I'm always annoyed when I can't use my card and need cash, such a pain.

exactly. ever since I got a debit and credit card, I refuse to bring a lot of cash with me.

Great for those with poor credit / kids though. thumb.gif

Yeah but a lot of prepaid credit cards have additional activation fees and such. I hope we see Steam cards in Walmart, Best Buy, KMart, 7-11 and other places if they don't already have them. Also, most PC games brand new are $50, so shouldn't be an issue of having to buy 2 for one $60 game. It just it more efficient for situations like asking for a present, having issues with online transactions or just having a gamestop card to use on something.

I dont understand what your response to me was, but if you want a copy thats sealed all you have to do is ask, I've never been turned down unless its the very last copy in the store and they used that box for their display. If they did there store like everyone else did everything would be have to be put behind glass and wouldnt be as appealing to be able to just walk in and pick up a box and read it.

Gamestop has always been good to me, I finally got a used copy of Tales of Graces F because the girl who works up at mine offered to take down my info and call me when they got a trade in...they have also let me return things wayyyy past the due date and have let me use coupons on things that coupons shouldnt of been used on.

Also if you stack promotions, you can make out like a bandit.

The activation cards are usually around 5$, and some even allows you to reuse them. Not really a problem if you just put the exact cost of the steam game.

Also, if you buy a steam card and change your mind, don't expect to be able to return it. With a prepaid credit card you still have a choice at the cost of losing 5$.

Went to gamestop yesterday and picked up $40 worth. No activation fee, and I dont have to borrow someones credit card anymore:thumb:
