50!!! Does anyone know the limits for using the AFF25 coupon code at EBgames.com?...

I could only use it twice before the coupon ran out.

I have used it once yesterday, and trying to use it again today I get a "You have used the the allowed amount of Aff25 code"
Can you only use it once, or is there a timelimit for how often you can use it? Thanks for the help!

I've noticed that with EB codes, sometimes if you put in the code in your cart but don't go through with the purchase, it will still consider you as having used the code. This may have been what happened? Unless you used the code a while ago and forgot?

I think there is a limit of 50$ on the coupon toatl . Could be that they tally up your usage til it hits 50. but i was thinking since i hit hteir "limit" just crwate another account and you should be golden.not too sure if that works but if someone has done it that would be good to know. i probably wont find out til i order again

If you want to use the same account, 20PRWN works, too.
m_d_amore hit it on the head. You can only save $50 total using the AFF25 code.

Clear your cookies. I've used AFF25 at least 7 times and had to first clear my cookies 4 of those times.

Hmm, I always clear my cookies. And I haven't saved $50 yet using the AFF25 coupon code either! I guess you can't use the coupon code twice a week or something like that?...

I'll use the code twice a week somtimes and have no difficulty. I'm using Safari as my web browser and clearing cookies is easy. To make sure they are cleared load up your shopping cart and if you get the 'Too many AFF25' then clear them. If it is totally cleared your shopping cart should become empty (when you try to proceed). Then fill the cart again and enter the code. Works for me every time, most recently last weekend.

Does EB catch on about creating new accounts? That could work well with those "limt to 1" restrictions.
