How Does the Piggy Bank Work?

The piggy bank in Candy Crush Saga stores gold bars. You get more gold bars for the piggy bank by getting stars after beating levels

Once the piggy bank is full, you can pay money to get the gold bars you have stored in it.

Is There Any Way to Open the Piggy Bank for Free?

You can’t open the piggy bank in Candy Crush Saga for free.

The piggy bank is a clever marketing trick to get you to spend some money!

Is Paying to Open the Piggy Bank a Good Deal?

Do I Recommend Opening the Piggy Bank?

I would not recommend spending huge amounts of money on a game like Candy Crush Saga. But I suppose if you were determined to spend some money, I would try to buy all the bundles and discounts you can get.

So I suppose if you consider things from that viewpoint, the piggy bank is a great deal. But I still feel like there are better options.

Gold Bar Prices Compared

  • The piggy bank gives 30 gold bars for $3 (USD). This means each gold bar costs 10 cents each.
  • Buying 50 gold bars costs me $8 (USD). This means each gold bar costs 16 cents each.
  • Buying ten gold bars costs $2 (USD). This means each gold bar costs 20 cents each.

The Piggy Bank Is a Good Deal but It Is Not the Best

The piggy bank is a good deal when compared to the standard cost of gold bars.

But I would not recommend buying gold bars this way. The bundles and sales in the game give you more things and better prices.

These Bundles Are Better Than the Piggy Bank

I would consider buying these bundles before I pay to open the piggy bank. These discounts often give you many things, and that is a much better deal to me than just gold bars.

  • Candy Chronicles Sale
  • Other Bundles and deals in the store

My Overall Thoughts on the Piggy Bank

I feel the piggy bank is too plain and boring of a deal to buy.

Spending 40 gold bars doesn’t even get you that much either. You need hundreds of gold bars to have any real purchasing power.

Just because something has a good price doesn’t make it worth buying. That is how I feel about the piggy bank in Candy Crush Saga and in most games that have one.

For some reason, mobile developers decided having piggy banks in games was a hot trend to copy. So many match-three games have them.
