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.


did you contact them through the live chat in the Origin client or through a web browser? I tried through the web browser earlier today but the option is grayed out and I can't click on it. I tried through the client and there is
a 200+ minute wait just to chat with an representative, lol EA you fail once again

You have a decent chance of getting one of the free games through EA's live support.. but it's always a crapshoot. I had no problems getting Crysis activated on Origin the first attempt I made contacting their support.. but my friend had to go through over 5 reps just to get Mass Effect activated. It's always going to vary, half of their support reps probably have no idea what they're doing.

That queue was definitely exaggerated for me. I started at 190ish minutes and about 90 minutes later I was talking to a rep. Still way longer than I'd like to wait but fortunately you don't need to babysit the chat. I explained the problem, gave my email and was asked what game I wanted. Another 10 minutes later Bad Company 2 was in my library.

I did it through origin and there was only an 4 minute wait when I did it so it was pretty quick.

after 2 hours I finally contacted a rep through Origin live chat, explained about the free game code not working they asked for my email and which game I wanted, five minutes later they gave me a working code for Spore

I know Orgin gets a lot of crap, some deserved, but they were very helpful and easy to deal with tonight.

I'm sure they're getting flooded in customer service, which caused the long wait times. Plus, it's not too hard to surf the net for an hour while waiting for a free game I'll never play.

You can buy it on amazon this week for 5 bux (or 7.50 for the ultimate edition)

Deal is dead now. Title edited to reflect its passing.

Glad to have been of service to my fellow CAGs!

I know this is dead, but another update. The code I got yesterday just would not work (that and origin is acting up for some reason) so I had to contact them again today and the rep added Spore to my account right then and there. so I have not issues with their CS at all, love it.

As far as the client though, the CS Chatbox kept freezing on me today, very annoying, had to connect with reps three times before it did not freeze.

As I think I mentioned upthread, when I wanted to get my BF3 Alpha and Beta items out of my library, it took less than 10 minutes holding then IMing the Origin CSR thru the app to resolve things.
