on the 22nd i tried to buy a copy of gw2, the site did say “thanks for buying” but i got no e-mail, i assumed i had reached my limit (college credit, yay) so i waited till next month, bought it yesterday, but now the credit card bill came, and it is saying i bought the game on the 22nd of december, 2012, what do i do to recieve the serial code i paid for?
