Ever wanted a copy of Minecraft, but you didn't have a credit card to pay for it online?  Today should put a big smile on your face - Mojang announced that they are now selling Minecraft Gift Cards, which should be available at major retailers in the US, including Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and Target!  Once you get your card, all you need to do is log in to your registered account (or create one) at "account.mojang.com", use the gift code on the card, and you're set!

While no official word yet exists on whether these cards will make it to other countries, it is currently believed that Mojang is exploring this option, so keep your ears open!

Minecraft Gift Cards have the same retail price as a copy of Minecraft in the US, at $26.95.  If you have been holding off on getting Minecraft because you couldn't buy online, now is a great time to get a full, registered copy of the game!

I was about to buy it by credit card, but it's much simpler when you buy a gift card. Waiting for it to arrive to Canada - Québec (if it will!)

Add Canada to the list please, I may have been able to convince my mom to use her credit card for my current account, but chances are I may not be able to convince her to use it again. I want to buy my brother an account

So don't get your hopes up unless Sweden has a Best Buy or Walmart that I don't know of.
