OK I've linked my paypal and serve accounts and the balances show up on serve (so they verified). My paypal balance is 0 ( no funds)

What do I need to do to get 11k? Buy a moneypak and put it on paypal? Then how would I get it to serve.com?

Just need a little clarification - i'm close I think..

Thanks!

Just get $20 in funds to your Paypal account by any means (sell something, transfer it from your bank, etc), then use "transfer to bank account" on those funds and send them to your AmEx account.

I think we're doing rocket science here. :D

I Got my 11,000 RP today, finally. I got worried when the $22 paypal transfer went to completed but there was nothing in my serve account. Be warned: when you call Serve (before it went through to their end the next day), they will vehemently deny that you can transfer money from paypal or amazon to serve, because they are direct competitors and this type of transfer won't go through. But sure enough, it did go through.

But they say this type of transfer amazon/paypal is not allowed and will not go through their system because they are a competitor. Yet they also admitted that all of these transfers are done 'electronically" and I even told them "hey dude, money does NOT disappear."

Be warned....even though it worked for me, they claim it won't work and it's not allowed.

Just got my 11k in RP last night. Worked just fine transferring from paypal but I plan to turn that into Amazon GC's as soon as possible just to avoid any possible complications.

Thats all we need is more people calling in without a clue and Amex finally fixing it so only employer direct deposits get the bonus rp.

How long did it take everyone's Paypal to clear Serve? Transferred yesterday morning and I know it says 3-4 business days but it seems like most people got through in 1-2.

Paypal still working as of today. Just a heads up, when I first logged on to the LoL client it didn't show up, as soon as I clicked on the store my RP updated.

No, the direct deposit (I went through Paypal) gives you 11,000; 1K for your first $20 deposited and 10K for your first $20 direct deposit.

Is the money actually in your serve account?
It takes time for it to clear, unless you're using a debit card(which is instantaneous).

The 1000 RP is for activating the card.
But just in case im wrong, log into your serve account. If it says "direct deposit" for the transfer, then you should have gotten the RP. If it just says "transfer", I'm not sure.

Mine says: Direct Deposit PAYPAL-TRANSFER ****

Money is in the account I believe it wasn't direct deposit so I will go ahead and use paypal.

After adding this card to my paypal as a bank account I was having issues sending people money (got an error). Figured out it was this card causing issues with paypal. Removed it and everything is fine. No biggy since I already did the direct deposit for all the Riot Points!

My serve account was just locked last night, no explanation given and it wants me to reset my password.

As of 9/16 this still works, I got all 12k or whatever points finalized yesterday (paypal method). 10x e-gift cards for the final 1k and make sure you buy them each separately.

I also got all 13k points and linked my Chase debit card to the account to go spend crazy on the Serve card without having to reload it. Chase locked my debit card account five times in two weeks, lol. I also ran my Sprint bill of ~200 bucks through it and gained 65RP for it. Not the WORST, but pretty cool for those of you who don't touch credit cards and just use a debit card. If you want points on your debit transactions and your bank doesn't offer that, linking a bank debit card to the Serve card is the way to go (If all you want is RP, that is).

Good if you don't have a credit card but why the hell would you not have a credit card.

The RP you get from purchases is horrible compared to credit card offerings. Each $1 you spend gives you about .25 cents worth of RP so it's like .25% unless I did the math wrong.

Even thank you points are better than that.

Seeing as how most people who play LoL are mostly still in schools/college - maybe that crowd? If you're gonna spend money, why not earn something, it's better than nothing.

IMO you should build credit in college and if you are in grade school/secondary school you ain't spendin money anyways unless it's your parents' credit card.

I agree with what your saying I'm just disagreeing for the hell of it.

Hey, I agree, but with college kids and this crippling debt they put themselves through to gain an education, I wouldn't blame them for having one less debt risk to deal with.

Just got the email.

The most relevant fee is the $1 monthly charge, which is waived as long as you do a Direct Deposit of any amount once a month. Other fees are miscellaneous, and there is no transaction fee.

Fees start December 3rd.

You can cancel online, just withdraw all funds or spend them and then there is an option to cancel.
