    why would a business try to induce to buy what you've already bought?
    seriously, you don't get economics at all...

    Blizzard have not issued ANY rewards/gifts for its loyal customers ever... thats disgusting considering the vast sums on money thier customers spend with them.

    I've been with my cable company for many more years than I have blizzard, and they earn way more money, do i expect them to give me something on black friday? Nope, should they? Nope. Would you believe they also run deals on their product year round for only new customers too? The audacity of a busisness

    Well, it's official. People will cry about anything. Even if it is that a company is giving 75% off on their product.

    SO its right to give the best offers to new customers and nothing at all for its loyal customers?

    I seem to remember mobile phone companies realising this policy sucked balls and now they reward their loyal customers with the same deals at new customers...

    Every other subscription based MMO has given out rewards to its loyal customers at some point, Blizzard are the only ones who havent.

    I guess customers of Blizzard get what they expect... if u expect nothing then u get nothing.

    People getting mad about Blizzard making money and then calling them greedy. It's almost like they're a company or something.

    I received a free copy of World of Warcraft (to share with a friend) back in 2011 "as a thank you for being a veteran World of Warcraft subscriber." I also received a Lil’ XT pet when they ended the subscriptions for World of Warcraft Remote in 2012 and made all services free ("our way to say “thanks” for being a World of Warcraft Remote subscriber").

    So, while they might not be things you would personally want, Blizzard has indeed issued rewards/gifts for loyal customers in the past.

    Companies rarely reward any loyalty at all. They mostly count on us to stay with them rather than invest our time in looking at alternatives and switching.

    This is way better than Rebecca Black Friday!

    I've never bought anything on the blizz store, how does it work ? When I buy the wow battlechest for example, will I get the serial numbers on my email, which I need to activate IMMEDIATELY on battle.net ? I mean, I want to buy it on black friday, but I dont want to play yet and dont want to waste the 30days for free....

    If you look at it differently, this sort of discount is good for existing players. While Bliz could probably do more and give out in game items to their loyal customers. New customers is only going to be a good thing for the game. new customers help to investment in the game. I will be buying 3 copies of the game on this special. Would definitely not have bought if there wasn't a special. IMHO, they shouldn't even be charging for the game or expansions anyway. Maybe a nominal fee for the game but definitely not for expansions. The subs should cover those. It's just a barrier to entry. Maybe a better alternative would be to include game time to the value of the expansion when people buy one.

    So can somebody give me the answer please? If the free 30 days will be immediately activated while I buy the WOW battlepack or not, I dont want it immediately, I cant play right now...

    You buy the product, and you're given the code/cd-key/etc to use when you want to use it. It's not turned into an active account with the 30 days running until you actually attach it to a Battle.net account.

    If you're really worried, select that you're buying it as a gift for someone else during checkout, that way it won't even suggest that you activate it.

    Dream on. Pretty much no company ever gives a "customer loyalty" discount on a subscription fee or a current product. Does your phone company have a customer appreciation 50% off your phone bill month just for no reason? Your cable or satellite TV provider? Your gas or water or sewer ever have a "discount loyal customer" month? Do you get 50% off of a mortgage payment every so often?

    The paid character services are totally optional and in general they are services that have the potential to detract from the game as a whole if widely used. So the "high" price is good for the game.

    If you are playing the game and paying $15/mo, you are a happy customer. Making the game cheaper won't make anyone playing it like the game better. What Blizzard does to keep customers happy is to work on the game.

    Just like all other companies, Blizzard only wants to give goodies to former customers in the hope that they'll come back and find something they like better this time.

    I have aome nagging feeling that there will be a lot more newcomers online this Thanksgiving weekend than normal. Sounds like an opportunity for RaF! (As I never was able to convert my dad to WoWisim, nows my chance!)
