WorldofTanks Roll Out gift cards are deceptive, because nowhere on the card does it state that it is NOT ACCEPTABLE payment for special offers of vehicles.  You have to go to the website, look up 'Payment Via Prepaid Card' and read the entire section to find out that these cards give you gold EXCLUSIVELY, which apparently is not acceptable currency for things like, say, the Skorpion G which is on sale for a limited time.  This is the reason I purchased the cards with some gift cash, and now I have a bunch of gold sitting in my account but no access to the vehicle I really want.

 

These type of limitations should be clearly stated on the card itself, so that purchasers will know the cards are only good for 1 thing, and that may not be the thing wanted.  Wargaming, I would appreciate a refund or other mechanism by which I can acquire the vehicle package I wanted.  I have no use for all this gold. 

 

I can't begin to say how disappointed I am.

You can use that gold to train the crew and buy stuff for your new Skorp. If you don't want it I could use it.

Should have read the info about the cards at "WARGAMING.net":

 

Please note

The World of Tanks Roll Out cards come pre-loaded with gold and are not designed to make purchases via the Gift Shop.

Upon redemption you will receive the following amount of gold in-game.
$25= 5,342 Gold

Did you not check before you bought the card on what it could be used for?

Yah, should have intuited that there would be llimitations to the ways I can spend CASH on this game, right?  I saw this disclaimer when I went to REDEEM  the cards, because by golly it wasn't on the item being purchased.  Please make some sense from a consumer standpoint, instead of quoting me the obvious after the fact.

9 battles and 620 forum posts?  Since September 2015?  Do you consider this to be social media, or a gaming community?  I'm truly curious.

You got what you paid for. It's on you to actually read the conditions. Like CTL said, Caveat Emptor

Gosh darn those Ts&Cs that exist that no one ever reads for getting in the way of me doing what I want despite the fact that it even said that what I want didnt exist.

Failure to read the Terms and Conditions is not fraud. Thats on you mate.

It is pretty scummy that it isn't clearly and obviously marked on the card what you're actually buying, instead implying it is gift shop credit.  But I'm pretty sure it's in the fine print on the back of the card that the actual value is in gold, at least in the US market.

Such deceptive behavior isn't uncommon though, so always read all the fine print on anything you buy that's like this.  If you're buying online where you can't, do some research first.

But that requires reading, we've already established that as a no go

Yeah, OP, they did the same type of thing on the bonus cards they gave away at the Let's Battle Tour in NYC. Nowhere did it state on the cards it's only one per customer, and since they had issues with the system and tickets needed to be submitted to redeem the codes, then they enforced a one per customer rule.
