I have been playing SWTOR since launch but I have now just seen a local game store selling collector's edition boxes for cheap (comparatively). I'm tempted to buy one but I wouldn't really want a second account, I'd just want to upgrade my current account to a collector's edition one.

Does anybody know if it is possible to use the collector's edition key in some way to upgrade a normal pre-order account (the only bonus I have is the colour crystal, nothing else).

You can also just pay $20 to upgrade your account to Collector's Edition, which is probably cheaper than buying a separate Collector's Edition. You can do that here –  SaintWacko Mar 16 '12 at 16:47
    
@SaintWacko: I am considering it for the items in the CE box as much as anything but it is definitely a useful note for others considering a similar thing. :) –  Chris Mar 16 '12 at 17:51
    
Oh, Collector's Edition! My bad, I was getting that confused with the Digital Deluxe Edition. –  SaintWacko Mar 16 '12 at 18:40

Subject: Upgrading to Collectors Edition

As it has correctly been stated you will be able to upgrade your edition of the game.

If you wish to do this, when you have your product code, go to the code redemption area of your account and input the code. This will then upgrade your account to the relative edition.

You shouldn't apologize for answering your own question. It's even encouraged. –  svick Mar 16 '12 at 1:02
    
can I ask, if you do this, then is the CE code seperate from the product registration key? So could I buy the CE, apply the collectable bit to my account and then give the game to a friend to make a new account with? –  TZHX Mar 16 '12 at 9:31

@TZHX: I think that there is a single code for the CE. You can however apply it to an existing account which will upgrade it to CE and give you 30 more days of game time (so the same benefits as if it were a new account). I may pick up the collector's edition later though so if I find out differently I will come back and update. –  Chris Mar 16 '12 at 9:37
    
Attention: You will not get 30 more days when you tie the code to an existing account. The 30 days gametime apply only once per account. –  Tom Apr 3 '12 at 8:43
