I'm looking at a couple of the vehicle bundles in the store for cash rather than gold.  If the bundle contains a vehicle I already own, will I get a refund in gold or credits?  And how much would I get for the Lowe, for example, if the bundle is 53% off?  Thanks!

You’ll get the full gold value for the Lowe...

Doesn't seem right to me as that would be a cheap way to get gold if it works and WG is unlikely to miss something that obvious...or at least you'd think.

Are you sure? If they are part of a discount package you will get the gold equivalent of what the tank is being sold for in the package, not the 100% value of it in game.

 

If you were to get the full gold value of them I would buy the packages as I already have all the tanks.

You don't get gold compensation anymore. You get the full vehicle value in silver. It's usually cheaper for silver to buy the 10k/10M package from the Prem Shop. 350g/$ equivalent. Once you convert the gold, it amounts to 14M silver for $100. Or, 1.4M silver is ten bucks. That's the "baseline price" for silver, at least to me. That's the way I think of it.

 

And for all those who think this is all stupid and no sane person would ever buy silver, that's fine. You do you. When you grind that silver, this is the rate you're being "paid", in game coin, to do that. For me, to turn 1.4M in profit takes at least several hours. That's a pay scale way under minimum wage. It's fine, if that's what you want to do. But it's also fine to do it the other way.

You get gold if you pay real money unless its otherwise specified on the premium shop page.

It was mentioned in another thread if you already have the tanks and bought them with real money then you get gold value including the discount ie if it's discounted 50% then you get 50% gold value.
If you already own the tank but got it as a reward somehow then you get credits.
The poster included links but I'm on my phone and not my pc.

I bought the base Tiger 131 package yesterday (I already had the tank from a previous real-money purchase) and got 3900 gold since I already had it.

PSA: the more recent Twitch Prime bundles are only giving partial gold compensation for owned vehicles. By comparison, I've bought many bundles that give full compensation, such as "war chest" bundles.
