I want to get the HK companion and I only need a little under 300 coins. I also had wanted the Kylo Ren lightsaber but seen that it was almost 40$ worth of cartel coins yet tons of people have it. I have a hard time believing that people are throwing 40$ a this saber. How're people getting so many cartel coins?

By spending $40 on Cartel Coins and/or saving up their monthly CC subscriber awards.

There are ways to earn CC within the game, but they give relatively few,

What is so difficult to grasp? Some people like supporting the game, so they buy coins.
Some folks also subscribe, which grants 500 coins per month. You get another 100 per month if you have a security key on your account.

There are also several achievements in-game that grant a small amount of coins.
Which includes the the first time you complete each class story chapter (20 coins per chapter).
Eight classes, four chapters per story (prologue and 1 thru 3).

Here is a video detailing some of the achievements that grant coins.

Not to mention that the recent direct-sale of that sabre is not the only way people have obtained it. It was previously available as a very rare drop from some Cartel Market pack or other, and it is also possible (even more rarely) to get it as a drop from a Grand Chance Cube.

The very best way to get FREE cartel coins is to actually level your characters.

Eace class category, Knight, counsilor, smuggler and trooper on rep side, and the corrsponding warrior, inquisitor, agent nd bountyhunter on the imp side.
Eac of these have milestones you acheieve through leveling, I think theis actually adds up to 160pr character, on your FIRST time with the class.
Now add the 160 to the total of 8 classes ( for both sides) and then do the same on every server, even foreign language ones....for a total of now 5 servers.

so 160 x 8 pr server for free

CCs are given as revards in class missions at various points.

Now I could be wrong, but that is only in being too conservative.

80 per class per server, not 160. 20CC each for: starter planet, Ch1, Ch2, Ch3.
You also get 20CC for completing the starter FP (Esseles, Black Talon), once per faction.
And 20CC for completing starter space mission (Fondor Escort, Jabim Escort), once per faction.

So, a max of 8*80+2*(40)=720 per server
... and it'll take quite a while, so I wouldn't characterize that as easiest!

30-day sub gives 500CC month, 60-day 525 CC/mth, 90-day 550 CC/mth, etc.
Security Key (highly recommended!) gives 100 CC/mth.

Referrals are the other great way to get CC, but that's hit or miss.

Otherwise, spend real money.

Hope this helps.

By subscribing and also having a security key on your account you automatically receive monthly cartel coins. I usually save these until i see something i wish to buy from the cartel market
