Character Transfer Sale?

General Discussion
Any chance someone from Blizzard could let us now if we'll be seeing a sale for character transfers anytime soon? I've love to transfer a few guys to my main's server but it'd be $55 a character now that I'm playing Horde and my wife would kill me.

Then don't do it.

I'm not, hence asking if we could expect a sale anytime soon. :P
That would be fantastic. It's a bit steep right now, and I'd like to get all my characters on one server. Not trying to escape a dead server or anything, but I've made characters to play with friends and then they left, so now I have stragglers chillin' on a random realm.

Looking at my account Blizzard's probably gotten about $1000 from me over the course of the past 7 or so years. Unfortunately having gotten a bit older and accrued a few more bills I just can't spend that money bringing some guys over Horde-side.

I just wasn't sure if the sale was a holiday-only deal or what was going on with that.
While a sale would be awesome for everyone, it would make me very sad. I just paid to transfer servers.
It'd be nice to see a sale again. But it was slightly an annoyance to see one sale where it was a percentage off Faction Changes, then the next sale was a percentage off Server Transfers.

Ah well. Guess it works if you're doing it with multiple characters like I plan on doing soon.

Isn't that how online gaming services work? You pay full price for a game or service and the next day, it's on sale?

It's how any paid good or service works. At least for me.
Me too, Sandse, me too. :(

That's why I don't buy games on steam anymore unless it's during one of their sales.

Fool me once... Shame on me

Fool me twice and uhh... something something
Does anyone know how often these sales pop up? The last one I can find was a weekend sale July 2012. I would love to transfer from pvp to pve but I can't make myself pay $75 just to move my high level toons. That's what I pay for 6 months play time :(
If there were a sale, I might even be inspired to pay for some of my roommate's toons to move too ;)
I'd bet there are a ton of people who would jump at the chance to move characters in some sort of sale- you know, move 2 get 1 move free, 25% off, whatever.
Yes, a sale would be nice! I have two characters with faction changes that would cost me $110 to do right now. If they did a BOGO sale on that I would do it in a heartbeat!
