# 1 C-Point Gifts Codes

03/02/11: Now available: http://www.startrekonline.com/ataritokencards

The original point of this thread was to ask for C-Points to be giftable to another player. As of 03/02/11, this is now possible! Yay!

Here was my original post:

I wish there was a way to send C-Points to another player as a gift.

I have friends who play STO, and I think it would be nice to send them some shiney colored pixels for the holidays (yes, I start my Christmas shopping early, heh).

Ideally the way I see it work is that our own account page let's us purchase a "CP Gift Code" - same prices as normal CP purchases, so $6.25 gets you a code worth 500CP. Buy the Gift Code and the screen displays one of those long alphanumeric codes (or I suppose the game can e-mail it to you). Then we can send that code to anyone (or even use it for ourselves later if we change our minds). The code is typed into a player's redeem page and >poof< they get the CP.

I think this would be nice for any sort of gift-giving (holidays, birthdays, etc.), but also as rewards for Fleet Promotions, Player Sponsored PvP events, etc.

Any chance of something like this happening in time for Christmas 2010?

I'm all for gifting either CP, or the actual items (you basically would open someone else's C-Store for purchasing, but would use your own CP).

Yeah, that would be another way, if the C-Store had a "gift" check box or something, you buy and if checked, you're prompted the account name and the item is mailed to the player. Cool idea.

This has been mentioned in a few different threads and I think it's a superb idea.

I'm not surprised that it's been mentioned before. I am surprised Cryptic hasn't made it so.

Hopefully some day. >sigh<

And as some one else said (I think in a diff thread about this topic), I'd bet the bean counters would prefer it happen before Christmas.
