they shouldnt be set amounts, they have some you can load any amount on, thats what i get, and i have used them several times including the most recent promo.

 

You are saying that Karma Koin has re-loadable cards?

Apparently reading isn't your strong suit as I have clearly stated numerous times I am attempting to do this and their website is an abysmal failure.

 

Hey shat for brains, I read it. I just stated what I do and to mention it to others.

I am experiencing the same issue. I bought 3 $150 pesos (Mexican currency) cards and I am unable to combine them or check their balances. I think is KarmaKoin website's problem because like 5 days ago I bought one card and I was able to check its balance. Also, when I go to the purchase page of Wargaming and put the code, it tells me the balance of the card but I cannot buy anything because I need to combine them

My gf got me 2 $25 Karma Koin cards a couple of days ago and I was able to combine and use them just fine. Have you tried contacting Karma Koin support? 

 

I contacted them and they told me it was a new issue and that they could resolve it in 2 or 3 working days. I also sent them an email while  I was in live chat talking to them but they never responded. Now we have to wait till tomorrow or until they fix the issue

I saw the recent promotion and went to my local retailer and bought 3 $10 karma koins to take advantage of the $30 promotion. Karma Koins website is complete junk, I can't combine cards, check the balance of my cards, and now I can't purchase the bundle either. I am disappointed you guys partnered with such a crappy company and used dollar amounts that required combining cards on their website to take advantage of. 

 

Defective user.  I just went yesterday and bought a new card and combined it with my old card.  I do it all the time if there is a decent promo.  KK works fine and always has.

I am looking at the card I have right here, says on the top $15-$500

You are going to a crappy retailer who already pre-bought those I bet and has to get rid of them

Try 7 Eleven, or CVS, they both have them in any amount.

Yea....every local retailer here has the same pre built denomination cards as well as every online retailer. I went to Target, Kroger, Walgreens, etc....all have the set value cards. We don't have a 7-11 here so can't speak for them but the CVS has the exact same pre set denominations. The fact is it's Karma Koin that sucks not my retailer.

Obamamoney is correct. 


Their site is crap. KK is annoying the hell out of me. 

 

WG should have used the amounts, or multiples of amounts, in which KK is sold.

Howdy Folks,

 

  Having the same issue in Australia,  I bought two $50 Karma Koins $78 US money and the Karma site won't let me

combine them or check my balance, but the world of warplanes (wot) site does recognise the money but it needs to

be combined before I can make the purchase.  I hope wargaming will extend the Karma Koins offer to give time for this

to be fixed.

I'm experiencing this exact same issue.  I can't combine a $50 and $25 card I bought off of NewEgg.com this morning.  The submit button and their website in general does not seem to be in working order.  Check Balance and Combine Cards do nothing.

 

Now I feel like I've wasted $75 and might even miss out on this promo.  I've submitted a support request to KK hours ago and so far no response.  My own rating of their business is 1 star out of 5 right now.

Although it doesn't change anything: 

 

I heard back from KK's crappy support: the combine cards and check balance features of their website isn't working. There is no general time frame for when these features should be back up, but they assure me they are working on it. 


Also, even though KK is supposed to take the place of cash you can't do partial payments with it. So, now I need to go buy another $10 KK card so I can round out to $30; otherwise I will have $5 that is virtually worthless (I don't see anywhere else to spend this crap). You'd be in deeper crap if you'd bought the $25 card. I blame myself for not looking at where I can spend this useless crap.

Going through this problem right now myself. What's funny is I didn't know about the sale until I watched a friend buy karma koins and combine them to buy gold. So I went out and bought $30 too.

 

WG has my ticket already, I'm just waiting for a response.

It only recently started this. I had no issues combining cards or checking remaining balances last month on Karma Koin website. A search reveals this problem isn't WG-specific, several gaming sites' forums have user threads griping about KK's dismal performance since only recently (past several days).

 

 

 

...

 

(Andreas007) "You are saying that Karma Koin has re-loadable cards? "

 

...

 

reloadable in a sense, you can combine any 2 cards up to a total value not exceeding $500. So you can technically "stack" $10, $25, and $50 KK cards two at a time until you get to the $500 mark. The combining process says how it's done: the pin number of the second combined card ends up carrying the full $$ amount of the 2 combined and the 1st card is "emptied" to $0.

That explanation is about the only thing on their site that works.   


 

And here I was all faithful again to actually spend real money on WoT, only to have KK jack that all up. If I was a WG High-Up, I'd be putting boot-to-@ss and reminding KK they're costing me paying customers. "Keep it up and we won't honor KK cards anymore."


 

But that's just my opinion of a solution. You know, if WG was serious about keeping paying customers and all.
