I think it's important to remember that once you get your gems back, it's just profit all the way indefinitely after that initial investment. Even if took you an extra month to get the gems back because you can't log in every 12 hours to collect the gem, again, if you see yourself as someone who will play for a long time (as I do), then it's definitely going to pay for itself many times over. $35USD isn't worth much to me so I didn't really need to think twice about buying it with a 30% off gem sale. Everyone has a different idea of what's worth spending money on and what's not, what's expensive and what's not.
That's a good idea - reinvest the profit of gems from one dispenser into more gem dispensers! But time it well so buy it when there's another 50% off promotion! I'll be keeping that in mind. Thanks for the tip! :)
Yeah..not enough info. And, it's no longer on sale. It's now 450 gems. I want it badly but would have to pay cash for it being my gems get stolen at 10 or above by the pop ups Storm8 refuses to fix. All they have to do is put up a "Are you sure you want to purchase coins......" So, if i had bought the Gem Dispenser when it was on sale I would have paid apx. $35...don't think so.
I agree, but I wasnt lucky enough to have a 30% off gem sale. Not even 20% off. For that reason I didn't buy it. I cannot afford to spend $50 on a gem dispenser. It's disappointing the sale ended so quickly, only giving certain players a chance to have a gem sale.
Go to your design tab. It should be the first decoration there for 450 gems. The offer to watch 2 videos for 2 free gems per day is an offer given to random player accounts. Not everyone gets it. You may have got the offer to watch a video to speed up your baking time but you also may not have. These offers are completely done at random unfortunately.
I think you also have to have the updated ios version of the game to get the gem dispenser ,the one that everyone is saying is buggy.
Wonder if that is their way of stopping people from using both systems?
I'm super sad I missed out on this. I have an Android and don't check this forum enough to have known that there was this release... but I could have totally gotten one from my old iPhone. I have just enough gems :P
I hope they give android players a chance to purchase it for half price but I know it'll never happen.
In answer to some questions on the gem dispenser:
1. The item is permanent and you can collect from it forever, as long as you are in a supported version (see #4).
2. It will only hold a maximum of 1 gem. To get the most out of it, you should collect from it as close to every 12 hours as possible.
3. The gem does not expire if you do not collect it. It will just not accumulate any additional gems until it is collected.
4. It is only supported in iOS 1.7.6+. It is not supported on Android.
I wasn't able to take advantage of the discounted price, but am considering it at its regular price even though it will take longer to recover the gems.
Can you tell us why only old gets it?
Is the 30% gem Sale still going?
Not getting the gem dispenser yet because I'm still doing food for gems.
I have missed the sale last week :( :( :( :(
There's no way that anyone can know. You'll just have to hope that it does go on sale again at some point. I bought one in the sale but I'd love to get another couple of them sometime.
Not cool I didn't know that. :(
I like to get the gem dispenser but I don't have 450 gems to buy it lol. I have mastered all the recipes so I don have any more gems to earn. :(
Anyone else who is getting the offer to watch 2 videos for 2 free gems noticed they increased it to 3 videos for 3 free gems now? I've been getting 3 gems everyday for a few days now from this offer.
