I did this an hour ago and it worked just fine, but now even with brand new account it's saying it's an invalid promo code. Possibly they caught on?

when you get a bunch of people redeeming the code for multiple games, EA is bound to take notice and end the promo
it's to be expected.

FYI in case some people who took a bunch of games and are worried their games would get revoked. Looks like EA will not do anything.

Hi everyone,

The coupon code is now expired; we’ll honor all sales made with the coupon code over the weekend and hope fans enjoy their games.

It wasn't ruined. You had two days to use your code; don't bitch about it when you had the opportunity to use it and didn't.

It's a publicity stunt, anyway. They did the same thing on 11/21 last year and on 12/22 in 2010; I have over 40 games I got for free from them now, including a few free single purchases between then and now. They are intentionally making the same "mistake" multiple times because they need the exposure and client traffic. It costs them mere pennies to let us download their software, and digital downloads are infinitely distributable. It's not like we're running the company under.

We as a community feel that it would be best if you didn't trade on here anymore. Despite your 350 positive transactions, I'm deactivating your account on 99Gamers because you offend me. I'm unrelatable, give poor customer service, and am now taking away your invested time and money because I don't like you.

Best,

Hmm, not sure it was a publicity stunt. If you look at that EA forum, people are complaining they ended the promotion early and can't get their game even though they took the survey. The way it went down, it looked like EA was scrambling over the weekend.
1. Code went viral. People could buy a bunch of games.
2. Few hours later, EA tried to fix it to allow only one game per purchase.
3. People found an exploit for that.
4. EA shut down the whole promotion code after about 18-24ish hours.
I work at company dealing with digital transactions and believe me people try to hack the systems to get free stuff and the company doesn't just go oh well. Yes, it doesn't mean that much for EA's bottom line but they don't take this stuff lightly. This is true for iTunes, Amazon, Origin, Steam, Facebook, Google Play, etc. I'm pretty sure someone/groups in EA are going to get yelled at Monday.

Looks like you guys don't have to worry about your games being pulled.
Now I wish I had taken more advantage of this thing instead of the one measly game I got.

Darn if I knew this I would not have wasted the time with the survey and just got a bunch of games instead of just one. Does not matter too much as I already own most of the games that have over 80 on metacritic anyways.

It was scheduled to run until Oct 28th, since the promo didn't run until then it was ruined. That seems to be the running theme anymore: rape, rape, rape before anyone else gets a chance. Which is sad because it wasn't always like this.
I certainly didn't have two days to use the code. I popped in on the site one day after the thread was started. I'm not sitting on CAG 24 hours a day, although I guess I should if I want in on anything good.
