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?".

 

 

It says "Wargaming is pleased to announce the start of a new payment system which allows you to convert the balance available on major American gift cards"

Besides, I'd rather keep my Timmies card :P

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!

Again, I appreciate the concept I do but since we are giving actual dollars here for pixels at least give a equitable exchange rate!!!

This is a gigantic rip-off. I was excited when I saw the title and went to the page, but when I saw the payout, I was disgusted. I could understand a very small fee for this service, but almost 40%?!?! Wow. That's outrageous.

What no McDonalds?

 

I get more of those stupid heart attack gift cards than anything else EVER. And I go to McDonalds about 6 times a year tops.

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? 

 

Right now this service is only available in the states.

 

I think the service is looking to expand in the future though.

I have around $400 worth of Tim Horton gift cards. I get them fairly often because I'm hard to shop for and I have 4 kids.

I used to have the worlds biggest collection of crappy aftershave.

we have no control over the exchange rate, nor do we keep any of the money ourselves. You're getting the best rate possible with this service.
But i understand your concerns, and appreciate you sharing them ^_^

Guess i'm going to buy tacos, instead.

You got a gift card for the holidays - free money. That's awesome. Your options: spend it on the thing it's intended for.

Maybe you hate the thing that it's intended for, and you're never going to use it.

Now you can spend it on gold.

All we're giving you is another OPTION for your gift card

If you dont want to use the service, use the gift card for the intended thing: still free money.

Win win win.

But if you have a Target card for 25.00 and take it to Target and "buy" a Burger King card and then use that card to buy gold it will be a better rate of exchange.

Don't think so M8.  They might give [edited]gifts ( if any ) but when I need my transmission rebuilt all i gotta do is make one phone call and it gets done in two days for free.

Hard to get more reliable than that.

Hope to hear back from you soon in the message I sent back in response to.

 

I'd gift tacos, but that would most likely be quite troublesome for all parties.
