I mean I won't deny that I'm a tad put off that first time buyers have a choice of getting 500k. But I'll get over it I suppose.

But it seems like all of us that's in the middle (who don't spend Club Verge standards but aren't first time spenders) are being skipped over in these incentives. I know it's coming but come oooooooon. Is it really that hard to decide incentives for us? D:

I received a PM today from the "Admin" today telling me about first time cash buyers.

However, I'm confused considering I've spent a good bit in the cash shop already.

What's crazy is the rewards you can get for getting cash for the first time.

(I tried checking to see if this had been mentioned and I didn't see anything, but if it's been brought up before I don't want to beat a dead horse.)

-------------------------------------------------

"If you haven't bought Gaia Cash before, now's a great time to try it out! As a special, limited-time treat for first-time Gaia Cash customers, we'll include a Teal Bonus Box with your first Cash purchase of $5 or more. When you open the Bonus Box, you'll get a choice of three fantastic free items:

The Deadly Ansha item, which originally retailed for $4.99 in the Cash Shop.

A whopping 500,000 Gaia Gold, which you can throw about however you please in the Gaia Marketplace or Gold Shops.

Three Chance Items, which will each give you a shot at some of the rarest and most coveted items on Gaia!


----------------------------------------------------

It's a pretty interesting incentive to get GC, in my opinion.

Especially 500k just like that?


Hello!

Thanks for the thread. So sorry about any confusion this may have caused you, especially since you purchased Gaia cash before. I can see why that would be a bit disarming! Not to worry, it seems the message was accidentally sent to a LOT of people instead of just the first-time purchasers. D'oh!

Not to worry though, the issue has been fixed and if you DID get the offer and are so inclined to use it, you can get the Teal Bonus Box! And if you aren't inclined to use the offer, then that is totally cool too.

Hope this helps biggrin

Oh thanks, it did help!

I appreciate the swift reply. n_n

500k for just 5 dollars? Oh, I wish I could get that deal, but since I have access to Verge, it's not really an option. XP

Well, Sisky did say they are gonna have some incentives
for people who spend a lot and even for those who haven't spent
anything yet.. I guess this falls into another category of people
who made their first purchase of GC or so.

Honestly? People are sad that they don't get to have the box because
they have already spent lots on GC? I've spent nearly $1k on Gaia
in the past year. I'm not sad by this. I think it's awesome that you
can get a free 500k.

I can't even deal with some people on here anymore. emotion_facepalm


the rats in the c e l l a r you know who you are


Oh I'm not sad at all.

I'm fine with what I have on Gaia.

I just didn't quite understand why people that already got GC got the PM.

    Sorry! I didn't mean you. xd Just gathering from some other
    replies I have seen about this already..

    It's just crazy that people think one type of person can get a reward but
    then if the other gets a reward that they're not in on, it's all of a sudden
    bad. u.u

I am offended by it.. I've been a loyal costumer in the Cash Shop and I keep getting worthless rewards, and a first-time buyer gets to have 500k? NO WAY! Not fair at all!

Awww, don't be sad - you can deal! You can, I have faith in you! And yes, this is one of the ways we are trying to incentivize new spenders - hopefully it is something they like! biggrin


    That's true. If you can do it, I can too!

    I think it's great. If I was a new spender on the site, I'd definitely enjoy
    that bonus 500k. Gold speaks my language. xd

              i have never bought cash before... and since its only $5
              i think i might try it for this reward. which is better though,
              the 500k, or the three chance items? has anyone redeemed
              this offer already and can say which chance items they got?

    Guess I was never really good with my smarts then.
    Luckily you don't have to deal with me anyway.

    Oh well, I thought it was a nice idea since everyone is so up in arms
    over getting rewards/not getting rewards baw baw baww.

    Think I'll go back to lurking since I'm better at that. xd

Can we go on a mule that's a GC virgin and buy cash there to take advantage of the bonus, even though we've already purchased GC on our main? Or would that be considered abuse? I have bought GC before on some of my mules, out of convenience, with no problem--but this offer didn't exist before.

I want to buy a Hoarfrost and take advantage of this, but I also do not want to get banned. >_>

Likewise, I would have to agree. I can't help but think that prices of items will inflate.
I imagine booty grab/Zomg players will have a harder time getting what they want. Thus, people that spend will most likely get an even huger advantage compared to those that don't.

Regardless, it's still a little early to judge. Although, I can't deny it worries me a bit.

Thanks for the post! As for the inflation, that was considered when the Teal Bonus Box was created. For any drastic effect to take place on the economy, as I understand it, every single person would have to take the deal for any impact to be felt. True, I am not an economist so I could be totally wrong, but I don't believe this will crash the economy, especially since there are other ways of earning Gaia gold that pay out much higher dividends on an ongoing basis.
