Hearthstone is one of Blizzards best video games and I don't say that because it's free. 😀 What starts out as a simple card game quickly evolves into so much more. It's part strategy, part planning, and a big part luck.
At the heart of Hearthstone is collecting cards and purchasing packs is the quickest way to do so. Each pack comes with 5 random cards for you to keep forever as you battle and build your decks.
Currently, Blizzard charges the following prices in-game.
- 2 packs / $2.99 ($1.495 per pack)
- 7 packs / $9.99 ($1.427 per pack)
- 15 packs / $19.99 ($1.332 per pack)
- 40 packs / $49.99 ($1.249 per pack)
- 60 packs / $69.99 ($1.166 per pack)
Better Hearthstone Pack Prices
Meanwhile, Amazon sells Amazon Coins at a $1 to 100 ratio. These coins can ultimately be used to purchase Hearthstone packs in place of your credit card.
In fact, if you make your purchases through Amazon, you only pay the following.
- 2 packs / $2.97 ($1.48 per pack)
- 7 packs / $9.70 ($1.385 per pack)
- 15 packs / $19.40 ($1.293 per pack)
- 40 packs / $46.50 ($1.162 per pack)
- 82 packs / $87 ($1.06 per pack) Best Deal!
As you can see, purchasing in bulk via Amazon Coin has significant advantages. In almost every case, you can get the same amount of packs for less money. Meanwhile, if you opt for the biggest stash, you not only get a much better rate but 22 additional packs!
How to Get Cheaper Hearthstone Packs
After purchasing your Amazon Coins, you have to install Hearthstone from the Amazon Appstore onto an Android device. If you don't have access to an Android device, you can use a free Android emulator on your PC. After downloading, install and launch the emulator, then proceed.
Whether on your Android or emulator, your next step is to launch Hearthstone and login to your Blizzard account. Now purchase the packs and you'll pay with your Amazon Coins.
Unfortunately, as of 2018, there isn't a way to pull this deal off on iOs or Macs.
I've been a Hearthstone addict for years and this was new to me, so I wanted to share!
