Are they going to stick around longer then 2 days this time?

Will my order(s) actually go 'through' this time?

seriously? I mean I liked the first special offer a lot (tank + garage slot + gold). but gold consumables and premium days? who'd ask for that? that's not so tempting, is it?

I want another tank-sale :)

Nice offers, but am I the only one who does not want the premium consumables, but more gold or a cheaper price instead?

Your not.  I think gold consumables are used even less then gold ammo - and for good reason. That's alot of REAL money to spend at the start of the match.

But WG is really trying to push those lately. They're simply too over priced to be practical.
Heck I havn't even used the ones I got for free last week w/ the free day of premium

Same with me! I do NOT need ANY GOLD consumables and ammo. Premium days, ok, but then it would be a good idea for players who have only time at weekends to add 2 packages of 3 days premium. Maybe that should be possible somehow.

Maybe WG should offer discounted "Multipacks" of 3 Days Premium which could be activated when you need them.

Gold ammo should be abolished btw! But that is different story...

What's the point? You pay for 1850 gold and get 7 days premium and some consumables for free. If you don't need repair set, sell it.

I guess I can't just grab the 1000 gold and activate the 3 days premium later, because I don't have much time for playing now...

Also if I select myself as a recipient, is the gift activated automatically or I can activate it later (just to be sure I don't waste the premium)?

As I understand it, if you send it to yourself it activates and you get the stuff straight away.

If someone sends it to you, then it activates and you get the stuff when you accept it (which you have to do within 30 days, or the person sending it gets it).

So get someone to send you the package if you want to activate and get the stuff within 30 days.

You can always sell the Gold consumables for credits.
The ones they gave away with the 1 day premium were worth 250k in total :)

You receive the reduced gold value of the tank. I accidentally did it once with one of the retail packs. I only got 1/2 the value of the tank, instead of the full value.

I did not think any of the premium tanks that have been reduced have matched any of the package tanks (so far).

Are you sure it was not the complete fubar that was the gift shop earlier this month?

I activated a retail box code at the same time that particular tank was 1/2 price in store.  I'd used retail box codes before and received full gold value - that time I received 1/2 gold value.  I'm assuming the 'gift shop to account' system will act the exact same why as 'bonus code to account' does: AKA both 'read' the value of the vehicle as it currently is, because that's what it is programmed to do.

The PzKpfw 38H735(f) has been reduced in the past? Must have missed it, do you know when that was, please?

I thought it had been removed from being available in the in game shop before the premium price reductions were introduced.

I realise that things are worth their reduced value in game when they are on offer (and that is why their in game sell values are also reduced), but a gift shop package (and/or the retail package) is a fixed package bought for real money that can be used over 30 days (or longer for retail). If you get less than that then someone is being conned.

I play on the US server.  Our retail box is the T2 light.  I made the mistake of activating one of my codes when the T2 light was on sale.  And yes I was annoyed, because I'd used 'real money' to buy the box...but what can you do, I shouldn't known better.

Could you give a rough date when that was as I thought the reducing of premium tank prices was only a recent thing, and cannot remember the T2 being reduced?

Also, do you know if the NA server retail box is still available and/or have any links to its sale (online or in store in the USA), preferably including a description of it's contents, so I can include it here.

Thanks.

Check on amazon: http://www.amazon.co...37272032&sr=8-1

I bought 2 packs - I think it was little cheaper when I did.

I'd have to say I did this about 6-8 weeks ago?

Here is what the code normally provides:

1 T2 Light Tank (750 gold value + 300 gold for the extra tank slot)
1 week Premium account (1,250 gold)
1,050,000 Credits (2,625 gold)
1,800 Gold
