In the same boat. I already have BC2 and DA from the stellar Amazon sales.
I really dont believe I will like Spore at all....

$5 via paypal via gift sound fair for the code?

PM if interested.

If no takers by tonight, I will just gamble on Spore I suppose.

Thanks!


Gone - thanks!

Did you buy the code or did you receive the email?

I'm concerned that these might be tied to the the Origin accounts email address....

Thoughts anyone?

I was just trying to give the code to my friend. He also got the invalid code message when he tried to "buy" Spore.

Has anyone been able to use a code given/sent to them from a friend/CAGer/etc.?

So is nobody gonna drop codes now that people are offering $? :P
Willing to take any extra code if they don't find homes by tonight lol


The codes are tradable by the way, but it would seem that more than a few people received invalid codes from EA, that won't work even when redeeming them the proper way.

Could be! Although I've read in previous days a few people whose codes didn't work, there seem to be a lot more getting invalid codes today.

Why does Origin\EA keep shooting themselves in the foot with these continued fails?

no wonder so many hate them...

Update. I contacted EA Chat Support and the rep was extremely helpful and gave me a Spore product activation key to add to my account, so give it a try, be nice, but as always YMMV.

Sucks I've had Origin forever and didn't get it unless it went to my spam... I never actually check spam just delete it.
Checked my father in laws which has origin also and he didn't get it.
My brother did though :(

Thanks for the update. I was in the middle of a chat session with them and they tried to put me on hold to correct the issue supposedly - then I got booted. Hopefully it was just an accident. I'm trying again as we speak. Hopefully I have a similar outcome...

even a $60 brand new free game that I wanted wouldn't be enough to get me to install that junkware on my system.

Wow - the chat rep I got was simply stellar! he gave me a code to activate the game for my friend!
thanks - CheapLikeAFox

FYI - they know the codes arent working correctly so you better contact them ASAP if you want to sort this out. The rep told me that they are making it right by adding or giving the game to us directly.

I'm assuming they will only help you if you were actually sent a code to begin with?

I did not receive the code either. I have not downloaded anything from them though. So I am downloading a few things now to see if I get an email.

I had the client downloaded but I had no games, and I got a code.

I used mine on Spore because I don't think the other games would run well on my laptop.

Thanks to the OP for posting this. I deleted the email thinking it was just some EA spam. Thank goodness for the deleted folder.

So it truly is just a crapshoot when it comes to whether or not you get a code?

I'm not too worried about it, although I have three games on Origin (Mass Effect 3 Collector's Edition, Dragon Age Origins: Ultimate Edition, Dragon Age II) and never received an email. To be honest, I'd probably never play Battlefield or Spore, anyway, so enjoy your codes, you lucky guys.
