Some how somewhere the conversion system is bjorked.

I paid 54.70 usd for my 50 game card went thru the redeem process and its valued at 52.10 leaving another 2.60 to pay which means it nonredeemable for the 5750 bonus...... wanna fix this please, pretty uncool

Ummm. You do know that the bonus doesn't start until June the 1st PDT... And you posted 10 minutes before this...

Yeah, I redeemed a $50 card at 1:30 AM PST and it didn't credit the bonus, filed a ticket to let them know.

Well...... I have a 30.00 game card and can't use it at all.

Every time I try, the UGC checkout flashes on my screen briefly only to be quickly replaced by a Perfect World "oooopps" bad URL error screen.

It just seems this company can't quite get anything right these days

okay so i found how to fix the conversion issue.. the system defaults to your local currency via your PW account when redeeming the code make sure in the right hand upper corner of the ultimate pay window you change it to USD

but as has been previously been posted you only get 5300 zen not 5750

You're sure about this? I'm looking at the PWE Zen purchase page for the Ultimate Game card, and it shows 5,000 + 750 for a $50 Ultimate card...

I wonder if your problem might be caused by the Europe VAT issue... In the US/California, Virtual Currency purchase is considered a non-taxable item...
