Offer: Lunar New Year Offers D3
O1 S$6.98 / US$4.99
With the LNY event being much shorter at 18 days, the regular flow of offers have been modified to squeeze in as many combos as possible. It would not surprise me to see a 3rd tier eventually.

O2 S$148.98 / US$99.99
This offer used to have 5 ETTs, now replaced with 200x S5 Dune coins, effectively 2 summons. I am not sure if this change is permanent.
ETTs are 200 gems each. S5 coin pull is 350 gems.
2x S5 coin pulls => 700 gems
5 ETTs => 1000 gems
=> around 3 S5 summons => 1050 gems
Instead of being generous during the Lunar New Year Festive period, Zynga has decided to shortchange players by removing 300 gems value from this traditional seasonal offer.
It would have been nice if they had made it 300 coins, to give 3 summons. And bump up the value of this offer by 50 gems.
Superstitious folk of Chinese ethnicity believe that the number 3 is an auspicious number. The number 3 sounds like mountain (nature is important in Chinese culture). Mountain can have different significance, depending on the individual : growth, immortality (longevity), spirituality (“sacred manifestations of nature’s vital energy”). There’s loads to read on this topic.
If it had been 300 coins, Zynga would have appeared generous (yeah, 50 gems more) and at the same time imbue their organisation with “longevity vibes”. What’s not to like?!
