Having another sale might be a good way to attract some of those Facebook/Twitter followers that have not signed up here yet. There are thousands of them who have not signed up yet who might be more tempted if you promote the sale on Facebook/Twitter.
I could get behind a credit sale if it was only for new user accounts. That would also be a self-correcting problem.
Keep in mind that selling credits shouldn't necessarily be viewed as a way to make money. Leap brings in dollars per transaction. If they put money from credit sales (I won't even call it revenue) into an account then possibities open up. When we lose people, they could actually offer to buy it back and avoid an inflation spike. For the Goozex refugees among us imagine this: The ability to both grow and shrink the currency according to the user base. Not saying leap is doing that but saying they could. Offering credits at a discount makes that more difficult.
You wouldn't have to keep it at 100% of currency levels, you could borrow against the account to run promotions or grow the business etc . . . but the idea would be to keep enough cash on hand to buy back currency (say at 90% of what you sold it) not all the time, but when you thought it was necessary. I would, based on VGFive history, cap the amount of currency any one individual could sell.
