    Lastnight a friend of mine bought me a house and bank storage upgrade code from the Origin store.... he gave me the code. I go into accounts to enter the code and get a message code will not work on this account.... i got him to try the code on his account and same message.

    Thinking it might be an issue with him being in the US and im in Australia.
    I was unable to buy the code from australia cause it dont show up in the list, and it wont let me view the US site :(

    Has anyone else had issues with codes??

    The upgrade code should have appeared on the store page when he made the purchase, and again on the e-mail he received from the purchase. I noticed once that the codes were not the same and that (for me) the code from the e-mail worked where the code from the store webpage did not. Hope you find the answer soon.

    Account Management has been down all day today, so maybe it has something to do with that. According to the announcement it was anticipated to be up 4 1/2 hours ago, so maybe they are having more issues. I would try again after the account management is back up. I purchased codes for one of my accounts to finally upgrade it to SA and HS, but I wanted to wait until the maintenance was back up, just in case of errors.

    Have you tried to apply the code leaving off the 1st char? Maybe it was some type of computer glitch?

    i would recommend for anyone wanting to buy storage upgrade codes to no to buy, it look as if the code generator is generating invalid codes.
