Byte: Uhhh, why?

Blizzard, not content with a monthly income of tens of millions of dollars in subscription fees, have come up with another cash cow: The World of Warcraft credit card.

The hook is that 1% of the money you spend is returned to your WoW account as playing time. Except that if you read the small print, that 1% is only on "qualifying purchases" - and that you can't even find out what constitutes a qualifying purchase until you become a cardmember...

Hmmm. Where did I put my barge pole?
