    Did you even notice that QM mentioned they were on rollback?

    Turbine didn't tell them to put the cards on discount in the store. I'm fairly certain Walmart itself decided to put it up on discount. See, Walmart buys the cards and Turbine gets a flat fee. They don't send out cards for free and then get payment WHENEVER one is sold.

    There isn't any harm in them informing the player base of a general sale going on. Certainly it's a little silly to cry foul and complain about the lack of a sale currently.

    It's like noticing you have the option to buy discount peanut butter WITH jelly added already in one jar, and then complaining the normal peanut butter isn't on sale.

    The cards are an option for people who don't want or feel comfortable with obtaining TP in another way. And Turbine has so much on sale and so much on rotation for sales that there's hardly ever an absence of a deal going on. Just have a little patience and you'll get the specific deal you are yearning for eventually. Complaining about not getting special deals does not normally bring about an urge to give special deals, at least not at my DnD table.

    Sorry to hear that... I do not have any control on which Walmart retailer carries our cards.
    Never seen a Turbine card ever in the last two years. Then again, I wouldn't go into a Walmart to rob it, much less shop.

    Wal Mart is only going to carry what they feel will sell for a given area. Especially if a generic Visa gift card is a better deal.

    Tried looking at our nearest Walmart for a game card once. The games manager looked it up and said they have 50. The problem is they also have 50 of those stupid gift card carousels and he said lazy employees at said store often get new stock and just put the cards at whichever carousel has a spot. I looked through a bunch of them and then left.

    It was an SOE card. They do 2x cards btw. Then again at a full 2x(to 3x as well as 2x on your 2x card turnin) rate you never feel it's worth buying them any other time.

    I thought the cards weren't being produced as of a couple of years ago, but whatever stock was left and sold would be honored. Wasn't there a huge discussion on it way back when the forums were readable?

    I remember a discussion. However, the last I recall is that Tolero or someone said the cards had not been discontinued, but there was a gap in production because of some change. I can't find the thread, either

    Is it that you don't know where the stores are or that you know none in Illinois carry the cards or what?

    Try this link: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Dungeons-a...19.99/19530520


    And anyone else can use it too.

    Speaking as a UK player, you might as well made them free, it would still be a useless 'special' offer.

    Don't forget you DO have players outside of the US!

    IIRC, "DDO" and "LotRO" cards were being discontinued (but those left would still be honored), in favor of "Turbine" cards that could be used for *either* game.

    I could sometimes find a DDO card at my local Gamestop, but that was a few years ago so prolly no help to anyone anyway *g*
