New (unique) codes are out if you filled out a survey:

New code incoming, will not be exploitable (maybe, lol)

http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/9047546.page

Hi everyone,

Last week, we emailed some Origin users in North America asking them to participate in an online survey, and offered a promo code for $20 off their next Origin purchase in return for completing the survey. Unfortunately, due to some misuses of the promo code, we had to discontinue its use early before its stated expiration date.

We wanted to clear up the confusion: all users that completed the survey will receive an email soon (in the next 1-2 days) which will contain a new code for $20 off a purchase of any EA game on Origin priced $19.99 or above.

Thank you again to all users that took the time to provide us with feedback about Origin.

Hi everyone,

The coupon code is now expired; we’ll honor all sales made with the coupon code over the weekend and hope fans enjoy their games.

Thanks,
Sam "QforQ" Houston

Sam hopes you enjoy your games. Have fun guys!

I think all origin people get that code. I just got one for taking a 5 question survey for them. Took 30 seconds.

Is the EURO 2012 DLC either bundled with FIFA 12 or available separately? I don't see it listed.

So that code is for $20 off a purchase with regular price of $19.99 or more and therefore doesn't conflict with the SD sale price?

Yeah, I got the same thing about an hour ago. Still deciding what to use it on. At least I got quite a few days to figure it out.

I didn't know that everyone got the exact same code, though. Hah.

It doesn't look like the Slickdeals promo and this code actually work together. Using the code will take $20 off the original price, but it only offers the lower of the two deals. I tried it with Amalur, but it kept offering me the $16 price. Using it on the Origin client with the base price brought it down to $19.99, so I know the code works with it. I thought I was about to get it for free, but oh well.

Still, this is freaking sweet. Thanks. There has to be some game on there that I know I both don't have and can run on my laptop.

Leaning towards Bullet Storm. Any other games I should be aware of first? And how are some of you getting more than one? Isn't it a one time offer?

You know...the title of the thread says "PC," but I don't see anything that says otherwise. At least not when I get it from that survey. It does mention it on that link that it's PC only, though. Can anyone confirm? If it's PC digital only, then I guess I'll just get something for that.

I tried using it on Dead Space 2 for 360 earlier but it didn't work.
