My sub will run out in a few days and this month literally every penny counts, Bills, Food, Travel, Work expenses etc... so I cannot afford to continue my sub this month but will be able to in a few weeks.
What will I lose access to when my account switches to F2P ?

Lightning flashes of insight, Into the mirth of a dark sky,
Pain of division is nothing, Joy of dissolution is everything.

You'll go to a preferred account status. Just above Free to play.

This will probably help you more.

You will lose 2 Quickbar slots - 5 and 6 - so change any keybinds to suit 1-4 quickslots
Purples - Any toons not in pvp purple gear will lose the ability to use purples
You will be limited to 5 operations/flashpoints and warzones
You will only be able to select 2 crew skills and then your toon can only craft 1 item at a time
Credit limit - up to 350k credit limit

If you have pots of in game money, you can purchase these items on the GTN so the shock of going to F2P isnt so great.
to strive to seek, to find. And not to yield.

10 mil, but in that shop was also a 2 mil underworld relic.

Also prices in GTN can change, a lot, for good, or for worse
