Reviewed the figures: there’s something wrong here.

Refer to the “regular” gem shop figures in the screenshot below.

- Based on the smallest offer - 500 gems for $4.99 - we learn the undiscounted price per gem is $0.01, or $1.00 per 100 gems.

Everything else flows from that rate.

- Given that, compare the typical 20k gem offer below: 20,000 gems for $99.99. Note that it says “99% more”. But - that’s not because the purchaser gets "99% more gems when they buy. They are not awarded 40,000 gems! “99% more” means you are buying gems at a rate of $0.005 per gem, or $0.50 per 100 gems instead of 100 gems = $1.00. 20,000 gems at the base price in #1 above would cost $200.00. But in this case, you get $199.98 of gems for $99.99 - that’s “99% more” or “50% off” (which mean the same thing).

Now, extend this to the offers Avery posted above (I’ve included a screenshot of one to illustrate below) .

For example:

- An offer of 20,000 gems for $49.99 is advertised with “299% more”. $50.00 of gems at the base/undiscounted rate (100 gems = $1.00), would buy 5000 gems. But in this case, you can spend $50.00 and get 5000 + “299% more” - that is 5000*3.00, or 15000 - for a total of 400% of 5000, or 20,000 gems. Put the other way, this is 75% off sale, where the rate is reduced to 100 gems = $0.25.

I know that’s how this particular sale works because I used it 6 days ago. Presumably, that’s how the smaller and larger “xx% more” sales listed by Avery work. I got 20,000 gems for $49.99, not “20,000 gems + “299% More”/60,000 gems” or 80,000 gems. Believe me, I would know.

I’m almost (99.9%) completely certain that’s how these other sales are set up. I think the “329% more” sale (rate: 444 gems = $1) Mani mentioned above was for 20,000 gems for $45.00. No additional gems came with it. A great sale indeed, but not vaguely close to the “1933 gems = $1” rate he insists is the deal he got.

If I’m wrong I’ll gladly eat my words and hope for a sale like that, but I think the suggestion these sales are offering such huge sums are “confused” and may indicate they weren’t purchased, at all.

Now: please prove me wrong so I can ask Flare for 60,000 more gems.
