What do you spend gold on?

I used to spend gold only on building upgrades (not to accelerate, just if I was within spitting distance I'd finish up with 100 gold or so). Now, I'll occasionally buy the 3 extra crates when I know at least one will be a gold crate. I'm also using it (this weekend, at least) to speed to weapon/armor upgrades since I'm earning XP/getting to the cap faster than the stuff is upgrading.

What do you all use it for? And why?

    Spend for the extra gold crates sometimes if my xp is maxed to speed up a weapon or survivor to make room for xp and every now and then to heal or buy a lil gas and sometimes when I'm a phone or 2 short for a 15 phone callouts to feed my fallout addiction lol

    Rarely on hospital bills.
    Never on finishing an upgrade

    Survivor slots when I was first starting out, but almost always on crates now.

    I hoard it and upgrade my council with it. The amounts and timing always just seem to work out perfectly. When I max the council, who knows what I'll spend it on. Then again, who knows what the next update will bring. If I delete the game, I'm gifting my guild with it.

    Gold uses:

    #1) Survivor slots (now max)
    #2) Gas
    #3) The occasional moment when I have a gold and 2 silvers unopened after a mission and only 3 boxes left...
    #4) guild gift when I disappear for a little bit and they bring me lots of goodies while I was away.
    #5) hoard for a rainy day (when 2xp and unlimited gas is available for gold, I'll be going nuts!)

    Survivor slots mainly and occasionally to finish off training if I'm about to cap XP and need to spend more, now I have 24 survivor places no idea what the max is but I only use 18 so the rest are wasted just saving now fir whatever the future holds

    I spend gold rarely for mission boxes if it results in a GUARANTEED gold box and 2 silvers or 2 gold boxes ... ie if my first 3 plus video 3 don't land them.

    I also will use them to speed up a gear or survivor upgrade if I ever hit the 2.5 million xp cap.

    Otherwise I save them.

    Gold boxes if they don't open with the free or after-video picks.
    Problem is the amount of rare gear in them though. That much, I'm starting to think about saving my gold instead....

    It's only the gold I've won though. I never buy it!

    - Gas, but only rarely
    - occasionally finishing upgrades on survivors/buildings that were initiated with XP or supplies but only after the cost has dropped below 50
    - NEVER on crates
    - Nothing else

    I don't pay for anything in the game, so the limited gold I get from doing missions is only used if I have a Gold Ticket available and my first pick doesn't get it and I don't get a video extra.
