Exclamation Unsolicited Origin Access

I just got an email from Origin saying "You've redeemed an Origin Access Membership Code" and saying that I have 1-month access (non-recurring).

I see nothing in my Origin order history and I don't recall ever getting a code and definitely didn't redeem one. Is this Origin/EA giving out a deal (did any of you get this as well) or should I be concerned?

I already have 2-factor authentication on my account, am confident that it's not a scam email (my origin account shows Origin access Basic member for 0 days). My only thought is somehow one of my kids signed me up for it but I would hope it wasn't so easy.

Any of you experience this?

------------------------

Okay, I suck... after this I went to their support forums to ask about it and it seems it's a thing. Was going to delete the post but thought maybe it could help another confused soul in the future:

Solution!
We've merged your questions about the free Origin Access Basic month into this topic.



Update - November 5:



Hey all,



As of this morning we're rolling out the free month of Origin Access Basic. This is done in phases, and you will receive an email from us to confirm it's been added to your account. The email states: "You've redeemed an Origin Access Basic Membership Code".



This free month of Origin Access was part of a promotion we ran in October. Here is what we'll be giving you:


Already an Origin Access Basic member? We won’t charge you during the month of November, and you’ll get charged as normal for your next month during the following billing cycle.

Are you a member of Origin Access Premier? We’ll give you a free month of Premier instead.

Already have Login Verification enabled? Great! You’ll get a free month of Origin Access, too.


I'll update this post once all phases have been completed.

--Tom

Maybe you were hacked? Lol.

This would be the perfect time for the spammers to send out EA emails since everyone has been disarmed by the legit ones.

Just got my pass today. It's not exactly an impressive library. I should have no difficulty playing the games that interest me during my free month.

There are some decent games. You get your usual dose BF, NFS, ME, FIFA, and SW.

There aren't many good games, but if you sub once a year, for a month, it's damn good value. Hell, for just one new game it's good value.
