How do I redeem my code from gamestop?

#1gamefreek4444Posted 2/27/2010 10:50:25 AM
I just received the email today, and its a 16 digit code, with 4 letters/numbers in 4 different columns.
when i try "redeem code" under the marketplace tab, (under the guide button menu) it only allows me to input 25 digit codes with 5 letters/numbers per column. the space button cannot be used, and the dash button cannot be used.
am I doing something wrong??? (obviously I am) How do I input the code?

Probably the code for the game's in-game store...

here's the email-
Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for pre-ordering Battlefield: Bad Company 2 from GameStop. To gain early access to the Squad Rush multiplayer mode and AKS-74U Assault Rifle, please follow the instructions below.

Log In to your Xbox Live Gold Membership account.
1: From the start menu from the game, select “Store”.
2: Select the “Enter Code” button.
3: Enter the code exactly as it appears bellow, then select “Done”.
and then it says the code.
there is no "store" there is only a marketplace
there is no "enter code" there is a "redeem code"
I cant enter it exactly as it appears, because it doesn't let me. (it puts in the dashes for me)

How'd you get an email? They never asked for my email. Only my phone number. I figured the code would come on a slip that came with the game like MW2 and other games that had this did?

Also, it tells you you have to go on the start menu of the GAME. Not dashboard, GAME. There's an ingame marketplace kind of like GTA's. Just wait till Tuesday.

He most likely preordered online. I did and also recieved my code in email. I think in-store preorders will indeed get the slip when they pick the game up.

@TC; like someone mentioned, you enter the code at the in-game store, not the dashboard area.

I got the same problem. the code i got on my receipt is too long and won't fit in the playstation network redeem code box.
