Buying PokeCoins on Pokemon Go in Singapore - Which One offers the MOST Discount?

So the madness has finally hit Singapore - that's right Pokemon Go is live in Singapore now. When I got out of the house this afternoon to grab an early lunch, I noticed people with their faces stuck to their phones walking around pretty aimlessly. It is actually pretty easy to spot a Pokemon Trainer - they walk to a certain spot (supposedly a PokeStop) for some freebies, hang out there for a couple of seconds then make their way to the next. In any case, if you are part of this millennial revolution and wish to purchase PokeCoins in the game (how else are you going to get a lure module?!), here's a quick breakdown of which one to get: 

PokeCoins Price (SGD) Price per 100 PokeCoins Discount
100 S$1.48 S$1.48 -
550 S$6.98 S$1.27 14.3%
1,200 S$14.98 S$1.25 15.7%
2,500 S$29.98 S$1.20 19.0%
5,200 S$58.98 S$1.13 23.4%
14,500 S$148.98 S$1.03 30.6%

Obviously it is going to be cheaper as you buy more (yup, you can actually spend S$148.98 on PokeCoins at one go if it is THAT important to you) but some options offer greater incremental discount per dollar if you are thinking about trading up. Purchasing 100 PokeCoins is definitely a bad idea - if you are not that serious about the game but want to get ahead of everyone (or if you are an ambitious business owner), your best bet is 550 PokeCoins at S$6.98 which offers you 14.3% discount. In case you are wondering, buying 1,200 PokeCoins is also not wise - you should choose between 550 or 2,500 for the greatest increment discount per dollar on trading up.
