    So, i wanna buy an acekard and i was wondering if i could use a prepaid debit card or a visa gift card to buy it. Do i just put in the card number onto the credit card portion?

    buy it from shoptemp! I'm pretty sure that any place that takes credit will accept a visa giftcard but you may have to call the card issuer and add your name and other info to the card....here's a link to what I found when searching for it: http://blog.giftcardrescue.com/gift-card-q...to-shop-online/

    credit card if your using a prepaid debit card or a visa giftcard. paypal would be if your using a paypal account with money in it.

    just call the number on the back of the card and tell them your going to buy something online with it and want to add your billing information to the card....then you can just buy it like you would anything else. If you're buying from shoptemp make sure to go to ShopTemp.com not shoptemp.net

    Yeah, I really recommend shoptemp over realhotstuff, shoptemp is cheaper and is the official partner for gbatemp.

    Yes it's the official partner for gbatemp, they have great deals and are totally reliable! You can ask around the forums about them...there's even a dedicated forum for shoptemp!

    Yes, I paid the same price before Shoptemp was open. Shoptemp is legit and if you have problems just post it up in the forums here and I'm sure someone will be quick to support.

    Well yeah there is a trade off since they get their stuff shipped directly from china it does take longer but they do have better prices! you can pay the extra $6 to $10 to buy it from real hot stuff but that wont guarantee any faster delivery either.

    It takes time if you live in the US, being shipped from China. If you need it right away both simplymods.com and leetmod.com are US based, with comparable pricing.

    You can add it to a paypal account, or just type the info RHS requests for credit cards. If it has a Visa/Mastercard logo on it you use it just as you would a any old credit card.

    since I've never purchased from realhotstuff I can't give my opinion on that. I have purchased from consolesource(which though it's more expensive and shipping is $5 it still takes about a week to 2 weeks in my experience), gamebygame(dealwoot, which is now defunct as far as flashcarts go) and kickgaming(comparable pricing to gamebygame with quick shipping) but I did order from these places before I knew about a lot of the other places that are out there. I was going to suggest simplymods.com as well as they have comparable prices and I haven't heard anything but good about them. Simplymods usually ships next day if not the day you order it. But enough suggestions, it's really your choice where you want to order from, but I have heard a few times that realhotstuff was selling acekard clones...

    acekard from ndscardsale.com costs only 12.97USD.. don't think 16USD from shoptemp.com is a good deal compared to that..sorry i don't mean to offend
