Looking at the addresses:

"en_SG" = Singapore and "en_US" = United States
 
According to Google:

"20 US dollars = 24.4860 Singapore dollars"

My guess is that the $25 seen was actually in SIngapore dollars and not US dollars.

Just curious do Bioware points or the amount of points required to purchase dlc ever go on sale? I am looking to get some of the me3 dlc, but I don't have a lot of $$ to spend. I know the me3 dlc on the 360 goes on sale often, but im a PC gamer. Thanks for any tips!

just buy the points via paypal on the bioware website in the smaller denominations untill you have enough points totaled up ot purchase the dlc's, on pc nothing ever has a sale price except on origin last month when everything was on sale

I just bought points and they charged me but said the order was in review. They charge me and take my freaking money and I don't get the product? This is a serious problem and many purchases went through, while two did not. Not to mention last year Case: 07882324 also was never resolved. about 80 dollars worth of points I paid for, but never received. Can anyone help at Origin?

It´s been several days since I paid for over 6000 Bioware Points, and the site still says I have zero. Is there any way to contact EA so they can confirm that I paid? Should I contact EA or Bioware?

I have the same problem now. Bought 1200 points via paypal, no points, can't buy anything and my card was charged (at least the funds were allocated). I demand quick reaction.

Done. Now I wonder if it was someone's quick reaction or there was just some delay while processing my order. Either way it shoul not happen.

There usually is a delay between buying the points, especially via the BioWare website and getting them. No one here deals with account related issues, this is user-to-user support in case you didn't notice. For account related issues you'll have to contact official EA support: https://help.ea.com/
