Default Bonus Question

I apparently have $17 in Bonus Points that expire on 06/01/2020. How can I leverage those to purchase the P-51D in my shopping cart? It's not readily apparent how to apply those funds to my checkout?

Hi

Bonus rules can be found here https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...t/bonus_rules/

Attention!
On 1 August 2019 bonus system was replaced by ED Miles.
Bonus points can not be accrued any more and all existing bonus points will expire on 1 June 2020.
Bonus points cannot be exchanged for ED Miles or cash.
You can only spend the remaining bonuses on products released before August 1, 2019
The release date of DCS products can be found in the news.
hope that helps

Thanks for the response BN.. I did come across that page before and it’s...well...about as clear as mud.

Still have no idea if it’s possible to use my accrued bonus points for the P-51D (i.e. “participating in the bonus program”?) and if so, how to actually do so...

At this point I’ll just assume given the shift to ED miles those points are worthless and will just expire in a few months...

Thanks anyhow cheers

Are you asking about how to use these points in the purchasing process? Months ago, when the bonus points were still the only type of points, you could apply them in the next screen after checkout, as the last step before hitting pay. If I were you, i'd try to see if this method still works.

Hmmm ok. Yes that’s the question I had. I appear able to easily apply the ED Miles but couldn’t find any mechanism to use the Bonus points and this was after getting to the external system that processes credit card payments. I’ll take your suggestion and try again maybe I’m just missing it.

Thanks!

I don't have bonus points anymore to test myself, but I can see after hitting "checkout" you're directed to "complete order / payment" screen and then under the "order content" table there's a "use miles" button available nowadays. Bonus points button used to be located in the same place IIRC.

Yeah I poked around a bit today and couldn’t seem to find a way to utilize them whereas as you say the ED Miles option is front and center.

I think it may have something to do with the fact that all the existing modules are already steeply (50%) discounted.. that’s my theory at least...

Anyhow thanks for chiming in!
