even ingame this issue seems to be persistent.
In a german community, people already contacted EA support.
After some answers that were wildly different /all stating, that they can't help) the general opinion basically was that this is a technical problem.
No idea if the discount will appear again, they seemed positive though.
Same issue here
Contacted the support two times today because of the issue, the first one said the discount was only available inside the game menu
Second one said it was a one time deal, if you click it and cancel you lose it. After questioning if it was not a time limited deal, he said that it's valid until 08/12.
After more questioning about the apparent random rules of the sale, he told me sometimes when people logout from origin and login again the discount may appear, what didn't work.
Finally he instructed me to try the logout/login again later, and gave me the 7 days trial for Origin access with the 10h trial for BFV as compensation.
