League of Legends prepaid cards earn Riot Points with purchases

Are you a League of Legends fan? Do you want to keep better track of your spending but still buy all those seasonal Blitzcrank skins? American Express and Riot Games may have a deal for you, the New York Times reports.

The two companies are partnering for a line of prepaid debit cards illustrated with characters and scenes from League of Legends. More than showing your loyalty to Teemo at the register, using the card earns Riot Points for a linked game account.

Cardholders get 1,000 points, or around $7.50 worth, when they sign up for the card, another 1,000 for loading the card with its first $20, and even 10,000 points for linking it with a direct deposit account.

(We do not recommend you eschew a bank account entirely in favor of a prepaid debit card, no matter how many champs you can unlock with it. Especially if you need to shop somewhere that doesn't take American Express.)

    Hi,i just get a Riot points code for league of legends from a website..But i don't know if is working for anyone,because they are using a program to give the codes,but the program is locked by a password which you can get it only if you complete a surveys and they change the password once a day.Well,i got 10k+ RP in a day so is kinda great...The website is www.cheatsandcr4cks.com

    I don't really see a problem with this. I'm going to spend money anyway, so when I'm doing so, its nice to get something as a reward along with it.

    Damn. I wonder how many people are actually going to get this.

    This is that point where things have gone just too far, it's just wrong and immoral at this point, this is when the devs should just take a good long look at themselves and each other and agree that it was fun at first and the end product was good for a time but things just got out of hand, it's time to just shut down the servers and walk away, it was a good run, but this is just the pinnacle in a future of things that really shouldn't happen.

    Good sir, are you daft? LoL has the market to make this very successful and line the pockets of both riot and American express. You really think league is done? That's like telling Sony close up shop.... its not gonna happen. Unless you were being sarcastic.

    How is this any different to any other rewards program? If anything this is a great sign that video games are becoming more socially acceptable.
