Do you "spend" your Pogo tokens, or just let them accrue?

Hi I see many players with, it seems, millions of tokens. Right now I have about 4 and a half million tokens. But I have "spent" some, either on mini items or sweepstakes. What about you? Do you spend your tokens on anything? Do you dress your mini? Change it's clothes? Do you enter the contests at all? Or do you just like to see the numbers grow? I have always wondered how people use their tokens.

Glad to hear that you have earned millions of tokens. Are you an active member in pogo? What games do you usually play?

Hi Verity. I have belonged to Pogo for about 5 years. I play almost every day. I think my favorite games include Majong Solitaire, Qwerty, Scrabble and many of the solitaire card games. I also like Lottso and Phlinx. What about you?

Hi Marie, yes, I played, too, but only the scrabble. I do not know how to play about the other games. Well, may we can play scrabble when am available. Thanks in responding.

I spent some when I first joined but now I really have no interest in the tokens so they have mounted up. I'm not into all the gimmicky mini stuff so I just chose an outfit/background I liked & stuck with it. Its still snowing from last winter.....

I just let my pogo tokens build up. Very rarely I will spend them. If I do then I jus tspend them on sweepstakes even tho I never win at any of em. I can't wait 4 the day til I acutally do win something on pogo besides Screensavers/Wallpapers. That would be amazing!

I only spend tokens on my mini. I change her clothes every month or two usually and what I spend on her doesn't even come close to adding up to what I make in that time. I don't spend them on contests or anything. I think on Pogo that tokens are almost a status symbol. The more tokens you have the more you play and the longer you have been a member. Right now I have close to 6 million. It boggles my mind how some people have 45 or 50 million.

I usually just let the tokens build up i dont use them hardly. I wish they would let u cash them out for real money though for as how much we take n time to play to earn them ya know? Sometimes I will spend some though on the drawings they have etc....But not always.

I have spent some of my tokens at first I was trying the sweepstakes but decided I will never win one of those when people with over 30 million tokens can put in 1 million tokens in the drawing I don't have a chance with 300 thousand I do dress my mini up a bit but am going to try to get to 1 million tokens by the end of the year as a goal.

Once in a while I enter the daily/weekly and monthly cash drawings. I also 'buy' mini items now and then. Mostly though, they just pile up. They used to show you available tokens and lifetime tokens, but I think they got rid of the lifetime token count, at least, I haven't been able to find it since they redid the personal pages.

I've never really used my tokens until recently and that was for my mini. I changed the hair, which was the only thing I splurged on until Halloween came along. Then I spent some to become a witch and added a background. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to decorate for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I'm leaning more towards doing it. It's not like my tokens have anything else better to do. They're just sitting there. LOL

I use up my tokens each day on the sweepstakes. The odds of winning are really poor, but I try anyway.

I actually spend some of my tokens on my mini sometimes. I don't try for the sweepstakes because my luck is really bad and I'd never win anything anyway. I also like to see how much I can get sometimes and I'm pretty proud when I get another few thousand.

I like to buy items for my mini. I haven't actually entered a sweepstakes for quite sometime on Pogo, so I don't spend them often on contests. I think buying mini items is where my weakness lies. I haven't quite reached 1million tokens yet but I am pretty close so it's hard to tell how many tokens I'll end up collecting here soon.

I spend a few from time to time but usually just let them add up....I don't know why. I guess I just don't really think about it....I just love playing the game.
