The Sims 3 Registration Code "Invalid"

I bought the Sims 3 Pets and Diesel Stuff via the Origin store as PC downloads.  I received the confirmation email containing the serial codes, but when I enter them on the Sims 3 website registration page, it says the codes are "invalid".  I just bought the games less than 24 hours ago, so do I need to wait 24 hours or longer, or is there something wrong with the serial codes?

Re: The Sims 3 Registration Code "Invalid"

This happened to me, too. When I contacted Customer Service by phone they had me send screenshots of the colde and then gave me a new code. I dohope they help you. I think Pets is worth the problems it may create. I would make sure to get a good graphics card for Pets. Graphics cards can make the difference between a fluffy or non-fluffy pet.

 

Good luck finding your unicorn! mileyhappy:

Why indeed? It is like this, not everybody knows everything and we should approach queries in a manner so as not to belittle the person asking the question or offering suggestions.

 

I do not know why we do not need to register Stuff Packs. I don't recall reading that anywhere. Perhaps you could kindly explain that to me.

 

Anyway, we should not assume something is common knowledge because we know it. That doesn't mean that everybody knows it. mileyhappy:

Re: The Sims 3 Registration Code "Invalid"

Your correct yes. Well stuff packs only being "stuff" after all, Maybe it's because they don't have any additional gameplay as such.

Thank you, Jim.

 

Really, I do have basic questions that most people who play games already know. Then, I have curious questions other people don't even think of.

 

I am the person who has the dumb questions, but is very grateful to get an answer. mileyhappy:

 

So, thank you, because I was wondering why Stuff Packs did not have to be registered. mileyhappy:

 

I have never been able to curtail my curiosity. I am really working on that, though.:womanhappy:
