Is there a way to check the validity of a Diablo 3 CD code without redeeming it?

80/80

I already own Diablo 3, but found a used copy for less than a buck at a thrift shop. As the title says, can I somehow check if the code is valid a) without redeeming it and b) if I already own it?

Give it to me and I'll check it for you.

Does anyone have a serious reply?

It's less than a buck. Just buy it and take the risk.

Well you can try google. It is really not a question where you are likely to find a answer though.

I already bought it. I'm trying to figure out if the code is valid and I don't know how to check it...

I don't understand what you mean...

No, there's no way to check if the code's valid without redeeming it. Really though, unless it was still factory sealed or something, it's most definitely already used.

Something tells me that someone bought it and didn't know how to activate it. If I'm wrong, I'm out 90 cents plus tax...

Clues: a) A receipt was in the box for the game and a service plan (apparently for the game). People who purchase such plans are often foolish (perhaps more than I am for believing otherwise).
b) The CD itself was missing, although all other items (case with key, notepad, etc.) were present. Perhaps the owner kept the CD, thinking that it was what was needed and never got around to playing / activating.
c) Why give a useless box full of useless junk to a thrift store as opposed to tossing it? A real player of the game should know otherwise.
