Today I read on the coupon I received, ' The coupon is valid for 7 days from the date of the receipt and is not applicable to gold, special offers, discounted items and limited-time offers.' Is this new change or has it always been there? I remember buying discounted/limited-time offers with mine in the past. Or I am just becoming senile at my young age?

Nah, you are fine and yes they changed it so they are next to useless.

1º. Yes, they have changed.

2º. Yes, they are useless now.

no they didn't change, you just received a different coupon...

 

I received 3 coupons last 6 month:

~September, 20% only on bundles

~December, 30% on everything

last week, 10% on bundles (above 30€ )

I recieved the 10% on bundles above 30€ last week, it was supposed to be valid for 7 days but was only valid for two (2).

10% only above 30€, quite useless coupon if you ask me.

The coupon part I copied my line was from 30% coupon. So I can only assume now that they are constantly changing terms of coupons so it is probably pointless to discuss :( Thanks for the response though.

They did change it, but from what I can tell the "anniversary coupon" your account most likely got last year is 'special', in that it can be used for anything. A friend of mine's account was two years old in December, that earned him a 20% coupon for 'free use', including discounted items.

 

It's a bit dumb, but for random coupons it sort of makes sense that you can't 'double down' on your discounts, e.g. gold for discount in the 'shop and then buying a tank on discount in the tech tree. Heck, even better, spend your coupon on a tank you already have that is discounted only in the premium shop, get full gold value and then wait for an in-game discount. :P

Yes, lots of people recently got such limited coupons (me included), which you can't use for anything else but the tech tree tanks.

Edit: and premium time.

They changed it rather soon after you got cupons for epic medals. As you could use it on anything early on. I used my first one on a bundle that was already 30% off. So I got to for 60% off. I suspect they did not like that idea. And the next one I got did not work for any time limited discount offers or gold packs etc. So basically anything that's in the tank or premium day tab is your only options. As new premiums are in the special tab etc.

4-5 days ago got one:

 

30% DISCOUNT - WORLD OF TANKS

Enjoy an exclusive 30% discount on a vast selection of World of Tanks package - valid for 7 days only.

 

Vast selection? 

 

 

All but: gold, prem time, boosters, discounted, bundles and specials...

Oh wait... I can buy a tank? Rly? WOW!

 

Thank you, but not thank you. It is the same as the last one - and will rot away as the previous did.

I think you can use it on the premium time as well. Which might be useful when buying longer periods, such as 180 or 360 days.

Nevertheless, calling the selection "vast" is laughable.

Have they said anything about the 7 days turning to 2 in the shop issue?

10% of 30€ is a discount for 3€ on something you don't really want.

 

or in other words, you pay 27€ to earn 3€ on something you don't really want.

 

As Trump would say: not a great deal.

This was what I did with my 30% discount, but I guess that was not a random coupon.

Before they were useful because they were valid on everything.

 

Now they are limited to stuff no one wants so they've lost their value.
