Battlefield 3 "On the House" game not activated; need product key

[ Edited ]
★★ Novice

I downloaded Battlefield 3 "On the House" for free, and it is in my Origin game library. However, when I go to click PLAY, I get the message "WE COULD NOT ACTIVATE BATTLEFIELD 3 ON THIS COMPUTER USING THE ORIGIN ACCOUND YOU PROVIDED. PLEASE LOCATE YOUR PRODUCT KEY TO ACTIVATE THE GAME USING YOUR ORIGIN ACCOUNT". So naturally, I click on BF3, and then hit the little i, and copy and paste the product key into the box. But, THEN I get the message that the product key is invalid! Way to go EA, you really did a great job with your new "On the House" promotions. Maybe next time, it would be better if THE EFFING THING ACTUALLY WORKED!!!!! 

 

 

EA PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS ISSUE AND HAVE IT FIXED ASAP. NOT YOUR USUAL. GET. IT. FIXED. NOW.

please Confusedmileyhappy:

 

***UPDATE: JUNE 06 2014***

 

The problem is still persistent and has NOT been fixed. One of the EA mods only marked this post as solved to bring attention that they "Are still working on fixing the problem". But knowing EA, this could take a VERY long time to be fixed. Please keep commenting and help get this post noticed a lot more so we can show EA and Origin that many people have this problem, and that it is a SEVERE one. Thank you.

First FPS AAA game I get on pc and it won't activate.
Will they send a key code to our emails,or is this really a problem of their own?
