    I am not tech savy enough to figure that out, but I see the full price and then directly under the slashed sale price.

    Id really like to pick up a code for 8.99 too but it is showing at the full price for me as well. Maybe it was accidentally put in the sale and they corrected the price.

    I guess there are more people playing UO than EA was prepared for:
    "No Response from Application Web Server"
    we seem to be overloading their server :p

    I have followed the direct link in this thread as well as navigating the site myself. Not sure what the issue is.

    I am thinking the squirrels are on a nut break and the sale price isn't showing. I don't know how to explain the differences in price that I see and others see. The only issue I had was after I applied the code and tried to accept the TOS I was hit with error pages. I was using Firefox, but I tried in IE and it worked right away.

    Are you using the sale banner? Or just searching for UO products? Maybe delete your browser cookies? Go all the way through the check out process and see what it wants to charge you? Threaten your computer with being launched out a second story window? Put more quarters in the slot on the right side of your monitor?

    Don't know what to tell you. You guys have all posted too negatively about the devs or EA management in the past I guess and now they are interested in your personal shopping habits. *grin* worked for me, twice.

    Haha I dont talk bad about them either. I submitted a question on the site. It says i should get a response within 24 hours. Here's to hoping I won't receive a response tomorrow that says sorry the sale is over.

    from the fine print on the EA site: "Limit one offer per person."

    I poked around for a bit, no sale prices. Everything I picked was full price and have to pay shipping, in all browsers I tried.

    I'm not wasting my time any more. You'd think that, having done these sales before, they could actually make them work properly.
     
  28. well this is lame:cursing:

    if it makes anyone feel better the edit acct page at uo herald is acting like its AoS rollout day.

    Yep- it would seem there is a LOT of activity on the accts page, got interrupted post log in as well.

    No problems here.

    I hit these EA sales pretty frequently, only thing I can offer is that you have to click the links from the sale pages otherwise, you will get the regular catalog price.

    EA Store (US) Online Store

    That is the direct email link to the sale.

    Showing $14.99 to me. Must be some kind of selective pricing going on.
     
  35. ok I followed FishinFool's link close to the bottom of this thread and now its loading up to show the 8.99 price.... maybe the site was just flooded or something.

    I bought one with my EA account and then a second with a different e-mail... but you didn't hear that from me ;)

    Ironically, I finally caved and bought my first upgrade yesterday... must be karma or something. 2/3 ain't bad!

    I think its a Kroger kinda thing. If they wanna advertise a great price on 2 liter bottles or brisket or whatever and tell me I can only have one or two with every $25 dollar purchase, I will plan that crap out and get my $200 worth of essentials and enough brisket for the summer at the same time in eight trips. Makes no difference to me.

    I just closed the browser and started all over again.

    I have tried every single link in this thread and all I get is the 14.99 offer. Any ideas? This is kind of strange if you ask me.

    You have to browse the sale list and find it on there and click that link. Otherwise it shows the non-sale price.

    1) Click: http://eastore.ea.com/store/ea/Cont...tore0180&om_u=2301755755&om_i=_BNumN0B8arn_L5
    2) Click big yellow "Shop Sale" button
    3) Click the "Product Name" column link to sort names by A-Z
    4) Click "Product name" column link again to sort by Z-A
    5) You now see the 2 UO items on sale, click either to be taken to their sale page

    Link worked for me. Clicked on the sale banner, logged into the site, typed Ultima Online in the search box and pressed Enter, UO titles displayed with the MSRP and discount prices, placed SA and HS in the cart, processed and printed out my receipt. No issues.

    The sale was today only (30 minutes left PDT), and US only (not NA, Canada, Mexico, etc. excluded).

    Yes Mesanna... I finally caved, broke down and bought SA without a box. :p

    It is very hard for me to imagine why EA would hold a sale and then hide it from us, relying upon our fellow players to post links in a forum which only a fraction of UO players visit.

    Then again it is also hard for me to imagine why EA would consistently underestimate how much bandwidth it'll take to sell a UO expansion or booster successfully; at some point wouldn't they realize UO still has a viable player base and appropriate more bandwidth so we could spend our money on them more successfully.

    And, for that matter, it is also hard for me to imagine why they would, given the fact that we obviously still have a viable player base, they wouldn't spend some cash to keep us here and keep our money flowing to them.

    Oh well.
