Cyber Holiday Bundle Rewards
|155 Apocalypse Boosters|
|Kim Jacinto Apocalypse Variant|
|Kim Jacinto Apocalypse Avatar|
|3000 Collector’s Tokens|
Kim Jacinto Apocalypse Variant
Firstly, the 8000 Gold bundle in the Shop is $100 USD or equivalent, and there is no doubt Cyber Holiday is no trivial price point for most people especially as a $2.99 follow up to the Welcome Bundle.
9500 Credits is slightly above value in Gold equivalent (9375), which also allows players to go over the maximum of 5000 Credits.
If the Variant, Avatar, and Booster values are perceived as zero (cosmetics), then we are essentially fast tracking our collection with 3000 Collector’s Tokens equivalent to three Series 3 cards, one Series 4 card, or half a Series 5 card. While the tokens can be earned for free from Collector’s Caches and Reserves, it may take players a very long time to accumulate 3000 of them.
In conclusion: This is a hefty starting price but as a silver lining, Gold can be acquired for free through various ways in Marvel Snap and in theory can be bought without spending real money. In that route, the Bundle is of great value as many players already convert Gold to Credits.
Conversely, a player may be more enticed to purchase the Bundle for real money if there are cards they desperately want from the Token Shop as soon as possible.

That is a steep price!
I’m happy with the season passes but I do think the in game shop is very expensive. If items were cheaper I would probably throw more money at them but I can’t really justify the prices (£9 for a single variant).
Yep, same here. I know they’ve done their numbers, and I guess we are in the minority, but I’d have already bought a few variants if they were about a third of the price. Variants I’ve purchased so far? Zero.
The answer is very simple.
No, this bundle is not worth it. Not only is it not worth it, it’s out of reach for so many people. A $3 Welcome Bundle, a $10 Battle Pass, and then a $100 Holiday bundle? I thought quarterly $60 for Hearthstone packs was pushing it, but Marvel Snap – well – Snapped Hearthstone’s request and nearly doubles it.
Good try, but not me (or 95% of your playerbase).
Not worth, particularly for people that have completed Pool 3. People don’t seem to realise how low the drop rates are for Pool 4/5 cards. 9500 credits sounds like a lot, but it is just under 16 caches: most likely ZERO new pool 4/5 cards.
When I saw the price I had to double check the gold prices to see if they had lowered it’s cost.
£8.99 for a standard variant was already practically prohibitively expensive. £90 is a joke. To me at least. And also pricing it right between bundles so you have to pay more. Nah, this has nearly turned me off the game completely.
I did the same exact thing. I almost shook my head to make sure my eyes were seeing the correct information. I’ve never seen a game come out so boldly and pitch a $100 sale so quickly in its lifespan.
It’s too rich for my blood, but I’ve seen the avatar show up a lot in my matches, so people are buying it. On the bright side, at least it’s purchasable with gold, which can be acquired freely, rather than locked behind a cash wall.
I saw a streamer (OceanMud) who has more than 17K gold saved up and he’s f2p. So it’s possible to amass quite a bit.
Meant to also add that he’s been playing since beta (which is hopefully obvious, but wanted to be clear!)
