It's sad, because along with extending the premier club offer longer than usual, these things display how desperate Jagex has become: premier club has stopped selling well, and now they're struggling to sell keys as well, so they have to add even more incentives for people to buy them. :(

The Umbral Chest is just a gift for the money you spend on buying 450 keys. It costs $0.00. :D


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.
