Not so limited the TOS limited bundle AND with 20% off is it? It would have been sensible to either drop the limited part or exclude it from the sale. Yes I rushed out to buy it thinking if it was a choice between limited or 20% off the limited would win. Oh well just means I won't rush to buy other stuff then :p/.

People need to remember that the discount isnt on the price of the Atari points, its only on the amount of points required to buy the item. TOS pack normally costs 1400 points, but with the discount it only costs 1120 or something. The catch is, they only sell Atari points in increments of 500. So unless you already had 200 points, then you would STILL have to buy the 1500 point package which would STILL cost the same amount of RL money regardless of the sale.

Does the discount also apply when buying Atari points?

I really don't understand "Tax Day" sales.

If you are trying to get people to spend some money from their tax refund, then why have the sale when most people don't have their refunds yet?

In general, if you E-File, you'll wait about 2 weeks for your refund.

Traditional filing can result in 5-10 weeks before you see any money back.

So, wouldn't it make more sense to have the sale later on, when people are more likely to have the money you'd like them to spend?

See the post above yours.

No, it only applies to the items the AP buys. 1500 points will still cost $18.75.

Hey guys..

I have never purchased anything from the c-store before..and was just wondering to ask if there are any steps i need to follow correctly to make my purchases trouble free..lol

I guess with the 20% off sale now...its a good time to finally buy something..

Anyone have any good recommendations as well?
I was thinking of picking up the Multi vector escort & maybe the dreadnought cruiser...not sure..

Thanks in advance.

Is there still no way to access the C-Store without the game client? I'm out of town for the weekend and can't get ingame until sometime next week.
