Received one. I already have ultimate DA:O for the ps3, and don't care for BF. Is spore a good game to mess around with?

Haven't got the email yet, but if I do get one, my choice is clear. I already own Spore & Dragon Age.

Thanks for the heads up.

I've never actually bought anything from origin. All my games on the service were activated using keys from games I bought on steam. I assume that would mean that I wont be getting that email.

Anybody get an email without ever buying anything from origin?

Oh wait, I just got the email. Pretty sweet.

I actually have 2 origin accounts (it's a long story). I wonder if I'll get a code for that second account, too.

EA is probably rolling the e-mails out to every customer now, so keep your pants on, fellow CAGs (you might want to invest in a belt too). I got my at 7:57 PM EST. I own BFBC2 which is an amazing game. The PC version has fantastic multiplayer modes and a challenging yet fun story mode with some of the most amusing characters I've ever seen in a FPS game. The campaign is WAY better than the CoD like crap campaign that BF3 got.

As for me I never played Spore or any Dragon Age game for that matter. I remember pre ordering Spore and never picking up due to hearing that it was only decent. I actually heard that Dragon Age Origins was really good along with the original game but I heard II was crap. But again, I never played any of them, lol.

Make sure the expiration date is in the OP and possibly the title; its June 23rd at 10pm PDT

I don't like having a sig, but for CAG, I figured I'd sheep along.

This was at the top of my spam folder too. Thanks for the heads up OP. Since I already have two of those games I guess I can grab Spore.

I already own BFBC2 and DAO [Regular Edition, Awakening, and also Ultimate], so Spore it is.
Thanks, EA! :D

I've never made a purchase on Origin proper, but I did buy BF3 (pre-order), Dragon Age Collection and Burnout Paradise from Amazon and activated on Origin. I also redeemed Battlefield 2 with my old CD key.

I wonder what the exact criteria is. Anybody get the code who has never purchased on Origin proper but has activated games there?

Woo hoo - just got this as well. Guess I'll get BF:BC2 - didn't like DA and I don't think I'd like Spore.

As a simple heads up: I didn't read the email all the way and tried to do it through the Origin store through web browser and the code didn't work.

Read it again and found out you do it through the Origin program like it says in the email, silly me.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

EA sends out a lot of spam so I used to unsubscribe from everything they sent but then i stopped getting offers as well. I *think* you might have to put up with their nonstop spam to get these but that's just a guess.

So subscribe to their emails. You might still be able to get the free code and you can always cancel again in a few days.
