So, something changed..  when you finish top on XP you get (or can get?) a discount coupon for the premium shop. I got one for 20%. Pretty nice, huh? 


EXCEPT:

 

It's not valid for gold or specials.

 

That leaves premium time and premium vehicles that are always available. Still not bad.

 

EXCEPT:

 

Like most people, I buy 30 days of premium at a time. It provides the best balance between bang for your buck and not wasting money if you decide to quit WoT for a while. And WG doesn't offer 30 days of premium as a standard purchase, they haven't for quite a while now, they bundle it up with a silly premium Swedish light tank I don't want. But it counts as a special so I can't use the coupon.

 

Tl;dr I got a coupon I can't even use properly.

 

GG. At least make such a coupon valid for everything, no need to be greedy, you're selling digital goods for almost pure profit. If I could've used it for gold or specials you would've convinced me to spend money, today! But I can't, so no money from me.

Well, the usual workaround suggested on the forum would be to buy a tech tree premium tank you already own (and which is not discounted in game client) and you get the value in gold.

 

I been getting the useless 30% off coupon at times, but haven't bothered to use it at all, myself. Thanks WG :angry: reaaallly goddam appreciated!

Just got a 10% discount coupon and everything is on sale already, even gold and premium time. Fantastic timing.

Still it got me to look at the premium shop which I guess is the point.

Me too. What a bizarre offering. Get a coupon for the premium shop you can't use. Well it's one way of getting me to not spend money. Have a coupon you can't use in our shop!!

Thankyou WG for your assistance in this. I was wavering….

Got myself a - 30% coupon as well, but couldn't find anything sensible to spend it on as I still have ~500 days of premium left.

 

Great special offer.

There should be possibility to cumulate discount. 2 days ago I have to 10%. Valid as I remember 5 or 7 days. For premium tanks only... But I do not want it... Great useless gift :-) Well... let's suppose suddenly I want something cheap - tier 4 - 5, price 30 PLN. So about 3 PLN discount, so I can buy one cheap beer. Damn! Fantastic! I love it! It was so huge saving! :-D

I got a coupon on my alt account today.

 

10% off on bundles costing 30 or more...

 

I wouldn't even use such a coupon on this account, let alone an experimental alt account.

The best way to save money is not to buy anything at all. The 100% discount on nothing whatsoever is available at any time. WG keeps throwing discounts at you, so don't worry if you don't use your coupon, a new one will find its way to you, eventually.

Yeah, i got those discounts like 4-5 times and never used it on anything. I still have gold left over from the boxes, i have half a year of premium time. And i got all the tanks from the shop that i want. Pretty bad design  if you ask me, i'm sure there would have been plenty of players buying something if the discount would apply to everything.

 

It's also annoying even if the  tank/ is not on a discount but it's a time limited offer still can't use it, pretty dumb marketing plan and if i was the boss in WG i would fire the guy who came up with such a stupid idea.

The 30% discount on 1 year premium account is ok.If your cheap and say i cant get 30 days minus 30%. But the limited offers you cant use the coupon is annoying.

At this stage of the game you'd have to be a complete, utter..   there's no word for it, to buy a year of premium at the moment.

Sad but true.

 

Tricking (deceiving!) someone into buying something they don't want. I believe the actual correct term for that is a "scam"? 

 

We're being scammed by WG.
