LOTRO Contest Let Down

At least one of the winners of the LOTRO Banner contest has found that the 30 day game codes issued to me as part of the LOTRO founders referral program don’t actually work!

No word from Turbine back on a support ticket opened on Monday evening.

Turbine seems to be copying the SOE support model in that regard. Tickets I open with SOE seem to have a 50% chance of disappearing into a black hole, never to be heard from again once the auto-confirmation is sent.

Say what you will about Blizzard, but when I open a ticket with them I get something back, besides an auto-confirmation, within 24 hours.

Has anybody else tried to use a game code generated from a referral by a LOTRO lifetime member? Do they generally work, or is this common issue?
