When I've checked, the exchange rate is bad - it's a ripoff for gold.

 

BUT, buying other things - like promotional packages of gold, premium tanks, etc. - there is a 'pay with gift card' option where you appear to get 100% of the value and that's a good deal.

 

For example, I got to Subway and buy a $25 gift card, and they have a promotion of a free sandwich for that. Then I can use the full $25 in a World of Tanks purchase.

So, free sandwich.

Subway cards are great.You can use them for everything even use two cards or more for larger purchases.They are reloadable and have no fees.($25 on card=$25 in tanks or gold)There seems to be a problem with Canadian subway purchases the player never posted if it was resolved.You use them in the online purchases section of the gift store  The gift card exchange is handled by a different company in the prepaid section.You pay a fee to exchange the card.Roughly,its about 20%.You can only buy gold. If you have gift cards that you will never use it is a great way to get rid of them.I had several just sliding around at the bottom of my desk,some quite old.It was nice to get rid of them.

I ended up getting a Red Lobster Gift card worth $25 for Christmas and absolutely hate seafood. I know that they don't give you the full value but It was convenient for me to just get some value out of the gift card.

 

I don't think this is supposed to be a best value option for people but more of an option to get rid of unused gift cards quickly.  I still think they should be able to give you more value for it though.

Probably never, only thing they did for Canada only this year was the Ram II special and Canadian flag.

So, exchange cards at a terrible rate and then not be able to use the gold to buy the latest tanks because WG keeps putting them in the cash shop...no thanks.

Exchange rate means nothing.Gouge the americans and gouge the canadians more.Problem is too many wallet warriors need prem account or tanks to continue spamming premium ammo and buying consumables.

Is this a permanent thing? If not, when does it end?

It Gets worse, Barnes and Noble is listed on the big list, but then when you go to select your gift card, it isn't in the drop down.

When you go here and expand, it is listed.  http://worldoftanks....cards-for-gold/

But when you go to complete the transaction, its not in the list.

Applebees was taken off the list too last update. Not sure why. I trade in a lot of them myself. I get safety incentive cards from work quarterly. Of course I'm going to turn them in. So, people like me don't really care about the exchange rate. It's still free.

Meanwhile, micro-patch breaks gold locks and resets everyone to auto fix / resupply.

 

Well played WG, well played

But the game would be crap without premium ammo and consumables...

My Family got me TWO $25 WoT game cards for Christmas and I can not redeem them. The message says the "Payment temporarily unavailable due to technical issues."

When is this going to be resolved?? It has been 4 days now and no response.
