    I'm trying to make up my mind which games to download, and I want to know if (1) can I just buy the odd number - say 2300 points on a credit card and (2) will I get ripped off by transfer fees using the credit card? (I do live in Canada)

    You cannot buy odd amounts with the credit card.

    The ones you buy on your CC are in set amounts (1000, 2000, 3000)and are a bit cheaper

    I also use a Credit Card to purchase all of my VC games. I have never bought a single Wii Points card as a result.

    I'm in the Maritimes. Use a credit card, it's cheaper. Not leaps and bounds cheaper, but it is.

    Use your credit card, it's much faster plus you can buy say 5000 points in 1 shot and then not have to worry about buying anymore points for a little while.

    My only beef with purchasing Wii Points with a credit card is the painful onscreen keyboard nonsense. It'd be so much better if they had a wireless keyboard for it (and the internet channel for that matter).

    credit card/debit card more better and no tax too when u buy it, only if you got one on you or own one.

    you buy it at the store will be $19.99 plus tax be like around $21.64 or something.

    you get it and buy it on the wii console on the shop channel.. its only $20.00
