I thought "What the heck" about "Are the Xmas Boxes worth it" and bought another $99.99 box. I already have all the vehicles WG is giving away and all my books are full. I did this just to get Prem days, Gold, Credits and garage slots. I received 69 Prem days, $38,650 in Gold, 3,800,00 Credits with 4 garage slots. The $99.99 bundle for Gold/Credits gives 10k Gold and 10 mil. Credits. All I really care about is the Gold equivalent. To balance, if I bought 6.2 mil. of Credits for 15,500 at 400/1 (Which I didn't, I'll earn the Credits and keep the Gold) I would still have a surplus of Gold at 23,150. Minus the 10k I would normally have gotten leaves 13,150 extra Gold. To buy that much Gold would cost $56.38. So I figure in the end for the same $99.99 I received all that I normally would get plus 130% the amount of gold. Prem days/garage slots are a bonus, but insignificant to my point. And this is not even to mention all the "In game" bonuses, Credits boosters and such we have been playing with. I see the value in the Boxes and believe it was a good promotion. Any new Player would have greatly benefited from it. I did this to counter all the bashers out there, test my math/English skills and the fact that I've had a BUNCH of coffee this morning. Hahaha, Happy tanking.

I agree with you for myself I admittedly got carried away but still came out ahead in the game.

OP said he has all the tanks available.  The high gold amount is probably mainly due to gold compensation.

I would assume that the gold includes the gold from winning premium tanks, he says he got 4 garage slots so that would be 4 tanks. I opened 25 boxes this morning (after much coffee) and got a Defender, two KV-220-2s and a Turan III Proto, but since I already had all of those I got the gold instead, as well as the garage slots. I was shocked not to get an M4 Improved as those are the most common I have seen.  The boxes are far and away the best deal on getting gold.  If you are trying for an IS-3A you may get lucky quickly or you may come up dry after 100+ boxes.  I bought the IS-3A way back when it was first sold so that was not a consideration for me.

 

This is what I got the last time I recorded the contents of 25 boxes, excluding ornaments:

31,850 Gold, 1,600,000 credits, 5 garage slots and 6 days Prem Acct:

500 Gold

250 Gold and  KV-220-2 (1500 Gold and Garage Slot)

250 Gold and 1 day Premium

250 Gold and 100K Credits

250 Gold and 1 day Premium

250 Gold and 1 day Premium

250 Gold and E25 (6700 Gold and Garage Slot)

500 Gold

750 Gold

250 Gold and 1 day Premium

500 Gold

250 Gold and 1 day Premium

250 Gold and M4 Improved (1750 Gold and Garage Slot)

500 Gold

250 Gold and 500K Credits

500 Gold

250 Gold and 1 day Premium

250 Gold and Skorpion G (10900 Gold and Garage Slot)

250 Gold and LeFH Arty (1500 Gold and Garage Slot)

1250 Gold

500 Gold

250 Gold and 100K Credits

It was 75 boxes, and like ExploratorOne said, I have all the tanks. I believe I got the E25, two M4 exp., and a Turan III. Great deal for Gold. Coffee wore off, :(
