Nothing. My free cartel coins I get every month are sitting unused on my account. Occasionally I buy an XP boost or a legacy unlock, but other than that nothing.
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

Very rarely, I'll pick up a full set, like the Eradicator's set. But, mostly it's little things. Quick Travel passes when I need to jump to somewhere pretty quick and don't feel like waiting for the CD.

To be honest, when it comes to CM stuff, I tend to wait and buy the stuff I want for credits and try to save my coins for big things.

Frankly, I do not believe you!
P.S.: Maybe packs for free?

unlocks and gear sets. I hate having to work my way through (what I consider) silly looking gear. I like getting a nice set from level 1 and outfitting with mods so my jedi/sith can look like I think they should.

and lots of unlocks for my horde of alts.

Usually packs–spread across several alts. However, I also buy the armor sets from time to time; rarely, but I do. For example, I bought the Valiant set for my Knight, and also on my Knight I bought a chest piece for Kira and Scourge. I also bought the Eradicator's set for my Warrior.

I think the new packs when they arrive after spending about $1500 on them over time, But now I won't put anymore money into the CM due to the materials you get with the new pack are old mats that can't be used for anything in patch 2.0 and this is a very bad move by Bioware.

I rarely spend my coins. I unlocked a race once. I may have used coins to unlock a perk if it was relatively few coins vs. a ton of credits.

Depending on the pain of the expense of re-customization, I might spend some coins on that. Otherwise, I'll keep saving my stipend I guess.

Mostly Character Perks, and inventory slots on new characters. The Major XP boosts. (But I'm hording those for leveling Alts.) And I'll buy a few packs, and the new armors that come out with a patch
CE Owner - The Gallifreyan Legacy - Squad 238 Tester
65 Gunslinger, 65 Commando, 60 Sentinel, 65 Shadow.
53 Operative, 54 Mercenary, 65 Marauder, 63 Juggernaut, 54 Sorcerer.

I usually buy packs of grain for my pigeons and shears for my sheeps. They love it! But I keep buying lawn mowers for myself.
