Something that we have seen many times is that a lot of players who are willing to spend money on the game, wait until they completely run out of passes, items, Pokeballs, etc. and after that buy whichever box or item is available at that given time. Another thing that is common is that players buy coins when they need it, often in $20 increments. This is actually not good, because you are overpaying.
Players from the US who pay $100 get 14,500 coins ( 145 coins per dollar of credit). The second bundle is 5,200 coins for $40 (130 coins per dollar) and the lowest bundle which is 2,500 coins for $20 (125 coins per dollar). If you purchase 5 separate 20$ bundles, you will get 2000 fewer coins than someone that will pay $100.
If you decide to do this, and afterward spend them on passes at the non-box price of 100 coins per pass, you will get 125 passes for 0,80 cents each. If you pay for the largest bundle and spend it on non-box passes, you will get 145 passes at a price of 0,55 cents each.
Now that the item storage is increased up to 2,500 items, it is easier to stock up for the entire year. To maximize savings, better prepare for this week. If you are financially able to buy them, you will save money if you spend your entire Pokemon Go budged on discounted iTunes credit, Google Play or Samsung deals this week until December 12.
NOTE: Some deals will end on December 2, some on December 12.
- $100 iTunes gift cards for $84.49
- $25 iTunes gift cards for $21.49
Best Buy deals
- $100 Google Play gift card for $72.89
Now, get ready for the best deal out there. Unfortunately, this is only for Samsung users.
