Meh, own all three. Would have rather they sent out discount codes.

Has anyone else run into the problem I had with redeeming the promo code. My code always says its invalid, and ea wont give me a new one since its a promo. Anyone else have this issue? or just me and my bad luck lol.

This might be kind of a DUH thing, but be sure you are adding the BASIC editions of these games to your cart and not the repackaged editions with DLC add-ons and what not.

So I go to my Origin program (to make sure e-mails are turned on) and open it up. It's telling me I need to update so I press update. It downloads the update and then doesn't do anything else. It's like it downloads the update and just stops the application :lol:. Next time I launch it it says you need to update and downloads the update again and does the same thing.

Nice EA

Here's a little horror story for you. On Origin, the promo bar didn't show up for me, apparently you have to "pay" using a credit card and not PayPal so I accidentally bought Dragon Age Origins. Long story short, I'm supposedly being issued a refund but Dragon Age Origins is still in my list of games.

Makes me wonder if it will disappear or if I should get another copy as I already own BFBC2 and that I don't want Spore at all.


That's odd. Worked out fine for me (the option to pay went away after I entered the promo code, just had to enter my address still.) My problem was trying it on Origin's site rather than reading the instructions and seeing it had to be done in the desktop client.

The difference is that EA isn't doing a deep discount for ALL; they're giving a bonus to some of their existing customers.

Nothing for me yet, and I checked spam and even logged in to make sure that g-mail is what I used to make the account. :(
We have Dragon's Age on PS3, but I would not mind having the PC version at all.

Thanks, EA. You jerks!

I asked my friend if he got anything and he didn't, so they're clearly rewarding those with larger junk, ifyouknowwhutImean.

I didn't have it checked to send me promo stuff, that's probably why I didn't get it. I just unchecked it, but probably too late now. :(

Yeah I just looked at my account and I had it unchecked also, so I got punished for not liking EA's spam in my inbox. YAY!

I've been on EA account for years now (since BFBC2 release), but I just used the Origin client today to dl a game...are my chances slim on getting an email for a free game?

I got the email (thanks for telling me to check my spam folder, fellow CAGs) but the promo code is coming up as invalid.

Keep it classy, EA.

Edit: The code was invalid on the website, but it worked in the client. I'm clearly spoiled by Steam, where a storefront is a storefront is a storefront.

Contacted EA Live Support. They indicated that the codes were given out completely at random. They also stated that they couldn't (likely meant wouldn't) do anything about those members who did not receive a code.

Were you using it on their site or in the desktop client? Can't be on their site (was doing it for me too); has to be in the actual Origin client itself.

I never bought anything from there before, but get e-mails all the time from EA, so that's probably why I got the code. Only games I had on there were Dragon Age 1, 2, and Mass Effect 2, and I bought those off of Amazon.

Haha, totally in my spam folder. Anyways, the only one I didn't have was Spore, so... eh. wtf.

I'm sure this is EA's way of getting me comfortable with actually buying something from their store rather than just inputting codes from boxed copies of games, amazon-bought copies, and steam codes (the ones that work).
