Vienna and Salzburg Discount Cards

I will be travelling with my wife to Vienna and Salzburg in June. In planning our trip, I have come across discount cards for both Vienna (Vienna Card) and Salzburg (Salzburg Card). It looks like a pretty good deal, if only for the use of public transit. We do plan on seeing most of the attractions that are included.

Does anybody have some practical advise on them? Was the value there? Did you have any trouble using them? Should I order them online of wait until I get Austria?

Thanks in advance for your help.

In Salzburg we DID buy a card at the hotel. Broke even with a trip to the mountain cable car. The river boat was not running (October) although the website said it was. Easy to use, easy to buy there.

In Vienna we bought a weekly transit ticket and individual tickets for sights; rode the ring tram many times with RS audio tour in our ears.
