    I've been tempted to try buying zGold a few times now, mainly when a game I have on my wishlist is on sale on one of the stores which supports zGold and provides and additional discount, however I'm put off by the fact that the smallest amount you can add currently is $30 USD, as I'm mainly spending under $10...

    Does anyone else want more options, and what sorts would you like to see?

    I think everyone would like pay what you want, but that's defeating it's purpose. It's basically a loyalty program. You'll probably never hit $0 or really close to it. I bought $30 of gold, and a $21 game. Then I bought a $10 game...which made me buy another $30 of gold. So now I have $29 in gold that will keep me coming back and that's their whole idea.

    So that part I understand, but I really don't like the spending gold for silver ratio's...a $29.99 game is worth 1000 silver and a $30 game is worth 3000 silver. Or if you spend $70 on a brand new game you still only get 3000 silver. That should be just exactly what you pay you get in silver.

    Exactly. I've been doing the same thing, but I don't mind. I'm going to buy the games always, why not enjoy the extra discounts (when offered) and rack up the zSilver. ;)

    How much zSilver have you earned from your zGold purchases do you think? Enough to actually redeem anything yet?

    Yeah it's why I suspect it'll never be a 'Pay what you want' option, but I definitely wouldn't mind at least one tier lower than $30 to top up with :)

    Definitely enough to redeem, my first few purchases had the bonus zSilver promotion going still, which gave 6,000 zSilver when you spent 3,000 zGold. I've also made a few purchases at the current rate of 3,000 zSilver for 3,000 zGold spent.

    Nice! They just updated the pricings so there's some new stuff but also most things are more expensive now (about 33% more expensive it seems, stuff that was 150,000 now costs 220,000)

    It would be perfect if they added $ 5 and $ 10 options.

    It can't be called a loyalty program if you can only zGold in 2 stores (not even Razer's own store) and a handful of games
