Bestbuy Preorder Key In Use ?!
 
I picked up a preordered star trek online box about 25 mins ago, get home register to the site , make my account everything is going smooth, go to enter my fresh beta key from the card in the box... and get the ..'this key is already in use.....

What kind of nonsence is this ? im totally annoyed.


now what ?

Was the code on the outside of the box, or inside?

Most retailers with codes like this are rife with people who will nick the codes for themselves or friends if it's not in a sealed package.

I'd give Tech Support a heads up to see if they can give you a hand. If it turns out the code is invalid (and was on the outside of the package) i'd take a copy of the email from Cryptic and go have words with Best Buy.

I got one from Target in a sealed box and it keeps saying that the key had been used too :confused:

My Bestbuy one was in use also! I bought it online pre-order and had it e-mailed to me.

Gamestop Beta keys seem to be working just fine incase you guys want to pre-order elsewhere.

I got my beta key from Ten Ton Hammer. Amazon said it would be a few days before they would email one to me with my preorder.

Call Best Buy support (888-BESTBUY). Just got off the phone with them and they are sending me a new key.
