Has anyone tried the purchase option for Gold using "Any Major Brand Gift Card"? Does it work?

It has to be an international purchase card. One way around it is to link it to Paypal or Amazon.

I use CVS drug store cards Easy to use and more safe than credit cards. Works in the US and no handling charges so you get dollar for dollar value. At one time there was the option to use many different companies cards ,but I don't see that option anymore,plus there was a 10 or 15% charge.

I've only ever seen that offer around Christmas, I thought it was a seasonal offer only.

Be aware if you use gift cards they charge a ridiculous amount for using it. Just bought a $15 subway card to get 2500 gold for a month of premium account, which only coasts $13. Said it was only going to give me 2100 and change gold for $15. Somewhere around %35 charge to use a gift card. Cant these people just give full disclosure? Surprised it wasn't 2499 gold. I'm not going to let somebody charge me %35 to hand them money. EXTREMELY disappointed.

Checked again to see the exact amount of gold they were "offering" about 2 hrs after the first check. Lo and behold, the amount changed from 2100 and change to 2370 gold for a $15 subway card. Subway cards and the price of wot gold is not a commodity on the stock exchange, it doesn't change by the hour. Clearly they're making it up as they go along. When I was selecting the gift card payment option, a window popped up saying "no additional fee's". When I got the receipt, it said the transaction was for $10.22. So in somebody's mind $4.78 is not a fee. Semantics. Starting to smell the fish?
