A Personal Identification Number (PIN) is located on the back of the card, usually under a layer of UV Ink that must be gently scratched off in order to reveal the code. The code is then entered into the RuneScape website after selecting the "Prepaid Cards" section of the "Shop" drop-down menu.
They are available for purchase in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, and Switzerland.
Different Card Lengths
A 30 Day RuneScape membership card is purchased from select retailers, and when redeemed, will give the player 30 days (1 month) of RuneScape membership. In the United States, these cards cost $10/$25. When redeemed, loyal members (those who have a reduced price for being a member for over a year non-stop) do not receive any bonus credit. Therefore, if you have the price discount, it is recommended to not buy this card. If this card is redeemed between 20 October and 4 November 2011, you will receive the option to change your skin colour to green by visiting Diango or the Makeover Mage. Currently there is no reward for a 30 Day Membership.
90 Day20 June to the 10 July of 2011, when a 90-Day game card from GameStop was redeemed, you would be given a free in-game item, the Ornate katana. When redeeming a 90-day game card from Target (USA) or GAME (UK) from 18 November to the 8 December 2011, players received a free Turkey Hat. On dates between 22 June 2012 - 15 July 2012, buyers received a Flaming Skull. This reward is not included when purchased online. (possibly because of the contract between Jagex and the shop).
