I'm a bit confused about the direct payment system on the "earn more crunchyroll bucks" page or whatever it's called. The system set up tells me that $5.00 equals 5,000 of something, but what is that something? 5,000 crunchyroll bucks? or what? Thanks to anyone that can help.

CR Bucks!

I believe the page you're referring to is - http://www.crunchyroll.com/earn_cr_bucks

There's a note at the bottom which tells how the break down from dollars to CR Bucks works.
It's essentially 1 penny per 1 buck.

$5.00 would be 500 CR Bucks.

Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Yes, one more!

So, please tell me if I am understanding this properly. If I pay $5 through that method I would get 500 CR bucks. What does that mean in terms of paying for a subscription? That I would nowhave, say, $500 to go towards a subscription?

Edit: I currently have $6.00 in CR bucks earned from surveys and whatnot. If I were to purchase 500 through the above method, what does that do for my total?

Wait, I think I get it now. If I were to purchase CR bucks that way I would then have $11.00 in CR bucks. Is that correct?

Yes that's correct. 500 CR "points" are worth $5 into your balance.

Note: You can't pay part CR bucks and part normal money. i.e. you have to get all the money in CR bucks for this to work.

Edit: Spelling errors
