Is EA so rich they don't want my money? (aka broken gamecodes)

    I am trying to upgrade two accounts to 7th char/bank slot and purchase two transfer tokens.

    First, they only let you buy them one at a time but whatever(seems like stupid business practice):coco:

    I get my first account upgrade and transfer last night no hitch.

    This morning, I try to buy another pair and I get the ever famous "we're sorry, you can only buy.... every 30 days" WTF :rolleyes:

    So I try another 4 times with the same results while it won't let me change which account.

    Last attempt is with one of my other accounts after installing a new browser since I couldn't clear out the account stuff.:coco::coco: All that work and I get the same ******** result.

    What can I do to fix this issue? Seems like I'm better off going with a broker at this point... at least I'm almost guaranteed something working:coco:

    Someone getting your card number and draining it would be worse.

    Online Credit Card fraud is a huge issue and they are trying to make sure they don't get hammered. I don't blame them.

    True, credit card fraud can be an issue. OTOH, using two separate cards under two different account and getting the same error is :coco:

    I can see limiting some of the online codes... but once every 30 days is a bit excessive. On the otherhand, this is EA we are talking about... where excessive is always the right solution :rolleyes:

    Ah well, guess I got take my money to a broker and support the people who have screwed up the game:eek:

    Makes me glad I've closed two accounts. Doubt I'll have an account by the end of the year.
