    I've bought a few codes from the store over the years.

    They all worked great.

    I got one this morning for my birthday that doesn't work at all.

    Anyone else ever have this problem?

    Wow. No I don't buy codes from there, but that really sucks. Corrupt employee maybe?

    Gotta ask... Did you cut/paste the code over? was there possible a blank space at the front or end of the paste?

    Hope you get it corrected!

    Earlier this month I bought 3 codes. 1 of them didn't work. I did the copy/paste it and typed it, nothing would work. I paged a GM and they told me where to go. You end up going to ea.com and typing in your question. They replied to me in 24 hrs saying they need more time to look into the problem.

    About a week later I recieved an email from them with a new code. I tried it and it worked!

    Was it one that you had to redeem ingame, or was it an account upgrade code?

    also you have to watch.. sometimes they put in an approval code into the email that looks like the upgrade/actual code and its only 19 digits, but farther down your email theres another that is the actual code. re-look at your email carefully.
