    31 replies, posted
My friend has birthday today and I would like to gift him premium TF2, but I have no clue, how to do that. I can't buy it in store. Any ideas? Can I add funds to his wallet or something?
Er, I mean, he has to buy something. You can't give him money.
Add funds to his wallet, then make him buy it in the store, that's all i can think of. If that's not how you do it, then i have no clue. sorry.
Give him money to purchase something from the Mann-Co store.
I think you can't gift him wallet money. Maybe get into his account and make a purchase?
[QUOTE=A B.A. Survivor;31160244]It's free.[/QUOTE] Yeah, that's F2P, he's on about getting premium, i.e trading and other things.
Would it work, If I trade him a key?
[QUOTE=Greendead;31160266]Would it work, If I trade him a key?[/QUOTE] No.
[QUOTE=Greendead;31160266]Would it work, If I trade him a key?[/QUOTE] No, because he's opening a crate, but he has not bought anything. He has to buy something from the store.
If you gift him something that has TF2 in it like the Orange Box or Valve Complete Pack, he'll automatically get premium access. It's a tad costly, but it's the only way to gift it to people as of now.
The only way is to pay on his account. And there's no sending money in Steam. Log in on his account and add money to his wallet, or give him your credit card info ;D
if he has a paypal use that
Maybe I'll just give him the money to buy something in store. But that is so anticlimatic, I want him to see a big message appear HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HERE'S A FREE PREMIUM TF2 FOR YOU, BECAUSE YOU'RE MY BEST FRIEND EVER.
[QUOTE=BTYM;31160286]...or give him your credit card info ;D[/QUOTE] BEST IDEA I HEARD TODAY! :v:
Gift him The Orange Box
[QUOTE=BTYM;31160286]The only way is to pay on his account. And there's no sending money in Steam. Log in on his account and add money to his wallet, or give him your credit card info ;D[/QUOTE] The latter would be the worst choiche, and I already suggested the former :v:
hmm...He only has L4D2 in his account...(and free TF2) I will probably gift him Valve Complete pack. What do you guys think?
[QUOTE=Greendead;31160352]hmm...He only has L4D2 in his account... I will probably gift him Valve Complete pack. What do you guys think?[/QUOTE] What ever you want, it's your friend. :v:
[QUOTE=Greendead;31160352]hmm...He only has L4D2 in his account... I will probably gift him Valve Complete pack. What do you guys think?[/QUOTE] He would be ecstatic, that's for sure
Valve said that they're working on a way to gift TF2 premium to F2Players.
[QUOTE=Guillebon;31160595]Valve said that they're working on a way to gift TF2 premium to F2Players.[/QUOTE] Alright, next year then. Can't wait.
[QUOTE=Sir Spicy Buns;31160379]He would be ecstatic, that's for sure[/QUOTE] If he isn't, and was my friend, I would kill him. Could always sent $5 over paypal.

[QUOTE=Skunky;31160609]Alright, next year then. Can't wait.[/QUOTE] Now that's a bit unfair. Just because Valve is a bit lazy and sometimes take a long time to do something does not mean that they will implement this feature next year ...at the minimum it'd be 3 years
why not just put your penis in his butt it's the perfect gift :wink:

I'd either gift him the GarrysMod + TF2 pack or the entire Orange box. Depends on how much you wanna spend :v:

Tell your friend to wait at least two more birthdays. Then you can surprise him with his own premium TF2! :v:
