Here is an article that explains how to buy Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on foreign stores 🙂
1. Find the best store
The first thing to do is to go to the game page : Call of Duty : Black Ops 4
As a reminder, only the gift card method works to buy on foreign stores.
Unfortunately, Turkish (TRY) and Argentinean (ARS) gift cards are almost impossible to find, or expensive, so I will not take them into account in this article.
We can see that the 3 most interesting stores are the Singapore (SGD), Taiwan (TWD) and USA (USD) stores
Here, we will focus on the Singapore (SGD) and USA (USD) store, the prices of gift cards are quite interesting because retailers make little margin on them.
Taiwan (TWD) is excluded because there is too much margin on the price of gift cards.
2. Giftcards prices
Go to the list of gift card resellers to compare the most interesting site : Xbox Gift Card
Singapour store :
The game costs 79,4 SGD, so you will need 90 SGD in gift card (50 + 20 + 20).
On MTCGame :
- 50 SGD = 35,37 EUR
- 20 SGD = 14,15 EUR
- 50 + 20 + 20 = 35,37 + 14,15 + 14,15 = 63,67 EUR (~= 72 USD)
On SeaGM :
- 50 SGD = 31,27 EUR
- 20 SGD = 12,51 EUR
- 50 + 20 + 20 = 31,27 + 12,51 + 12,51 = 56,29 EUR (~= 64 USD)
So SeaGM website is the most interesting to buy on the Singapore store!
USA store :
The game costs 59.99 USD, so you will need 60 USD in gift card (50 + 10).
On MTCGame :
- 50 USD = 38,27 EUR
- 10 USD = 8,52 EUR
- 50 + 10 = 38,27 + 8,52 = 46,79 EUR (~= 52 USD)
On G2A :
- 50 USD = 38,90 EUR
- 10 USD = 8,49 EUR
- 50 + 10 = 38,90 + 8,49 = 47,39 EUR (~= 53 USD)
MTCGame website is the most interesting to buy on the USA store.
It’s quite surprising, but the USA store is much more interesting than the Singapore store!
Why? Simply because the price of 50 USD gift cards is lower than their actual values!
Normally 50 USD = 43,62 EUR, whereas on MTCGame it is 38,90 EUR (~= 43 USD) 😀
I don’t know if this is normal, but enjoy it, now is the moment.
So to conclude, the game will cost you 46.79 EUR (~= 52 USD) on the USA store, by buying the gift cards on the MTCGame website.
If the gift cards are no longer in stock on MTCGame, G2A website isn’t much more expensive 😉
Attention: There are taxes (a few dollars) on the USA store! To avoid this, and to have 0% tax, you will have to enter an address in the Alaska region, or Oregon when the site asks you to do so 😉
Here is an example address: 4800 Spenard Rd, Anchorage, Alaska 99517, United States
Update: It seems that the 50 USD cards have increased on MTCGame, but they are still low prices on G2A!
Are you familiar with account sharing?!
This technique allows you to share all the games in your account with a friend or other trusted person!
By doing so, you can share the costs on the games you buy, by halving the price for example:-)
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will cost you 43,62 EUR divided by two, or 21,81 EUR (~= 25 USD) ! A great economy.
