Then I would really like the option to pay in US funds. My financial institution doesn't charge me any fees on paying in foreign currencies.

After weeks of debate, you finally decide to make the commitment and purchase the Lifetime Subscription......

.... 3 hours later.......

Lifetime Subs 20% off!!!

..... 1 minute after you find out......

DOH!
Try calling customer service with both. They may be helpful. I don't know personally, but that may be something they can help with.

If I had the spare cash I would pick up a second lifetime account, for my girlfriend's son. He has been playing playing a trial account and loves it, and he has only seen one episode of Enterprise (Broken Arrow pt 1) and the Abrams film.

Sadly there was a dev post on the CO forums saying that the points gained from the stipend were going to be game specific, meaning the points you are given in CO can only be used in CO. Points that you buy normally can be used in both games though. I'll see if I can dig up that post.

Edit: Found them.

gonna do it if its back at 299.99 when taxes return, now why would anybody buy a lifetime to a game that is F2P? does the lifetime for champions mean new content will still come out for it? do you get better stuff that in 1-2 months the F2P players can cp purchase outa the CS?

I gotta tell you the pre orders that are now in the CS for STO kinda sucks, why did anybody pony extra dough just to have it CS purchasable 1-6 months later? That is the only thing that makes my head spin on this game.

I play SWG and no rewards are later purchasable from sony in any kind of store.

CAD: 247.19
GBP: 153.99
EUR: 174.99
DKK: 1300

Please note that these prices do not include any taxes (such as the VAT) that we are required by law to charge in addition to the price we've set.

I'll update the OP to reflect those prices.

Being rude and arrogant (as your post was) is never necessary. No one is forcing you to play this game, pay for anything, etc. so it is your choice.

As it has said a few times, the c-store allowance you get in CO doesn't follow to STO :p
