I dont like banks. So I use a greendot card for online shopping. I used this card as a payment method for my subscription for about a year, and now suddenly EA doesn't allow you to use these cards?

Whats gives, EA?

Why are you spamming this forum with unconstructive drivel.

Get you a bank account, its not that big of deal.

I'm asking around about this now. I can say that Paypal should be a viable option.

What you will want to do is go to Origin.com, and buy a 60 day code. They accept Greendot.

Actually it's not. In the US, the 2013 budget for new currency printing is $797M. So that is $797 million dollars that is wasted on printing a physical item, A physical item that use could easily be replaced by a non-physical item (debit card, EFT etc) that shifts the cost of usage away from tax payers. "Cash" or paper currency is as antiquated concept that cost this country $8B over the course of 10 years and people who use it are fiscally irresponsible.

By the way, can I borrow a dollar? Thanks!

Not sure but I don't use my bank card online either. My prepaid walmart card still works.

My old greendot card expired so I purchased a new one. I deleted my old payment method and added the new, and it wouldn't work.

I called customer support and they said greendot cards are no longer accepted. >.>

Having my greendot card not accepted is definitely a first.
