I followed this handy little guide and just got a code today. I made my bday two days away to be safe. If they're being selective, sorry. If you make a new account today, you will still have time to get a code before this sale runs out. Just got Shadows of the Damned, been waiting forever for a drop. Thanks op!


I think they are. I didn't get a code, so I pulled the trigger without it. Glad to hear it came through for you, though!

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

If you contact them during the day (between 10 AM and 4 PM EST) you will get an American that will actually help you. If you contact support after those hours on Origin you will get someone from overseas and they are useless as hell. I almost pulled my hair out dealing with them. I pre-purchased BF3 and all BF3 pre-purchases came with the first DLC for free. Well, when the Karkand DLC hit, it didn't activate on Origin.

I contacted support 3 times and got the outsourced techies and they never could understand my problem. They would make me repeat it a dozen times and then go "sorry sir, we do not carry that game so you cannot get it on Origin. That is why you do not have it." LOL!

I contacted their support one time during the mid-day and got a tech guy named Tim. I told him the problem and he said "shoot yeah, you clearly ordered a week before the game launched."

Not only did he give me Karkand within 2 minutes but he gave me 2 30% off Origin codes for my trouble after I told him how awful their support had been.

Converted some GS credit to 2x $20 EA Cash cards, and had no problem paying the difference ($6.xx) with my credit card.

I had problems using the EA game card with a credit card the whole day.
But I just got it to work after trying so many different methods, here's how I think it'll work for everybody.

I had 3 games I wanted and it came out to be a little bit more than $40 after tax, and only had $40 from the EA game cards.
I've added PC games to top it a little bit over $40 and it didn't work, but just now I added another $15 physical game to push it well over $40 and at the confirmation page it actually showed EA Credit and Credit Card amounts, so I went back to edit my order and erased my last item on the list (the one I didn't want in the first place) and it actually showed EA Credit and Credit Card amounts this time (even though it only showed EA Credit only and kept looping back to asking for my Credit Card Number with the same 3 games I've been trying the whole day)

So add the initial games you want, and then try to add different games that brings the total way above your EA Credit and see if the Credit Card Amount shows up at the Check Out Confirm page along side w/ the EA Credit amount. Be sure to go back and edit your cart after you see this and delete the games you don't want, go to final page again to see if the site charges your Credit Card, and hit confirm if it does.

Hope this method works for everybody else so people don't have to be cheated by this crappy online store. Never ever shopping at the EA store again. Origin SUCKS!!

PS: also if you buy over $39.99 w/ free shipping, be sure to choose 3-4 days shipping because it's also free, instead of the default 5-7 days.

Well, even though it's the last day of the sale I figured I'd tell those of you interested in getting Alice: Madness Returns for the PS3, that the code that allows you to download the original Alice is still good. I just used mine. There is no expiration date on the card itself. It's a 1 gig download that normally cost $10 on PS Store. Just a heads up for those wondering about the code. I just received my shipment from the 50% sale and it's stamped with green stickers on all sides of the box saying "Time Sensitive Product". Any ideas what that's about? It was shipped with big air bubbles for packing material, and it was folded plastic, so it's a factory sealed product, not a rewrap.

Holy crap, the mystery of the phantom ME2 continues. I'm slated to receive Alice, NFS Shift 2, and Dead Space 2 today but not a peep has come out about what's up with the 360 ME2 I ordered the same day. I don't think I'm going to bother calling/chatting with them until later this week but really; what the hell?

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

That "time sensitive product" is just the normal box they have been using for years. Supposed to make us think they rushed it, but it's nothing special.

fyi for anyone that cares, the xbox Shift 2 they sent me was the "limited edition".
Their site also says "get 2 dlc packs" now but I didn't get anything. Maybe that is for after this sale ends.

Why does every single game (at least PS3) that Origin sends out have an identical cut/scratch in the back of the game case?

My Dante had a scratch on the front of the case, but SOTD and Alice were both fine. Maybe just bad luck?
