Now that SE is launching, is there a consensus on ways to pay?

I recall when the CE launched, there was a flurry of threads about Click n Buy being a low-rent, vulnerable-to-attack paysite with no customer service, and about Crysta and Time Cards being something of a rip-off due to the increments in which you buy them.

Now that the hysteria has settled, what's the overall consensus? Is Click n Buy safe? Is Crysta convenient? Are the time card buyers still happily smug?

I like using ultimate gaming cards. Yeah it is annoying not being able to buy exactly the cryta I want/need - but I don't care - because for once I don't need to use a credit card - which I don't have.

I use click to pay with a burner prepaid card. Just load it with 30 dollars a month for my fee and a friend's fee. If it gets compromised I'll shred it and get a new one. Hurray, technology!

Do you buy Crysta with UGC? I thought Crysta was only available via PayPal. Are they usually easy to find at the retailers the UGC company says they work with? (e.g., Gamestop).

Also, this is apparently one of the retailers that sells UGC. I can't believe I've never heard of this company.

THE ULTIMATE GAMING CARD

man - it made me feel like I was an 8 year old boy - not a 27 year old woman... but whatever.

You can buy UGCs **** near everywhere. Seen em in gas stations, gamestop, walmart, target. They're pretty popular. But I prefer burner prepaid cards. Just as easy to get, and more flexible in usage. Only restriction is that you have to be 18 to get a burner.

If you have a paypal account, you can also buy Crysta with that. I did this for mine and the wife's accounts, and it was very easy.
