Top Tips for Smart Shopping

1. Avoid Impulse Purchases

With 48 pages of mounts, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and make quick decisions. Take your time to browse all options and prioritize what you truly want. You don’t want to regret buying an early choice when a more desirable mount appears later.

2. Ensure You’re Buying the Right Item

Be cautious of pricing errors and incorrect images. For instance, the Dune Sea Bantha is listed at two different prices due to a bug. Always double-check the item details and preview the mount to ensure it matches your expectations.

3. Compare Prices on the GTN

Just because a mount is on sale doesn’t mean it’s the best deal. Check the Galactic Trade Network (GTN) for listings of the mounts you want. Sometimes, they may be cheaper with in-game credits than Cartel Coins.

4. Sell Your Spare Mounts

Take advantage of the market surge by selling any extra mounts you have in your Cargo hold. With the increased interest due to the sale, now might be the perfect time to offload those spares for a tidy profit.

5. Buy to Re-Sell Later

Investing in rare mounts during the sale can be a lucrative strategy. Even though these mounts might not be as rare post-sale, they can still fetch good prices if you’re willing to hold onto them for a while.
