We’ve got a hack to help you stretch your dollar on Genshin Impact to get cheaper Genesis Crystals – simply use a VPN to buy the Genesis Crystals in USD!
Currency exchange is a finicky thing, but learning to monitor it and pay the (often) lower price can have great rewards. Case in point: Genshin Impact’s Genesis Crystals are cheaper in US dollar (USD) compared to Singapore dollar (SGD). This game currency is used to redeem Primogems, which is the primary in-game currency on Genshin Impact for you to redeem wishes and other things.

How much cheaper are the Genesis Crystals in USD compared to SGD? Here’s a table breakdown for comparison:
|Genesis Crystals Pack||SGD||USD||Savings|
|60 crystals||S$1.48||US$0.99 |
|300 crystals||S$6.98||US$4.99 |
As you can see, the cost savings are quite apparent, especially if you buy the 1,980 and 6,480 pack where you can save ~S$4.80 and ~S$14.70 respectively.
Do not purchase the Genesis Crystals in the Genshin Impact game app, because they’ll all be listed in SGD prices. In order to access the USD prices, you’ll need login to the miHoYo top-up centre on your browser.
And just like our sweet A&F hack for cheaper clothes, you’ll need to install the Hola VPN extension on your Google Chrome browser and use it as your VPN plugin. I chose Hola VPN because it’s the most lightweight, browser VPN and I don’t have to install additional software on my computer.
Once the plugin is added to your Google Chrome browser, turn it on, and we’re ready to go. Standby your YouTrip card to pay in USD and take advantage of Wholesale Exchange Rates with no fees! Here’s the step-by-step guide to get your hands on cheaper Genesis Crystals:
Step 1: Login to Your Genshin Impact miHoYo Account
Step 2: Select the Option to Top Up Genshin Impact Genesis Crystals
Step 3: Check That The Genesis Crystals Appear in USD instead of SGD
Step 4: Select Mastercard as Payment Mode
Step 5: Wait For Payment Page To Contact Card Issuer (YouTrip)
