GOG Gift Card (redeem 1 or more games of 5.99/9.99/x.xx value)

Added byAkiMatti's avatarAkiMatti

Instead of giving gifts of specific games to your friends it would be so cool to be able to give this kind of gift cards so they could select a game for themselves! That way they would get to know the great selection you actually have here and possibly get hooked, hehe! But really, I've been doing Christmas shopping here every year from when you started and this would be such a good option. Sometimes the game I've selected might not be as good as I thought and that is a bummer.

I want this too!

I have no credit card, and would love to buy a gift card from a store so I can get some games.

Virtual gift cards would be a great way to thank the gog members that give a lot of their time to our little community.

My sister is much better at picking the games she wants than I am, thus this would be far preferred than gifting a specific game.

I would love to be able to buy store credit so I don't have to use my debit card every time I want to buy a game. I would be much more willing to just click a button that subtracts from my GoG money, than having to input my info again and again, especially during the Insomniac Sale.

It would be nice to have gift cards available in stores. I feel safer using gift cards than I do using my credit card or PayPal online.

If they're physical cards, great. If they aren't, that's fine, too. I would just like the opportunity to gift someone an amount of money to spend on whatever game(s) they want instead of only having the option to gift them specific games that I want them to have.

If GOG had gift cards I would never, ever buy anything else but the those for my friends and family. I have 6 siblings, and all of them are game nerds. I don't like the gift a game option because then I have to try to guess what they like.

It's something I'd want too. Given how vulnerable e-commerce sites have proven themselves to be, I am not comfortable leaving my credit-card number with them. I much prefer using pre-paid gift-cards or reloadable "credit cards" with only a fixed amount of money on it to limit my liability.

I had the same issue with Steam and almost never used their online store until they started selling those gift-cards; now it's a rare month I don't buy a game from them. I imagine the same thing would happen if GOG offered a similar service.

Of course, GOG.com is still a pretty small operation, and even if they did offer these cards, getting them onto the shelves at your local retailer will probably be a major challenge. Still, it is obviously something a lot of their customers are interested in... here's just a selection of other wishes asking for the same thing (vote for them all!). Hopefully this is something they are working hard to achieve; it certainly would pay off for them in the end!

I would have made purchases here previously but could not due to visa gift cards only accepting domestic use and not international.

I'd be making WAY more purchases this way as I don't have good debit / credit available to me!

Steam has them. GameStop has them. Why not GOG? I'd grab one in a heartbeat if they where available. Everyone please spread the word to get this feature more votes. It's an awesome idea.

I'm preparing to ditch Paypal. And since prepaid visa/mastercard don't work outside of the U.S. I'd love an alternate way to pay. Either gift cards or chargeable account balances would be nice. Even flat rate cards like we see at Target/BestBuy for $20.00, etc.

This would be awesome. I would like to use prepaid cards over credit cards, so this would work well for me, besides, other companies are doing it, too.

One more thing. I really hope that if they do make this, they sell them in retail stores. That way I could buy myself games on Gog.com with cash rather than paypal/credit cards.

I think this is a great idea. I suggested vouchers that could be bough at stores and then redeemed on GOG.com, similar to Steam wallet cards. But your idea seams much better. Gog.com is not a bank, it would be a bit silly to store credits here when you don't intend to spend them immediately. The fact that Gog prices are so predictable means this is practical. Unlike on Steam where prices are all over the place.

that would be awesome. Gitft card for any 5.99 / 9.99 game is needed.

This site needs GoG.com cards so that people who don't have PayPal or credit cards, or can't find a bank that will do business with GoG.com can enjoy the site's games.
