So I had someone tell me about being able to use a Google Play gift card to buy their premium with and was thrilled because I had previously used a pre-loaded debit card which wanted to charge me $7.00 per month to use...

 

I go and get a $25.00 Google Play card and try to buy the premium bundle I wanted through the in-game store, but then Windows opens-up Microsoft Store and, guess what? I can't use the Google Play gift card! There's an option for PayPal, but I can't use this card... 

 

I figure that's it's because I was forced by WarGaming to download the game through Microsuck and their Big Brother store, so I try uninstalling the game and then downloading it through Google Play Store, but Microsoft wouldn't let it download... No warnings or anything... It just didn't download although Google said it was installed. So I click on my Blitz Assistant and click 'Battle!' at the bottom of the Blitz Assistant app only to have it re-direct me to Microsoft Store to download the game from there...

 

This blows. There needs to be a way to make these purchases without all this Cloak-and-Dagger 'My Store is bigger than your store!' thing that's going-on because Microsoft apparently hates Google and/or vice-versa... Now I've got $25.00 tied-up in a gift card that I'm having more trouble than I thought I would in trying to use it... My next option is to try and download the game to my phone and try to make the transaction through it...

 

Any thoughts Blitz?

Sucks. I would recommend asking someone to redeem it for you but that is against the rules :(

I'm kinda confused so I'll leave my version here.

 

1. Grab a friend's android device (if you don't have a friend, well, uhh... borrow your Grandma's)

2.  Log in with your google account (that you downloaded blitz with)

3. Redeem and get your E25 I'm assuming you're getting. (Psst... not worth it.)

Yeah... My cell phone doesn't have enough memory to download the game to it so I can go through the store that way and do it... 'Means I've got to go get a $15.00 micro SD card for it just to download the game to it so I can make a purchase through Google Play store that way so I can resume playing on my PC, LOL... 'Just wanted to get the $23.99 Basic Kit so I can get 30 days of Primo and buy garage slots, mainly is what I'm trying to do...
