First, thanks to Kalreth and Telanis for the heads up 🙂 I only got home now so yeah XD
So, according to this lovely support question thingy… well:
In addition to the Cartel Coins, each of our retail partners will offer an exclusive mini-pet that will be added to your account when you redeem your Cartel Coins Card here on this website.
The currently available pets are:
BestBuy: Arctic Manka Lynx – Renowned for its speed and grace, this Arctic Manka Lynx will loyally follow you on your adventures across the galaxy.
GameStop: Lobelode – The Lobelode is hardy and persistent, at home in even the most dangerous and exotic environments you could visit.
We hope to make Cartel Coin Cards available for purchase through more retailers and in more territories soon. Please visit www.StarWarsTheOldRepublic.com for updates.
Yep, that means BestBuy and GameStop will have special cards with the pets. From what it sounds like, they will be $20 cards so yeah. I haven’t seen any yet and there aren’t any on their websites, but I will be keeping an eye out and at the very least, update the pet guide.
I’m expecting the cards to start popping up closer to Christmas, but I’m sure some people will get them early.
