Look here.
Price ranges for Cartel Coins are $4.99 for 450 CC to $39.99 for 5500 CC.
It's amazing how loud a dollar can be.

I was wondering if we could exchange cartel coins for game time or is that out of the question. I do not have a character on a pts so the only information I have on it, is from these forums and have been unable to find out if this is possible?

Someone who wants to. Just because it might not be worth it to you, given your economic status and the value you ascribe to these virtual goods and services, does not mean that someone with different values and circumstances thinks the same.

You'd be suprised...

the Turbine model in DDO/LOTR offers packs around the same price for their ingame shop money and they are quite popular (particularly when they have bonus sales that give additional shop money for the same price)...

Some people really like to feel like they 'own' a game as opposed to 'renting it'. The key advantage about this if your sub lapses or you lose interest in a game you can easily come back in, say, 6 months and still have access to everything without having to resubscribe...

I will be looking very hard at the F2P model and if works out I can effectively buy access to what I need for the equivalent of 6 months sub or less (including my existing CC balance at launch) that is the way I will be going...
