I got a response from Support. Even though my "anniversary" date was the 20th and I paid to renew my subscription from Nov 24th to Dec 24th, I don't get my stipend until the second payment goes through on the 24th.
I didn't reup specifically for the stipend, but it would have been a nice plus.
So in order to get my "early" 400 points they want $30 first. Nah, I'll wait for F2P thanks. :p Cancelled.
Stipend is in ^_^ now off to buy some BOff slots on my main ( I refuse to dismiss any of my BOff's I love them all )... and to set an example to Cryptic I'll be posting the odd's of me using my stipend to buy Red Lottery Tickets, I mean Red Gift Boxes and here they are.
Odds: 100% chance of me not buying the lottery tickets / red gift boxes with my stipend. Failed - got three red boxes and all turned out to be blue boxes I hate my self for trying.
I guess it could be worse, could of been the 30th or the 31st.
but for sure I ma not dumb enought to buy anything with the carpy odds like the Christmass box they put in the game. That gos for crew packs I beat the EMH is got almost as bad odds to get as the bug ship.
