Can you get online passes without buying new?

I don't want to pay 10 dollars. I know sometimes if they're feeling generous EA will send you a code if you tell them you lost yours. What about auction sites?

Two words:

Discounted New.

Hell, a lot of the time you can find Discounted New titles for LESS than what people are asking for the used copies.

Gamefly lets you do this if you buy their games used.

This. Seriously why go through the struggle of lying to get a code when you can just search around and buy the game new and at a discount?

Did it come with a manual?

Leave the manual under your pillow tonight & you just might wake up with an online pass in it's place.

Online Pass Fairy for the win.

Just be careful though, because you might have received more than just an Online Pass since you're dealing with a Fairy.

Well some people ask on forums if anyone has one they're not using.

Sometimes used games have codes people haven't used.

So yes. Yes you can.

sometimes i just comb the used games at gamestop and pick a few of the code tickets out of the boxes.

ive gotten lucky, hell, i managed to get 2 working codes for the signature edition of assassins creed revelations last black friday. 2 years after the game came out.

might be frowned upon, but ive been lucky enough with it.



but then again, im somewhat of a "any means necessary" kind of person

'Frowned upon?' I think the term you're looking for is illegal. You are a thief.
