Questin about buying a Major pack from the US store... Thu, 20 January 2011 12:32
I am from Europe, but for me it is cheaper to buy a Major Pack from the US store in dollars. That's ok, but the question is - can I later use the bonus coupon of 30 dollars in the EU store? Will it automatically be recognized as 30 euros in the EU store?

I'm no expert on this, and I'm just taking a guess here... Smile

...but I don't think you can just switch back and forth between Euros and dollars when it benefits you the most. If it's cheaper for you to buy the Major Pack in dollars, then I suspect you'll be stuck with a coupon in dollars. Sorry, I'm sure this isn't the kind of answer you were hoping for... Confused

Maybe someone with unspent 30-dollar coupon can make me a favor and check - go to the EU store, try to buy something and see whether the the coupon appears in dollars or euros.

Went the the Euro store added 40 euro of goods, applied coupon, 10 euro left to pay.

No. If you buy a Major Pack in $, you will get a $ 30 coupon, not a 30 euro coupon. Now there might be a bug in the display (based on Phread's recent post) but a $ coupon will not work in the EU store. It will be rejected.

Then there is most certainly a bug, it showed a 30 euro discount for my US$30 coupon.

Sorry to everyone else who might now lose out because the bug has been found. Mad Shocked Laughing
