Or was that a one-time promotional offer to thank current subscribers?

Just wondering if it goes Free2Play, if being a subscriber would bank anymore Coins?

Cool thanks. Wa wondering if I'd have to double-dip into my wallet to obtain more coins.

You will. That's the whole point--to get you to pay more every month. Say, for example, you get 500 coins this month. You see some nifty armor for your alt, but it costs 700 coins. You can wait a month--but by then your alt is already 50--or you can buy it and enjoy it now for just $2 (200 coins) more.

Did they state the cash price for cartel coins? I was looking for that.

There was a press conference call where they announce the price ranging from 1 dollar for 90 CC to 137 CC (you get more CC per dollar the more CC you buy in bulk).

Here is the link:

Also if you are subbed on the 15th November then you will also gain 250 coins as a bonus.

Cheers.

on my cc rewards page it has said i would get 850 on f2p-day for ages now but i just looked and it says 650. that's 3x150 for march, 200 for october (since i've resubbed for a coupleof weeks before f2p)... so do i now get another 250 on thursday to make it 900?

edit: nevermind i just read the http://www.swtor.com/free page and it seems i will get 900 after all, nice.

I subscribed 3 days before F2P and I got zero coins, guess I need to be a member for a whole month correct

I think the bonus coins were a reward for being previously subscribed, but if you were, you have a little longer to sub and still get the bonus coins you're alloted.

Regardless, anyone with a sub gets a free allotment of coins every month.
