I hope this is the right area for this post if not i am sorry

I was just wondering if i bought $50 worth of perfect world game cards at my local gamestop or supermarket could i use still use them on sto even knowing i have a silver account. I would like to use them for the zen and buy a few starships and what would $50 be worth on the zen side..like 5,000 zen or maybe lower. I want to make sure I have everything covered before i drop $50 for the cards.

You should be able to. Redeem the card, then go to your Zen Wallet. Transfer as much or as little as you'd like to STO, and go from there.

Be careful, a friend got one at a 7 Eleven for $50 and tried to redeem it on his Zen Wallet and only got $10 worth of Zen. Perfect World, nor 7 Eleven would help him, each blaming the other. Perfect World told him to return the card and 7 Eleven told him because he scratched off the silver stuff from the back they can't help him. There is also a third party, the actual company that handles the cards who just refers him back to Perfect World and said they would have to correct it and the whole circle started out again. Suffice it to say, the most expensive 1,000 zen he ever bought and an interesting day on our fleets Team Speak channel. FYI, he pretty much stopped playing STO after that.

Keep in mind, STO time cards are old and will just turn you gold for X months.

PW cards generally are for ZEN.

If you want to save yourself grief, take a note of what the card is called and I'm sure folks here will look into what the card does.

Yes those should work....i use em all the time

They don't say star trek on them just perfect world

They tend to feature pictures of sexy elves or other various tolkien characters

they look like these


The only negative is that they don't benefit from bonus zen sales... i.e. 15% more zen blah blah blah

good luck and enjoy the new wheels!
