    6 hours is pretty long. I don't even wait for the email. I just copy and paste from the final page after checking out.

    I always get my codes on that page.

    I got a code from the store last night in about a minute after I purchased it. My CC sends me a separate confirmation of the charge authorization and the two emails are both tagged with the exact same time of receipt.

    I suspect PayPal may have something to do with the time delay. Did you transfer out of your Paypal account balance, your bank account, debit card, or pay via a credit card using PayPal?

    I get a delay in getting the code when I buy more than 3 at a time. It usually comes within 24 hours.

    If Ipay with either PayPal or via bank transfer I receive the codes instantly.
    So maybe it was nothing more then a fluke
