I tried the code on the Green Elemental Ring for the Airship, and the Lucky Green Hat, and it said it was invalid.

No love for the Irish.

Turbine hates Irish people. We now have proof! XD

Seriously. How tough is it? Implement a code. Test the code. It seems like they should go hand in hand.

I tried on a different character, and I tried dropping in a few things it shouldnt work on. No change.

It says now through the 17th, but I wonder if its early?

They are trying out the new code system they put in with the 8.1 patch. I wouldnt have wanted to purchase these things without the coupon, so in theory it is working they way they want it too. :p

The code is still not valid.

Thanks for the reports everyone - we are looking into the issue with the St Patrick's Day coupon, and will let you know when we've resolved the problem.

We have seen reports of successful redemptions. Can anyone confirm that they were able to use the coupon and receive the discount?

So at least it wasn't JUST my bad luck...

As per PM the other day Quartermaster. Tried for a Green elemental ring for our WS-S airship and the code was rejected.

Anyone get a successful green guild purchase at all?

Yes - I get discount 50% with Green Lucky Hat.

Just write 50PERCENTSTPATTYSDAY after I choice the hat.

Did you write it or copy and paste? I used copy and paste to put the code in.

I was able to buy the green guild ship hull paint for 50% off. But then I logged in with another character and tried to buy a sage armor kit and it told me I had used up my coupon. I then also tried to buy the green ship ring but it also said the coupon had been used up. Is that WAI? The ad didn't say the coupon could only be used once.

To make matters worse, after repeated attempts and restarting the client I now can't buy anything at all in the store. When I click BUY on any item it gives me the message: "System is not available. Try again later.", I tried restarting, rebooting, tried different characters and different servers but no good. It's been like that since yesterday afternoon. I filled out a support ticket last night.

This is a very good point. I thought of this and tried both, neither worked for me and my green elemental ring. And if the coupon only works for one (presumably) group purchase as others have said I truely wish they had made that more plain as well! Grrr...

Oh and BTW Qc-M I also tried for green paint as an alternate to the elemental ring, that refused to apply the code as well. I'm gonna go in now and see whats currently working (or not)

EDIT (some minutes later...) Nope still no joy and the store took an abnormally Looong time to load as well. Maybe we need to have St Pats day moved on to allow T-Bine to fix the code...

(Sarcasm warning. Reaching for mellow pills)

I've tried copy & pasting the code, typing the code, typing it in all lower-case and upper-case and it doesn't work for me.

1. I am trying to Purchase "Armor Kit: Royal 1 - Sage/Silver"
2. The first time I entered the code, I received an error message stating I had already used the coupon. I did not use the coupon, but I DID try on a preview kit first.
3. After the first error messaged I logged out and reset the client, now I get the message "The code you entered is not valid."

I havent purchased anything from the store since the Greater Hearts were on sale for 50% off (Tuesday), so I definitly havent already used the coupon.

Can we get a list of things that are supposed to be discounted? I dont think the sage armor kits were mentioned in the announcement, but neither was the green hat I was trying to buy. The Elemental Ring I was trying to buy was.

<UPDATE>
I just tried to use the code on an item that should not be eligible and it allowed me to apply it (well at least there was no "invalid" message; however, it did not take 50% off.

When I tried to purchase the item with the coupon applied, it said that the code was invalid and I had to go back and remove it. But it's curious that I was able to even apply it in the first place.

I was trying to get the Royal Sage/Silver 2, same issue. The store says it's not a valid code. I also tried typing and cutpasting.

Since this code has been inactive since yesterday and most of today - can the sale be extended slightly?

Its still not working for me.

I used the code for the green hat, but then it wouldn't let me purchase anything else with it. It says it was used already. Isn't that the point?

Good news and bad news for me. It will now let me place things in the cart when I hit BUY on an item, but when I go to check out it says the coupon has been used the maximum number of times allowed. I used it once yesterday before my store troubles. If the coupon is only intended for one use Turbine should really warn people in their ad. And if it is WAI, then that does a major disservice to anyone who doesn't have a shared bank since they wouldn't be able to make a group purchase with the intent of distributing the bound to account items to their other characters.

AZgreentea
03-17-2011, 09:07 PM
The code worked for me, but a second attempt told me I had redeemed it the maximum number of times.

So get what you want on the first purchase! :rolleyes:

We've increased the amount of redemptions per account to 10, and the coupon will be valid an extra 24 hours.
