    UO codes are on sale at EA Origin store. I think its a flat %30 discount on all items. Stockpile stuff while it lasts. ;)

    Maybe it is a regional promotion. I see a thirty percent flat discount on everything. Perhaps those from Europa could make use of it. :) In that case, use of VPN could make it available to you as well.

    I decided to post more details about it. The promotion is called Holiday Sale and will last until 12th of January. Every item is subject to discount "only once".

    Official EA text below. Sorry about wall of text, I suppose EA likes to yell at customers. :pancakes:

    It's the Holiday Sale. It doesn't show in current deals. I received 30 percent discount on my first purchase, then subscribed Origin Access and percentace raised to %37. I tested this with 1 month code and it worked. So I plan on stocking up a few 6-month codes and some 5000 pt sovereign packages.

    That's a great value isn't it. I wonder if this happens every year. ;)

    Hmmm it's all a bit odd, when I first got to the site there was no sale and everything was in dollars not pounds. I refreshed the page and it all changed to pounds and everything had 30% off. I am tempted by the 6 month game-time code, but my account is paid up until March 16th already. I wouldn't be surprised if it's a mistake and the whole thing vanishes within a few hours, I've never seen anything UO on sale at Origin deliberately.

    Holiday Sale does not work in the US. Must be a European thing

    Any Origin sale for UO is a running joke.

    You dare not speak publicly about it because they take it down faster than you can blink.

    I've been waiting in sale to grab a few things but I don't expect this to happen unless it's an error on their part.

    Until then I'll just hold onto my money since they don't seem to want it.

    Well, this is a shame really. I even got Origin Access and then my credit card gave an error. By the time I returned, UO items were purged from Holiday Sale. I guess I will hold onto my money just like Oreogl. :(

    Does anybody else get the feeling that, unfortunately, UO is "on its last leg"?

    I really hope it's not, but it just seems to me that more and more "stuff" isn't working as it should, and doesn't get "fixed". :(

    Well, with the $ almost being on par with the €, I guess US players could always save a fair 25% if they only got access to the EU store. IIRC its $60 in the US while only 46€ over here. I mean I could resell those for $55 and still make a profit ;) I also wonder if there are regions where it is even cheaper.

    Usually when there is a sale on Origin, UO items are mysteriously out of stock.
