Gem Cards more available — Guild Wars 2 Forums

Gem Cards more available

As the title states, no retail stores carry gem cards anywhere . i was expecting Gamestop to carry them at least but no. Yes i know i could buy gems in game putting in my card info but i prefer purchasing cards in person and having a variety of price ranges not using a card or not having access to a card.

  • My local Gamestop carries them. I don't know how many they have to order in a batch, but you could ask. (If you haven't already)
    Walmart used to until a few months ago.

    EB Games here in Australia still has them.

  • The only place that I've seen them in is BestBuy, and only the $25 dollar ones. Also, for whatever reason, I can't buy gems in game. It says that something goes wrong every time I try.

    I had this happen in the past. Putting a ticket into support resolved it.

    The Wal-Mart right in front of our apartments ran out for a little while and low and behold, a new stock of them came in recently. Didn't buy, but noticed some people around here play GW2. Good to know!

    I Rev, therefore I am. Don't ruin my favorite class, please and thank you.

  • They are available online and in-store at my local Best Buy.
    Free shipping, as well. (Should be, as they just stick it in the mail, lol.)

  • They should definitely be stocked everywhere i mean i still see wizard 101 cards, why cant Anet continue to do so

  • Stores had them maybe the first few months where I'm at (Slovenia), it made for a nice gift option for my GW2 buddies. So sad it's no longer available. I know you can send gold in-game and say it's for gems but there's a 500g cap per week (which is not that many gems) and since I know these people in real-life, it's just nicer to give them something physical (and a beer or something to go with it).

    Walmart has them but remember if its more profitable for them to sell you gems in game as you only get 1600 for the same amount of money as a gem card so you need to spend more. funny how nothing is sold at 1600 gems but plenty of 2k gem items makes one think that it might be done that way to have people spend more than they need

  • Since the Gem Cards are 2000 Gems for $25, I'm not sure what your point is. (Somewhat difficult, if not highly unlikely, to find the $15 Gem Cards, anymore.)

  • it be more tempting buying physical gem cards than punching in my card info every time i would like to purchase them, plus more revenue for Anet and a great gift
