I recently asked about game cards being used to purchase memberships and I was told this goes against security. This in my eyes is a prime example of being condemned for not being well off enough to have a bank account or a credit card. I do not understand the big deal here other games allow game cards to be used on the whole spectrum of services, and personally I am inclined to boycott all purchases till this changes to be more friendly to all of the people that play online games.

Which game cards are you talking about, the zen cards or the game time cards? Most of the desirable features of a gold account can be obtained while remaining a silver account and buying the appropriate unlock with the zen card.
1hr of work @NYS Min Wage 7.25 = 725 Zen
725 x 102 (or current exchange rate) DL = 73950 DL <- can you earn that per hour in game?

Support said all game cards are not useable, I was intending on buying lifetime but looks like that's out the window.

I tried using a prepaid credit card to buy Zen at one point didn't work. Basically when it checked it threw it back in my face.

Here is what worked.

Pay Pal green dot cards (but they want your Social security number)

Steam cards

If I was to buy anything more in this game it would go through steam. Why? Prepaid cards VISA/AMEX/Mastercards all have like a 5-6% charge associated with buying them. So a $200 card becomes $212 at check out. Furthermore the card I purchased didn't exactly like to work with their web system. Just save yourself the hassle goto a Game stop and buy a Steam card. Not sure if that works to get a LTS but under most circumstances the steam card is probably your best option.

I believe people had some success using the prepaid cards at walmart. At least that's what Mav said on Stoked.

First I've heard of the problem.
I use nothing but pre-paid credit cards for games (security precaution).
I see the Perfect World game cards at the 7-11 but after your cash goes into one of those ALL your options for recovery are gone.

To each their own, I guess.

this...
I use one of the Wal-mart money cards for all my online game stuff...I have for years.
No problems, no issues ever.
They do charge a fee to put money on it, but it's only 3 bucks.
