Check Your Email For a Surprise Discount Code For Origin


Origin is doing something cool for Halloween in lieu of a Halloween sale. They’re sending out unique promo codes to everybody with an Origin account that will give them some unknown discount, either 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% or even 100% off. You don’t find out what the discount is until you apply the code to your cart, but you do get to look before buying.

The code works on everything in the store aside from pre-orders and games released in the past month, so, sorry, no Battlefield 3.

The cynic in you is probably saying that most everybody will only get 10% off codes, but I don’t think that’s the case; my code was good for 30%. I picked up Command & Conquer 4 since that game came out when I didn’t have a PC capable of running it. Stop booing me.

Oh, and if you don’t have an Origin account you can still take advantage of this deal by signing up now. The folks in the CAG forums are posting their codes for your enjoyment.

hmmm, not seeing a discount email. Maybe I’m …uh…unsubscribed?
I’ve never been impressed with the Origin Store sales/titles anyway.
The very few titles (less than a handful)that are tied to my Origin account were found and bought elsewhere way cheaper.

One piece of news that seemed to be overlooked here this week.

Origin Expands to Offer Games from Major Publishers
Warner Bros., THQ and Capcom Bringing Top Titles to EA’s Direct Download Platform

I’m guessing that those other publishers games will still sell more and cheaper at other Digital Distributors like, Steam, Direct 2 Drive, Amazon etc. then they will with Origin.

Screw EA and their Origicrud software! They ain’t getting me suckered in. I’ll stick with a company that gives a darn – Valve. Btw… I still think that BF3 will be way better than MW3, I just am starting to hate EA as much as Activision!

@Anthony

Are you serious? Steam’s support is 10x worse than EAs. Most of Steam’s support are a bunch of forum commandos who can’t do anything.

Don’t believe them.I received a coupon e-mail from EA for a 40% discount on selected games at “checkout”by entering a code.Never received the discount…paid full price…never received answer back from EA when I wrote to complain multiple times.This was also related to Origin ad.EA will never receive another dollar of my hard earned money.

Mmm so far not a thing in my e-mail, not even in my junk. Oh well, can’t expect EA to do anything right really.

Why intous5….WHY TOUCH SCREEN (I’m still going to save my money for intous4)Yishun has the most generous couple that dedicate their time and money to save stray cats around yishun. They paid for toby’s operations.
