Have you bought virtual goods in an iPhone game?

What have you bought? How much do spend? In what games? What is the most outlandish virtual good that you have bought in an iPhone game?

hipstamatic lens pack, but I think buying digital food for 101000101100010-dog (digital-dog) is stupid.

The only consumable IAP I remember ever buying is the premium package in IMO: world of magic. Lol..I don't know I tend to stay away from freemium games with DLC but ones like JCS, Peggle, etc are great add-ons.

Spent an overall amount of $20 on COD, and now I have to convince some people to get it because it's a $25 value.

Lol that's not a virtual good, that's an actual game add on and I also spent the full price of all the maps, having bought the game on day 1.

I don't support Freemium Games with consumable IAP. I did purchase 2 card decks in "Urban Rivals" for 99 cents each though, as you dont lose the content.
