WG thank you for the 30% off coupon, but next time could you take ALL the ludacris restrictions off of it first so I can use it on something I want or need and not things I already have.  Also the 72 hour use or lose sucks, but then again it was offered by you so what should i have expected.

It seems you go out of your way to piss off your player base.

So the next time you give one of these out, allow it to be used for ANYTHING in the Premium Shop and if your going to set a time limit on it, set either for 30, 60 90 or 365 days not 72 hours.  What happens when you send it to someone who hasn't been paid yet?  You just screwed them out of the coupon, or was that your intent in the first place to save money?

Many coupons from many stores don't apply to already discounted items.  Not just a WG thing.

I am all about that coupon and am going to use it today.

Tip: It can be used for doubloons, which can then be used for whatever.

I understand, but I also understand that they are just trying to get to you spend no matter what.  My issue with WG is their prices are to high, they pad everything they sell and give NO real discounts.  So if they want my money, even my discounted money, then offer me things I want and not what they are willing to part with.

For sure spend your money on what you want, or don't, no doubt. 

That said, again though, you CAN use the coupon for just about whatever you want.  Use it to get 30% off doubloons then spend those doubloons on whatever it is you want.  Now, next year, whatever.  You will end up with 30% off the thing.

WG didn't raise the price of everything to compensate for the coupon or something, it is a discount over their normal pricing.

They usually don't count for bundles... but just for fun, I clicked on the Ark Royal Sam bundle and it showed up. Used mine, so I cannot check for restrictions.

It for sure applies to just the ship in the store.  Would come out to $17.

I signed up for WoWs right at three years ago this week. Was couponized with a 30% coupon last night.

Heck you can buy a buttload of doubloons at 30% off, then head to the armory and use those discounted doubloons to pick from the expanded ship selection at a further 25% off with the armory premium ship coupon.

Yepper.  If you were planning on buying something, it isn't going to get any cheaper than this.

Yes, you can do exactly that. With this update even more ships are available via doubloons in  Armory.

Or, if converting Free XP is someone’s thing, buy said buttload of doubloons at 30% off, then, take advantage of the current 35:1 conversion discount, which gets you 40% more Free XP from those cheap doubloons.

This can approach Christmas sale discounts, without the Christmas bundling.

 I will agree, however, with the OP’s point about the three-day usage window. A coupon period of a week can strike the happy medium between WG’s drive to get impulse buys, while letting the customer choose better what to use it on.

Something in the shop? Or is this coupon related to the bonus code anniversary redemption?
