Sales will occur, where 4 Champions and 4 Champion Skins will have their RP cost halved (292 RP for 595 RP and 487 RP for 975 RP Champions and Skins). The sale will last for 3 days then a new sale will occur. In addition all non-legacy skins will go on early sale 4-6 months after release.
There have been occasions where a sale will intend to last longer than 3 days and/or have more than 3 Champions/Skins on sale.
Note that if a particular Region is undergoing some technical issues or a Beta, the sale's duration will increase. However, if the Region had a Beta, which caused Sales to not occur. A Sale will be held when the Beta is over, where all the Champions and Skins that were missed will be on sale. This occurred on the Russia Region, where a Beta was in progress and not allowing the purchase of Champions and Skins at lower price, but when the Beta ended, all the Champions and Skins missed were on sale.
To Use the Refund System
- Visit the "Purchases" tab of the League of Legends Client Store.
- On the left side of the screen, you will see your remaining refund credits (tokens).
- On the far right under "Action," select the "Refund" button.
- When the popup appears, confirm that you want to spend one of your three allotted credits.
Please note that the refund system reverses your original transaction. Meaning, it only refunds the exact type and amount of currency used to originally purchase the relevant content. Therefore, a player will receive BE back against an BE purchase or RP back against an RP purchase. This also means that if a player purchased an item on sale you will receive that same amount of currency back when your refund is processed.
There are a few limitations on how a player can use your self-service refunds:
- A player only get three refunds per account, per lifetime. Once a player has depleted their refund tokens, Riot will be unable to process any additional refunds against the player's account.
- Players can only refund Skins and Champions through the store feature.
- For Rune Pages, Bundles, and name change reversal requests, the player will need to submit a ticket for Riot to manually process the requested refund. If the player do not have any tokens left, Riot will be unable to assist them.
- Official Refund Policy only allows refund of purchases made in the last 90 days. Players are not able to request refund of content purchased prior to that.
- If a player wants to refund a champion and the player own skins for that champion, please note that the player will have to use tokens to refund all the skins for that champion before they are able to use a token to refund the actual champion.
