The AJ Outfitters Scam

This might be something that every other AJ blog out there posted already but I feel like posting this anyway. So, AJ Outfitters sells gift certificates for gems and diamonds that cost real-world money
Normally I would complain that you could be buying membership with that money instead of currency that you'll use in 5 seconds but that's not what this post is about (also compared to the prices of gems and diamonds, the sale on the Play Wild Pack seems like a pretty good deal - still, you could be buying membership with that money or maybe even an amiibo lol)

This post is supposed to be about the gem certificates and why there is no reason to buy gem certificates when the diamond ones exist
I've never bought anything from AJ Outfitters so I don't check it that often, so this has gone unnoticed by me until now - the gem certificates are scams (in more ways than one)

So let's say you have 10 USD (I have to use USD for this because as far as I know there's no currency changer thing on here) to waste and you want to buy gems in AJ. You buy the 10k gem certificate with 10 USD and are slightly satisfied that you don't have to play 5 minutes of Best Dressed. Well guess what? You know what else you can get for 10 USD? Probably a lot of things, but the thing I'm talking about is a gift certificate for 10 diamonds! I know you wanted gems and not diamonds, but the Diamond Shop has a diamond to gem converter!

These are the prices:
1 diamond -1000 gems
4 diamonds - 5000 gems
7 diamonds - 10000 gems
10 diamonds - 15000 gems

To me, that in itself is a scam. You're only guaranteed one diamond a week (and that's only if your a member) so why should you only get 1000 gems for one diamond? Gems are available every day of the week while diamonds are only available on Tuesdays (not counting the daily spin)
under 250 gems or so, maybe 1 diamond for 1000 gems would be worth it. But nowadays when items like Jamaaliday Branch Antlers or basically any Rare Monday/Epic Wonders item exist, spending your "valuable" diamonds on gems seems like more of a waste. On the bright side, the more diamonds you spend on gems the more gems you get. For example, if you buy the huge chest of gems for 10 diamonds you're getting 15k gems but if you spend the same amount of diamonds on the small bags of gems you're only getting 10 gems for the same price

So, like I said, you can get 10 diamonds for the same price as 10000 gems. Since the gem chest in the Diamond Shop gives 15000 gems for 10 diamonds, why buy the gem certificate when you can buy the diamond one can get 5000 extra gems for the same price?
You can also get more gems from buying diamonds than you can with the other certificates. If you have 20 USD to waste spend you can buy 25000 gems or 25 diamonds. With 25 diamonds you can get 36000 gems, which is 11000 gems extra. That's about 30% more for the same price!
The 100000 gem certificate is 60 USD and for that price you could buy 3 of the 25 diamond certificates for a total of 75 diamonds. With 75 diamonds you can get about 111000 gems which is also 11000 extra gems. And that's only if you spend all the diamonds you get on gems. If you buy gem certificates you can get the same amount of gems as the gem certificates and still have a couple of diamonds left over! So what's the point of buying gem certificates? And if AJ changes the gem amounts, what would be the point of this post?

I don't know how to end this post so I'll use a classic "k bye"

  2. That's very true. I never thought of that. Why waste your diamonds on gems when you could be buying a new animal or something. Nonmembers cant buy much in the diamond shop either so the diamond shop is basically a scam to the nonmembers to:/

    1. Another complaint about diamonds - members are already paying for the game (in a way) so why should we have to pay even more for extra items?

    1. Short version:
      If you want to buy AJ currency with real money, buy diamonds instead of gems. You can use those diamonds to get more gems than you could by buying the gem certificates

  7. Hey Mel, remember that blog I told you about. Well the owner quit and published everything. I swear it's like Blue 2. She even has the truth trio, New teacher, evil teacher, same alien monkey, family kidnapped, sleeping family, dude even the ending is the same. And of course I'm now rude and caused the downfall of the blog for telling the owner that. But she did it intentional because every minor detail but the plushies, places, and names are the exact same. Read it, I promise you you'll find it way too similar. Abunnynameddaisy.blogspot.com
