      Cards work, all stars taken off due to EA greed

      So, I rated this 2 stars because the cards work (scratch the stuff off, enter the key, have money on account), and it has nothing to do with Best Buy or anything, but Electronic Arts (EA), which runs Origin, is a sorry, low-down company... I bought a $60 card, and easily added it to my EA/Origin account. Here's my issue (and the more I think about it, the more I want to rate this product 1 star)... I've used Steam for years if I'm buying a computer game. Steam also has pre-paid cards like this, in several different denominations. Most brand new AAA title games cost $59.99 (a few dollars over $60 after tax). On Steam, you can put a (for example) $50 card on your account, and if you want a $60+ game, when you check out you can apply that $50 to the total, and pay the remainder with a credit card or PayPal, or whatever. Simple. Until I dealt with this scenario with EA/Origin, I couldn't imagine any company doing it differently. Well, that thought was wrong. A game came out recently on Origin that I'd like to have. It's an EA game, so it hasn't made it to Steam yet. It's a new, major franchise game, so it currently costs $59.99 plus tax. So I grabbed a $60 Origin card and planned on getting the game from Origin as soon as I got back home. After adding the $60 to my account, I selected the game, and went to check out. Obviously I knew I'd have to still pay a few dollars on top of that to cover tax. The problem is that EA is such a greedy, sorry company, my plan of buying the game like that (like you'd buy anything ANYWHERE ELSE if you had a gift card to apply to the total) didn't work. If you buy a game from EA on Origin, and you use a pre-existing balance on your account (like you have when you add one of these cards to your account) to make a purchase, that's all you can use. To make it more clear, I put the $60 card on my account, tried to buy the game (which was approx. $62 after tax) by applying the $60, and then paying the balance with my already-on-file credit card... NOPE! I couldn't do it like that. On Origin, you can't use a gift card unless the card covers the ENTIRE amount of what you're buying. Since I was $2 short, my options were to just leave the $60 in my account and pay for the whole game with my credit card, or go buy another Origin card to add to my account, so the entire price would be covered by my account balance. This is a completely blatant and underhanded way to squeeze their customers out of every dollar they can. Think about it... they sell $60 cards (and a couple of other amounts) KNOWING that after tax their $59.99 games will cost just over $60. Then they won't let you use your gift card/account balance in conjunction with another form of payment, unlike literally every other company, online or not, that I can think of. It's an extremely pathetic tactic that I hope somehow costs them drastically in the long run. So now I sit, about 2 months after I bought the $60 card, and I still don't have the game I got it for. I've spent plenty of money on Steam since then, but not a single penny on Origin. I'm waiting on the price to drop on that game, then I'll buy it with my balance. I'll never add another card to Origin though, and honestly, this has turned me off so much toward EA, I'll avoid them as much as possible from now on. IF AN EA EXEC, OR WHATEVER, HAPPENS TO SOMEHOW SEE THIS... THAT "POLICY" I DESCRIBED ABOVE WILL COST YOU. EVEN IF I'M THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD THAT CARES, I'M ALREADY WAITING TO BUY THAT GAME FOR LESS, INSTEAD OF THE $60+ I WAS GOING TO SPEND, AND I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT THE RANDOM GAMES I'VE BOUGHT IN THE PAST WITH THE 'EA' LOGO ON IT WILL GET PASSED BY FOR SOMETHING ELSE FROM NOW ON. I'VE ALWAYS SEEN PEOPLE SAYING EA IS GREEDY AND WORTHLESS, AND I ALWAYS ASSUMED IT WAS JUST TYPICAL HATERS. CONGRATS THOUGH EA, YOU JUST PROVED THEM RIGHT.

      Horrible Experience

      Do not buy this product and expect it to work to down load sims games. I bought for my daughter for her birthday. Was told by bestbuy she could use this to buy expansion packs. She cannot. I called EA and they sent me to a third party site where I could buy the game. One of those sites is Best Buy where I bought the card. So now I have a 60 dollar EA card that my daughter can’t use to buy expansion packs. I have not yet had a chance to try to resolve this with Best Buy but I’m not optimistic I will get anywhere. We used to buy the specific expansion packs direct but this new EA card is supposed to be the new way you purchase these.

      EA has not changed their business practices

      Looks like all the horror stories of pre-ordering games and using the EA Wallet are true. I was assured by an EA Advisor that the EA Wallet would be used before any credit card would be charged. There is an FAQ that says exactly what the Advisor said, so I felt okay about making this purchase. Well the games has been released and my credit card was charged the full amount. Since these Cards only come in a $60 and $20 flavor it appears as if you can never have a zero balance because if the purchase is over you Wallet amount it will ask for a credit card. I contacted support again and they basically told me to go take a hike.

      Very easy to load and maybe sometime last year or this year EA changed their policy because I was able to use this card and for something that cost more than $20 on Origin and it let me pay the difference with a credit card. Most of the bad reviews were saying it doesn't allow you to pay the difference with a credit card but it seems that problem has been resolved. This worked out well for me.

      This game card works with EA's Origin game service. You can use it to load credits up in your Origin wallet for use in purchasing a game or downloadable content (DLC). I used mine for a couple of DLC packs and a copy of Wing Commander. Basically it is like getting a Steam card, except this is for EA's Origin service instead. I like having this option in addition to just using a credit card. A good way to budget one's self.

      Had to get several people involved and it took way too long , but finally someone went to the back and found a stack of these cards after I had hunted all over the store after being told they were in several different places. Shouldn't have been that big of an ordeal. But at least I got it for my grand daughter and she was happy with it.

      EA gift card versus Sims 4 expansion pack

      We had some difficulty purchasing the Sims 4 expansion pack so we purchased an EA gift card. Once home realized there was tax and made it difficult to use our PayPal account for balance, we had to load an actual credit card. Just took much longer than anticipated and the Sims 4 card would have eleaveated that.

      Allowed Me To Buy Games From The EA Origin Store

      Back in my day, we used to buy our PC games direct from the store in boxes. Nowadays, everything is downloaded through online stores like Origin and Steam. That usually means not being able to pay cash (i.e. requiring a credit or debit card). This card allows you to use cash to buy this card at Best Buy, then enter the card information into Origin so that you can download the game through Origin.
