Actually, it's a great time for a zen purchase... er, ship sale.

Lots of people are out Zen because they purchased the Kumari, so a ship sale would essentially be a enticement to buy more Zen.

The closer we get to the expansion, the less likely i would be to buy anything from the C-Store, even on sale. So, is PWE wants any more of my $$$, a C-store sale should happen sooner rather than later.

What do you know. ... another "zen" sale.... I think we may have seen the last of actual ship sales... but you can throw your money away on lock boxes since keys got a discount. ..

If there is a ship sale around May 21st I'll be a few Klingon ships for sure.

Well at least something positive came out of the ZEN sale. Gathered enough ZEN to buy 13 FSMs and trade them in for a lockbox ship via Exchange.

I'm starting to suspect this as well, that we might not be seeing any C-Store sales anymore. After all, Cryptic already has your money the minute you buy any Zen. The only thing a sale does is give you an incentive to spend whatever Monopoly money you're still sitting on and technically that doesn't add to their profit margins at all. So while I can understand the reasoning, I still find it to be a disturbing trend if it's true.
