@believer258 At the cart screen in the origin client. I hear you also do it on the web page.
#102 Posted by joey (1030 posts) -

Holy shit, it actually worked! I got Burnout Paradise!

#103 Posted by IceColdGamer (691 posts) -

@FluxWaveZ: It was emailed to me for owning Origin. I thought all people had it?

#104 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19824 posts) -

@IceColdGamer: Nope. I had an Origin account before this mess and I was never sent a survey. Most people in this thread probably haven't seen it.

Yeah, I also didn't get a survey but the code worked for me for one game only. I'm happy with a free game, NFS Hot Pursuit. Ought to be a good podcast game.

#106 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19824 posts) -

It seems that either the code now only works for one game, or that it's in the process of being disabled entirely.

Or not. Seems like things are a bit weird overall.

#107 Posted by Cameron (633 posts) -

It's still working. I just got BFBC2. I'm not going to push my luck and try for two though. The only other thing I'd want and don't already own is The Saboteur.

#108 Posted by Delta_Ass (3807 posts) -

Looks like it only works for one game.

#109 Posted by ClairvoyantVibrations (1019 posts) -

Still works! Burnout for free!

#110 Posted by Phatmac (5921 posts) -

Cool I'll try this once I go home.

#111 Posted by McGriddle550 (346 posts) -

I got spore for free, I'm not sure if that was the right decision but fuck it.

#112 Posted by SexyToad (2939 posts) -

Works, just got Medal of Honor!

#113 Posted by CollegeGuyMike (398 posts) -

I just got Spore because... Man, I don't even know.

Code seems to only be one time use per person now, though.

#114 Posted by Deathdealer108 (310 posts) -

Just got Dragon Age: Origins. Thanks!

#115 Posted by Mystyr_E (1358 posts) -

I got Dragon Age 2...........I really don't know why but without money for Borderlands 2 for awhile, need a new RPG

#116 Posted by Razorlution (203 posts) -

Still works, got Burnout Paradise for free

#117 Posted by super2j (2067 posts) -

How much longer do you think until this code goes away. While i would like to use it for bf3 dlc but i am not sure which dlc to go for.

As for need for speed, i got it on the last summer steam sale. And all i can say is that, there is like no one online. If a lot of you got it, then Lets all start playing it

#118 Posted by DetectiveSpecial (472 posts) -

Well I'll be dipped in shit........

Got NFS: Shift. Guess they really want to get an install base for Origin.

#119 Posted by elessarLOTR (61 posts) -

I'm pretty sure we made a huge impact on the performance of the site. Just like a really poorly done DDOS. Also got Burnout Paradise

#120 Posted by ProjektGill (774 posts) -

I really hope they don't ban us all for this but I did get Dragon Age 2 and Burnout Paradise for free, so that's cool.

#121 Edited by Ducksworth (670 posts) -

I don't have Origin yet, will get it just for this. Are there any risks in using actual billing information with this coupon?

I love the idea of John Lennon getting super psyched for a free $20 Origin voucher!

#123 Posted by Ducksworth (670 posts) -

I think the jig is up. I've tried applying the code to some of the titles it's confirmed to work with and get a "Invalid Promo Code" in response. Either that or it's limited to a one time use now since I managed to grab something.

#124 Posted by j0lter (304 posts) -

@elessarLOTR: The site takes like 1 minute for each page to load for me lol. At least they're getting some publicity out of this

#125 Posted by Vegetable_Side_Dish (1751 posts) -

I REFUSE TO JOIN THE ELECTRONIC ARTS BOTNET

#126 Posted by crusader8463 (14755 posts) -

Doesn't work. I type it in and hit apply and it just reloads the page. Oh well. Nothing on there I want any way.

#127 Posted by ez123 (2012 posts) -

Got Crysis because I knew that if I got ME1, I'd want to play the whole series again on the PC. Ain't nobody got time for that.

EA games only. I tried to use it for RE5 last night and it did that to me. Used it on Spore for the hell of it and it worked.

It was Command and Conquer and it did not work.

#130 Edited by crusader8463 (14755 posts) -

@TyCobb: Weird. Now it's working, but only for one game.

#131 Posted by weavminas (93 posts) -

I found out about the promo last night when I did the survey. The code didn't work for The Walking Dead, Mass Effect 3, or Battlefield for me. I got it to work on SimCity 4 but Origin is still such an inferior service, I won't be using it again.

#132 Posted by Jeffsekai (7155 posts) -

I got Spore.

#133 Posted by GS_Dan (1433 posts) -

Got all excited. Then remembered I live in the UK.

#134 Posted by MayorFeedback (685 posts) -

Awesome, grabbed Dragon Age: Origins since I've never gotten around to playing it.

#135 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (5008 posts) -

Might pick up Mirror's Edge.

#136 Posted by pw2566ch (499 posts) -

This is pretty nice. I picked up Red Alert 3 Uprising. Now I own all of the Command & Conquer games.

*sad face, I don't live in the US :(.

edit: I actually installed it, tried it a couple of times, and then uninstalled it.

#139 Posted by Angre_Leperkan439 (369 posts) -

I love you.

Got Burnout Paradise for free. Tried Arkham City first, couldn't get it to work.

And then it told me the promo code no longer worked when I tried other stuff. Seems to be limited to one per customer now.

Either way, thanks!

AHAHA, i get what internet meme you referencing there.

#141 Edited by Angre_Leperkan439 (369 posts) -

And for anybody wondering, here's a list of games people have used it on (from what I've seen so far)

Crysis: Warhead

The Saboteur

Burnout: Paradise

Need For Speed Underground (Might be Undercover instead, I may have been wrong)

Spore

Shank

Shank 2

Sim City 4

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit

Dead Space 1 and 2

Darkspore

BF2142

Bulletstorm

FIFA 12

BF2

SHIFT 2

Need for Speed Shift

Mirror's Edge

BF3 (if you use Slick Deals link apparently)

Karkand DLC

That's just some of the options I've seen. Add to the list!

EDITED: More games! Saw a dude who had 10 games in his cart.

#142 Posted by IrrelevantJohn (1156 posts) -

@Angre_Leperkan439: Wait... they started selling Underground 1? That would be sweet but I think you meant undercover.

#143 Posted by Angre_Leperkan439 (369 posts) -

@IrrelevantJohn: Probably. The Origin Store is so laggy I'm not even gonna try to check.

#144 Edited by Solh0und (1957 posts) -

They fixed it(As in you can only get one game) :(

I wanted to get a handful of games for free too .

#145 Posted by clstirens (854 posts) -

@Angre_Leperkan439: Battlefield 3 works if you use the Slick Deals link.

You can also get Back to Karkand

#146 Posted by jlev880 (212 posts) -

Still works as of 4:09 Eastern Time

Updated. Thanks!

You can use this outside the US by going to http://store.origin.com/?ipr=ty to access the US store, and using a random US address on the billing page. Of course, use at your own risk: it's almost certainly a breach of their TOS so could theoretically lead to your account being banned, but I can't really see that happening.

Grabbed Burnout Paradise. Glad I waited for the best deal.
