CDKeys FB code now only valid 2x per customer

16
Found 5th Apr 2017
CDKeys have changed their terms of use for the 5% code on FB, you can now only use it twice - ever.

Today I tried to apply several of their codes and none worked, so I raised a ticket (I made a purchase no problem yesterday).
The response I received is that although I've been able to use the 5% code with every one of my prior orders, I can no longer use them.

They'll probably have an influx of people registering new accounts based on the above.

I'll be going through Quidco from now on, not as much discount but better than nothing.

Boo, new account time!
their page said it worked that way forever I think, they are finally actually enforcing it I guess, thats gonna be terrible for me at least.
So will the discount still work as long as you create a new account?
Boooooooooo
Quidco always worked for me while using the 5% discount

I was doing that already tbh. After using the code twice it wouldn't allow me until I created another account. Its a bit of a hassle as you also need to create a new email account to receive the code but its still better than paying rrp.

It's still less than rrp without the discount, well certainly for PSN credit, which I tend to use them for

True. This is why I have gone all digital on PS4. When you combine cheaper PSN credit and PSN sales then games can be very cheap. I can't remember the last time I used a disc tbh.
so just make a new account

Pretty much the same, unless it's something I want day 1 then physical is the way to go. But most times I can wait

​It's a long-term ongoing promotion.
I know it's an old topic but finally I found somewhere that seems to mention the problem I'm having, which is all 5% discount codes being refused on my account. It's so annoying because like was said above, the 5% makes the difference between competitive and pointless sometimes. Especially when a game can be £10.59 or under £10 with the code, it's more off-putting to spend over a tenner compared to under a tenner, for example.
