120 gold bars for $5.49

[Post New]by Kevi1 on Oct 24, 13 4:24 PM
Hi, I had a nice surprise this morning. I got to buy 120 gold bars for $5.49 which is 3 times more than usual. I am curious to see if anyone else got this as my hubby did not.

Me neither ... Also haven't seen a sale on gold today.
The amount of 120 isn't even an option in my game....
8 gold for $ 0,89
40 gold for $ 4,49 .....
90 gold for $ 8,99
190 gold for $ 17,99
Etc.

Not to mention, the fact I actually pay that in Euro's !!!

Gold is now on sale, double the amount for the regular price.

PS: very interesting L_Amour. We have the same quantities, but with regular prices of $0.99, $4,99, $9.99, $19.99, etc.

Great gold sale! I was going to buy some today anyway, so I could buy the premium scene for chapter - 8 - I think. Twice as much for the same price. Wonder if my ??? machines will still produce?

I have a sale on at the moment, until 1pm Sat October 26th.
It is offering double the gold in each category but for the same price

Have posted pop-up and details in the Dark Manor thread here:

I'm so glad I saw this thread!! Thanks for the heads up.

The sale I have the prices are the same as always, but the quantities are doubled what they usually are.

How do you know how long the sales will last, though? I can't for the life of me ever see any indication of when they're scheduled to expire.

I'm playing on a pc w/ no Facebook or Game Center, maybe that makes a difference.

The information is contained in the pop-up within the game, which all players should get but patently don't. Whatever you're playing on, you may not see it if you don't logout and log back in.

This is why Deegb and I have been posting screen shots of the pop-ups at Pond Friends so that people can check the detail if they wish (sometimes there is room for rather a lot of interpretation...).

It says 1pm, I assume that's PST as usual, but it doesn't actually say....

Thank-you, Frogmort.

Good to know, it's def not my ignorance ... There's never been anything like those in my game -- no matter how many times I've logged in & out. Now I know what these tournaments are that y'all have mentioned in the forum, too.

Looks like Pond Friends is the place to be! I'd better bookmark it, so I'll be in the know, too.

Bump: just also noticed the goldsale
Same as you, same price, double amounts of gold

@Deegb: FYI: my prices are prices in Euro's, they are already exchanged by Apple
(Very expensive exchange rate, for European players though!)

Good point L_Amour!!! My prices, posted in Pond Friends are the GBP (UK Sterling) prices. So it's whatever your usual price is in your own currency, but 2x the gold, as L_Amour says.

I better go and annotate that screenshot of mine in Pond Friends straight away....

Wow, lucky you! My gold is on sale too, but only double, 80 bars for $5.49. Not sure why its different? Anyway, i think i might buy twice as much as i would have, i guess this sale won't be back soon......

If I remember correctly the last big gold sale was a few days before Labor Day, and then for Labor Day there was a tremendous sale on just about everything. Some people were unhappy about not purchasing gold when they found out about the attractions sale.
Wellllllll I'm buying gold today! Halloween is next week and I'd be willing to bet Dark Manor will have a Great Halloween Sale!! And if I'm wrong, I still can use the gold

Just a thought.....

My machines have let me build up as much gold as I will probably ever need since I'm a the end of the game but good grief it's hard to resist this sale!!!

I raced home from work to take advantage of the gold sale only to get the server down for maintenance message.

I bought my gold this morning it was a double amount of gold at reg price and early this afternoon the game went down for maintenance and still is. arrrrg wanting to spend some gold. One of the times that I tries to get back in it told me to upgrade. so I did, it now has a different icon but still wont let me in.

Hope this sale is still going on when I get back - unlike the $20 sale this sale applies to increments that I'd be willing to spend on an IAP. *crosses fingers*

It figures that there would be such a fantastic sale when most people can't even get the game to play because of 'server maintenance'. FIGURES! What a rip.
