    as far as I remember they have crown sales just around the time they release a DLC or was it during Black Friday? I don't remember. But it's usually 50 off. Just wait abit there will be one eventually.

    Where is this 'Crown Sale'? I believe it's against forum rules to make false statements on the forums.

    well, I saw PS4 sale, so I checked the store for PC (I have other stuff on my ps4, not TESO)

    and while there is no advertised sale, the prices are the sale prices that I can see?

    I'm pretty sure 5500 crowns don't typically sell for $23.99 , 1500 for $11.24 ,etc - those prices do correspond to PS4 crown sale one as well. so... I'm actualy thinking of buying some, while the price is so nice :) (and yes, when you click them, it says PC/mac only) so I'm definitely looking at the right store.

    Prices are reduced on the website store in the UK too. A 5,500 crown pack, which is normally £24.99 is currently £14.39.

    Which makes me wonder why they don't advertise these sales?

    I've just checked the official website and Facebook and I don't see anything on there about a crown sale, in spite of having an article entirely about the crown store posted today. Even on the store itself there is nothing to indicate that the price is reduced. If I hadn't seen this thread I wouldn't have even looked and if I didn't remember the normal prices I wouldn't know that the ones currently displayed are lower.

    All I can think is it's either extremely poor marketing or they actually don't want people to know about the sale, which makes no sense at all.

    is there some way to buy multiple crown packs instead of having to make a separate transaction for each one?

    i realize implementing a website 'shopping cart' is a difficult and revolutionary proposition, but i'm sure zos could farm it out to someone, no?

    It is the same reason they don't advertise in advance, they don't want people saving up for sales, they want them to buy at full price. More people buying at full price is more revenue versus people buying them at discounts. Just this morning I bought three full-priced 5500 packs... if I had known that a sale was coming, I would have waited... and ZOS would have lost money.

    It would be nice, I agree... but you have to figure, the ONLY time people buy multiples is during sales... otherwise, people tend to only buy one pack of Crowns at a time. On the plus side, at least each purchase assigns a different number so that multiple credit card transactions don't get flagged as possible fraud or duplicate charges.

    It appears to be until August 7th on the XB1 ..... I saw this when I selected a crown purchase. It showed the full cost, the discounted price and also stated till August 7th .....

    I just bought 2 5500 crown bungles through steam. I was charged properly, got receipt and everything, but I don't see the crowns in my ESO account page. Unfortunately, due to the maintenance, I cannot log into the game to check if the crowns were added.

    Anyone else experiencing this issue?

    UPDATE: never mind, just got added after 30 minutes delay after the purchase.

    In that case why bother having a sale at all?

    It's not like they're competing with other retailers or need to clear out stock, so the only reason to have a sale on crowns is as an incentive for people to buy more than they usually would. (Case in point I had no intention of buying crowns any time soon because I still have some on my account, but since they were cheap I got a 5,500 pack anyway.)

    I understand not advertising it in advance, so people don't hold off buying them at full price, but I went looking after it had started and I couldn't find anything to say it was happening. If I hadn't seen players talking about it on the forum I would never have known it was happening and they wouldn't have gotten any money at all from me.

    If they want to keep it that quiet, and keep the number of people buying at the discounted price to an absolute minimum it seems to me they may as well not have a sale at all and let everyone buy them at full price.

    Edit: They are now advertising it on Facebook. But nothing on the main site and even the store itself has nothing to indicate that this is a sale price.

    Someone mentioned this in guild chat yesterday. The crown store lists the 5500 pack as $23.99 (USD) now, which is 40% off the price they list in support, and the Facebook post does suggest it's going on until 8/8. It's a little unusual though that I had to hear about it through the grapevine and check several places online before I was sure there was any sale going on.

    Usually ZOS makes Crown Packs sales around some events, like now there is a Quakecon running. Next sale will hit store probably with Gamescom event, so no worries guys.
