Unhappy Borderlands 2 Character Skins dont work

Ok so i got Borderlands 2 at midnight release and played it at around 4:30am (i live in WA) and as soon as i turned my xbox i put the code for the Borderlands Vault hunter edition, which is supposed to give me 4 character skins and that special grenade too, and it told me that it wasnt available or something like that. Then i come back the next day to play and i try again to put the same code in and it says that its already been used?!?! but i dont have the skins? and yes im the only one that uses the xbox so no one else could of used it. do i have to get farther to use them or what? im currently just arriving from claptraps ship. PLEASE HELP

When you get to create your character, you have the options for the extra skin, generally they are one of the last ones and are red.

You do not get skins for Vault Hunter, nor for Premiere Club...you get it for BL1 saved game.

Go to the 360 download history and check if the skins are listed there, so you can just download them again. A few people have had that sort out their download/code problems (though this is the first I've read with skins)
