    When SA first came out you got a bunch of tokens for race change and some other stuff for upgrading... do you still get that if you upgrade an account or is that over?

    Thanks for any info.

    OK thanks for the info. They might think about putting something on the Code Store upgrade page saying "Note, upgrade rewards are no longer available" or something. I did look there first.

    Wow! Your post gave me a bit of a scare. I upgraded a couple of accounts before the September 29th deadline, but had only actually used one of the promotional item codes because I wasn't quite sure where I wanted to claim the tokens. I had to log on quickly and use one of the other codes.

    Fortunately, it worked.

    I would not have been a happy camper if I'd gotten the message that the promotional idem codes were no longer valid.

    Perhaps Chrissay could include a Q&A in the FoF telling us how long the promotional item codes will remain good?
     
  5. Now, that's a great idea. I have the tokens (used the upgrade code already), but don't plan to use them any time soon. I hope both the tokens and codes are good forever.

    Promotional items typically remain good forever. You just can't PURCHASE them. Once you've purchased them, the code is in the system and you can redeem it any time. I remember YEARS and YEARS ago, they gave away free evil furniture deco promotion codes. That was in my mailbox until 2 weeks ago when I redeemed them.

    Since I'm still waiting for the item codes to come from my last SA upgrade order (EA store, useless as ever, have sent me a reply saying 'we're looking into them not being sent but need more time to investigate' - utter rubbish, they have the email they sent me and can clearly see the codes are not in there, 'investigating' this takes a few minutes, not three days....) I really want to know if those codes - should they ever actually arrive - are still valid.

    If not, there will be a UK small claims court demand for the money back.....

    Arrrr, lemme tell you a story 'bout the EA store. Upgraded first account back near release, no problems, codes sent to correct email, etc. On the 29th, upgraded second account using same account at EA store. Fergot password to the EA store account, did the recover password thing, and received password email at correct address. Place order at EA store, codes email does not arrive, me not too worried as still have that window open to copy codes. Later, me goes to check email at email address used by first account (upgraded 3 weeks ago), and there be the codes email! Methinks moral of story be: check fer codes email at all email addresses EA may have on file fer you (and hopefully still used by you)!

    For anyone that cares, I did the upgrade and got the promo code 5 min ago... I guess it's still working even though it was announced it would be ending. Go figure. :wall:

    I just placed an order for two upgrade codes as I couldn't afford the expansion till today (money I had put aside for UO upgrade got used for TamiFlu as I caught SwineFlu right after PAX).

    I wasn't worried about the promotional items, but I received codes to upgrade accounts and promotional codes today.

    So I can confirm promotion is supposed to be over, but UOGamecodes isn't realizing the date has passed.

    I won't be able to test to see if the codes sent are valid till after 5 p.m. today, but it does make me go "huh?"

    Was this from the EA Store or UOGamecodes?

    Always good advice - although in my case, since the EA mail confirming the order and containing the SA upgrade code came through, and only the item codes are missing, I'm reasonably confident they have the right address. They just don't know what they should be including in the message...

    I have promo codes from a couple of, heck 4 yrs ago & have used them as much as a month ago (worked fine). Last I knew as long as you had the code it was good to use. If memory serves me right I think Drac said this a few months back on another item.
