This guide will be packed with helpful information about the shop, the purchases within, and what deals are the best in Brawl Stars.
It will be done in USD, so if you are on the Canadian store or another country, the prices will be different.
Gems can be bought in Brawl Stars with real money. In fact, that is the only way they can be obtained.
Gems serve as a premium currency to buy boosts, special offer, and skins.
Like most games with in game purchases, the more you buy at a time, the better the deal.
Below is a chart of each offer, with how many gems you get compared to the others.
|Gem Pack||Price (USD)||Gems/Dollar|
|30 Gems (a fist full of Gems)||$1.99 USD||15|
|80 Gems (a pouch of Gems)||$4.99 USD||16|
|170 Gems (a satchel of Gems)||$9.99 USD||17|
|350 Gems (a bucket of Gems)||$19.99 USD||17.5|
|900 Gems (a crate full of Gems)||$49.99 USD||18|
|1850 Gems (a haul of Gems)||$99.99 USD||18.5|
As you can see, the amount of Gems-per-Dollar spent increases as you spend more money at a time. This increase is minimal, so don’t go spending more money just for a better deal.
However, if you do feel like you will be spending more soon, try to just wait and spend it all on a bigger offer than multiple small ones.
After purchasing Gems, you can spend them on boosts, special offers, or skins.
Below I’ll discuss each along with the best deals.
Special Brawl Box Deals
You can purchase special types of boxes from the shop, starting with the basics: Normal Brawl Box and Big Box.
- Brawl Box = 10 Gems
- Big Box = 80 Gems
I recommend never buying the Brawl Box. For 10 gems, you could end up with an unwanted single elixir or chip. And if you are just dying for a box, 100 coins really isn’t that far away.
As for the Big Box, that’s actually a pretty good deal. It gives you 10 boxes for the price of 8, saving you 20 gems (which could get you a skin!)
Even if you don’t end up with anything you wanted, you’ll get a total of at least 10 items, elixir or chips, and that’s always nice.
Then we have boxes with guaranteed Brawlers. Honestly, the Rare Box isn’t worth it. 30 gems is equivalent to 3 boxes which could easily land you a Rare any day. And if you get a duplicate from the Rare Box, that’s 30 gems spent on a 2 chips. Feels bad.
The Super Rare Box comes at the price of a Big Box, which is essentially 10 boxes. The only reason to choose a Super Rare Box over a Big Box would be if you really want a super rare brawler and don’t have any yet.
As for the Epic Box, that one is worth it. If you’ve been playing for a while, don’t have an epic brawler yet, and the game is getting stale because of lack of new brawlers, go for it.
Don’t get it however if you already have an epic. Even if you want 10 chips badly. Just buy 2 Big Boxes for a lower price; that almost guarantees 10 chips.
Boosters give you a coin boost for a certain period of time or amount of coins. These can also be earned in Brawl Boxes, but to a lesser extent.
Jessie’s Coin Doubler, the first one, doubles the next 1,000 coins you earn. That is essentially giving you a free 1,000 coins, or 10 Brawl Boxes – just over time.
This means if you are a patient person, you can technically be getting the Big Box for 30 less gems. So unless you’re really craving something new, then buy this offer instead.
Second up is the 7 Day Coin Booster, which boosts all coins by 50% for, you guessed it, 7 days.
At most you can probably earn an average of 220 coins a day, considering you level and rank up often. That would mean this gives you 110 coins a day, so 770 coins in a week.
Compared to Jessie’s Coin Doubler, which is 20 coins per gem, this gives a max of 38.5 coins per gem. However, that’ll be about 20 for the average player, and less for inactives.
So if you are very active, go for the 7 Day Coin Booster. This is also the one to buy right before the season ends for bonus coins.
Special offers are one time deals accessible once a certain XP level is reached.
Shelly’s Stash is a Big Box and 80 gems for 2 bucks. Now a normal 2 bucks can buy you 20 gems… so yeah this deal is worth it like hell! That’s 5 times value (according to SC).
If planning to spend money for the first time, definitely go with this. You’ll probably never see a better deal in the game.
Bull’s Bag, buyable at XP level 20 and after Shelly’s Stash is bought, it also a great deal. It offers a Big Box and 170 gems for 5 dollars (the price in picture is Canadian).
Although more expensive and only 3 times value, I still recommend buying it before getting any normal gem offers.
The last special offer as of now is Poco’s Pouch. Same deal with Bull’s Bag: $9.99 for a Big Box and 350 gems. It is a good deal, so if you’re going to spend that much money, might as well spend it on that.
Last but not (actually probably) least, we have skins!
Skins are bought with gems on the Brawlers tab rather than Shop.
Most brawlers only have one skin, with some still that have none (El Primo is the only one that has two). Skins cost either 20 or 50 gems.
Although they don’t directly benefit you at all, they are fun little tokens to have for only a small price. I’d buy a skin for only my favorite brawler(s), but it is entirely up to you.
I hope you found this guide helpful. It was my 5th one! I will be taking a break from writing guides for a while, but will get back to writing hopefully when the next update comes out.
For now, happy brawling!
