cool i get a free item
imo, a parent wouldn't trust their teen with a site as shady looking as that
at least gaia is something tangible you can present your parent with
mom i want money for my game so i can buy these cute items see you buy them directly from the site vs
here mom just let me enter your credit card info on this site and i will get items on this other site see that seems legit riteeee
however as an avid pig lover i adore the shirt 4laugh
I refuse to use sites to store my money in even if no information is required. I am very old fashioned and paranoid about those sites. I like to spend my money on this site the old fashioned way: CVS. As for the items, I'll wait and see on those.
In all honesty you're pretty much covered if you fund with a PayPal a/c or Credit card. Any loss of money would be their hit, not yours, although I do understand peoples natural suspicions about giving out personal financial info.
I don't use paypal either. I can still give money to gaia by CVS, but I don't think using sites like paypal and Virtual piggy is a good idea. It's just my personal view because I don't like giving out personal info in any way, shape, or form.
