Actually, I am in the same boat, I bought STO when it first came out and I was working in the United States

maybe next time I purchase zen during the promo and it doesn't come through, I'll start bugging PWE about it

You always have to purchase the ZEN over the PWE Website to get the Promosion.
If you buy over Steam or an other Partner you won't get the promotional ZEN Bonus.

Not a big fan of zen sales, no c store sales? Must be to prevent those of us that have stipend from receiving any discount.

Or the other way around: they sold a lott of these ships and now they want even more people to buy it.
I would agree with you if they would put the ship itself on sale

Stream is listed as one of the partners participating in this promotion. Please check out the article linked in the first post There was a small delay with the Steam promo starting though, and all accounts that purchased a qualifying amount between 3PM PST yesterday and when the promo was activated with Steam a couple hours later has been credited in-game as of last night.

Also, this ZEN promo is not just for STO, it's all games if you look at the different PWE game websites.

Cheers,

Well they're not going to put their hot new product on sale a week after it was released are they? Can you imagine all the demands for a 15% refund from early adopters?

Besides, since when has a company that's released a new product that's selling well reduced its price? This is Cryptic/PWE we're talking about here.

Of course, a sale on Zen is effectively a sale on everything in the C-Store so it doesn't necessarily mean anything (other than the Cryptic feels it's time we gave them more money).

When the Vesta was introduced, they did a ship sale - but the Vesta wasn't included in it - that's more along the lines of what I'd expect if the Andorian ship was selling well.
