    Most cost effective way to buy Garena shells/Riot points

    I've been considering buying the $30 Garena prepaid cards because when converting, I get bonus RP. But earlier I had a match and I casually asked in chat about how much RP bonus you can get buying the $30 card instead of the $10 card. Someone said his friend used his credit card to buy RP instead, and instead of the supposed 960 RP, he gets 1000 RP so a +40 RP bonus.

    I didn't see how to use a credit card to buy RP though. I see that you can buy Garena points with a credit card, but I don't know if any savings would actually happen when you convert to RP instead of just buying the $30 cards.

    Personally I rather not use my credit card, but just wondering if there really is a bonus amount of RP and how much is it (to me right now that +40 RP isn't really worth it to me to use a credit card to buy instead of prepaids).

    I dun think ppl are buying only 1k shells with credit cards.. there was a thread about how ppl explained buying 3000 shells with 90USD using credit cards are cheaper than buying 100SGD worth of cards(3.2k shells)..

    The conversion is the same whether you use cards or credit cards as you are converting them from garena shells and the convert rate are fixed. So I think its more about saving $$ rather than bonus RP..

    btw, the cards give you garena shells then you need to convert them and converting at difference amount has difference bonus RP..

    hope that helps in some way..

    It's cheaper to use debit/credit card to buy shells online and then convert to RP..
    This is because

    $30 for 960 shells (prepaid card)
    $25 for 1000 shells (online) make sure you pay through 20 USD option. 20 USD => about 25 SGD

    You will also get more bonus RP if you convert 1000 RP one shot.

    So you will save $5 if pay online which is the cost of a tier 1 skin I think.
