    maybe I can? well the question is that I retrieved an an old acct that I thought was lost about 4 months ago.That acct is about 60 months old, But before that about 8 months ago I started a new acct. I bought the 9th anniversary at a Game Stop and started playing again. But being that I got the old acct back with char's already built up I just stopped playing the new acct. I had to upgrade the old acct to Mondain Legend. In order to transfer the house and other things the new acct had. So my question is? if I close out the newest acct that I used the 9th anniversary on can I now use that code on my old acct to upgrade it to the 9th anniversary?? You know just like if someone quit playing UO and closed out there acct and then sold the 9th anniversary game at a yard sale and then the person who then bought it wanted to play the game could they use the code that came with that game even though it was used once on an acct then closed out?? Man after all that I think I'm confused.....not really I hope someone can give me an answer though...

    You should be able to use the upgrade code that came with the box as long as it hasn't been used yet.
    When you buy a box you get both a new account code and an upgrade code. You can use both.

    Yet another reason I miss seeing boxes on the store shelves.
     
  3. No, you cannot re-use the code, even if you're the same person. You'll have to purchase another 9th Anniversary copy, or suchlike. Sorry!

    (after all, that is one of the ways that UO can keep generating income for them...so just consider it as supporting Sosaria :)

    EDIT: Doh-eth! Unless it's as Flutter thought, and you've only used the new account code so far...then yes, you can certainly still use the upgrade code on your older account. You just cannot RE-use a code on another account, once you've redeemed it.

    Thanks for the answers folks I didn't think i would be able to us it.. well the good news is that I drive a truck across this wonderful country and with that I can stop at a lot of the Game Stops to find another copy of the 9th anniversary.. :D

    I think you can also go on their website and it will give you a list of stores that have that item in stock given a certain radius. I was looking for a box when I started another account and found one store that was close by and a couple stores listed that were about 50 miles away. The only problem was that the store had opened the box and stored the CD behind the counter, but I didn't see the manual that would have contained the code needed. Plus I didn't trust the store enough to buy the box only to find out someone in the store had already used all to codes way back when to get the items.

    Hello Dor,

    I wondered if you were still around. Nice to see you.

    It's great to see your name, too! By the way...if you still happen to have the same account/character that you did years ago...you'll find that you're still friended to the Guesthouse, methinks :)
