What is the easiest way to buy 3ds games with paypal?

#1Pheonix_DragonPosted 2/7/2013 3:57:49 PM
So I have enough cash for awakening, but all the stores around are sold out. Is there anyway that I can use paypal to get the game online? Does the 3ds shop work like that? And if not would cards bought through playasia be an option?

Also, I would like to be able to play this game tonight, so hard copy games will not be happening...

Funny you ask that, I JUST found a website that will send you points cards through email. I was a bit wary at first, but i got the email and so far I've put 20 dollars on my eshop account. You can pay through paypal, but since its a small business, probably owned by one person, you have to pay an extra 2 dollars for a 20 dollar card. Not a huge deal since its convenient. Heres the site: http://www.thecardcloset.com/

I just placed a second order now that I know its legit. Waiting for the email.

Ok thanks. But I found this on playasia:

http://www.play-asia.com/Nintendo_Prepaid_Card_US50_for_US_network_only/paOS-13-71-18p-49-en-70-5qmj.html

If I buy this, can I just read the code off the site?

I think I read somewhere that they email it too. You'd just be paying 10 extra bucks though, which is why i just opted for 2 $20 cards.

Ok, but doesn't awakening work out to $42 with tax? But yeah, I may prefer to go with a name that I am more familiar with. Just can't trust the internet sometimes....

Yeah, but I'm just planning on changing to a region with no sales tax. Easy to get around it. But glad you found what you were looking for!

Oh, and if anyone knows, how long does it take to have the code sent? I've been waiting almost a full day and other people are saying that it is instant.

Newegg accepts Paypal and they have Fire Emblem up for preorder (Another shipment maybe?)

No unfortunately I have already paid with paypal on Playasia and they are dragging their asses with sending me my code. They didn't do it yet, and the weekend is coming up so they likely won't have it done until Monday. Seriously, it's only a couple of keystrokes. It should have been done already.

Not impressed.
