That's what makes them gambling packs. I got 7 in one hypercrate.
It's amazing how loud a dollar can be.

If you buy these packs for one specific, rare, item then you probably should reconsider why you are buying them and resign yourself to disappointment.
No, because if you don't care about the certs or reputation items, then everything in the pack is exchangeable for anything else. You might only get 10k credits worth of items, or 1 million, but if the item isn't what you wanted you can sell it on the GTN and buy the item you did.

I opened one since I just recently returned to the game and wanted to see what the contained. It had a mount and a weapon skin, neither of which I cared about. Selling them gave me enough credits to buy a Relaxed Jumpsuit set or a +41 level 10 crystal. Since they could be exchanged for a common currency, it was functionally identical to containing an item I did want.

This is not possible if you want the certs.

If you can't afford a few dollars per month then maybe you should play video games less and work more on getting a better paying job...I blow $10 on lunch every day and I am supposed to be upset over a few bucks for entertainment?

Maybe next patch they should step it up, and make the rep items and certs follow the normal rule of bound for a day and a half then you can sell them.

I wouldn't mind that for the certs, but don't agree on them for the rep items. Bioware might as well not bother with the rep component at all then.
