I just thought of idea as I looked around various sites I usually visit all congratulating me on my birthday yadder yadder and nearly all offered me some kind of birthday gift. Some of these included credit to spend on the site or discounts off products/orders/items. As well as some fun items for my birthday (some print-able birthday hats from microsoft and hats) anyway I wanted to know what people would think if the same could be applied to ROBLOX?
List of ideas for ROBLOX birthdays;
Get a discount off a builders club membership (small %) off BC, (a bigger %) off TBC, (an even bigger %) off OBC (yearly memberships)
A free days worth of standard builders club
A discount on the ROBLOX merchandise store - if the Zazzle ROBLOX store still exists?
If builders club is purchased on the day of the birthday 30 bonus days on a year membership or 3 bonus extra days on a month
ROBUX purchases over £20 are topped up with 10% extra R$
5% R$ cashback on 1 ad that is started on your birthday
Printable ROBLOX themed hats/figures
Personalised ROBLOX themed email to users registered email congratulating them with some swagged out art thrown into the email
Notes: This of course would only work once a year, so a user can’t constantly change their birthday to get the specials as with other birthday special offers on the other sites.
It would be bad for them to offer spontaneous discounts on Robux/BC, because of DevEx and how the currency is linked to a living, breathing economy. All the Robux has to be backed by some stable monetary value in order for things to run smoothly (which is probably one reason why they got rid of Lifetime BC, too much Robux being created without any additional monetary backing). It might also negatively affect regular purchasing of Robux if people just started waiting for their birthday to stock up on Robux/BC.
Plus, people would just set their birthday to the day after the creation of their account.
