If you buy a tank in the bond shop then sell it for credits, can you rebuy the tank for bonds?

Just curious.

Sounds like the worst way to make credits

 

I'd think you can reclaim it from the store for the credit cost, im sure they'll let you buy it again as well but why even bother unless you had some unholy amount of bonds. Using them for bonded equipment would be more practical.

I don't see why not, but why would you?

Based on the Support website and staff comments made in the past, you can either rebuy it in-game or submit a Support Ticket to have it restored, but in those cases you pay the credit amount you received when you sold it.

With the holiday ops thing going on and boosters you shouldn't have to. It takes along time to get bonds then credits. And if you do sell the tank it may only be available for 3 days unlike some that are forever.  I wouldn't want to take that chance.

No offense, but at 49% WR, Bonds are too hard to accumulate - save them for equipment on a good T8 tank

Credit reserves and a tier 8 premium tank is a more practical way to gain credits. I have over 35k bonds and would never think of buying a bond tank just to sell it.

Bonds are way too valuable to do that. Don't ever. You could, however, find out which tank for bonds would be the best for grinding credits. Some tanks can pretty easily make near 100,000 credits per match... 10 matches and you've got the 1 million that you might get from selling it.

I'm gonna go with this too.

 

I'm also gonna guess OP has no use for bonds or needs silver.

 

I'm with most others in this thread OP.  I suggest you hold onto those bonds as they're a more valuable commodity than silver.

 

But it's your decision to make.  I'm gonna guess worst case scenario that you can handle them per a ticket in the quoted passage.

 

VRT policy which should cover a worst case scenario, https://na.wargaming.net/support/en/products/wot/article/23827/

 

The exception policy was changed when they added the VRT and essentially split.  Here's the other half of what replaced it, https://na.wargaming.net/support/en/products/wot/article/19495/

 

Note:  That second support article is the  link for the exception policy which I had bookmarked.

And if you need credits this badly, I suggest you do the following:

 

In your Garage, above the top in the list of things you can click on, click on Depot.

 

In the Depot, examine all your currently OWNED tank modules (this includes: Tracks, Turrets, Guns, Radios and Engines) and see what you have available to SELL for credits.

 

Also, be sure to look through your Depot at your Ammo stores.  (This will include all the ammo you purchased for tanks and guns you no longer use) and SELL that off for credits as well.

 

Now, go back to your Garage Page and pick a tank, any tank and then select Exterior under the tank where you can place all your camo, emblems and insignia on your tank.

 

Click through all the possible choices of these and decide if you wish to SELL all those emblems, flags, insignia and inscriptions that you can SELL for credits to breathe new life into your credits account.

 

If you are credit poor to the point of thinking about buying a tank for bonds, selling it and repurchasing it, then you can make more credits via the methods suggested above.  Buying a tank for bonds to sell off is an Official Bad Idea, even if you can repurchase it with bonds.  Very NOT cost effective as methods to generate credits go.

Update: I sacrificed my M10 RBFM for science. If you sell a bond tank, you can only recover it via credits.

Buy a tank with the hardest to get currency to sell it to get the easiest to get currency.

Seems legit.  Are you a voter?
