      Of course, if you are terrible with cards, don't do it for sure. Heck, skip wiz all together for awhile and invest in a money management class instead.
      What part of I DON'T USE CREDIT OR DEBIT CARDS did you miss?

      As for money management, all my bills are on AUTOPAY through a checking account, except the water bill which is usually 20 bucks; like I said, I'm on a fixed budget.

      I was responding to your words here: "P.S., Anyone that wants to burn their credit for crown sales, more power to you. Since you have a revolving debt looming over you at about a 16% interest rate; I don't and I'm on a fixed budget." What part of quoting someone don't you understand? :P

      I wasn't telling you how to buy crowns. I was just point out how much smarter using a credit card is if you like not paying double for things.

      People including the OP have been moaning about not having the Crowns sales as they intend them to be and then moan to laughter for me at least; of how KI is being totally unfair to them.

      After 6 months a credit card jumps from 6% to 19%. What idiotic person would buy into that? I know that your not hiding your disdain in my comments, but I was giving you credit about knowing I was referring to burning through a credit card that has a set limit of 5000 dollars.

      Was I wrong in thinking you and others were oblivious to my comment?

      Yes. Yes. You totally have the right to laugh. Prices going up will not effect anyone chosing to pay top dollar in the first place. You evil mastermind you.

      Who would go for that interest deal? Well, it is an amazing deal for people who are good with money as they make it work for them. They pay it off each month so they never have to pay the interest. Pretty cool trick. If you don't owe anything, they don't charge you interest. Cards also give cool chash back benefits too so you come out a head if you know what you are doing.
      I would not recommend one for you though. Keep to the gift cards.

      If you decide to limit yourself to only physical crown cards, I don't think KI sales are the problem here. This method pretty much ensures you're getting the worst rate possible every time you buy anything.

      There's so much stuff online that only takes plastic anyway that it seems collateral damage to just pull this option if they wanted to for whatever reason. Not as popular in stores anymore like it's been in past years anyway, and I've seen most of the stores around me stop carrying aside from Gamestop.

      Buying crowns with a credit card isn't objectively a problem regardless. Credit cards are far more secure than cash, and if someone decides to steal my card numbers at a gas station, it's even more secure than a debit card. Zero liability and I can get any fraudulent activity reimbursed with a quick call to the company. As long as you pay it off each month, it's like getting a few weeks extension and a few percentage points back of rewards. While I don't even spend that much, using my card instead of cash gets me a few hundred in bonuses each year I wouldn't otherwise have.

      And if I would opt for the 2 month membership, I will ignore playing W101 until the day after my membership ended, so in my case taking the 10K crowns is the better option.

      When I buy the cards, tax is not included, so when newer areas are added in, I can buy the zones and the game; so if friends need help, I can join in.

      Since the lockdowns, I have been playing P101; doing the dailies (CVS has stopped carrying the cards), so I can advance in that game every 15 days.

      Really? Being limited to only doing the 10 crown questions is way too much financial info?

      Other people that were oblivious to me mentioning that I needed to take financial classes, because I don't use credit and debit cards.

      That comment was out of line, and I went the extra mile on commenting why I am rather limited on options for obtaining crowns.

      Others, like the OP, were moaning about not being able to blow their credit cards for shady crown sales that were not happening as expected.

      And after mentioning an option I use to gain crowns, many were quick to shoot down that option because THEY REFUSE any route that isn't the yearly price for crowns.

      And honestly, if people want to blow their credit cards for the crown sales; it isn't my problem, so it doesn't bother me.

      Well it seems like there are many of us that wish the classic crown sale was still an option so we can blow our credit cards funds on it.

      There's no need to continue this line of conversation. Let's not get too riled up on the details...let's keep this a friendly conversation on a forum where we can all be civil and enjoy the game.

      Clearly there was a misunderstanding; we understand you have different circumstances that makes buying physical gift cards a more reliable way to purchase crowns. However, this thread was meant to be exclusively about crown sales on the Wizard101 website.

      This thread does not need to exclusively be about Crown Sales, but seeing how this segment of it has been concluded we should move on to talking about other things! ..Like how @Sparck- or rather KingsIsle*- still hasn't given us anything about a non-answer...
