    How do you do it? Does anyone know? The last time I tried it, I upped the quantity to 2 games codes and the store only wound up sending me one, despite my having paid for two. I've tried adding the 30 day game time code more than once to my cart, but I've had no luck with it. I remember someone posting here saying it could be done, but I can't seem to find that discussion anymore.

    My husband and I have never been able to purchase more than 1 of anything in the store. We have to make multiple purchases, which often times flags our credit card, which becomes a pain in the rear.

    Exactly, that's why I'm hoping someone has found some working way to purchase multiple gametimes. My card gets flagged too if I try and subscribe to multiple accounts via account management.

    Nope. There is no way, unless you go to best buy and buy gametime there.

    That is what we did this week. Got tired of cards getting flagged.

    Best buy sells UO Game Codes? This might be my solution. Thanks Kayhynn.

    You can buy EA gametime cards, which is the equivalent. At least 6 months ago you could. I'm planning to start doing this myself.

    This is why I pay 6 months at a time having each account spaced to a one every two weeks.

    There is still (tried last in December) this bug in store posted here a year or so ago, which allows you to buy multiple Game time codes, circumventing this stupid limit.
    Add a GTC to basket while not logged in.
    Login to store.
    Check basket.
    Log off
    Add GTC to basket.
    Login to store.
    Check basket.
    Rinse and repeat as often as needed.

    They sell the EA/Origin Game Cards. We purchased them this weekend from Best Buy. They sell them in $20 and $60 cards, or at least the few Best Buy's that we have near here do.

    Then we load those and purchase gametime from the origin store.

    Thanks again Olahorand. I just bought two game codes using this method and it worked perfectly. If there are any mods reading this thread, it might be a good idea to make a sticky thread with this information.

    Pay for game time code through your paypal account that way your card does not get flagged,

    How did we want to buy them? All together. How did we buy them? One at a time.
