Sadly I've never seen these in the UK - shame as I fancy me that Vesta pack.

like i said before -- (conveniently, the comments have been disabled for the promotional link; no surprise there) - the Ultimate game card promotion is a cheap way to dupe players into buying the cards when they won't be able to use the whole card. Because of "real world fluctuations in the market", as one representative told me, you'll be missing at least 50-60 cents. In which case you'll have to buy ANOTHER 20 dollar card to make up for that missing money. Which also means that you WON'T get the full bonus for the first 20 dollars. So guys, use either paypal and the like, or PWE cards. At least with those, you'll be able to use the whole amount with full bonuses, if available.
I was gifted today with money specificly to purchase an "Ultimate Game Card"
Barns and Noble.. 4 stores) No vards..
Game Stop....... 3 stores) No Cards
EB Games............2 stoes).No nCards
Target.................3 stores).No Cards
Best Buy...............2 STores).No Cards
14 stores no game cards availible.....fark it..I spent $30 on gas and bridge tolls (San Francisco Bay Area) in the one part of the country I should have been pretty much guarenteed to have been able to find this item.
So, instead of PWI making what 45$ on the transaction.. I took the remaining $20 of gift money and got a mear $20 card.
Good Job PWI... not only was this promotion an utter waste of my time, it cost more to chase down which ultimatly did not pan out.
so instead of close to 6000 zen I got a miserable 2000 zen for hours of my time and effort.
From now on forget it.. no more stupid inanane PWI promotion partner offers.
IKf PWI wants to offer promotions then for cry'n out loud make 'em web offers
, because your promotion partners are FLAKES.. (it doesn't surprise me, and I am not in a good mood...I could have been doing something alot more fun today..Flying Fickle Finger of Fate award nomination to Perfect World Entertainment_the award being a statuette of a hand displaying a winged digitus Imputatus,)

Let the happy old bug stomping commence, along with refinement toward enhancing each factions play experience!
Why is this thing even going on? I bought one of these cards and it made me sign up on their site, but the link in the email to verify the account leads to a system error page, even today (literally checked it seconds before posting this.) Is there a trick I don't get or are they really that unprofessional? Seems to me if your partner is unprofessional or unable to provide or handle demand, it makes you look bad.
@partsource - unfortunately, Ultimate Game Card sometimes charges some fees and things when they do a currency exchange. if the website is showing that you have to pay more than $20 then you'll have to buy another card. there isn't any way to pay the extra with another payment type, but you can combine card amounts.
when you do this, you'll have "leftovers" on your second card. you can use these to make another payment, but they won't get a bonus. so like @branflakes said, shoot us an email and we'll credit your second payment manually with sparkly bonus ZEN*
