    I found a pretty good deal on the BC2: Vietnam xpac.

    If you sign up for recyclebank.com and do some quick (3 minutes online) things you can get enough points for a $10 off EA store coupon. I already had Vietnam (doh!!) so I just got Mirror's Edge for free.

    Here are the step by step instructions:

    • create account at recyclebank.com
      Under "Earn Points"
    • Sign up for eBay's Green Team for 50 points
    • Enter code: 031604014704 with partner: Nature Made for 10 points 5x times
    • Enter code: TakeSmallSteps with partner: Marcal for 15 points
    • Take Miller Coors Quiz for 30 points (answers are C for every quiz)
    • Take Naked Juice Quiz for 30 points
    • Take P&G Quiz for another 30

    You should now have ~225 points. Now go redeem 175 points for an EA coupon for $10 off a PC game. Bam!! BC2 Vietnam for $5

    After I get the access code for game, can it be used in steam version or not?

    I definitely do not trust this. Paying $10 more rather than gambling seems fair enough to me

    Last time I used one of these types of discounted websites my account was banned 1 month later.

    Buy it from reputable sources, guys. These discounted codes are nothing more than key generators. It may take a day or a year, but they will catch you.

    How? In the future, when someone purchases a legitimate copy of the game it may have the same code as the one generated, which will then lead to an investigation and finally leading to an account ban.

    Not saying this site is bad - Just be VERY careful, b/c you don't want hundreds (if not thousands) of hours lost later down the road.

    Worked for me, got my code and $5.00 game.

    The code does not work in Steam from the "add game" thing but I need to test a few things, like seeing if you enter it in the game client itself. Also I just made the purchase it may take a bit for the code to work.

    I have the game on EA anyways so I was pretty safe to give this a try.

    The site is only giving you coupon codes for the EA Store. If this were truly a scam, then I don't think EA's own store would accept these coupon codes.

    Vietnam codes are entered within the game menu screen, just hit the Vietnam button in the middle left of the screen and punch in your unlock code from EA.

    Yeah your not getting the unlock code your getting a code to purchase the game. Coupon codes are all over the net all the time I dont think there is any risk other than spam mail.

    This however looks pretty legitimate (the site)

    Edit: got it working. No time to play now have to work soon. Try to get some game time tomorrow if I am lucky.
