Hi guys I just bought the world of warcraft battle chest and it says you get a free month. But from what I see its says you need to register for monthly payments with a credit card.

To be perfectly honest I am a student and I want to use my free month while I am on spring break, stop until summer break, and then pick it up again using the 60 day prepaid cards.

Is this possible and if so how would i go about this? I'm sorry but I just don't have enough time to play while in school and I don't want to pay since I cant play it.

Register with a credit card and then immediately 'stop' the billing (first payment doesn't get taken out until your free time is up). Your account will be credited for the full 30 day free play time, and you can add time cards at any time.

You aren't forced to do so, I believe you can cancel or choose to ignore when it asks you for a credit card.

That's generally the case for MMO's.you need to subscribe and then you get the free month.

When you put in your cd key it will ask you for a credit card or a game time card so it can keep billing you, but you can just leave the page before you put anything in and you still will get a month

Will I be able to stop playing for a little while and pick it back up without losing my leveled character?

Thanks

Yes. They want people who "quit" to have incentive to come back. ;)
