Hey guys,... I need to know how you can deposit money into your PokerStars account without using a credit card.

I don't have a credit card,...never had one,...and don't want one. I've always paid for things the old school way,...with cash,...and if you don't have the cash,...don't buy it.

Anyhow,...in Canada, no bank will deposit to a poker site. I have a PayPal account,...but they won't deposit either.

I know there are money cards,....prepaid debit cards,...or what ever they're called,...but I've never used those and don't know anything about them,...or if PS would even accept them.

This is the thing,... I REALLY REALLY want to maintain my ChromeStar status,...as I'm doing VERY well in those. I get into the money about 65% or so of the time,...and they've become a source of $$$ for me to buy into bigger money games,...which I do so-so in. Win some,...lose some.

In order for me to stay Chrome,...I'm gonna have to earn just under 16 VPP by Sunday evening,...and it's gonna be VERY close whether or not I can pull off enough wins for the next 2 1/2 days...to keep me floating.

So one way or another,...I might have to get a few dollars in there quick!

Anybody know lots about depositing to PS? I'm ALL ears... Please tell me me what you know!

Thanks! Smile

Hmm... now this is a tricky one... u see, I use moneybookers ( or skrill as it is now called) and that to me was always the easiest and fastest way to deposit/withdraw without using a credit card. the thing here is: i know that u can deposit with it... BUT... to charge your moneybookers account in the first place either u use a credit card or make a deposit to it from your bankrollmob account and then to a poker site ( that was my case. i already had a moneybookers account empty so when i got 5000 points i moved them there).

Yes lucas,...it's a wee bit of a sticky situaton here... I will at some point get a Skrill or Moneybookers or whatever account when I'm approaching a 5000 mob point thing,...but I haven't had the notion to get one soon...

Maybe one of the Canadian boys can tell me what THEY know as each country probably has its own criteria for this sort of thing...

I believe PokerStars will send money directly to your bank account if you give them the number or whatever...

Paysafe card eh? I wonder if they're available in Canada..?!?!

I can't phone around today as it's the Easter holiday,...and EVERYTHING is closed...

EDIT: Oh,....by the way,....Happy Easter folks,..... I'm eating the ears off a chocolate bunny as I type this.....lol...

G'day mate

What you want to do is go to ANY Canadian post office and purchase a UKash ticket!
It is extremely easy to fund your PStars account this way and you can buy a UKash for as little as $25 from the Canadian post office.
Trust me it WILL work out GREAT for you. The post office will charge a small fee for the service.

Hey Ronin my man,.... There is a main post office here in town, but it's closed on weekends,...so that won't happen for me,....but I'm wondering if I might get a UKash at one of the little satellite post offices,...like the one at the Shopper's Drug Mart here... It's not open until Saturday though.

Aside from that,...do you know any other methods of getting $$$ in there...

If I have a variety of possibilities,...maybe I can find one that'll work for me...

Anyone?

Thanks for the link Alexandros!

I looked on there for locations in my town,...then phoned them. 2 were little convenience stores open today. They said they didn't sell them,...so I'll try another few that will be open tomorrow.

Hey IceMan,...I just may take you up on that,...but we'll see.

Right at this moment I need 16.70 VPPs.

I have enough money in my PS account to buy me into the $5.50 in the morning, and the $4.40 tomorrow afternoon.

That'll reduce the amount of VPPs I need down to 11.75.

From those 2 games, I SHOULD be able to get into the cash in at least one of them, which would buy me into further games.

But the MOST I would need is $23.50 if I borrowed. That would buy me into 2 $11 games which would just about give me what I need.

I still have lots of opportunity to make it up on my own though, as I have 3 $100K Priviledges to play both tomorrow and Sunday,...plus I also play a few mimor games like the 2 .10c games, the .25c, and the 2 $1.10 games,...which I get into the money about 3 of 5 times in all of them,...

....But I AM hoping to make something from the 5.50 and the 4.40.

I appreciate the offer,...

The way things are looking at this point,...I'll have to wait until Monday until the post office opens so I can buy the card Ronin suggested.

I also sent an email to PS to ask what they accept!

Thanks for all the input guys!!! Smile

I completely agree; however, these days you can get VISA/MC debit cards. They function exactly like credit cards, have the same numbers, expiry dates, etc. But they don't actually have any credit attached to them, they just draw directly from your account, so they're not actually credit cards, they're just debit cards, but you can use them literally any where you can use a credit card.

That is what I use to do my deposit - and withdrawals.

Now THERE'S something I should look into. I never think of these things.

Thanks for the heads up!!!

Looks like I have SEVERAL options here, but being the weekend,...and especially the EASTER long weekend,...I've got myself stuck in a nailbiter situation. Wouldn't be a problem if I wasn't within a hair of retaining my Chrome status.

This stuff's all new to me. I couldn't have forseen any of this,...but it's a learning experience... Smile

G'day mate

I just want to let you know that you can go to any Canada Post outlet or subsiduary.
I always just use the one at the closest Shoppers Drug Mart because it is convenient.
The local Shoulton's store also carry's UKash tickets.
If you go onto PStars and go into your cashier and click the buy chips button (like you was gonna make a deposit) then click the UKash deposit method it will open up a UKash screen which has a link to the main UKash site and you can get a full listing of every place around your postal code area the sells them.
Just so you know many places sell them but their employees just do NOT know about it because they simply have never heard of UKash let alone sold one. I have run into this problem before at the shoppers drug mart, just tell them it is normally on the alternative lotto ticket machine.
It prints off just like a 649 lotto ticket.
Trust me mate they got them at all Post office outlets in Canada.

Be cool

Hey Ronin,...there's a Shopper's Drug Mart just around the corner from me. I'll check it out.

Please tell me a few details:

-what are the increments you can buy,...$20, $25, $30 or whatever,...or can you get any amount?
-What are the fees on those. Say you get a $30 ticket,...how much will end up in your PS account?
-Is the fee included in the tic,...or a surplus payable above the amount
-Once you have the tic,...and you deposit it in your PS account,...is it instant as soon as you complete the process on line with PS?

Thanks!
..............................................................

EDIT: One more question Ronin or anyone...

Is there some sort of BrM promo,...or somewhere on PS where you get a first time deposit bonus or something? Don't they usually double up your deposit?

I'm sure I've seen something somewhere about entering some code like PokerStars600 or something like that somewhere so they can give you a bonus...? Make any sense?

Thanks!

As an extra, one thing I usually do when depositing ANYWHERE on poker/casino etc, is to always go to live chat, tell you you want to deposit but can't decide which site you want to use and ask what they can offer you. You can usually end up with extra tickets to games as well as the deposit bonus. Just check what they offer everyone, before you go into chat, then ask for me.

It really does work

It depends where you go to buy the UKash ticket. Some places will sell $10 tickets, the post office starts at $25 i think and they will charge you an extra fee when you buy it. The fee depends on the amount of the UKash ticket being purchased.
It is instantly added into you account once you input the 16 or so digit code.

Be cool

Well I do not know about that you might secretly be the behind the scenes owner of PStars after all. So is it true can you help out the mobsters?

be cool and bast of luck.
