Why 24 Hours?

I applaud Kabam for the nice deals. Finally something worth spending on... However, pay day is 48 hours away, and these deals will be gone before that. Guess I miss out on this one.

Why limit your sales?

    I agree, I've had that situation many of times and it's so annoying.

    Just put it on a credit card.

    @Draco2199 I deliberately do NOT use my CC for this. If I want something in a game I will buy the Apple or Google Play cards. My CCs are used for real life emergencies. That's a setup that I can't justify messing up regardless of how good the deal is. Lol.

    @neb No offense taken. I've easily put in low 5 figures into this game over the 2.5 years it's been around, but I only ever use "disposable income" and that is not in the budget this week. Come Thursday, I'd be flush again. Lol.

    Oh, I was just saying if you would buy it in 2 days put on your card and pay that off right away. No interest is charged then.

    @Draco2199 it's tempting. I just don't know if I will then fall down the rabbit hole of always putting stuff like this on the cards and then spiraling into debt oblivion. Hahaha. I'm weak like that. That's why I have so far managed NOT to add CCs to my apple and google accounts.

    As long as you know that its a one time thing you will be fine.

    I can relate. Lol. I've already spent 3 figures in the last 5 days. It's usually how it works. I'll have to let them pass.

    I get paid monthly so not for another 10 days, miss a lot of deals like this for that reason and don't have a credit card

    Wasn't directed at you. Just the ones that Flagged it for no reason. Not that I care. Doesn't bother me a bit. It's just amusing to see people behave like that.

    it's unfortunate kabam offers these deals for 24hours only.
    it should be 3 days

    Please don't take this the wrong way but If you're living paycheck to paycheck maybe this game isn't the best way to spend your money.

    Lol you douche, maybe with that pay check they have to pay rent, mortgage, food for family, petrol, bills, clothes etc and have kids.

    Not all are living in their parents basement free of charge. So it is a valid point the 24 hour rule can suck.

    You are a moron

    Couldn't agree more. The specials & promotions need to be offered multiple times in the week they're released. Or run them for longer periods of time.
    I happen to be a single father of 2. So 99.99% of my money goes towards my daughters & the things they need. I generally set aside $15-$30 each pay for myself. But stuff happens & sometimes I have to raid my stash for emergencies.
    As my luck is generally that of the bad kind, I had to use my mcoc funds for an emergency. An hour before the deal was released. Wouldn't you know it the other kick in the crouch.... I get paid tomorrow, Thursday 07-06-2017 between 7 & 9 am eastern time.
    A lot of people playing this game have spent ridiculous sums while doing so.

    Kabam/Netmarkable.... Please, please, please extend the promotions!?!?!??!!!?????

    And of course Laban has not responded. Makes me beyond angry.

    Kabam* auto correct hates me.

    Something like, "we've taken this feedback to marketing" would suffice.

  • It's to create impulse purchases. So people think something is rare and they don't want to miss out on it cause that'll make them feel bad.

    This is the main reason. Plenty of studies have been done in similar situations and Netmarble/Kabam knows that 24-hours is the "sweet spot" for deals like this. Offer it for less time and not enough people will take part, offer it longer and people would have too much time to think on it and eventually pass (or forget.) With such a limited window they must have the data that backs up this is what makes them the most money.

    Actually, I spent about $150 on Units because I was dealing with lag, and I was trying for 2099. Lol. I passed on the Offers because I didn't want to extend my budget for it. I was just saying that it usually works out that Deals come after I've spent what I wanted. Lol. Just timing. I've spent thousands on the game. My choices are my own. I don't really hold anyone else responsible.

    I guess there's data on that... I just figured the longer the purchase was available, the more sales they would have.
