Summary: This game is in every way shape and form a step back from a game that already came out 10 years ago - City of Heroes. Why they decided to continue Champions Online and completely shut down CoH completely baffles me, I guess the microtransaction model was already in place for Champions so it seemed more profitable. Regardless, I've lost all respect for the company for selling out like that.
Summary: To redeem, you have to install the Arc client (a new front-end), click on your account name in the upper right, click on "My account," then on "Manage Subscriptions." There will be a radio button for Redeem Card that should accept the code on these. And, unlike some who have commented here, I used one and got a full 60 days of membership, which saved me over half of the regular subscription price.
Summary: Paying about $10 USD for 60 days is an incredible bargain. Since it usually costs $15 USD a month (30 days) for a regular subscription, I recommend purchasing these cards if you wish to Subscribe to this game.
Summary: I bought this for my sons and they were under the impression as I was that it was a 60 day card. They are only for 30 days of membership when you redeem them. Beware of the wording. Amazon sells them as 60 days and the company only gives you 30 days.
Summary: Its a time card and it provided the time in game as advertised. The game itself isn't all that special. Its very popular with younger kids but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone older than 20 or serious gamers. I used one of the cards I bought but I still have the other because I lost interest in the game quickly after I began playing.
Summary: Although the game's moved to a subscription-optional model and is being administered by a new company (Perfect World), the codes on these time cards are still honored for 60 days of gold level membership. With a price point lower than the base subscription price, it's kind of a no-brainer. Think of it as your savvy shopper discount.
