That's quite a leap from 315 to 1550.

Was I the only one who actually liked the 900 point bundle (even moreso before it was raised by a dollar)?

And is there a reason only 4 point bundles can be sold at the same time? How about bringing back the 900 point bundle in conjunction with the current bundles?

Seriously...that's huge leap from almost nothing to 1550 points...I just think there should be a middle-ground bundle, too.

Agreed. That seems to be the pain threshold for me as well and I'm gainfully employed.

That was awesome, more so for the fact that it was easy for my math weak brain to figure each point was about a cent.

Not like that stops me from spending like a drunken sailor in there anyway. ;)

Can someone post up the old Turbine Point packages for comparison?

I believe they just added teh 4300 point option. The rest look the same or so close it doesn't matter.

That being said I only buy points when it is a penny a point. i.e 5000 for $49.99.

I don't think they want to do it either, because then we could approximate how much each item costs in the store with real money

like TR being 13.50 then

Same here. I have about 2000 points left currently, and I expect that will last me until they put the 5000 point packs up again.

Thats how I feel too.

Heck, they could drop a 7500 pt and 10,000 pt bundle... see how many of us bite on those. :)

Thats one small step for man...

One GIANT leap for Turbine!

I to am a little disappointed at the disappearance of the 11.99 bundle. That was the one I had bought religiously every month since I switched to Premium. I guess I am going to have to switch to spending 20 bucks every other months. I can't see how that is a win of Turbine or me. :(

New promotion (50% extra bonus points) means the 48.75 bundle gets you 4950 points. Less than a penny each.
