Hi there,

I've recently come across an issue with trying to invite a friend to the 7-day trial, here are the issues.

1. Thanks for your interest in the Friends Trial, but you are not able to invite a friend until you are a subscriber.

I am a subscriber and another friend also gets this issue when trying to send out an invite.

2. You have used up all your (25) friend invitations. Which is strange because my other friend has (24) left out of (25).

Please help!

Hi Ganlorth,

The first message appears if you have not passed your initial 30 days that came with the game.

The 2nd message appears in error, when the intended recipient of the invite has opted out of receiving promotional mails from EA.

The following workaround should help your friends with this issue:
  • Log into with their Origin or EA Account Email address
  • Click on the Username in the upper right corner on the screen
  • Now select “Contact Preferences”
  • Tick the box “Contact me about EA´s products, news, events and promotions”
Once your friend has followed these steps please try to send an invitation again.
