First time trying to use activation code?

So I figured tonight would be the night I take a look at my tezzies. Unfortunately when I try and use my code and public has at it says its already been used or incorrect ? I have gone over it a dozen times and even went back to the website and its correct. Also in Tzscan I have 0 balance and no activity ?? Please help.

I don’t know much about the tool you are trying to use, but if you like, I can try to activate your account for you by using the full Tezos node I am running locally.

I’d need your Public Key Hash/Address (tz1) and your Activation Code in order to try it. This information will allow me to see your balance and to activate it for you, but w/o the private key I won’t be able to actually access your tezzies, in case you are worried about that.
