Marvin is a pretty swell guy as well :)

Marvin:
Thank you for contacting Origin Help. My name is Marvin. How may I assist you today?
you:
hello
you:
I recently preordered Battlefield 3 and it appears you have a new promotion going on that includes Dead Space 2 for free for BF3 preorders (http://store.origin.com/store/ea/html/pbPage.bf3promo/). Is there any way I can also get Dead Space 2 for my preorder?
Marvin:
May I have your order number?
you:
sure, let me look it up
you:
****************
Marvin:
I add the game to your account now.
you:
thank you Marvin!
you:
I see it in my games section of origin
Marvin:
And you have a great weekend now.
you:
you as well

+1 for Origin CS. You'll have to wait days for Steam CS, just to get a "no" answer.
Going to have to agree. A buddy of mine had his Steam account hacked and Steam didn't even get in contact with him until about a week after he sent an email. Origin customer service being able to be contacted via live chat makes a big difference.

Steam could learn from that.

Steam having Live Chat would be immensely beneficial imo..

It said not found. Make sure in your privacy settings you are searchable by user name. I may have done something wrong, not sure.

Anyone know how this origins works? I've pre-ordered BF3 but it does not show up on my origins account.

I've talked to about 3-4 different Origin Chat Support.. they said its a known issue and its an internal problem that will need to be fixed.. all I need to do is wait.. or is that false?
I haven't heard about it. I'd like to double check on my end, though. If it already works then it's a moot point.

I pre-ordered on the 15th (before all of this free DS2 hulabaloo) and just CS chatted with "Rene". I gave her my order number and in a minute or three I had DS2 in my games in Origin. Sa-weet!

I already own DS2, as well as ME2 and MoH, so I haven't really been able to jump on a good pre-order deal. Perhaps they could credit me with another game of equal value? Worth a shot.

No DS2 for me cause I ordered it middle of last month, way before the promotion :(. I tied but was told no unless I wanted to cancel my pre-order and the reorder it again. I used my BD code so I'll pass on the free game I guess. Next time I pre-order a game I think I'll wait to see what promotions they are gonna have first.

I broke down and pre-ordered an hour ago, the dead space 2 offer is what pushed me over the edge.

Edit: Is it just me or does Origin d/l slower then steam?

Nice, I pre-ordered initially on Jul 21st but cancelled to re-order with a coupon... got ME2 free, gonna have to try for Dead Space 2 with this promotion now. Quite a deal at ~$48 for BF3, ME2, and probably DS2 :eek:.
