Usually when you buy something using your visa or mastercard (or any other credit card you could imagine) you gain bonus points. You can use these points to get various prizes or discount but usually you are to busy spending real money to find the time to check out you awards. MAKE reports that very soon credit cards companies will reward their best costumers whit MMORPG currency: instead of getting useless bonus points you will get precious wow gold. This is far more than a funny news. Spending money (M) will give you virtual money (vM); but if you consider that it's possible to sell vM being paid in real money (M) you'll see that we're facing the fascinating Marx's schema M -> M. Now a "funny" question: if money gives you money, what's money for?
