Is there any chance more gift cards could be added, such as steam cards or fast food?

The payout isn't the best, but I am sure the fees are pretty atrocious on WG's end. 

$50 = 7500 gold. 

At least it  makes some of these useless gift cards we get have a purpose. Like the Bed, bath, and beyond one i got. Ok, I got some amazing candles with it. but still.

Is there a standard dollar amount format per gift card value, or does it depend on an individual deal with each merchant?

Payout is GARBAGE pure and absolute GARBAGE!   $50 normally nets you 12,000 gold and that is with NO discounts!!!   $30 = 6500 gold I appreciate the concept but since we are giving actual dollars here for pixels at least give a equitable exchange rate!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

$25.00 Starbucks gift card 3750 Gold
$32.00 Best Buy gift card 4800 Gold
$50.00 Walmart gift card

7500 Gold

$25 giftcard = 3750 gold.

or

$14.99 giftshop = 3000 gold.

That additional 750 gold is pretty expensive.

 

I think I'll have the coffee.

Pretty sure Amazon was already an option.

Totally true and yet I am confident that many players will do it anyway.

I understand that some players may prefer their card over the conversion rate. However, this is an optional service, for players who get gift cards and would rather have in-game Gold in Tanks. If it's not for you, that's okay. But for some of us, it's a pretty awesome option!

How dare you not include Tim Horton gift cards!! Right now some 30 million odd Canadians are saying "EH? What's this? Do they understand that these cards are worth more then money?".

So how does this work? I clicked on the "Gift Cards for Gold!" button but it just sends me to the gift shop with a pop-up saying "Item not found"

Is this only available in the US?
