Uhm no...
You just pay for the chest and keys noting is for free number 1 thing you should remember.
Also ask some questions to your self if you consider buying things:
1. Do I need it?
2. How long do I enjoy my purchase?
3. Will it make or hold any value in the future?


You can ask yourself all kinds of questions but you are getting an extra Umbral Chest when you buy 450 keys now. You did not get the Umbral Chest when you bought 450 keys the day before. :)

It actually costs $109.00 to obtain the chest though, as you cannot obtain it without paying this amount.


Just because something is included as extra incentive in an offer doesn't mean it's free, if it was free I wouldn't have to pay anything at any time to obtain it ;)

This is like how you can report the survey companies for falsely advertising an offer as giving free *insert random virtual premium currency you're trying to earn* when you later have to buy their product. It's not free if you gotta pay for it, even if it's simply included as a bonus.


Bonus =/= Free. "Free" is just misleading terminology commonly used to encourage sale of a product.


You also need to pay the same $109.00 to get the same 450 keys a couple of days ago but you would not get an Umbral Chest. By your logics, whoever paid $109.00 for 450 keys last week would have paid for "nothing". :D:D:D:D:D:D
Wrong. If it wasn’t for new chests, there would be no point in buying the 450 keys. So essentially you either don’t buy keys, getting nothing, or buy keys and get the chest. So the chest adds additional value to the offer. And if there was 0 incentive to buy keys before, we can estimate that a the chest itself is worth a good chunk of that $109 price tag.
