Buying Digital Cards in Kuwait


Buying digital games is becoming a more realistic option with this recent generation of consoles. This is mainly due to the fact that the consoles all have big enough storage, support external hard drives and because our internet speeds are pretty decent so buying a physical copy of a game isn’t necessary anymore. This is positive, especially in Kuwait where games are expensive and since not every game is sometimes even available. On top of that Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft discount a bunch of games for their consoles throughout the year. The problem for us in this region is that our gaming consoles only accept credit cards from the region you have your location set, which will always either be the U.S. or the U.K. So it’s good to know what websites offer digital codes that could be sent directly to your email.

Keep in mind that the only websites that support KNET are local. So if you’re planning on purchasing a digital code from Amazon, be prepared to use your credit card. So what’s the advantage of buying a digital code off Amazon? Well if you’re buying the $10 PSN card, it costs $9.99 which is equivalent to about KD3. $10 PSN cards in Kuwait go for KD3.750 to KD4 depending on the site you choose. If you have a credit card then there aren’t many disadvantages to getting a digital code from Amazon, the only one I can think of is that if you’re an owner of a Nintendo console, you’re out of luck since Amazon doesn’t sell digital codes for the Nintendo consoles.

For those who want to use Knet, we’re not short on options when it comes to local websites. Currently the websites that offer digital codes (to my knowledge) are Blink, X-Cite and GamesQ8. Digumz sells cards, but it’s unclear if they email the digital codes or not. The website that seems to have the best deals when it comes to PSN and Nintendo cards is X-Cite, but their Microsoft cards are more expensive than the others. GamesQ8 is generally pricier than the other websites and will only send you the digital codes through email only during their working hours.

It’s also important to note that if you’re looking for iTunes cards, both Blink and GamesQ8 currently sell digital codes.

The problem with Payit is they only have the two lowest amounts for some cards, so for example they only offer the $10 and $20 cards for PSN. And even though their $10 card is cheaper than X-Cite, their $20 card isn’t. But it’s good to have it as an option!

Yeah I see your point. I think it’s a stock thing, sometimes they have the higher denominators but most of the time they don’t.

Mark, you should post about Solo PN. They won 3rd place in the world for best pizza. Check their Instagram for more info. is another website that uses k-net, their website is smooth and payment system is much better than others.

I don’t understand why they won’t let us browse their website from a desktop. It’s the dumbest thing in the world and I’m sure they’re losing a ton of customers that way, why force me to get on my phone and browse your site when I can do so from the comfort of my desktop browser??

Yeah, have to agree. my guess is that developing both mobile and desktop version website would cost too much, so they picked mobile version. But i have to hand it to them, they did a good job. it only needs few tweaks and a desktop version.

I personally use Amazon US or UK. They sell digital code only, the catch is you need a local address but you can bypass that by just putting a fake address that’s in a zero tax state. Also xbox store accepts international credit cards and PayPal as a payment option so that’s another option.

I personally stopped buying cards online since yes its easy but a visa is much better, but if you prefer cards my best choice is been using it for years and its 100% safe. other choice would be offgamers for game cards but youll need a visa or cashu account
