Magazine Code Question

Both my son and I bought a copy of Beckett's magazine for September/October. He put in the code for his character for the nifty sword and it worked fine. When I went to put in the code for my character I got the lovely message stating that it had been used by too many people and was no longer a viable code. If a million people have access to the magazine doesn't that mean that a million people have access to that code and should therefore be able to use it? I purchased the magazine and should be able to use the code. My son purchased the magazine which I was unaware of and used the code for himself. Is there a reason I am being penalized for his usage of the code as well? Is there a reason why the two characters cannot have the item? Is it because we have a family account? If this is so why can we not share equipment through a shared bank? I'm really confused as to what is going on with the codes. Please advise me because I'm beginning to get really disgruntled.

Sorry to hear the Beckett Code did not work on the second account.
Mr Lincoln can definitely get this sorted out for your very quickly.

Just contact him directly through our Help & Support tab on the left of this screen, let him know the error you encountered and he'll straighten it out for you.

each magazine code is different, and can only be used once per account if you want a second code you would have to subsribe to beckett twice

if you are both on the same account just different wizards that could be a reason, but if you have different accounts it is just because the code in each magazine is different and can only be used once. if you want the sword you will have to buy another magazine but if you and your son are on the same account only one character can use it i think.
