I realize that if you cancel your preorder with a third party retailer that your head start access isnt affected but does anyone know if I cancel my preorder with origin if my head start will be shut off? I want to buy the game with gift cards I received instead of using origin for my purchase.

if you cancel, your early access is canceled as well, happened to me. I ordered on Sept 7th and Origin, canceled my order without notification for no reason. Had to order again, I WOULD be playing right now, but had to order again. Never ordering through origin again.

because i went to the star wars site, and it told me to redeem my pre-order code now, and when i was doing beta said "star wars early access basic standard" yada yada, and when i went back on the 5th, it did not say that anymore. So i enter in my code again and says "Code is already in use" contact origin, and they tell me the order was canceled, to order another.

I have been having my own nightmare situation with Origin, you can read about it here . I advise you do not cancel your order if you do not need to as they will probably not allow you to re-order it. Good luck and do not give up. I know its frustrating, I've called them several times and I still do not have a resolution.
