Hey Simmers! Everytime I go to walmart or future shop I notice they sell EA Cash Cards and not Sims Cash Cards.

If I get an EA Cash Card, can you redeem it for SimPoints? And if so, where do I redeem it at?

Happy Simming!

Once you redeem the cash card you have 2 options, you can just buy ea point at there store which has a better exchange rate if your not a US simmer. just type in simpoints. They have i believe the same bundles as here.
Also you should have the option if you have your account linked right to redeem your whole EA card balence for simpoints when you go to buy them on this site.
I hope that helps!

i think you can use the ea cash cards to get sims points. last time i went to best buy i saw some and i looked at them since i was considering getting one and i did see a sim on the card. I ended up not getting one but buy them through the site instead since they were having a sale plus you get bonus items with some of the packs.

I won't be buying online so Cash Cards are pretty much my only option which isn't bad. I just didn't want to redeem one if I got it under the wrong thing (if that makes any sense at all... haha)

The EA cash Card gets redeemed into a general EA account, then in shop mode in the game you can convert the EA balance into sim
points -taxes. This gives you about 1870 sim points for a $20 card.

I find them at gamestop or EB Games. I've been hesitant to buy one though because I didn't know it was able to be used for SimPoints.

Also, why do we only get 1870 points and not the full 2000?

When you buy sim points there is tax added. A 2000 block of points cost about $21.30 to buy. If you buy in shop mode you can convert your EA balance to sim points minus taxes. $20.00 get you about 1870 points.
