SWTOR Buying Companion Gifts

In SWTOR (Star Wars The Old Republic), at Companion Influence level 1-39, the most cost efficient gifts are Rank 1 Green (sold by vendors for 200 credits). At Influence level 40+ the effect from gifts is lowest, and most cost-efficient when you use Rank 5 Blue gifts.
Here are charts showing the relative values of gifts, and therefore how much you should pay if you are looking to buy. Despite Rank 5 Pink gifts being slightly overpriced you should still consider them simply because of the time savings involved.

Influence Gain at Influence 40+ (without Legacy Perks)
We based our numbers on the excellent Dulfy article on version 5.0 Companion Influence in SWTOR.
Legacy Perks, which can increase Influence Gains by up to 30%, will influence these numbers somewhat but not by much.

Rank Green Blue Pink Yellow
1 0 0 0 0
2 13 26 51 128
3 26 51 102 256
4 51 102 205 512
5 77 154 307 768
6 102 205 410 1024

4 0.33 0.66 1.33 3.32
5 0.50 1.00 1.99 4.99
6 0.66 1.33 2.66 6.65

Relative Value of Gifts

Rank Green Blue Pink Yellow
1 0 0 0 0
2 422 844 1,656 4,156
3 844 1,656 3,312 8,312
4 1,656 3,312 6,656 16,623
5 2,500 5,000 9,968 24,935
6 3,312 6,656 13,312 33,247

Vendors exist for the following:
  • Rank 1 Green - 200 credits
  • Rank 2 Green - 600 credits
  • Rank 5 Blue - 5,000 credits
  • Rank 5 Pink - 10,000 credits
  • Rank 6 Yellow - 250,000 credits
Other Influence Ranks
At different Influence Ranks, different Gifts are more cost-efficient (though definitely not time-efficient in terms of actually giving the gifts):
Short of someone dumping gifts cheaply on the Galactic Trade Network, the cheapest way to get gifts is generally Crew Skill Missions which can get you a Rank 5 Blue gift for under 2000 credits, and a Rank 5 Pink gift if the follower has a critical success.
