Is it that hard to bill me on the same day every month?

    I can't help but think that EA has been using some very deceptive billing. I know they say that they might pre-authorize your card ahead of time but i think it's :lame: that they just bill your card whenever they feel like it and i never know when it's coming. Is there some way to figure out when they are going to bill me? This month they billed me 2x (5th and 30th).

    Game time is for 30 days. Not every month is 30 days long so the date will slowly change over time.
     
  3. Never had that problem. 8 accts and all get billed roughly on the same date. Give or take weekends and holidays.

    I just noticed that myself.. Its always a couple of days earlier every month. I opened a closed account on the 22nd of March. They billed me April 20th. In June they billed me on the 18th, but they sent in the request to have the funds withdrawn on the 16th. If they keep doing this.. They will eventually get an extra payment from me.
    I started watching ever since people from another EA game started complaining. I never really noticed before then..

    I made this post a while back on same topic.

    It aggrivates me to no end, that I should expect UO should come out on or about the 25th, and it comes out on the 11th or 12th....I dont know why it bugs me, but it does.:lame:
     
  6. Well it's myself, my significant other and 2 kids that play. 8 accounts for one family not too bad.

    Thats exactly what i was thinking Packrat. I have to check and see if they have managed to take 7 months of payments for 6 months of service. I really was starting to think it was just me because i must of missed the other post about it.

    JC gave me an idea though, i may have to switch over to using gametime codes for the last couple of months because i am trying to see this event to the end and then im going on a vacation from UO.

    12 months X 30 days = 360 days. Buth there are 365 days in a year. 30 days divided by 5 = 6. So every 6 years you paid an extra $12.99 There should be a special vet reward for 6 years, and again at 12 years of account age. :beer:
