Buy them with credits. I have only spent Cartel Coins on legacy unlocks. You can usually get most things for a reasonable price of the GTN. If you have a decent amount of credits, definitely use those.

Let me know if you have more questions.
this a great thing about getting the item that you want. all the super rare item basically sold at GTN. all you have to do is have minimum credit about 3-5 millions and often see GTN.
but the problem is how to get 3-5 millions?
JPLaro already told you to sell the pack rather use it. it's better to sell 15 packs for 300k credit rather open it.
with selling you can get credit about 4.5 millions for 15 packs and you ready to get the item that you want.
but if you try to open 15 packs it's very depend on your luck. if bad you will get nothing.

Cartel is worthless. I make my money crafting and wait for items to get posted at stupid low prices on the GTN or shouts. Best pull of what packs i got from CC (Never waste real money on vanity items) was that monkey pet, first pack when it went live.

When you buy packs you are gambling with your money. You might get lucky but most of the time you just waste your money.

My advice buy items and unlocks that you really want but stay away from the gambling packs since you can pick them up off the GTN . It is not hard to make 300-500k credits. Also set yourself a limit of money you are willing to spend per month and don't go over it.

yes it's not hard for 300-500k but it is hurt in a butt to get 3-5 millions though. lol
agree with limit your money spending per month.

Is it worth it? I'd say yes.... IF your a sub. You get those monthly grants. And I use those to buy CC packs then... sell them on the GTN. Easy 350K credits a piece.

some people buy one pack and get a Throne and Revan's Mask.

It's all about luck. But, as you know, the House always wins.

I used my initial subscriber's allowance to buy a bunch of Cartel packs, the more expensive variety; I didn't get anything terribly interesting to me. One thing I'd been hoping to get was that Covert chestpiece for my Sage, and after I'd opened all my packs without getting it, I took a look at the GTN and found a whole bunch of them starting at around 3K credits.

I'm thinking I'd be willing to buy something that isn't random, if they put up a suit of armor or something that I really liked. But I'm not terribly interested in those random packs anymore.
