1. Major Chart Changes
The most important changes you’ll notice when looking at the chart are the “Total number of Collector’s Tokens” and “Collector’s Tokens per one gold” rows. The total number of Collector’s Tokens consists of Collector’s Tokens contained in the bundle and Collector’s Tokens that will be obtained from the Collector’s Reserves when you spend all the currencies from the bundle (with standard conversion values, including 1 gold = 0.3 tokens). This allows us to compare bundles containing different currencies in terms of collection progress.
We also calculated how many Collector’s Tokens one gold is worth when buying a specific bundle. For bundles sold for real money, the conversion rate of 700 gold to $10 was taken as a basis (the reasons for this can be found in the very first article on the topic of comparing bundles). Also, due to the similarity in value of Token Tuesday bundles, we combined them into one column and found the average for each value.
2. Сolor Changes
The following rules apply for the highlighted values’ color choices in the chart:
For the “Collector’s Tokens per one gold” row, a value less than or equal to 0.5 is considered bad (red highlight) since it’s quite close to the standard value of 0.3 and there are usually much better offers. A value in the range of 0.51 to 0.7 remains white and indicates a good value. This is the value of the best bundles containing Collector’s Tokens that were in the in-game shop before the March season. The most profitable bundles are highlighted in green and have a value above 0.7. These are the bundles we advise players to buy if they want to get as many Collector’s Tokens as possible in the long run.
In all three of the bottom rows of values, a red highlight is used to display bundles with a value below 1, which means that it is more profitable to get the same resources through standard conversion methods. The base white color is for values between 1 and 2 and indicates the offers are slightly above average. A green highlight is used for values greater than 2; these are extremely profitable offers in their categories (cosmetics, collection progress, or all together) and should be target by players seeking the most value.
3. Bundle Changes
It seems that Second Dinner has continued to listen to the community and made Collector’s Tokens much more accessible! Collector’s Tokens bundles have become cheaper and more frequent which allows players to spend gold much more efficiently. The average value of bundles has also increased. I mean, just look at the chart! The value of each bundle in terms of collection progress is greater than 1 (with the exception of the joke bundle on April 1 and Mutant Masterpiece). If you look at past bundles, you’ll begin to understand that this is a significant step in favor of the community.
If we take into account that, according to our calculations, you can get up to 2639 gold per season (without spending any money), you can spend it all on the most profitable Collector’s Tokens bundles for a conversion rate of 0.9 Tokens for each gold received during the season. That’s 3x more profitable than exchanging gold for credits if you want to get as many Collector’s Tokens as possible.
4. Cosmetic Changes
This season there will be many fewer bundles featuring cosmetics as the main content; however, there will be new bundles that contain random variants (worth 700 gold when purchased directly through the in-game store). Although the chart above shows the price of these variants to be specific, in reality they’ll cost a little less or a little more for the player depending on the bundle purchased and the variant received.
If we talk about specific bundles, I want to note that the Momoko Magic and Rivalry Week bundles may seem profitable at first glance, but a closer look reveals they might not be. Momoko Magic is a good option for those who really want to get the wonderful variant for Mystique, but the bundle is otherwise average in value.
However, it is worth noting that the exact value of this and other bundles containing gold cannot be accurately estimated in terms of tokens per one gold. For example, if you buy Momoko Magic bundle with real money and spend the received gold on a bundle with a conversion rate of 1 gold to 0.9 Collector’s Tokens, then on average for these two bundles you get the value of 1 gold to 1.1 Collector’s Tokens. But since we don’t know what exactly this gold will be spent on, we use the standard value of 1 gold to 0.3 Collector’s Tokens for bundles sold for real money.
The Rivalry Week bundle, on the other hand, is difficult to recommend to someone. Even with the included Collector’s Tokens, the cost of the bundle is too high. Players who really want to get these variants will have to seriously consider if the price is worth it for them.
The same can be said about Mutant Masterpiece bundle. Its collection progress value is extremely low. 1500 credits for such a price is a very small amount and three variants will cost you only 10% cheaper than a similar purchase in the in-game store.
It is quite possible that this month will be crucial for the evolution of the Marvel Snap in-game economy system. It looks obvious that the developers are again trying to find a balance between price and content for bundles this month. We can only hope that the Token Tuesday bundles will not only remain in the game, but also signal the beginning of something more exciting and f2p friendly.
In the meantime, I suggest you take another look at the chart above and draw your own conclusions about which bundles are worth your money and gold this month. And, conversely, which ones should be avoided.
Have fun and stay safe everyone!

You guys over-value cosmetics, IMO. Token Tuesday is the best deal in Snap, by a long shot. Most players only want tokens (unless they are low CL), so just under 1:1 gold to tokens exchange rate is what matters.
It seems odd to take bundles that don’t include cosmetics and give them a red 0.0 for cosmetic value. It’s just not an applicable grade for them. I’d suggest just putting a dash instead. On the other hand, many cosmetic bundles include a small amount of progression currency (credits and tokens; gold can be converted to variants, so it technically has cosmetic value) as well, and so a grade for progression value is still relevant.
