It took 7 working days but I got a reply and new redemption codes. I did have a case number in my request after spending 20 minutes on hold and 60 minutes working with a rep to set up the iPads. The instructions and process weren't as clear as I wished they could have been.

That's a lot of time wasted on hold then, glad you got somewhere with it though, i just wish they would fix these problems with a software update! still no indication when this will happen tho :/

I have had the exact same problem. Using configurator 1.4.2. Purchased 5 apps, 25 licenses per app and every single one had issues, either (null) or 'already redeemed'. I've tried a few things but can't seem to work around it. Has anyone found a way to fix it without waiting and waiting for a configurator update?

They still have not given any of us a solution yet. Currently all that we can do is inform VPP about the key's that we've lost (Specifically how many) and they will recover those keys. I'm waiting on them to recover keys for a group of App purchases that we placed.
From my experience I'm assuming the issue is how Configurator is handling redeeming keys as it places an app onto an iPad. Somehow or someway more are being redeemed than should be before they are placed on the devices.
Has anyone had this issue in Mountain Lion? I just want to verify since all of our computers have been updated to Mavericks.

I'll add my voice to the choir.
Exact same symptoms as described elsewhere.
I've spent HOURS on the phone with AppleCare Enterprise Support over the course of the past 3 weeks.
Case # 525011601
No response in over 7 days. Their last communication simply stated:
"The fix for this will be in the form of an update to iTunes or Apple Configurator. Please keep an eye out for any updates. If they have a solution I will certainly inform you of it. It may be late next week before I get an answer."
I've tried creating multiple new users (and therefore new Configurator databases) but the same problem happens every time.

Once the code has been flagged as being "redeemed" there is no way for that key to be recovered. Therefore, if you're creating separate databases/logins, it still will not obsolve the issue. Its unfortunate that we can, pretty much, guarantee that on every cart we add new apps we will always have broken codes.
In the mean time they are only handing out new keys while the old keys are broken.
I would suggest this link so that you can send them the information on how many keys you need recovered if they have not discussed this with you yet.

Oh yes, I'm well aware.
I've received over $1,000 in VPP refunds in the past 3 weeks.
I always used new codes (new VPP purchases, new VPP spreadsheets, codes never redeemed) when I was testing this with new users. The same issue was present with a new user, new database, and new codes. Twice.

If you delete a paid for app in AC and re-add it, the codes automatically appear again, does anyone know where these are stored in the back end to manually clear them out or delete any that are imported by mistake?

Same issue here. We're purchasing codes via VPP and pushing via Configurator. On Mavericks and Configurator 1.4.2. Some codes work, others give either null or already been redeemed error

I'm having the same problem, i've also been issued with replacement codes and these worked for 3 ipads and then i got the exact same error as before, codes null or already used. I imagine i'll be re-issued more codes but without an update for the software the problem will continue. I talked to apple enterprise guys and they said it's a known issue and they're sorry but didn't give me any word on when an update or fix would be released.

Same here, bought 50 codes each for 5 apps. the first 30 iPad, no problem, the next 10 iPads, headeache. Some apps had no codes available, some had 1 or 2 available. Unbelievable.
And again Enterprise support says, yes we know about it, and we are working on it.
