Hi, Wizards! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, full of lots of food and fun. And what comes after Thanksgiving, but Black Friday sales! So, continuing last year's tradition, it's FeedBLACK friday!

Throughout the year, we have a lot of sales and special events around the Spiral, everything from our "Palooza" sales that provide big discounts to certain Crown Shop items to surprise sales that can save you up to 50% off our Online Bundles. What's your favorite Wizard101 sale and why?

Have a good day of shopping and a wonderful weekend! See you in the Spiral!

I truly enjoy the gear and amulet sales, so that i can buy more tubular gear worth the crowns i paid for. Just like back in the day when things were cheaper and times were simpler. But also for style. Every true storm wizard has style!

Stay turbulent,

The terror hoard packs!!! SO GLAD THEY WERE 50% OFF!!!

I have been trying to get the Eye of the Soothsayer wand for months on my life wizard, and I have spent over 15000 crowns trying for it. I was planning on getting crowns sometime near Christmas, but when the sale went on, I was thinking, "Now's the chance!"

So I bought 10,000 crowns and after opening about 11 packs, I GOT THE WAND!!!
It was an amazing feeling like I had won the lottery. And I had about 7800 crowns left over!

Thank-you SOOOOO much for the Palooza Sales KI, you made my entire week!

#1 the 60,000 crowns for $60 because that is like 1 or 1/2 of a new area for only a BUCK.

#2 the 1 year membership for $60 that's only $10 more than 6 months

#3 the BEST OF THE BEST sale because who wants to pay 7500 crowns for saber cat when you can get it for 3250!?!

i'd definitely have to say the mega snack pack bundle sale.
of all the items in the store it's by the the most expensive, especially when I make a new character and want to hand craft a specialized pet for them. that takes lots of repetition since it's not guaranteed I'll get the exact stats I want on a pet from the start so I may end up hatching half a dozen pets before I get one that I am satisfied with

I usually just find out when there is a sale. I like all sales. I'm hoping to get my fire wizard learning again. :)

No, sorry Professor, but I can not pick just one favorite sale. No that would be like picking a favorite between food, drink, air, and sleep. I love them all! I shop them all! I want them all!
Could we have a test on transmutation of Reagents instead please? or even the History of Dragonspyre?
anything but choosing a favorite sale.

Definitely love Pack and Pet-A-Palooza.

Both offer chances to get awesome pets and items at big discounts! Since I definitely look forward to BIG time pet training and buying. Plus, new chances at new pets and pet-related items. Everyone from the most casual player to hardcore Pvpers use and benefit from pets.

I definitely enjoy most the mount sales! Every time I see a mount on sale, I rush to buy it. Mounts are probably one of my favorite features in wizard101, and I enjoy collecting them. The recent sale on the Panther and Solar Sabercat mounts was great! Really looking forward to more mount sales!

I like it when mega snacks are half price because I think they should be that price all the time. I wish there was a super mega snacks pack that was all 50 xp. A pack that had ten in it of 50xp would sure help with getting pets to ultra. such a pack would provide 500 xp total. Then all it would take is 4 such packs to get to ultra level if a pet is mega already. Such a pack could cost what the current full price of the mega snack pack is. How hard could it be to create such a pack? another idea about snack packs would be to have packs with nothing but 45xp snacks and 30xp and so on with different prices so people could choose. also have a pet snack pack that could be bought with gold so a gold pack would have like one 50 xp snack and one 45 xp and one 30 xp in it or something like that.

I like it when the double xp for pets happens. It makes leveling up pets go faster and cost less.

I also like it when crown sales happen that make it so a dollar gets 1000 or more crowns.

I wish there was a deal offered that made arena ticket items half or less their usual cost or how about a day when arena ticket items could be gotten without having to have arena tickets. Some players are just not good at pvp but want the arena ticket items.

I loved the sale that went on awhile back on crowns where you could get 60,000 crowns for $30.00 for only 4 days. I wish that sale would come back, I believe a lot of other wizards would like that to. Another sale that I liked was where you could buy any of the old bundles for a limited time. many would also appreciate this sale coming back.

I love it when gift cards are rduced by 25-50%off. Because we don't have Walmart etc here in Australia, I get very excited when one of the store bundles moves online and it's discouted. So far I have gotten the Olympus, Winterbane and Hawkrider

Throwback Thursdays: I like seeing retired stuff being brought back. Maybe you can have a Throwback-Palooza and make it the stuff that went super-duper extra crazy when it was originally released (or when it was announced to be retired) and the Throwback-Palooza last a week or two.

You guys have a lot of great sales, but my favorite are always the crowns sales. They are the best deal on crowns and have become basically the only time I'll buy crowns anymore. Unless I have a crowns "emergency" lol, then I might spend $5 or $10, but that's it and very rare for me to buy them without a sale.

Any time any kind of pack goes on sale is always a good thing.

And it would be nice to see more types of sales that rotate more often. Every few days (or every week) a new "bundle" of things goes on sale like the sale you are currently having. Nothing there interested me aside from Mega Pet Snacks (which are really expensive to begin with) but if those kinds of sales were weekly, I'd keep looking for them.

Gardening and gear sales. Whenever there is this kind of sale, I buy a bunch of crowns and go crazy spending on seeds and the gear I need. Such as Heavy Rain Slippers and Slippers of Perfect Poise.

I really liked the House-o-palooza in August. I don't remember what I got in 2014, but in 2015, I got items from the emperor's attic pack. They include a Royal Fusiller's dress coat which I included in one of my bundles of clothes.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! Hope you had a wonderful holiday (for those who celebrated), and there will be a new topic up shortly.
