The saboteur is an awesome game!
Well...I just went ahead and picked up Shift 2, not bad for a 1 minute survey I suppose.... I tried the code again on Dragon Age II just to see if I could hit the jackpot as others have and it said 'Invalid Promo'.
I've been wanting ME3, but I have a policy that I don't pay more than 9.99 on games, and I haven't seen it on deep sale yet. I guess I'll wait until the holidays and watch closely.
Thanks for the tips as well as the heads up on these deals guys...
EDIT: My policy of 9.99 for video games...PAID for my gaming rig in two years. I'm just about ready to build another one...
Yeah, I actually picked that up during an Amazon deal super cheap, activated on Origin. I've only played a little bit of it, but I was pleased with it
I grabbed Crysis, even though i already have it. Whatevs
I don't care how closely I watch for new titles...and I've been gaming since the Wolfenstein/Duke days...I seem to miss a bunch of them.
This Saboteur is one I haven't seen. At first glance, I like the rustic world war II graphics. Although, they it appears as though they don't carry it on Steam.
I'll be watching for this one..gonna check out some YT vids.
I just got Bulletstorm with that code for free. AWESOMSAUCE!!!!!!
It's not working for me.
It keeps saying "Invalid promo code".
Every game I've tried so far.
sure. the code isn't for europe haha
I got mass effect 2 with it, I don't even need have a payment method on origin. Thanks, taco!
I just picked up Mass Effect 1 through Google Chrome, and The Saboteur through Origin client, both free and worked good, thanks guys... I hope this doesn't come back to haunt me. EA banning accounts in a rash decision isn't that far fetched, the company seems half retarded as is.
That thought made me decide to quit pursuing the Firefox method of getting a second use out of the code. I have BF3 and Crysis 1 and 2 Maximum Editions as well as Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Edition and Dragon Age 2 so I was not willing to risk it.
I probably should've said that the code is only US and Canada
brb, changing my localization settings.
EDIT: And connecting though a proxy...
I now have multiple Origin accounts....with free $20 games on them LOL
Bah. Too much trouble. And I failed to find a proxy that served my purposes. -_-
Still, thank you TacoTown, for sharing the code with us.
Alright, so here's what I did.
I'm in Canada and I used the code successfully on the same Origin account. I got Dragon Age 2 and Medal of Honor.
Now I get that this code is spreading around the Internet and the more people who do it, the less likely EA is going to blow their stack and ban a ton of people. I also get that EA can react to this with "RAWR IM EA BAN ALL RAWWWWR" which would be typical of a moronic corporation more concerned with using the stick rather than the carrot. What I'm looking for is just a quick way to legally ass-cover myself. Just a little "better safe than sorry" activity that I can use if I need to take some EA staff to court.
So does anyone know where exactly this survey is that people are supposed to fill out in order to get the code from an EA email? Figure the least I can do for snagging $40 of games is to give them some crowd-sourced info.
I think EA did something, Origin is less laggy and the code no longer works.
Too bad. I was gonna tell my friends. At least I got $40 worth of free games for me and $20 for my brother
Got Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 for free using the code.
Code still works, but I bet they will yank the games back later or try charging us based on this is an obvious exploit and probably in the TOS somewhere.
Chance to win a free game - The Ship (on steam)
I entered earlier tonight and received a code within a couple of hours so confirmed working, but the site is under heavy load, so might have to keep trying.
try proxpn, i use that to access FB and Hulu from my location, works pretty good for a free vpn
Update: Code is disabled by EA.
No need for proxy. Here is a working method:
1. Chrome incognito, don't be logged in
2. Add game to cart
3. Add promo code, game becomes free
4. Remove the game from the cart
5. Login to your main account
6. Re-add the game to your cart. On the game page it should say something like "Sale price 0.00$"
7. Finish the purchase

Many thanks to you as it works on non-US resident like me.
I just used Opera to grab Dead Space 2 for free, then using the Origin client to grab The Saboteur for free. Was hoping it'd work on War of the Roses, oh well. I'll gladly take these instead, lol.
because you can do it multiple times on 1 account, dont do it on an account where you have brought items. do it on a fake secondary account, so if you get banned, you dont loose the other games.
Can do it on Google chrome, using incognito mode (close all windows after purchase and repeat)
