    Default Trying to buy myself VIP Time Code

    I downgraded from VIP to Premium a few weeks back and want to go back to VIP, I don't want to have a recurring subscription so I thought buying myself a Time Code each moth or two would do the trick.

    Then I read the Small Print...

    5.Our Game Pass is only available to those living in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and New Zealand.
    Is this still the case? I'm in the UK

    If it is and I have to use a monthly sub, can I use my Debit Card? I don't have a Credit Card and don't want to use my PayPal account- it's a nightmare to cancel recurring stuff on that.

    I mean I must have used my Debit Card in the past to get a yearly sub for VIP surely, so can I just stick in my Debit Card numbers in the Credit Card field?

    Apologies for being akward, but I want to be paying month by month with the option to cancel two weeks or so before the new sub date.

    Thanks in advance,

    *bump* Who do I ask here apart from this cos the Website from Hell is worse than Microsoft's Help.

    I'm getting this Error:

    The Product Key you have entered cannot be used to upgrade this subscription due to an invalid upgrade path. [err: 29308]
    I'm not using a Product flipping key, I'm using a Debit Card.

    Any ideas?

    I have a Guild to run you know!

    It's not really that hard to cancel it, just go to the turbine account page and cancel it. Also, you can just go to the Paypal page where it shows your recurring subscriptions and cancel it there, in case it doesnt work on Turbine's end. Sort of a back-up. I've never had a problem with it, and I frequently let my VIP lapse and wait a few weeks til I resume it ...

    Thanks, but I've kinda voted with my wallet and made an account on another game. They were more than happy to accept a Debit Card transaction with one or two clicks.

    I'm dissapointed, but not surprised, at Turdine's (sic) ineptedute in this matter, I got two TR'd chars and a good Guild with nice members and now I can't get VIP even though I want to pay for it.

    In real life, I'm a Founder Member of the Chartered Quality Institute, maybe I'm expecting too much for things to work like they're supposed to.

    God help us all if Turdine (sic) started making things that matter.

    I use to use my debit card all the time for vip i don't think anything has changed. i might add it is cheaper to be premium and just catch double points once an drop 60$ and buy like all the packs and be done with it. or you could always give them a call M-F 12pm-9pm EST at 781-407-4020.

    You're probably right Brick, my old Guild leaders Luna and Pope said very much the same.. just buy all the packs then don't worry about the subs.

    I should have listened to them, but at the time I was new and didn't really know if this game would be as good as others I play.

    However, I beleive that buying all the pack is slightly more than 60 bucks lol

    [Edit] oh +1, thanks[/Edit]

    60$ should cover all the basics everything you need to properly level up.

    delera's 668 tp on sale now
    vale 680 tp on sale now
    gianthold 760 tp on sale now
    sands 760 tp on sale now
    von 600 tp on sale now
    reavers reach 200 tp on sale now
    Path of Inspiration 280 on sale now
    dreaming dark 280 on sale now
    reign of madness 360 on sale now
    necro bundle 1196 on sale now
    this covers everything you need to level a double tr to 20 and the double point bundle for 60$ right now gets you 8,850 tp the packs i listed total 5,784 leaving a bunch to play with still. o also Menace of the Underdark Adventure Packs is 2495 tp you would have about 3k tp left to buy it as well and still have 500 tp to spare on what ever pack. its not everything but its a real good start and once you have then its for life.

    Brick, thanks man, I'm printing that out as I type.

    I look forward to trying how to buy TP's with my debit card since it didn't bloody work buying a subscription (there is cash on it, I looked online).

    I've given up and went to another game. I have to let my Officers know.
