real fun, live in the states and bought a $100 visa gift card for gold premier club, turns out they have it in the tiny print that I can't use it internationally, are there any work arounds for this so I can get my gold premier club?

Hi there
Axel XIII


The card cannot be used for a direct purchase from Jagex because Jagex are in the UK.

You will need to use it for a local purchase.
Investigate using it through PayPal, Amazon, PC GameSupply etc.

You may have to buy Bonds which can be redeemed in-game for Gold Premier (20 Bonds required).

Don't use it to buy RS pre-paid game cards as they cannot be redeemed for Premier Club. (other than the Bond option which will require 5 x $25 RS pre-paid game cards.)

thats what I was looking for, I had checked amazon but all I found was the buy a month of members and various runecoin packages, I also just looked up PC GameSupply and found pretty much the same except they had 90 day and 180 day cards, no option to buy bonds or premier club

apparently if I load the money from the card onto paypal I still can't make "international payments"

I would try adding the prepaid card as a "credit card" to your PayPal account, then select it as your payment method while trying to make a PayPal purchase with Jagex. PayPal is a US company so this could work.

If you don't have any luck, there's another workaround that I've used a few times. Do you have any friends/family whom you would trust with $100?
