Gold membership gifts this weekend...

I'm intrigued! But most important - if you're on SC or game cards (non-recuring gold) you can go in and just set it to recurring for just the weekend to take advantage of this, change it back after the weekends over.

I wanted to be the first to let you know that we're giving everyone on a recurring Gold Membership some free items.

We'll have more information about this on Friday but when we release the news article and when the Email hits your inbox, it's going to tell you that if you are on a recurring Gold Membership under the 1 month recurring plan, we're giving you one of our Big Bags and some food and drink that gives some benefits. And if you are on a 3 month recurring plan or better, you're going to get a Bigger Bag + XP potions + Consigned Armor + Mercenary Contract and a few other potions, food and drink. If you're not signed up to receive emails, you might want to go into your account and click to receive the information.

Also, if you are not currently on a recurring Gold Membership Plan, there will be some additional information on how you can take advantage of this offer as well this weekend, starting on Friday.

A thank you from the EverQuest Team! (the items, not my leak of information...)

-Thom Terrazas AKA "Phathom"


If you picked Non-Recurring, you can still go back and change your account to Recurring and get the benefits. You won't be charged a new amount until your Non-Recurring time runs out as well.

I just switched to 3 month recurring to get the extra stuff and I'll just switch back to 1 month when I have it. Cool.

Thanks for the head's up on this. I'm keeping one account paid, but had done it with SC.

I wonder if that loophole of having a recurring subscription pending after non-recurring expires loophole will get you the 500SC a month as well.

I got my items, they'll be in /claim:

1 Golden Traveler's Pack, Heirloom 24 slot 100% WR Giant bag.
20 Milk
20 Cookies
5 Perfected Augmentation Distiller, Heirloom
5 Bottle of Adventure III
5 Bottle of Speed
1 Animated Armor Contract, heirloom merc turnin thing.
1 Consigned Complete Armor Bundle, heirloom box of gear.


Looks like you can upgrade to Gold to get it, if you haven't already:
Thinking about upgrading your Free or Silver membership to a recurring Gold Membership? Have a non-recurring Gold membership and want to sign up for the recurring benefits? If you sign up this weekend, 12:01 AM Friday April 20, 2012 through 11:59 PM Sunday April 22, 2012, you will receive a gift bag!*
Upgrade to a one-month recurring Gold Membership and receive:

One 18 slot bag
Stack of Food (20)
Stack of Drink (20)
Upgrade to a three-month or higher recurring Gold Membership and receive:

One 24 slot bag
An Animated Armor Mercenary Contract
Bottle of Adventure III (5)
Bottle of Speed (5)
Consigned Complete Armor Bundle
Perfected Augmentation Distiller (5)
Stack of Food (20)
Stack of Drink (20)
Already have a recurring Gold Membership? Don’t worry! Your gift bag is on its way. Those already on a 1-month recurring plan (including All Access) will automatically get the 1-month items. Those already on a multi-month recurring plan (including All Access) will receive the multi-month items.

Visit http://www.everquest.com/free to see what you else you can get for having a recurring Gold Membership. Just make sure you upgrade by Sunday April 22, 2012, to receive your gift bag!

*Items may take until Tuesday April 26, 2012 to be granted. This item grant is one per account.

I just noticed while updating the recuring stuff that an account I have set to recuring but put 3months on it during the last double SC weekend still got 500sc, just within the last ~week. Was checking it out for the Friday the 13th sale and now has 500 more. The monthly charge would have normally gone through around the 15th so it looks like it still gave me the SC for it.


Nice little loophole.

They do mention they're processing through the 26th, so it could take until then, but I'd petition/contact them anyway.

If you're on a 3+ month plan you should have gotten a Golden Satchel with the items I listed.
