I just made a post for making credits during Bounty Hunter Week:
Anyone else have any fun or easy or not-so-easy way to make credits? Thought it would be cool if we got some replies on guildies favorite ways to make credits.

Hi! My preference for making credits, at least during the months that I sub is crafting and selling on the GTN. My favorite commodity is Augmentation Kit MK-9. They're like the "Thneeds" in Dr. Seuss. Everyone needs them! I have four lvl 65 characters each with a dedicated role in the Augmentation Kit production. I sell them at rock-bottom prices, typically the lowest on the Harbinger and still make a substantial profit. On good days my toons also produce and sell lvl 208 earpieces and implants, and other raw crafting materials. I prefer this method because I often have three or four times during the day that I can logon for eight to fifteen minutes. I usually net about 200K profits for each login. Conceptually I prefer crafting to running Heroics because it feels satisfying to contribute to the Harbinger economy.
On months that I don't subscribe I tend to run the old dailies (Black Hole, Section X, Yavin, etc.) they're not as monetarily efficient as grouping for Heroics, but I somehow find them satisfying.
My overall FAVORITE method is to sell Dark Matter Catalysts by farming HM KP and EV, but that takes more time than I usually have at one sitting.
A couple more thoughts on making credits. First if you have a stronghold place the electronic safe decoration you get and hit it up each time you visit your stronghold. You only get a couple hundred credits from it but it's free credits. Secondly another plug for heroics, running them on a level 65 gets you the Alliance crate as well as the usual cash reward. Turn them in on Odessen for credits, armor (that can be sold), companion gifts (the level 6 ones sell for good money on GTN) and mounts (that can be sold for 25k each). I just finally reached Odessen yesterday and turned all the crates I had earned. Just the credit rewards and selling the armor I don't want I made a million credits. I still have to sell the companion gifts, mounts and the stronghold decorations on the GTN. So overall the Heroics pay not only the initial credits plus bonuses if you are in a group but the crates are a good credit source as well.
The best way I've found for making credits is a combination of Heroics and Dalies. Doing the bonuses of the heroics is the key. By picking one planet to do heroics on per day and running CZ, Black Hole, Illum and Ziost dalies (Oricon and Section X take way too long for me). Then selling all the gear and junk loot that drops I can usually make close to 500k a day, more if I sell all the crafting mats I pick up along the way.
