/Origin and Amazon having big sales also:

Via gamerdeals:
Origin (YUCK!)

Amazon sale

Thanks Bats. I finally downloaded Origin so I could get BF 2142 (The last BF with bots). What a piece of shit.

1. DL'd the software and registered. It failed to log me in automatically as expected. Something went wrong with the account creation.

2. So, I tried to send my PW to myself by entering either my email or Origin ID. Sent, and sent, and sent, and no email ever came.

3. Okay, so they don't have my email on file, the account creation must have totally failed. I'll just recreate from scratch. Nope. Email addr already taken. But it won't send email to that address.

4. Okay, so new account with new different email. This worked.

5. Go buy BF 2142. Paying, and phone is not required, so I enter everything except phone. Nope Phone is required.

6. Enter Phone and submit. Nope, b/c if you fail to enter everything correctly the page will reset both the State field (bug, as no other addr field cleared) and the security code field (probably okay, but still no other CC fields cleared).

What an ordeal, but I finally got my game.

Cue the "I just don't understand why folks hate Origin so much!" crowd!

It's probably down to my slow connection, but that list of issues could easily apply to my own experiences with Steam.
