Bad Company 2 20 bucks. Or any EA game above 39.95 $20 off

Read full post before commenting

BF:BC2 for $39.95
Coupon PAXEAST842 for $20 off (works on anything $40 on ea store)

$39.95 - $20 = $19.95

Incredible price.


Important: Make sure you back up the cached files (the installer files) EA won't let you download a game 1 year after purchase according to the sales terms. I can still download BF2/BF2142 that I bought years ago, but policy may have changed.

It should be something like c:/user/programdata/electronicsarts/eadm/cache, but I'm not on my home PC. There should be a folder in there related to BF:BC2, open it, and see what's in there. Hopefully there's a setup.exe or something, if so, you can just burn that entire folder to a DVD (or flash drive, or whatever) and have it.

NOTE: I am aware that $40 $39.95, but the game is $49.95 - $10 sale - $20 promo so it takes the coupon anyway, I assume because the game is $49.95 normally.

NOTE #2: I have no idea when the coupon ends. Obviously, it's from the PAX event, and I don't know the time it ends. If anybody knows, speak up. Buy now if you're going to - I don't think we're going to see $20 for BFBC2 again at least for a few months, if that.


This coupon code will work with anything in the store, including physical media:

Could also get hard copy of BFBC2 for $48.99 - $20 = $28.99, if you need the physical media.

Does not work if multiple games are in basket. Mass effect 2 is $17.54 if you find something else to add to your cart that's $2.40
Damn good deal!!!!!!!!!
(Note: There's a couple things for $5 on there I believe, so that would come out to ~$22.50 for ME2 including $5 fluff)


Canada is *possible*, but reports are mixed:

Thanks a lot, got my copy of Bad Company 2. Unfortunately the software download is no longer $10 off, so my total came to $31, but still a really good deal.
