I know that people are often annoyed with EA and it’s customer service, but I have to say that I love them. I’ve had two issues that required me to make contact with EA. The first happened while I was still playing the Kendricks. I ended up with such a glitch that I decided to uninstall everything and start over. I followed all of the directions but still couldn’t play the game, so I called and wrote to EA. I followed everything they said but my game still didn’t work. I didn’t get it to work until I sort of stumbled upon my own half-assed solution. But, the nice thing about EA was that they felt so badly that they hadn’t helped, they gave me a PROMO code for $20 toward my next expansion. That’s how I got Late Night.
Today I found out that they are giving away Outdoor Living if you pre-order Generations. Well, I’ve already done so. So, I thought, what the hell, I’ll call and see if they’ll credit it the game to me. WELL! Not only did I get the credit, but because they had to change my order to a digital download (I ordered a physical copy), they decided to also give me the other stuff pack I don’t have, Fast Lane. I was floored!
And, the guy was so nice to me on the phone, he also gave me a copy of Sims Medieval! Can you believe it? But it gets better! He also gave me another PROMO code to get my next purchase at the EA store for $20 cheaper. I plan to use it on the October Expansion, Unleashed. (BTW, all of these are digital downloads, but who cares? That’s why I have the EADM, right?)
I am having a fabulous day, let me tell you! Not that I’m telling you all to call EA if you already pre-ordered Generations and request the free copy of Outdoor Living, but if you don’t already have it, I think you should. Maybe the gentleman I spoke to was just in a generous mood, but if you don’t already have Outdoor Living, I think you shouldn’t hesitate to call them. The least that could happen is that you also get the copy of Outdoor Living that they are offering on the Sims 3 website.
Man what a Saturday. I’m hoping that I get the next Fields update up tomorrow…Monday at the latest. Everyone have a great Saturday, too.
