For Christmas, I received another $50 Visa card. I honestly have no idea what to spend the money on. Last time I received one of these cards, I spent $35 on my own stuff and bought a DIY for one of my friends with the rest. The card has a service fee that applies after the 3rd month so I'm trying to compile a list of stuff to buy. So far, I have 3 old type A's, and ES 4x4 along with 2 smashed Rubik's 4x4's (1 was even pretooled), 2 Rubik's 5x5's, a V6, Sq-1, ES 2x2, broken pyraminx, chinaminx, and a Magic. I don't have enough to buy a V5 sadly, only off by $3.48 :(. I do have some ideas on what to buy. Here's what I have so far:

-Type C DIY
-Type D DIY
-6x6 and 5x5 stickers

It's not much of a list but it totals to $32.75 including shipping. What should I spend the last $17.25 on?

If you can find a new supernova somewhere, go for it. Otherwise, your chinaminx is just fine, assuming it's broken in enough.

you have 3 months right? I would say dont push it, just wait and see what you want

Get something you dont have in my opinion, and wait a bit, like what if your ES 4x4 somehow breaks in the next month lol

I've decided not to buy anything from Cubesmith this time. That leaves me with an extra $10. Whichever DIY is better for me, I'll buy another. It's tough trying to decide on this kind of stuff...:confused:

Charles, you could get the new tiled megaminx's at C4Y and a new Pyraminx.

I was thinking of getting a V6 with my $100 (not a V7 because 1. It's expensive 2. I probably won't solve it much 3. Misalignments)
