I know that there are a lot of people with many lingots out there. Please share your experiments about how you use it! in my humble opinion, I spend all my lingots for hearts :D.

I agree with Lisa, using them to buy hearts to get through the lessons kind of defeats the purpose. Up until the bonus skills I didn't spend them on anything. I'm hoping they contiue offering things like that to spend them on.

I also used to spend my lingots for hearts, then I discovered that I was just barely getting through the lesson with one heart left... the one that cost me 4 lingots! Now, if I can't complete a lesson for free (no buying of hearts) I consider that I don't know that lesson well enough.

I spend my lingots on the 7 day streak challenge, and I always keep the Streak Save for a day equipped, and then I set myself an arbitrary number of lingots to have before I try for something like a certificate. It is funny to me that I am able to tell anyone how many lingots I have, even if I am not near the computer!

I have a streak freeze and timed practice equipped and I buy a wager every week. Other than that, the only thing I've spent lingots on is a certificate every five levels. Now I've bought all the new Spanish lessons and I'm looking forward to buying more new lessons in the future.

I bought a heart refill because of an extremely annoying lesson where I always lost the last heart close to or at the end. I finally got this lesson done and haven't ever used it. I just keep buying the "double or nothing" wager which gives more lingots. ;)

Yesterday, I bought the three bonus skills. Let's see how these are.

On hearts, I agree with Lisa and Bella.

For me, I keep my lingots just in case kewl new things come out. I personally think that doing a lesson without using hearts increases your learning because you're forced to redo lessons until you really understand. That's just me though :)

I also do it this way and I only bought a heart refill once in order to try it out.

I thought this at first, but if you lose your hearts you also lose the points you would otherwise gain. If you lose three hearts you can still redo the lesson but you might as well get the points for the effort you put in too.

I spend my lingots of the Double or Nothing wager every week, and I also have a streak freeze that I bought for just in case but have never used yet. Also, I just bought the three new bonus units. Since I don't have an iPhone, and I would rather go through a lesson over and over until I get it than buy extra hearts, there isn't really anything else to spend them on.

I have duoling on my tablet too and you can get other things like costumes for duo!! I always keep an equipped streak freeze, and i also do the lingnot wagers :) and, whenever i don't have a heart refill equipped i get one. So, i think there are lots of renewable ways to get and spend lingnots!! And, if you have "Too many" then you just give them to others!! :D

I think you have to be on the laptop (or desktop) version, not the smartphone or tablet app of DL, to find streak freeze & double or nothing.

You can click on the Shop icon at the top left or click on your lingot icon (which should take you to the shop). From there, go crazy. This should work on the computer and on tablets.

I think it was something that was commonly done for how the website worked a couple years ago.

I always do the 7 day wager and, since I tend to make stupid mistakes (typos, wrong language, etc.) I do buy the extra hearts. Also, if I miss the 1st or 2nd question, I quit the lesson & start it over again, so I have a better chance of keeping all my hearts and not having to use the purchased one. By making it all the way through more lessons, you can also earn more new-skill & leveling-up lingots. By doing these things I always have enough lingots.
