Gems

Postby Rhianydd » Wed Jan 16, 2019 12:57 am

Why are the gems I collect from trades going into a piggy bank I then have to purchase? I used to get to keep them for free.

From certain boat trades you still get to keep your gems. Only where you see the gem big, beside the order, and with the amount for the trade, ie.x5.
Only boats asking for island specialty items give us gems. There will also be amount that goes into the piggy bank, ie.+6.

I don't remember Tradepost orders ever giving us gems though.

Befire the piggy bank, we didn’t get gems from Trading Post orders, and only from a few small boat visits. The gems going into the piggy bank are extra .

Piggy bank is yet another beta test. I had one for a couple weeks a while ago but it disappeared. It has shown up a few time since but only for a few minutes at a time.

Basically, it is just a catchy way of getting us to buy gems for real cash. The value is usually better than their regular gem bundle offers.

If you get the right gem piggy bank offer, it's a 70% discount off the regular gem price, so it can be a significant savings if you need to buy anything. The issue with it being a beta is there is 3 different price structures being offered, I have the 550 one, but there is also an offer for 350, and I think 250 or 260. Anyway, since everyone shares the cost of events on the forum, it wasn't long before those that saw the disparity between offers refused to participate. I can't blame them, why pay $2.99 us for 250 or 350 when someone else is paying the same price for 550. I know you know this BethM, but I figured you wouldn't mind me piggybacking on your piggy bank post. (Say that 3 times fast)! :lol: :lol:

My original offer was for 260, but the bank was gone more than it was there. Though I did eventually fill it up, I never bought it because of the inequity you mentioned.

Then it disappeared altogether for months. When it reappeared, it was the 350 offer, but had lost many of the gems I had accumulated earlier. It never stayed more than a few minutes at a time, then again disappeared altogether. That was over a month ago.

I got the pig offer also after not seeing it for a very long time... 350 gems for 2.99... plus tax, I guess!
