    I cant find wii cards anywhere, all stores are sold out and dont know when they are getting them. Should i go on ebay, i would spend an extra $10, but with tax in a store i would spend total of $7 extra. Mario kart 64 is coming out tomorrow, so i want to have that, i have 700 points left over but i am 300 shorts. should i go on ebay? i have done ebay before and have bought stuff from it b4 so i trust it, but is it worth it?? what do u think? mario kart keeps on going through my head lol

    use your credit card. 1000 points = £7.00 with tax included.

    Fine, I'll help...

    This will be a pain, but I will help a fellow Wii owner out. Send me your Wii via UPS and I will load it with 2000 Wii points and send it back.

    I got one from a guy with the username vijeta21 off of Ebay. It was $20.49 and free shipping. I told him not to bother mailing it to me, just scratch off the back & email me the numbers. I paid with paypal & half an hour later, I had the numbers. I think paypal is a little safer than just throwing your credit card out there.

    What specifically do you fear will happen?

    You're much more likely to get your card number stolen when using your credit card in a regular retail store or restaurant. Online transactions use encrypted connections between two systems, and most of the time, no human is even involved in the transaction or ever sees your card information.

    Seriously, shopping online is probably the safest way to use your credit card.

    I'm afraid of getting my credit card number stolen. My husband is into Locksmithing. He bought stuff off of a "secure" locksmithing website. His number was stolen and we had crazy stuff getting charged to us. It's good to be cautious.

    That was the one and only time we'll just put our credit card online. I haven't had any problems with paypal and I've been using it for years.

    It was probably an employee of the website business that took your number.

    It's not that easy to intercept your number being sent from your computer to their website (it's technically possible to do, but it's far easier for thieves to get card numbers by other means).
