Are Clash Royale Special Offers Worth Buying?



The popular game Clash Royale continues to get better each and every month. From new cards, game improvements, new Clan Battle challenges and more. Last year Supercell introduced special offers. Discounted in-app purchases that millions of players loved. They’ve been appearing more and more, especially in the big March Clash Royale update. Are they worth it though? Read on to find out.

Special offers come in the form of “Arena Packs” or just bundle deals that offer huge savings. Things like Gold, Gems, and new cards to help game progression and upgrades. As we all know, Clash Royale relies heavily on in-app purchases, or even a “pay-to-win” game. That aside, yes, the special offers are abolustely worth buying.

The March anniversary update is now here, celebrating the games first birthday. It has been on the market for one year. As a thank you, the developers added tons of new Special Offers you won’t want to miss. Including a straight up free Magical Chest for all players. Below are more details on both, what to expect and more.


Since being released we’ve seen a lot of questions and complaints about the Arena Packs or Special Offers. Mainly because they don’t show up in order, or the right arena. Not to mention there’s a new level 11 arena pack, and a huge “draft challenge” chest where players get to pick what they actually win in the purchase. We also are hearing complaints that many bought an offer but didn’t get it. Losing money for nothing.

How Special Offers Work

A notification will appear in the game that players have a new special offer. These are Arena Packs or even “Epic Packs” to help us advance in the game. Get new cards, upgrade troops, or earn gems and gold for upgrades or Tournaments. Make sure to check out the brand new March Draft Challenge special offer. It’s $24.99, which is a lot, but extremely lucrative. You’ll get 100,000 gold and get to choose what cards you get. Including selecting from one of two Legendary cards. It’s a win win.

According to Supercell, these arrive once a week. When you unlock or reach a new Arena the Arena Pack Special Offer will appear within 1-2 days. It is a $9.99 purchase and only available for a limited time. If you aren’t seeing the pack for the Arena you are currently in, that’s because eventually players will get a pack for every Arena they’ve reached. Those in Arena 11 will eventually see a Legendary Arena Pack with a free Legendary card. If you don’t buy it within the time limit, don’t worry. It will be offered again, eventually. After a few weeks of rotating through all of your achieved arenas. Now that we have a new Hog Mountain arena expect that offer to surface, along with a new Legendary offer for those above 3,000 or 3,800 trophies.


Keep in mind that Special Offers are a one-time purchase. By that we mean you can only buy any specific Arena Pack once, and once only. If you purchase the Arena 9 special offer, you won’t be able to buy it again. I passed on mine, and am waiting for the all-new Legendary card to be released before I buy it.

Again, a new Arena Pack Special Offer will appear once a week. Don’t worry about missing out if you can’t or don’t buy it. It will be offered again in the future or until it’s purchased. The new special offers being made available in March are some of the best we’ve seen yet.

The latest Special Offers deliver huge savings

Are Special Offers Worth Buying?

Upgrades and new troops in Clash Royale are extremely expensive. One of the most expensive out of any mobile game on the market. I’ve seen YouTubers spend $5,000 in one sitting, and they still haven’t maxed out all troops in the game for battles. People can spend thousands and thousands of dollars. On the flipside, the game is just as enjoyable without spending a cent. You’ll just progress at a much slower pace.

With that said, are the Special Offers for each Arena worth buying? Absolutely. Doing the math here, and shown in the corner, users are getting 5-times the value. It’s a $9.99 purchase, and that $10 gets players $50+ worth of content. Not to mention tons of gold to use on upgrades.


Most offers are anywhere to 3x-5x in savings, which is a big discount. Shown above is my latest Arena 9 Special Offer. For $9.99 I will get one Legendary Card, 1200 gems and 100,000 Gold. Lets do the math.

Value & Savings

One Legendary card usually costs 40,000 gold, which is almost $20 in gems. We also receive 1200 gems which itself usually costs $9.99. Then as a kicker buyers will get 100,000 gold which costs nearly $40 or 4500 gems. That’s essentially $70 worth of goods for only $9.99. If you buy all that on its own without the offer, it will be over $70 total. So yes, buy the offers if you can.

Or another way to look at it buyers get 100,000 gold and a Legendary card absolutely free. If it isn’t an Arena 9 pack it could have a Super Magical Chest, Giant Chest or other chests which are typically expensive as well. So a bunch of cards for upgrades absolutely free.

All said and done, yes. Clash Royale special offers are extremely worth it and a great investment for players. If you can’t afford them, download the app called Google Opinion Rewards. You earn real money for answering surveys every few days. I’ve earned over $115 using it in the past year. Every month or so I earn enough to buy some movies, apps, and purchase content in Clash Royale.

The next time a special offer is available spare $10 and enjoy all the gold, which will help with upgrades. Good luck, Clash on, and check out our 10 tips for beginners if you’re new to the game.

    That’s an error : “users are getting 5-times the value”

    I’ve purchased the pack and i got only one not 5 times

    Do you know why ?

      Well if you bought 100k in Gold, 1200 Gems, and 1 Legendary Card for $10 you got at least 5-times the value.
      Non-sale item prices:
      100k in Gold costs = 4500 Gems = $40
      1200 Gems = $10
      That alone, not including the legendary card, is $50 worth of goods. Which is 5-times more than the $10 you paid. Add a legendary card that is worth about another $20 and you are doing much better than 5-times more value.

      That help?

    In my opinion, the arena 7 pack is the best deal. It’s only $10, you get a super magical, enough gold to upgrade the cards recieved from the super magical, and enough gems to buy 2 legendary chests. It showed up in my shop a while ago, can’t wait to see it agian!

    I am soooo pissed, mad, and sad they changed arena 9 offer!!! It had 100k gold before and now it gives 10k… I didnt buy it last time cause was coming from break, and thought wont be playing for too long….

    the best value pack is arena 9 (jungle arena) because it gives you a super magical chest, enough gems to buy two legendary chests, and it adds to your current gems, so you may be able to buy another legendary chest, plus the gold that comes with it will help you upgrade the MANY common cards and rare cards you will receive from the super magical.

    Also, a quick clarification. If you buy an arena 9 value pack, and you reach arena 10, can you still buy the arena 10 value pack?
